The standalone 5G technology from Jio is called “True 5G.”
The Jio customers testing out the service will get limitless 5G broadband at speeds of up to 1 Gbps or more. The Beta trial service for more cities will be announced in stages as cities get prepared.
Users will be able to take advantage of this beta trial until the network coverage of a city is substantially complete to deliver the most satisfactory coverage and user experience to every customer.

Invited ‘Jio Welcome Offer’ users won’t need to switch their current Jio SIM or 5G device to access the Jio True 5G service; it will be upgraded automatically. To give customers the widest selection of 5G devices possible, Jio is also collaborating with all handset manufacturers to ensure that their 5G handsets are compatible with Jio True 5G services.
In addition, Airtel has begun offering 5G services across the nation. It has started its pilot projects in eight cities: Delhi, Varanasi, Nagpur, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Chennai, and Siliguri.
