Like an ocean current, India’s largest telecom operator Reliance Jio is always in motion. Even when all seems still on the surface, it surges forward endlessly. All those caught in its path are carried kicking and screaming into deeper, unchartered waters, or drowned and relegated to the company of India’s other telco shipwrecks.
In just five short years, Jio surged from birth to utter dominance. Today, it boasts around 392 million users—around 70 million more than its nearest competitors, Bharti Airtel and Vodafone-Idea. The young telco also claims to have a complete 5G solution in the works.
