Six months after the soft launch of Reliance Jio’s 4G LTE services, the network is now open for everyone. Last month, the company had started an invite system where Reliance employees could bring up to 10 of their family and friends to try out the next-gen high-speed 4G LTE services. Reliance Jio has now made its official website Jio.com live, where select users who register for the service can avail a LYF-branded smartphone along with the 4G SIM card.
