Punjab rides the digital wave astride Jio, the fastest network

Jio, GRR’s exclusive digital Life Partner for the Amritsar Half Marathon, that is there in the telecom arena for the long haul has sprinted ahead of other operators when it comes to providing speedy 4G connectivity besides data affordability. It has also the largest telecom network in Punjab.

Jio with its stupendous declaration of making voice free for ever at the very onset has given the gregarious Punjabis the freedom to really get talking. With HD voice and HD video calling at their disposal now, Punjabis have warmed up to Jio.

The newest telecom operator, Jio, that has topped TRAI’s speed test consecutively for the last nine months has also gained ground when it comes to revenue market share (RMS) having vaulted to the third position in Punjab in the quarter ending September 2017-18 by capturing 17% of the total RMS within six months of commencing paid services in April 2017. Jio, with Gross Revenue (GR) of Rs. 293.74 crore has dislodged Vodafone (with a GR of Rs. 235.26 crore) from its third spot.

One of the key factors contributing to Jio’s rapid growth in Punjab is its robust state of the art all IP LTE network that is providing seamless voice and data services to its subscribers in every nook and corner across all 22 districts of the state. With over 7300 active towers in place in Punjab, Jio’s network is already the largest in the state. It is larger than any other 2G, 3G or 4G network in the state. It is in the process of further strengthening its network as per customer needs. Also Jio has a vast in the state with 49 Jio Centres in Punjab in the urban areas and 171 Jio Points in the rural area besides a vast chain of retailers and channel partners .

Jio is the only operator that is providing true 4G connectivity in Punjab through its Voice over LTE (VoLTE) services. In VoLTE, voice is high definition as the data network is used to transmit voice in the same way as data is transmitted.

Jio that whisked India from the 155th position to the first position in broadband mobile data consumption is also leading the way when it comes to data consumption in Punjab with Jio customers lapping up the highest 2000 plus terabytes of data in the state every day.

What’s more Jio is continuing its relentless march to domination. According to latest TRAI figures Jio has continued to climb up in terms of market share adding 6.1 million customers in Nov 2017, taking its market share to 13.08 % nationally. For Punjab too, the TRAI data reveals that newcomer Jio has the third largest wireless subscriber base in Punjab as of Nov 30, 2017.

Jio, the trendsetter that truly brought the dawn of data democratization and tariff simplification understanding the need of consumers for more data now offers a data plan with the industry’s lowest Rs 4 per GB of data in an industry where data tariffs were as high as Rs 4000 to Rs 10,000.

Jio has also successfully created an eco-system comprising an all IP network, affordable 4G devices, premium applications and content, bringing digital freedom to all.

The Gobindgarh Fort, the very symbol of Punjab, the iconic protector of Amritsar is situated right in the centre of the Holy City along the Grand Trunk road spanning across 43 acres of land.

This magnificent heritage site has a history of its own, spread across a period of over 257 years, right from the times of the Bhangi Misl-Maharaja Ranjit Singh-The East India Company-the Indian Army.

This Qila has finally opened its gates for the very first to welcome not only the people of Punjab but also the devotees and tourists that come here to pay their respects to Shri Harminder Sahib.

At one time the world famous Kohinoor diamond was housed within the Qila. The fort is now being restored in a phased manner to not just ​revive the iconic monument but also to become a world-class cultural hub.

Within the fort are amazing buildings, built across different spans​ of time, some during the Maharaja’s reign with Sikh influence, such as the Toshakhana, KhasMahal, some with French and Italian influence like the ​Bastions, the ​Moats​, and many built during the East India Company's time like the Darbar Hall.

​The Qila is the first in history to use cutting-edge technology to entice, enlighten, educate, enthral and inspire. people with stories of the rich heritage of Punjab. ​A 7D show based on the life of Maharaja Ranjit Singh transports you back to the 19th century in an immersive way and the world-class projection mapping show Whispering walls draws spontaneous applause from the audiences.

Tourism Partner

The Tourism tagline of Punjab goes, ‘India Begins Here’, and this is true in more ways than one. Not only has Punjab been in the forefront of defending India’s borders and been the entry point to India for people coming from different parts of the world via the land route over the centuries, but also the cradle of one of the most ancient civilizations of the world. The remains of these Indus valley civilizations can still be seen at Sanghol and Ropar in Punjab. As you are aware, the Iconic Golden Temple in Amritsar has recently been acknowledged as the ‘Most Visited Destination in the World’ as per the London based World Book of Records (WBR). What is even more amazing is that this most visited destination has also been given the award as the ‘Cleanest Religious place in India’ by the Vice-President of India. The efforts leading to these acknowledgements at the National and International level have also been recognised, when Punjab Tourism got the award for ‘Best Destination Promotion' for Amritsar on 26.11.2017 at Pune during the India Travel Trade Mart (IITM). And it is not just the Golden Temple. Today in Amritsar alone, we have other major tourist attractions like Jallianwala Bagh, beating of the Retreat Ceremony at Wagha Border, the newly opened Partition Museum, the legendary Gobindgarh Fort with its 3D shows, 7D experiences and a light & sound show thrown in. And that is not all, the sprawling ‘SADDA PIND’ gives an authentic flavour and experience of traditional Punjab village life for the visitors in general and the Indian diasporas (NRIs) who want their children and grandchildren to get a taste of their roots in Punjab. The vibrancy of Sadda Pind is infectious. Then there are the Archeological Survey of India (ASI) protected Ram Bagh gardens with Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s Summar palace, the Ranjit Singh Panorama and the list goes on and on. These tourist attractions are in no way meant to take away anything from the culinary roller-coaster that any visitor to Amritsar gets as a bonus. The mouthwatering flavours of the super specialist chefs and cooks of Amritsar leave a tingling flavour in the mouth and maybe, an added few centimetres to the girth of the visiting tourist---- so irresistible are the delicacies of Amritsar. All this while, I was just talking of Amritsar, which is just the beginning. We have the whole religious circuit comprising of Tarn-Taran, Baba Bakala, Sultanpur Lodhi, Anandpur Sahib, Kiratpur Sahib, Chamkaur Sahib, Fatehgarh Sahib, Damdama Sahib, Muktsar Sahib etc.
