Targeting small cities

Mukesh Ambani led Reliance Jio also intends to expand its customer base through superior high-speed 4G services. Jio’s 4G LTE network has managed to reach out to several areas across India including tier II and tier III locations. Furthermore, there has been a substantial increase in the number of start-ups who have decided to invest in these regions. The active involvement of such start-ups from cities like Surat, Jaipur, Chennai, and Ahmedabad will expand India’s reach in the global market.

Reliance Jio is expected to offer packages to such start-up firms if they relocate from tier II regions such as Nagpur, Pune, Thane, and Nashik to cities like Mumbai because of better Internet facilities. This initiative by Reliance Jio will affect the output positively. The company will also dramatically impact the market once it commercially launches its 4G services.
