Reliance Jio, the telecom arm of Reliance Industries, is preparing for a soft launch of its 4G services soon, Credit Suisse said in a note today. For the soft launch, customers should be able to pick up a Jio SIM card for Rs 200, which should come with free data and voice valid for three months (as a benchmark the free usage offered to employees in the December launch was 75GB data and 4500 minutes calls).

Reliance Jio has already launched services for Reliance group employees and their friends three months back.

“Our visits to Reliance Digital stores in Mumbai revealed that the stores are preparing for a possible soft launch of Jio’s 4G connections soon,” Credit Suisse said.

Many of the store staff have undergone training sessions in recent days in enrolling customers, managing documentation and explaining product features.

The stores have been equipped with infrastructure that allows for quick enrolment.

“The staff mentioned they have received stocks of Jio SIM cards, but they have not been informed when the sales is to start,” it said.

“The tariffs post the three-month period are unknown,” it said. “It needs to be seen if a customer needs to buy a Lyf handset to get the SIM, or if the SIMs will be sold standalone (the store attendants suggested standalone).”

Credit Suisse, which has held a more aggressive view of the impact of Reliance Jio on Indian telecom and rivals like Bharti Airtel and Idea Cellular, said: “Our cautious view on Telco stocks stays, with upcoming spectrum auctions and RJio launch.”

        Average speed is not that great. I am sharing first hand experience. Moreover, it is not reliable. Network breaks omly and you have to wait for the network to restore. All this when they have covered only employees.Average speed: 300 KBpsMax Speed: 1 MBps (may be better in few cities but mostly you wont get very high speed)Advantage:1. Price: I think this would be the main driving force for most you to switch.Disadvantage:1. Speed not that great (against what they promise): I have used Airtel 3G, the speed is more or less like that only. not that great.2. Not reliable: Network issues. For some om reason, their network would break and then you can only wait for it recover which may take as much as 20-30 mins.3. It's RELIANCE: It is very difficult for us (at least employees) to trust reliance after we know what they have been doing in their other business. (Selling sub-quality products in the market)PS: Just to save few bucks, I would suggest you to trust Airtel or Vodafone for sometime. Once they have complete commercial launch, then based on the quality take your call.

                            Caution. This man sold a dream of Rrliance Power to investors. Also this man was praising Amar Singh on phone for awarding him a contract that fetched him large sum without delevering any thing except bribe.

                                    The JIO 4G has a great data speed which goes upto 9Mbps. Also the network is stable compared to that of Airtel. I have used it in most parts of Maharashtra and amazed to experience high speed 4G data speacially in rural areas. Also the apps provided by Jio such as live tv,online music,video on demand etc are super awesome and at this price its a steal. Surely Jio gonna rock the telecom industry very soon.
