Bad idea
While initially it appeared to be a game changer strategy for luring new technology maniacs but if RCOM plans to shut off CDMA network and force the users on GSM, then these cdma customers would never use Reliance GSM. The qos of cdma is far above expectations where Reliance gsm is concerned. Gujarat and Maharashtra has the highest number of Reliance CDMA customers and forcing them into GSM will be deadly for the company. In spite of the problems faced during normal operations like sim change, evdo plan activation etc, customers clung on to CDMA for all these years. The company has the right to pull down CDMA services from very low customer states but it will be injustice if done to revenue yeilding states. The actual luxury of using CDMA network is the US imported smartphone which gives that high-end feeling. Customers paid even more than market price per handset just to be on Reliance CDMA. Jio 4G offers LTE as data stream currently with a fall-back signal on 2G GSM. The call handshake of Reliance GSM is not worth the closedown of cdma. 4G LTE cannot be deployed highway to highway, small villages, towns so 4G penetration is just a bit more than it's campaigns. Apart for the larger cities, the whole backbone is based on edge-2g. RCOM should value it's old legendary customer base of CDMA and make an upgrade like one sim for LTE/evdo/1xcdma.

RJio launch
The entry of RJio into the market is clearly going to have a big impact but when's it going to happen? The operator seems to be way behind it's original schedule now, which makes you wonder about the difficulties they may be having. Press reports from India are suggesting a proper commercial launch won't happen until the second half of the year -- I think the original target was December.
