Note that being eligible for the Welcome Offer doesn’t necessarily mean that you will get it as well. Since it is a beta launch, the company is not charging any additional money from the customers to use 5G. Reliance Jio’s 5G is only supported by devices which have the support for 5G SA.

On the occasion of this launch, Reliance Jio said, “Jio is proud to announce the launch of True 5G services in all the six states of North-East Circle from today.”
