"Today on the eve of the 83rd birthday of Dhirubhai, it is my proud privilege to invite all our Reliance families and friends to be the first to experience Jio’s services. While you enjoy Jio Digital Life, I am also counting on you, as part of my family, to be part of co-creating the best experience for all our customers," Reliance Industries Limited Chairman and Managing Director Mukesh Ambani said at the event.

The company is offering Jio mobile service for free to its over 1 lakh employees as of now.

The company in a presentation at the event claimed that Jio 4G will deliver 10 times higher download speed and 4 times better upload speed compared to others.

Airtel, Idea Cellular, Vodafone and Aircel have already launched commercial 4G service in market.

Brand Ambassador of Jio, Shah Rukh Khan said "Our service providers for everything say its 4G, but it is neither 4G nor 3G. If God is kind, you can get 2G on it. On Jio you will always find 4G." He said there are 150 handsets available in the country which support 4G of Jio and mobile phones with 3G and 2G network support only can access Jio wifi.

The company is also offering 25 per cent discount on its 'LYF' brand 4G smartphones to its employees. Jio is expected to roll out 4G service commercially around March-April next year.
