reliance jio, jio reliance, rel;iance jio 4g, reliance jio 4g sim, People have been complaining about Reliance Jio’s slowing internet speed on their smartphones.

To the eyes of a layman, it may seem that Mukesh Ambani’s dream of reaching a 100 million subscribers is well on track. However, if the general reaction of people across the social media is to be believed, Reliance Jio is losing the advantage it had gained by providing the service for free. Furthermore, the number of subscribers is bound to go down by a notch, once the Reliance Jio gets officially launched in December.

People have been complaining about the slowing internet speed on their smartphones for a while now. The voice calls have been a major pain for the Ambanis ever since Jio was announced, and it seems that the company hasn’t bothered to take steps to improve it. The network coverage has also been reported to be poor. People have also been complaining about the activation of the SIM and the troubles that come with it.

The following are a few such tweets showing the agony of slow internet and the trolling that follows:

Mukesh Ambani and Co. have invested quite some crores into the project and considering that the product is being made available at such a low price, it is essential that the Reliance Jio reaches the target of 100 million customers. The recovery of profit otherwise would only be the first of the problems, the multi-billion company will face, irrespective of whoever appears to endorse it.

    Everyone has the right to be critical about something but it is undeniable fact the jio has ushered a data revolution in the country and now the inbent operators are caught on a wrong foot, looking at the overall picture it is no mean feat to provide almost unlimited data with speed in mbps in the w country, You gotta agree on that!!!

      You know it's lazy reporting when the article cites "twitter" as it's source and puts together a bunch of tweets gotten after typing a few keywords. The biggest hurdle the network seems to be facing is all the negative publicity media houses are generating in a bid to get more clickable news. These kind of tabloid-ish practices must be curbed, maybe do the research yourselves or atleast get an expert opinion guys!!
