Reliance Jio 4G Data speeds to improve in coming days
Around 52 million subscribers taking complete advantage of bandwidth on the network, a lot of users have been experiencing lower data speeds. Ambani mentioned that 92 percent of base stations are offering consistently high data speeds, and it looks to further de-congest the remaining 8 percent in the coming weeks. He also mentioned that 80 percent of Jio users consume less than 1GB of data every day but the remaining 20 percent were consuming “disproportionately higher” amount of data, which was ruining the experience for the majority 80 percent users. To tackle this, the New Year Offer has a fair usage policy limit of 1GB of data daily, which Ambani claims is 30 times the average usage on other networks.
