The new offer will be called “Jio happy new year offer.”, the new offer will come with the same benefits and services as before with the only change of daily data limit. Now jio customers can consume 1GB data per day in 4G speed and 2G speeds after that.
The move has been made in hopes to double their current subscription rates and achieve their target to reach 100 million customers. Currently the only 52 million people are subscribed to jio’s 4g service.
“I want to announce today… that starting 4th of December, 2016, every new Jio user will get… Jio’s data, voice, video and the full bouquet of Jio applications and content, absolutely free, till 31. March 2017. We are calling this the “JIO HAPPY NEW YEAR OFFER,” said Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani.
“In the first three months since its birth, Jio has grown faster than Facebook, WhatsApp or Skype. In 83 days, it has crossed 50 million customers on its 4G LTE ALL-IP wireless broadband network!”, he said, adding that on an average, a Jio customer is using 25 times more data than the average Indian broadband user.
Reliance jio is the fastest growing company with game changing plans hoping to dominate the current Indian telecom market.
Signalling that there will be restrictions on data usage, Mr. Ambani said, “80% of Jio users use less than 1 GB of data a day while the other 20% of users consume disproportionately higher amounts of data, leading to the congestion.
