The company authenticates the registration by sending an OTP to the mobile number and registration is confirmed once you enter the authentication number. Reliance Jio executives had recently confirmed that the company plans to test in 900 cities across the country. The company also plans to piggyback on the network of local cable operators to get better coverage and faster data speeds.
