Reliance has already began testing their services with a limited (~10,000) set of users located in Mumbai, Jamnagar & Delhi and it's expected that once the tests are successful, Reliance will launch their 4G networks in Reliance 4G To Roll Out In Assam! first.

    Besides Reliance Jio, Airtel's one of the major players in Indian 4G scene. Airtel's already got a big lead over its rivals by becoming the first telecom operator to offer 4G services in India.
