Mumbai: Reliance Jio, under the leadership of Chairman and Managing Director Mukesh Ambani, has surpassed China Mobile to become the world's leading mobile operator in terms of data traffic.

Jio's quarterly results revealed a monumental achievement, with total traffic on its network reaching 40.9 exabytes, marking a 35.2 percent year-on-year increase. With a subscriber base of 481.8 million, Jio's dominance in the telecommunications sector is unparalleled in the subcontinent.

Ambani expressed his satisfaction with Jio's success, highlighting its significant contribution to the Indian economy. He announced that Reliance has become the first Indian company to surpass the Rs 100,000 crore threshold in pre-tax profits, showcasing the company's robust financial performance.

Jio also leads the 5G transformation in India with over 108 million 'true 5G' customers. Introduced in the country in 2022, 5G wireless technology is meant to deliver higher multi-Gbps peak data speeds, ultra low latency, more reliability, massive network capacity, increased availability, and a more uniform user experience to more users.

"From migrating 2G users to smartphones to spearheading AI-driven solutions, Jio continues to fortify India's digital infrastructure", a company spokesperson said.

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, Jio has played a pivotal role in meeting the surging demand for digital connectivity. Annual data traffic has surged 2.4 times, and monthly per capita data usage has skyrocketed to 28.7 GB, underscoring the growing reliance on digital services.

Jio's ascendancy signifies a transformative shift in the telecommunications landscape, with 5G supplanting 2G and an exponential rise in Smartphone and internet users.
