New Delhi: After establishing its dominance in the Indian telecom sector, Reliance Jio has set a new global record in terms of data consumption. It has become the world’s number one company in data traffic, surpassing the Chinese companies.

Total data traffic in the last quarter was recorded at 40.9 exabytes on Jio network. At the same time, China Mobile, which was till now the number one company in data traffic in the world, slipped to the number two position. Data consumption on its network remained less than 40 exabytes in the quarter. Another Chinese company China Telecom was at third place in terms of data consumption, while India’s Airtel was at fourth place, according to a press released by Reliance Jio.

Huge amount of data consumption is mainly attributed to the launch of 5G services by Reliance Jio. The data consumption saw a jump of 35.2% as compared to the previous year’s record. The main reason for this surge is Jio’s true 5G network and the expansion of Jio Air fiber.
