When will Reliance Jio service launch officially?
There is no official word on when the new Reliance Jio service will be opened for commercial operation, but rumours are rife that the service may commence in October.
The launch of Reliance Jio preview scheme has led to a spat between rival network carriers. Bharti Airtel, Vodafone, Idea and others, who form the Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI), have filed a complaint with the government, accusing Reliance Jio of choking networks of its members, and rolling out full-fledged services to customers under the guise of trial offer.
Earlier this week, company owner Mukesh Ambani met DoT (Department of Telecommunications) officials to discuss the Reliance Jio roll-out plans and also complained against Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) for denying to increase inter-connection points and accused them of breach of license agreement and impeding Reliance Jio's smooth entrance to the market.
