Reliance Industries Chairman Ambani’s took his plan to push Jio a notch up by announcing free voice, data and video for new and existing users under the Jio Happy New Year offer.
“Starting 4 December, every new Jio user will get Jio’s Data, Voice, Video and the full bouquet of Jio applications absolutely free till March 31,” he said in a special broadcast.
Continuing its free services that were introduced with the Jio Welcome Offer in September, Reliance Jio Happy New Year Offer will provide free data, voice calls, and Jio apps till March 31, 2017. The Reliance Jio Happy New Offer is applicable for both new and existing users, the company chairman said at an event on Thursday. The Reliance Jio Happy New Year Offer starts from December 4, a day after the the company’s Jio Welcome Offer ends.
“Starting December 4, 2016, every new Jio user will get the data, voice, and full bouquet of the Jio apps free till 31 March 2017,” Mukesh Ambani said about the Reliance Jio extended Welcome Offer. “This is the Jio Happy New Year Offer. All our existing 52 million users will continue to enjoy the Welcome Offer till 31 December, and then automatically be signed up for the New Year Offer. No need to buy a new SIM.”
During the Reliance Jio Happy New Year Offer announcement, Mukesh Ambani also said that users will now have a daily FUP limit of 1GB under the new year offer, which if exhausted will result in slower speeds. The reason behind the FUP change in the Reliance Jio Happy New Year Offer, Mukesh Ambani said, was that 80 percent of its Welcome Offer users consumed 1GB data per day, while 20 percent consumed disproportionately higher amounts – which ended up congesting the network. The Reliance Jio Welcome Offer, on the other hand, had daily FUP limit of 4GB.
He also added that Jio now fully supports MNP so all customers can retain their number while migrating to Jio. He added that the company has now integrated home delivery of Jio SIMs. The SIM can be activated through eKYC once delivered, Mukesh Ambani said. “This will be available in all the top cities by 31 December, 2016.”
