A Reliance Jio representative spoke about the hardships faced in its endeavour to bolster 4G services, “Overcoming the challenge of extremely difficult terrain and harsh weather conditions, Team Jio continues with its efforts of reaching the remotest parts of the Union Territory to ensure that people remain in touch in the areas which otherwise remain cut off from the rest of the country for months”.
