Jio SIM not working on 4G Dongle with Supported Band
This issue occurs only if the network is not reaching to your area so try and check in all possible area in your home or terrace. Although Jio network is now available in many parts of India still you might face a little bit of fluctuation in connection due to the high volume of users or compact place. Some of you might be thinking that can I use jio sim in 3g dongle then answer is no, you cannot use since Jio sim supports only 4G connection & frequency bands.
Getting Slow Jio Speed in 4G LTE Dongle
Speed mostly depends on the frequency Band supported by your 4G dongle and availability of that frequency in your area. So make sure to check whether your 4G LTE dongle supports all bands supported by Reliance Jio and check in all places at your home for best available speed which comes in Band 40. Some dongle allows you to choose Band so select Band 40.
How to Choose RF Band 40 in 4G Dongle
Some dongle does not provide an option to choose Band, and they automatically select best possible Band available in your area to provide best performance and speed. But some 4G LTE Dongle has this option so choose Band 40 for the best result.
