The roll-out of 4G networks has been at the most phenomenal pace in the world. It has all happened at a pace no believed before Jio actually made it happen. Jio not only rolled out its own 4G services but also compelled other telecommunication operators to follow the suit.

Mukesh Ambani, the owner of Reliance Jio networks has recently revealed that the Jio is a brainchild of her daughter Isha Ambani. He said Isha Ambani was the first to come up with the plan in the year 2011.
