"As per Trai MySpeed Portal, Jio's average download speed of 15.0 Mbps in March 2017 is almost twice of any other operator...Jio has the world's largest greenfield 4G LTE wireless broadband network, with over 100,000 mobile towers. And it will add another 100,000 towers to the network in the coming months," Jio statement said.
The 5G technology promises to enable dramatic improvements in peak data speeds, network latency, and agility, as well as the ability to enable new capabilities such as network slicing.
