Jio True 5G will be a true game changer for Bhubaneswar, which has a large student population and is regarded as the IT hub of the East, as this will usher in a plethora of opportunities and enriched experiences both for the citizens as well as visitors to the city. Jio’s True 5G Data is getting launched at an apt time in Bhubaneswar, the fast-emerging sports capital of India as it gears up to host FIH Men’s Hockey World Cup in the next few days. Similarly, users in the 1,000-year-old historic city of Cuttack will now access Data on the next-gen Jio True 5G network.
Commenting on the occasion, Jio Spokesperson said, “We are thrilled to launch Jio True 5G services in Odisha with the twin cities of Bhubaneswar and Cuttack.

“We feel very fortunate with all the love that Jio has received in Odisha. Jio commands more than two-third data market share. Two in every three smartphone users in Odisha use Jio. Jio engineers are working round the clock to deliver True-5G to every person in Odisha because of the transformational power of this technology and the exponential benefits it can deliver,” added the Jio Spokesperson.
