Reliance Jio is one of the largest telecom providers in India with a very large market share. Recently Reliance Jio or just ‘Jio’ as it is more popularly called has started rolling out 5G services to its users across multiple cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Bangalore, Hyderabad, etc. Moreover, the company is also in the process of setting up infrastructure to implement Jio in smaller towns and cities. As of right now, the Jio 5G service can only be accessed if you have been specifically invited for it, as the service is currently in the ‘Beta’ stage, meaning testing is going on and bugs/technical issues are being resolved before public release. 

However, Reliance Jio is reportedly offering free 5G services to some of its users under their new ‘Jio Welcome Offer’. However, there are certain conditions that must be met in order for the selected users to benefit from this offer. Firstly, the selected users must have a smartphone that supports Jio 5G network. Second, the selected users must live in an area where Jio 5G coverage is being actively provided, such as Mumbai, Delhi, etc. Third and the most important criterion, prepaid or postpaid users must have an active Jio plan of ₹239 or higher in order to be eligible for this offer. Those with a Jio plan worth less than ₹239 will not be provided with the benefits of this offer. 

How To Activate Jio 5G On Your Smartphone?

As of now, the Jio Welcome Offer is available in a few cities; Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Delhi-NCR, and five other cities across India. Under this offer, Jio is offering unlimited 5G data with speeds up to 1 Gbps to eligible and selected users. Even if you haven’t been selected for the ‘Jio Welcome Offer’ you can still access Jio 5G as long as you meet all the criteria and live in a city that already has the Jio 5G service running. You do not even have to change your SIM cards, as Jio has confirmed that the 4G SIM cards will also be compatible with the Jio 5G network.  Here are the steps that you can follow in order to activate Jio 5G on your device if you have not done so already:  

Step 1: Go to the ‘Settings’ section of your smartphone. 

Step 2: Then navigate to the mobile network settings option on your device. 

Step 3: If your phone has two sims, select the Jio sim in mobile network settings. 

Step 4: Under the ‘Preferred Network Type’ select the 5G option. 

Once you’ve completed this process successfully, the 5G service should become active on your device, although you might not get free data unless you’ve been chosen under the ‘Jio Welcome Offer’. It’s also important to remember that you should keep your phone’s software fully updated so that your device has the latest 5G software updates in order to run Jio 5G.
