Reliance Jio became a sensation in India as it offered free data for months. It followed it up with many cheap plans so as to ensure that everyone can afford 4G network connectivity. But it is not stopping here. Their next target is to provide free Jio Wi-Fi services to about 3 crore schools and college students all across the country. They have even gone ahead and filed a proposal as well in this regard to the Human Resource Development (HRD) ministry of India. The proposal is currently being examined by the ministry and signs look pretty good that the project will be passed. So let us learn some more things about this extraordinary project which is being undertaken by the Ambani’s under their Jio enterprises.
Reliance Jio Free Wi-Fi Details
The details of the project as stated on the application received by the ministry of HRD state that the project wishes to connect close to 38,000 schools and colleges under the HRD ministry to their Wi-Fi network. With this facility, all the students of these schools will be able to access the free high-speed internet. They can be always connected to the web and can use it to open various educational tools. They can also open various online courses to study, which includes the online courses on the SWAYAM platform which comes under the National Knowledge Network.
Reliance Jio Wi-Fi Hotspots in School
This is a first in its kind proposal that the ministry has received and this will be done by establishing various hotspots. The best thing is that Reliance isn’t charging anything to the ministry for undertaking this project as well. But the ministry wants to hold on as they want to enable other suppliers to have a fair opportunity as well. They want to make it a fair as well as a silent process.
Reliance Free Wi-Fi Launch Date in Colleges
The HRD ministry had its own similar kind of plan for quite some time now, albeit it was only for approximately 38 colleges around the country. It has been stuck in the pipeline for quite some time now and is expected to be eliminated this year as well, with 38 colleges getting free Reliance Jio Wi-Fi by 31st August only. So the Reliance offer at this time is a massive boost and hopefully, it will be passed so that millions of students will be able to get free and fast Wi-Fi connectivity pretty soon.
