Moreover, Jio leverages the special 700 MHz band to bolster its 5G network reach.


Seamless Connectivity for Pilgrims

Jio’s rapid expansion of its True 5G network over the past year has been remarkable.

Pilgrims equipped with 5G-enabled devices within the True 5G network’s range can enjoy high-speed data transmission, reaching up to 1000 Mbps, at no additional cost.


Last year witnessed Jio’s network coverage extending across Uttarakhand, from the capital Dehradun to the remote village of Mana near the India-Tibet border.

Furthermore, Jio’s 5G network currently serves pilgrims at Sri Hemkund Sahib Gurudwara, situated at an altitude of 13,650 meters.
