Reliance Jio deals a body blow to Airtel, Vodafone, Idea Cellular

Customers can enrol by paying one-time fee of Rs 99 and continue to get the existing benefits till March 2019.

In the same meeting, Ambani said that Jio will be covering 99 percent of India by the end of this year and announced that the company won't be expanding the New Year Offer beyond March 31. This is a worthy deal considering 1GB of 4G data on other networks come close to Rs 99 just for a month, while Jio is giving its bundle of services free for a complete year.

Reliance Jio's best prepaid plan is the Rs 299 one which offers 21 days validity, 2GB 4G LTE data, 4GB WiFi data, 100 free SMS per day and free subscription to Jio apps. He further announced that once Jio starts charging customers in April, all domestic voice calls to any network will always remain free. And for JioMoney users, it brings little more -the users now can book an Uber taxi directly from the mobile wallet app and can pay for it using the app.

"Last month Jio users have consumed 100 crore gigabytes of data".

Mukesh Ambani has finally chose to terminate the free services Jio has been offering for the past six months. During the day, it lost 4.27 per cent to Rs 359.60.

Newspaper review: Palestinian killed by Israeli soldiers laid to rest
Last April, Lee made an official week-long trip to the Middle East that included visits to Jordan, Israel and the Palestinian Territories.

Reliance Jio is pushing for its growth in users through higher data adoption by its plans.

The company will provide tariff plans which will contest with other telecom services. While that is a LOT of money if you compare to ARPU of Indian mobile users, the value that Jio is giving in exchange is non trivial. This automatically shuts out users of other telecom networks who have not allowed the Jio bug to bite them yet.

With its new prime subscription offer, Reliance Jio is clearly targeting the average data user.

If you think the Prime membership is not for you, you will be automatically be signed up for either Jio's prepaid or postpaid plans. M Ambani made an official announcement that Reliance Jio crossed more than 10 crore customers all over India, and more than 7 new customers are joining the network every second.

Reliance Jio announced its Jio Prime membership programme on Tuesday. For Jio, it's equally important to maintain decent data speeds and calling experience to woo customers and retain existing subscribers beyond offering subsidised tariffs.
