Jio 5G launched in India: How to Activate Jio 5G Service on your Phone

Jio 5G services have started rolling out in India. The telco has introduced the services in a few regions for now.

This will be followed by a wider rollout in the upcoming months, but it will not be until December 2023

Be that as it may, the Jio 5G will be based on a standalone network and is rated to deliver speeds up to 1Gbps.

While you don't need a new Jio SIM to use 5G, you will be required to manually enable 5G on your compatible smartphones.

With that being said, in this guide, we'll provide you with all you need to activate Jio 5G on your smartphone.

Once Jio rolls out its 5G services in your area, 5G can be activated on an Android phone using the following procedure.

See the below screenshot to active 5g service.

– Open ‘Settings' app on your smartphone – Next, find and select ‘Mobile network' or a similar setting – Select the Jio SIM you want to enable 5G on – From here, select the ‘Preferred network type' option

– Now select the option that says 5G – After following these steps, you should be getting a 5G symbol on the status bar which  indicates that 5G services have been activated on your smartphone
