Reliance Jio has extended its ‘True-5G’ coverage in each of the 33 district headquarters of Gujarat, thereby making Gujarat the first state in India to get Jio True 5G coverage in 100 per cent of the district headquarters.

Besides, Jio intends to launch a series of True 5G-powered initiatives across education, healthcare, agriculture, industry 4.0 and internet of things (IoT) sectors in Gujarat and then extend it across the country.

The move is associated with an initiative named ‘Education-For-All’, in which Reliance Foundation and Jio are coming together to initially digitise 100 schools in Gujarat. This initiative will connect schools with Jio True-5G connectivity, advanced content platform, teacher and student collaboration platform and school management platform

Commenting on the development, Akash M Ambani, chairman, Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited, said, “We are proud to share that Gujarat is now the first state to have 100 per cent district headquarters connected with our robust True 5G network. We want to showcase the real power of this technology and how it can impact a billion lives. Education is a focus-area for our Honourable Prime Minister. Imagine the power of having 300-400 million skilled Indians joining the workforce in the next 10-15 years. It will not only give a better standard of living to each Indian but will also help in realising our Honourable Prime Minister’s vision of becoming a developed economy by 2047. Reliance Foundation already runs a program named education and sports for all (ESA), where it enables and empowers youth at the grass-root level with quality-education and opportunities in sports. Jio and Reliance Foundation will take the ‘Education for All’ initiative to a whole new level by using the powerful 5G-tech along with platforms that digitise the schools and bring them at par with the best in India and the world. 5G cannot remain an exclusive service available to the privileged few or those in our largest cities. It must be available to every citizen, every home, and every business across India. Only then can we dramatically increase productivity, earnings, and living standards across our entire economy, thereby creating a prosperous and inclusive society in our country. This is our constant belief, inspired by our – we care – philosophy.”

Starting November 25, 2022, Jio users in Gujarat will be invited to the Jio Welcome Offer, to experience unlimited data at up to 1Gbps speed, at no additional cost.
