DRAWBACK OF EXISTING
SYSTEM.
Deployment of 4G network in India is certainly not going to be easy as
the telecom operators face the challenge to launch a new network along
with improving the existing 2G and 3G networks in the country.
Since Airtel will be the first to launch 4G services in India whereas
reliance jio plans to enter the market after a month,Airtel will already
acquire a good customer base.
*since Reliance Jio is in a pre-launch phase it is very early to specify the
drawbacks.*

Opportunity for development


Struggled to deliver quality.
Airtel 4g is the only is the only major competition that Reliance Jio faces.
4G adoption is likely to get another boost from the low-cost/budget

smartphones supporting the network .


Operators need to brace up to deliver hassle-free services to customers.
Being the second largest mobile market in the world , Reliance Jio needs

to keep this in mind that they need to cater to a mass audience not only
with a good network but also LTE enabled handset options and various
apps.
Reliance Jio can likely have a triple approach of Voice(calls), TV and

Boadband Data focusing on full wallet share of subscribers.

LIMITATIONS
1) Tower identification :
Difficult to contact the concerned person of the society
(chairman/secretary).
Time constraint.
Identity proof required (people had trust issues).
Due to various news the customer were under a perception
that a tower emits harmful radiations that causes health
issues.so the customer was already in a negative mind-set

2) Small cell concept :


Time constraint with relation to setting up a meeting with the
owner of the concerned place.
Important to approach the owner with the technician to gain
more brightness of how profitable setting up the small cell will
be to him.
3) Retailers:
Very crucial to make the retailer feel that he is important ,so
constant communication should be done on daily basis with the
help of the distributor.

RECOMMENDATIONS
1) Tower identification:
Before approaching the society members while convincing them it would
be recommended to explain the members or the head of the society with
interactive techniques like videos and facts stating that the current
towers do not emit harmful radiations which is monitored by TRAI.
2) Small cell concept:
Explain in detail about how profitable installing a small cell in their vicinity
will be

3) Retailers:
Have a good relationship with the distributors.
Increase their profit margin by a bit.

FINDINGS
One of the major reason quite a lot retailers do not sell reliance services
its because they get less margin when compares to other network
providers.

Reliance needs to put a lot of effort into improving the connectivity issue
that most of the customers face.

CONCLUSION
Customers do not prefer reliance network therefore it will be a hard task to
get a good customer base for the 4G network , so it is very crucial to
improve the image of the 2g and 3g services available.
