After Airtel stormed the media and our TV sets with its news of the “Open Network” campaign, it is now time for Reliance Jio to live the same. Reliance backed Jio made its pan India mega launch on 1st of September 2016, and it is now planning to launch a similar with facilities quite similar to the ones provided by Airtel, in a move to woo its customers. For the customers who are concerned about the Jio 4G coverage in their area, this Network Tracker will prove to be a boon. Customers can quickly check or monitor Jio’s network strength and coverage, which will be done by providing a ZIP code or a local address.
Currently, the major issue with both the telecom industry and the customers is the poor data/network connectivity. It has been almost 6 years that 3G was officially launched in the country, but the data connectivity is still terribly slow. Thus it is unsure if Jio’s connectivity, coverage and signal strength would be any good.
However, it should be noted that the feature is still under construction and is in beta stage and Jio has not updated this information in its website yet. In the same line as Airtel’s Open Network, Jio’s Network Tracker will also allow users to check towers and Wi-Fi availability, through which users can report issues with voice and data quality. The Network Tracker will work on both the mobile and the desktop version of the Jio websites. The Jio tracking device displays the information asked for with a verified tick mark to signify authenticity and accuracy. With location tracking for towers and signals, many users would choose the service for its presence in their area.
