Reliance Jio has launched its ‘True 5G’ services in Assam at an event held in Guwahati. Alongside its True 5G services that were launched in Guwahati, Jio also launched it’s ‘True 5G-Powered Wi-Fi’ services at Maa Kamakhya Temple complex.

Further, Jio demonstrated the transformational benefits of its ‘True 5G’. Amongst the numerous benefits of True 5G, healthcare was the chosen sector for this demonstration, as True 5G not just enriches lives, but also has the potential to save lives in difficult times. Revolutionary solutions such as Jio community clinic medical kit, augmented reality-virtual reality (AR-VR)-based healthcare with JioGlass, smart healthcare solutions like tele radiology, connected ambulance, etc., were showcased. These healthcare solutions can enhance quality healthcare in urban India and assist in spreading quality healthcare infrastructure to the remotest areas of the country, thereby touching over a billion lives.

Launching the services in the state, Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma, Chief Minister of Assam, said, “I am happy to launch Jio’s True 5G service in Guwahati. I believe True 5G has the power to democratise the healthcare infrastructure across the varied geography of Assam. The health solution demonstrated today i.e., ‘Clinic in a bag’ can aid grassroot-level healthcare workers and Asha workers. It has a simple design and can wirelessly connect to a suite of medical devices over 5G. Healthcare workers with the help of specialist Doctors can diagnose and treat patients in even the most remote locations of Assam. My government is fully committed to aiding the speedy roll-out of 5G services in Assam. By implementing 5G-based healthcare solutions, we can fulfil Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission by building a Digital Health Ecosystem in the State of Assam. Apart from their existing investment of Rs 95 billion, Jio is additionally investing over Rs 25 billion to deploy True 5G network in Assam and this shows their immense commitment towards our state’s development. By December 2023, Jio True 5G services will be made available in every town and taluka of Assam.”

Jio will offer free True 5G-powered Wi-Fi inside the temple premises to all the devotees visiting Kamakhya temple. Today, we demonstrated how Jio True 5G technology will benefit the people of Assam and North-East in the field of advanced healthcare with its reliable wireless network. There are many such benefits across agriculture, education, e-governance, IT, SME, automation, AI, gaming, and many more.
