How To Activate 5G in Jio – In India, Jio 5G services have begun to spread out. For far, the telecom has only launched the services in a few areas.

Remarkable speed and low latency are promised by the Jio 5G, a standalone (SA) fifth-generation cellular connection.

  • If your smartphone does support 5G, then check whether the bands mentioned on the retail box are supported by Jio’s 5G bands in your circle/city.

Jio 5G bands

During the 5G spectrum auctions, Jio bagged the most spectrum bands in India and also came on top as the highest bidder among other participants in the auction. The bands acquired by Reliance Jio are as follows.

  • n28: 700MHz
  • n5: 800MHz 
  • n3: 1800MHz 
  • n78: 3300MHz
  • n258: 26GHz

Jio will be able to spread throughout the nation and provide 5G services even in the most remote areas thanks to low-frequency channels like n28. Even if the internet speeds won’t be as fast as those of other bands, most people will at least be able to experience something closer to 5G. In addition, Jio has adopted the n78 band in practically all of the major circles; the majority of 5G devices on the market use this specific band. Jio has partnered with companies such as Samsung, Cisco, Nokia, and others to construct the infrastructure and source 5G equipment.
