    I am positive that this usb modem would not support a 4G sim or LTE if you want to call it that. If you want to buy a modem for 4G then look for one on Amazon or Flipkart as they have a few listed on there. Buying from the service provider would mean that the modem would be locked on to their network and if you want to use another company's sim card at a later date then you would have to get the modem unlocked which would cost you money.

    Thanks. My Voda SIM is an unlocked SIM that currently has an IDEA SIM for 3G Data. Voda data has become crap in our area. I had asked because Reliance Jio is launching 4G in our area of Lucknow in the 800 MHz band and wondered if my dongle supports that level of frequency then it would support 4G of Jio. Anyhow, I would in future only buy an unlocked wi-fi SIM that supports all - 4G, 3G, 2G. I am also awaiting launch of Jio's budget dual SIM (including 4G) smartphones to replaced my aged Sony Ericcson k700i single SIM feature phone. It will also be a good time to buy a non-Indian branded (which hang quite often and have battery problems) android smartphone.

    Yes I heard something about Reliance on news two days ago but that was wifi not 4G. It would be great if Reliance Jio 4G is launching soon I am waiting for them to launch at Delhi.

    Would consistency and speed of wifi be like wireline broadband? Two-three days ago Jio launched free wifi along a km route of Hazratganj market on invitation of the CM. But, connection used to get cut every 20 minutes and one had to re-login with a password provided. It was basically for mobile phones. I am currently interested in wifi for my desktop computer running Windows 7 SP1 doing audio transcription work from home. Unlike BSNL's ADSL copper wireline connections, Jio has laid optic fibre cables in Lucknow and would be using RCOM (Anil Amabani) 800MHz towers which provides better penetration compared to 2300MHz which Mukesh Ambani won in 14 circles. Such high frequency would require "routers and repeaters" placed on the terrace like a disk antenna
