"We anticipate that 4G cell phone base will bounce from 5 million in FY 2015 to 180 million (18 crores) by FY 2018, prompting 4G endorsers quickening from right around zero in FY 2016 to 90 million (9 crores) by FY 2018," a report by BoFA ML research experts Sachin Salgaonkar, Karan Parmanandka and Simon Dong-je Woo said.

"We take note of that main 5 percent clients (predominantly post-paid) of the enormous 3 telcos add to 15 percent of their incomes. These clients are unrealistic to change to Jio given the solace these clients have with their current administrators and general apathy to switch unless there is an exceptionally convincing suggestion," the report said.

"The organization (Jio) is searching for 4G telephones to be evaluated between Rs. 4,000-25,000. Jio would require a 5 band telephone which deals with 900, 2100 groups alongside 800, 1800 and 2300 for consistent network," the report included.
