Reliance Jio faces over 8-hr outage in Mumbai

The country’s largest telco Reliance Jio faced an over eight-hour long outage in the financial capital on Saturday, wherein its subscribers were unable to make or receive calls.

Users of the Mukesh Ambani-led telco started facing issues at around noon and the company ended a phased restoration of connections only late in the evening after 8 PM. The telco has 1.30 crore subscribers in the Mumbai circle, as of November 2021.

“Although our teams were able to resolve this network issue in a matter of hours, we understand that it wasn’t a pleasant experience for you, and we truly apologise for that,” the message said.

Earlier, a company source had said that it is requesting its subscribers to restart their phones as the services were getting restored in a phased manner.

Users complained of getting a message saying they are not registered on the network while attempting a call while those calling Jio subscribers could not get through.

A few subscribers took to social media to enquire or vent, and soon memes also started doing the rounds.
