Reliance Jio, the 4G entrant said it has begun trials for enterprise solutions, fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) and the Internet of Things (IoT) services in the country.
“The company continues to make progress for delivering Enterprise solutions, FTTH and IoT with beta trials initiated in a few locations. These services are being offered using the same integrated network and platforms,” the telco said in a statement.
The telco said that these new services will lead to further data consumption on the network. Its total wireless data traffic during the quarter stood at 506 crore GB.
The telco recently rolled out India’s first narrowband Internet of Things (IoT) network, which is currently live in Mumbai, India. It partnered with Samsung for the launch of the NB-IoT network. Jio had then said that the IoT service will reach every corner of India, and the IoT network will support a variety of consumer and enterprise use cases.
ET first reported in January that Jio was gearing up to harness Internet of Things (IoT), focusing first on enterprises and industries while initiating talks with car manufacturers and consumer durable companies as well, among others, for the consumer segment.
Jio said that the growth in subscriber base is getting further accelerated with the increasing availability of JioPhones.
Jio has continued its strong subscriber growth trend with net addition during the quarter of 26.5 million, as against 21.5 million in the previous quarter. The telco’s gross adds stood at 27.9 million and churn of only 1.4 million implying the lowest industry churn rate at 0.25% per month.
