Back in September 2016, when Reliance Jio entered the telecom business in India, back in September 2016, millions of Indians rejoiced as they gained boundless, free, and no hidden obligations 4G LTE data. Jio gave away its SIM cards with 4G data capacities for nothing to any buyers who needed them.
Along these lines, from September 2016 right till mid-April 2017, clients who were eager to line up for the free Jio SIM card could approach free and boundless VoLTE approaches the Jio network, free and boundless calls across India to some other telecom administrator, free and boundless SMS, and free 4G LTE data as well. The main catch was the speed choking that became effective after a client crossed 4GB of 4G LTE data per day, yet even that is an exceptionally liberal breaking point for a complimentary gift. The cutoff points were brought down in later periods, yet regardless of whether you crossed the limit, you could keep getting to the web, though in a choked state.
The freebies that Reliance Jio gave clients shook the Indian telecom space profoundly. Jio offered speed sponsor packs for when customers crossed their cutoff points, yet as a buyer, all you needed to do was hold up out the day and have your liberal cutoff points invigorated at the stroke of midnight. This was a marked difference to the month-to-month data offered by different telecoms in those days. These plans offered 1-3GB of 4G information for the entire month and excluded voice calls and SMS. India bounced from seeing 4G as an extravagance to regarding it as a need, from being parsimonious and extremely conscious about data usage to having one of the most widely available free 4G services practically overnight.
In a half year, Reliance Jio increased 100 Million endorsers for its network. This brilliant ascent pushed Jio from a non-existent element in mid-2016 to the fourth-biggest telecom administrator in India by Q1 2017!
At the point when the complimentary gift time frame finished, Jio proceeded with the slaughter by offering the least expensive 4G data plans the nation had ever observed around then. For a similar measure of cash that a client would have recently paid in 2016 for 1 to 3GB of 4G data for a month (and independently paid for calls and text), Reliance Jio offered a similar data every day, combined with free boundless calling and informing! Granted, the 4G speed on Jio’s network in those days was terrible. However, despite everything, it was a sound trade-off to make for the typical Indian.
Jio has so far ruled the telecom industry as a solo King. And as soon as things started to slip from hand, it is back with a bang.
Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL), during its 43rd annual general meeting (AGM), has declared the pulling in of Google as an investor. The organization has declared Google will contribute Rs 33,737 crore for a 7.7 percent stake in Jio platforms after all guidelines are met. With this, Google will join accomplices like Facebook, Silverlake, KKR, TPG, Intel, and Qualcomm.
Google, as of late, said it would put $10 billion in India through the following five to seven years. With this venture, the organization aims to consolidate its position in the digital ecosystem of the country.

RIL’s Chairman and Managing Director, Mukesh D Ambani, has declared that with Google’s speculation, Reliance has turned totally obligation-free. From now, it may be allowing strategic investments.
Ambani announced that it has partnered with Google to develop and launch a new 5G supported affordable entry-level smartphone. With Google, the company will develop an operating system based on Android to power this affordable 5G smartphone that the company plans to launch soon.
With the help of Google’s partnership, Ambani said, he wants to make India 2G-mukt.
“Google has empowered millions of Indians to access helpful information and, like Jio, is a force for change and innovation. We welcome Google onboard and are excited about our partnership for what it can deliver to Indians, from universalizing Internet usage to deepening the new digital economy and providing a prime mover to India’s economic growth. Together, we hope to play a strong facilitative role in the transformative journey of building a new, Digital India,” said Mukesh D Ambani.
Reliance Jio has designed and developed a complete 5G solution from scratch. It will be ready for trials as soon as the 5G spectrum is available and can be ready for field deployment next year. The announcement was made by Mukesh Ambani at the company’s 43rd annual general meeting (AGM).

“Jio has created a complete 5G solution from scratch, that will enable us to launch a world-class 5G service in India, using 100 percent homegrown technologies and solutions,” Ambani said during the company’s 43rd annual general meeting (AGM).
Jio is betting big about 5G, which will see a thorough rollout expected throughout the following few years. In the future, Jio would be well-positioned to be an exporter of 5G solutions to other telecom operators globally.
Well, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Many huge announcements were made in this year’s AGM. Seems like RIL is becoming Stark industries of real life. Obviously this is huge and Jio is stating its monopoly in Telecom Industry. Other network providers like Vodafone Idea are in huge debts and somewhere this has benefited Jio. We surely can see a huge Revolution in Digital World and Jio shall serve as the solo-King in India.
