Reliance Industries Ltd’s telecom arm Reliance Jio Infocomm today announced the launch of unlimited free wi-fi service, Jionet, at select pandals during ongoing Ganesh Utsav.

Devotees visiting Lalbaug Cha Raja, Andheri Cha Raja and Sahyadri Cha Raja pandals during 11-day long festival will be able to access high speed wi-fi internet services through their mobile devices, the company said in a statement.

“This year, we are privileged to join the festivities by offering ‘Jionet’ high speed wi-fi Internet service…as we want visiting devotees to sample the digital ecosystem we are building consisting of high speed data networks,” Reliance Jio spokesperson said.

The users’ feedback on the overall experience and network will be used to improve the services further as Jio gets ready for its formal launch, it added.

“Once 4G LTE service commences, wi-fi and LTE networks will operate seamlessly with each other,” the statement said.

The company is expected to commercially launch its 4G services by the end of this year.

Visitors at any of the three pandals will have to scan and select Jionet, fill their details in a message that will appear on their device and later enter one-time password to start using wi-fi service.

“The system will automatically log the user out after every 30 minutes of inactivity, and the user has to log in again with the same password,” the statement said.
