Whether it’s a hotel, restaurant, motel, theater or a shopping mall, people are always in search of a free hotspot. Companies set up hotspots in public places to promote their services or provide free internet for a limited time. Reliance JIO has begun its operations in India. Before launching its services, the firm had installed several routers across the country.
The free JIO hotspots provide amazing download speeds of up to 40 Mbps. So, if you use a video streaming app such as HotStar, you can connect your mobile to the hotspot and download the movies/TV show within a few minutes for watching them later.
To help you find a Reliance Jio Hotspot in metro cities such as Pune, Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Surat, Mumbai, Kolkatta, you should download and use the free JioNet app for Android.
