Reliance Jio is likely to launch its 5G services in select cities on Diwali, as per its announcement in August. The telecom provider said that its 5G network can offer 1Gbps download speed – a claim backed by the fact that Jio acquired 700MHz to become the only carrier that can offer SA (standalone) 5G in India . Jio is already testing services in four cities, so the company’s 5G will have a wider rollout in those cities before expanding to other cities. But even if you are in one of these cities, the Services will not be automatically available to you.
This is because Jio will be offering 5G to the users on an invitation only basis. This means that you will need an invitation from Reliance Jio to be able to use its 5G services. The invites will be offered to only a few users in select cities, so where the odds are low, there is a way to get the invite and try your luck, the company said. However, before you request an invite, make sure you have a 5G phone and run the software that enables Jio’s 5G services. Realme, OnePlus, iQOO, Vivo, Samsung and Xiaomi are among the few brands that already support Jio.
Now that you’ve made sure that your phone has 5G connectivity along with the required software, here’s how to request an invite.
How to Request an Invitation
On your smartphone, go to the Google Play Store and search for the MyJio app. install it. The app is also available on Apple’s App Store, but since the iPhone will take some time to get support for India’s 5G network, I’ve excluded the relevant process.
After logging in to the MyJio app using your Jio number, you will be greeted by the home screen. Now, if your number belongs to the circle (Delhi, Mumbai, Varanasi and Kolkata) that is eligible for 5G rollout, you will see a card on the top carousel. The card reads “Jio Welcome Offer”, which mentions the four cities that will get the services first. To nominate yourself for the invitation program, you need to tap on this card. After tapping on the card, you will see the following message:
“Thank you. Your journey towards Jio True5G begins now.” Jio also mentioned that it is investigating whether Jio True5G will be available “in your use-zones most of the time” and if your handset is network-compatible. “If successful, your invite for the Jio Welcome Offer is coming soon.”
