Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) chairman Mukesh Ambani spoke at RIL's 42nd Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Thursday. According to experts, one of the major focuses of the AGM would be regarding Reliance Jio — the recently launched mobile telephony, broadband services, and digital services provider. Here are the top announcements from the AGM: 1) Jio is dedicated to the Digital India vision of the prime minister, to my fellow 1.2 billion Indians and India. 2) India is 155th in the world for mobile broadband access, Jio will take the country to the top 10. 3) Jio has created an all-IP network. There is only language spoken on the Jio network. We will have a single digital mother tongue. The all-IP design also makes Jio's network the most expansive and future-proof network in the country. Jio is a data strong network built for the Internet from the ground up. By March 2017, we will cover 90 per cent of India's population. It is the first mobile network that is only 4G LTE. 4) All voice calls for Jio customers will be absolutely free. Roaming charges will also be zero across India. 5) The onboarding process will now be 100 per cent digital, using Adhaar-based EKYC, starting today from Mumbai and Delhi. 6) Jio apps bouquet will be available complimentary up to December 31 2017. 7) Effective rate of data would be five paise per MB, or Rs 50 per GB. 8) All complex telecom charges, like black-out days, eliminated. 9) Jio's services will be free of cost to all users from September 5 to December 31, 2016. 10) Jio's commercial launch will be on December 31. 11) Special offers for students with 25 per cent more data.

With a soft launch expected later this month in at least a few cities for Jio services, here are their preview websites that are getting ready for the launch. jioconnect.com appears to be the portal for Jio MiFi, WiFi & FTTH services. The preview website is available at: http://preview.jioconnect.com:7777/ FAQ page has lots of information: http://preview.jioconnect.com:7777/cs/jio/support.html jioworld.com seems to be the website for the Jio World app for connecting to Jio WiFi hotspots from your phone. Apps are not seen in Play Store or iTunes store yet. The preview website is accessible here: http://22.214.171.124:8080/cgi-bin/gl_productpage.py FAQ page for the Jio World app is accessible at: http://www.jioworld.com/wordpress/frequently-asked-questions/ jio.com is the primary website for Reliance Jio, but I couldn't find any preview website for it yet. wifi.jio.com was listed in the FAQs as intranet login URL for Jio WiFi services. I think they will initially (later this month?) start MiFi service, WiFi hostspots and FTTH along with the digital media services in a few cities. When I called up the newly opened Reliance Digital Xpress Mini store in Trivandrum, they said that it is unlikely to start this month here. 4G/VoLTE services on your handset like a conventional mobile service provider might be starting later next year only, probably since the network isn't ready yet in all circles and everywhere. A full fledged network is needed for that. Interestingly, there is a "Volte Basic Offer" listed in the products page though with not much details. There is also a "K Touch" phone picture in the home page which is a Chineese brand: http://www.k-touch.cn/en/lte Also interesting to see this in the FAQ: "If you move out of 4G coverage area, you will be automatically latched on to 2G/3G network" - they don't have a 2G/3G network to fallback though? The listed MiFi devices use Band 40 (2300 Mhz), could they be looking to use Band 3 (1800 Mhz) for handsets later? I'm not sure if the Rs.1 and Rs.4 for FTTH (installation charge?) are placeholders to be updated earlier or could they be actual pricing considering that it's from Mukesh Ambani?
