3. Jio has the Largest fiber optic network in India

Jio has laid more than 250,000 kms of Optical Fiber Cable across India, also they have installed more than 90,000 4G LTE towers out of which a few are ‘ Eco-Friendly’ towers.

Technically speaking, the optical fiber cables laid by Jio has 288 individual fibers in it, 90 at some places. Most of the others are still using the old cables with 12 or 24 fibers in it. More fibers means, more bandwidth, which means more speed.

Most other companies do not lay such large amount of cables, instead, they depend on agreement with various other companies who own fiber networks. Apart from this, Jio also has access to the cables laid by Reliance communications.
