With this Jio has completed deployment of additional 20 MHz of spectrum across Karnataka which was acquired in the spectrum auctions conducted by the DoT in March this year.
This spectrum augmentation has further given a quantum jump on Jio’s Network experience to the entire subscriber base in Karnataka. With 60 Mhz deployed across 850Mhz, 1800 Mhz & 2300 MHz bands, network throughput has improved and has led to improvement in customer experience across Karnataka. Jio continues to be the state leader, both in terms of Deployed Sites across the state and the Network throughput it is delivering to its customers.

The enhanced connectivity & experience will certainly be of great help to medical & other frontline workers across segments who are engaged in essential work in the field
