New Delhi, Sep 6: After a year of ups and downs Reliance Jio has managed to gather a 100 million-plus customer base.
Mukesh Ambani-owned telecom company, Reliance Jio has given a torrid time to its competitors and turned out to be one of the biggest network giant in a span of just one year.
Reliance Jio started its own 4G network in December 2015 and tried making some smartphones with the LYF brand.
The company announced its ‘Jio Welcome Offer’ at the AGM event – free voice calls, zero roaming charges, and cheaper tariff for customers who signed up for Jio. The offer was made valid till 31 December 2016, which was later extended to 31 March 2017 (which Jio called the ‘Happy New Year Offer’).
Jio acquired over 50 million customers in just three months, eating its competitor’s market share like Airtel, Vodafone, and Idea.
On 21 February, Jio Prime was introduced for existing Jio customers which numbered more than 100 million then where monthly tariffs started at as low as Rs 99 per month for 28GB data and unlimited voice calls.
The other operators faced the major tragedy and has to drop their voice and data tariffs.
