Jio creates world record, crosses 1.6 crore subscribers in a month

Updated: Oct 09, 2016 16:11 IST

New Delhi [India], Oct. 09 (ANI): Reliance Jio has announced that the network has created a world record by crossing 1.6 crore total subscribers during the first month of operations in September 2016.

The Jio Welcome Offer was earlier rolled out for all on September 5 and has since achieved the fastest growth than any other telecom operator or start up in the world including Facebook, WhatsApp and Skype.

It was made possible by the introduction of Aadhaar-based paper-less Jio SIM activation across 3,100 cities and towns, something that enabled customers to complete the SIM activation process in a matter of minutes, by providing his/her Aadhaar number alone.

"The process will be extended across the country and fully stabilised for satisfactory on-boarding experience in the next few weeks," RIL announced

"We are delighted and humbled by the overwhelming response across India to the Jio

Welcome Offer. Jio is built to empower every Indian with the power of data. We are delighted that people have recognised this and are utilising our services to the fullest. We are customer-obsessed and committed to improve every day to exceed expectations of our customers," Mukesh Ambani, chairman, Reliance Industries Limited said.

Users can get a Reliance Jio SIM card with the 'Welcome Offer', that allows users access to free unlimited 4G data until December 31. This data however, has a cap of 4GB of data a day - beyond which a user will get 128Kbps. Other benefits of the Jio SIM include free voice calling, and no roaming charges forever.

Jio customers will also be able to enjoy access to Jio's premium apps like JioMusic, MyJio, JioChat, JioMoney and more for free until December 31. Mukesh Ambani has claimed that Jio's data plans are the cheapest in the world at Rs 50/GB

To ensure every customer gets the best out of Jio, the company will offer a total of tariff 10 plans. The plans start at as little as Rs 19 and go all the way up to Rs 4,999.

Reliance Jio is currently offering an additional 12 months of Jio Digital Services with the purchase of all Apple iPhone models. Unlike the Airtel offer that is limited to iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, Jio's complementary services will also be extended to the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone SE as well. (ANI)
