    Jio 4G speed is super amazing. This is the speed I got using Jio.
    [​IMG]

    4 to 7MB/s or as average speed of 5MB/s

    To get Jio SIM
    Contact Reliance Jio employee, anyone selling LYF smartphone at you local place or register on jio.com
    Then you have to buy any LYF smartphone. But I'll say buy those costs Rs6500, Rs6899 as these phones are not that great.
    You will get Unlimited 4G data, call, message, Live TV for 3 months.

    For rural areas this is great thing as I was paying around Rs750 to Rs900 for BSNL broadband & was getting 60KB/s download speed. BSNL broadband goes down many times a month. And one can't do anything about it much.

    Jio SIM with this offer of Unlimited 4G for 3 months can be used on LYF phone only. Not working on other phones.
    SIM will work with other phones after 3 months offer is passed.

    Reliance Jio downtime within one month I used is 5 to 10 mins for once. I haven't seen any other downtime yet.
    With BSNL at least there would have been many long down times.

    Jio haven't released any tariffs yet as they are now in testing phase. I think they will release soon in 2 or 3 months or maximum December of this year.

    Anyone using Jio can share their thoughts. And who want to buy ask some questions too.
    I'm a Jio + LYF user only. So I'll share whatever I get to know.

    No with unlimited offer it won't work on other brand phones.
    After unlimited offer time finishes that SIM will work on any other brand phone.

    Still waiting for a non-LYF Jio SIM to be launched :(

    Edit : btw a bit offtopic though, thought of adding some info here

    Saw Reliance Jio Wi-Fi service across Mall Road, Mussoorie (tourist spot) during my vacation.

    Speeds were respectable but unstable although I guess they were kicking me for downloading too much :p (used about 1.5GB). I was getting around 3-4MB/sec in ADM(Android)

    According to some news, some employees said Jio may release on this September. But they have no confirmation officially. So one can get Jio SIM which can be used with other phones when it's released.
    But for now to enjoy Jio 4G one need to buy LYF phone.

    I'm wifi tethering to my other smartphone & laptop.

    Unlimited plans is a distant dream.. I kinda wish there was a plan similar to 30 gb rs 500 plan like reliance 3g. Obviously that's way too naive to assume these money hungry companies would provide such an economical plan.. Did u know it takes significantly less money to establish and maintain 4g as compared to 3g.. :/

    UNLIMITED on wireless is a big joke. No one will have proper experience then.. If anyone is offering UNLIMITED ACCESS on wireless then probably you're getting 512kb or 1mbps.

    Postpaid plans are likely to be around (Based on Phoneradar)
    If your monthly pack is ~ 500-600. you shall get around 8GB 4G + Unlimited calls
    If your monthly pack is around ~1000-1100 you shall get around 20GB 4G + Unlimited calls

    Prepaid plans are likely to be:

    1GB @ Rs 99 for 15days, 3GB @ Rs 249 for 30days..

    Reliance did offer 30 GB 3G + UL 2G afterwards For Rs 499 in my circle with good enough speeds (512 KB/s which is around 4 mbps, mostly)
    If there is an equivalent plan like that for 4G, im in

    One of my friend who works in Reliance has told me that Jio is planning to offer 75Gb in Rs 200 and that too along with 4500 mins. Now, that is complete insane. I don't believe it. He said that Jio is planning to "revolutionize" data tariff as Rel CDMA earlier did in call rates.

    Also, those 3 month unlimited plans are capped at 75gb, as per him.

    Reliance is testing the Jio and has given the two 4G SIM to all its employees.
    Once they get a good response from the Employees they will release it at year end may be

    Jio tested their network through WiFi and 4G at our college a few months back. Damn, it was a solid network. Great routing and amazing throughput. Let's hope the pricing is good everywhere when it launches.
