Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani released the details of Reliance Jio launch at the company’s 42nd annual general meeting (AGM) in Mumbai. Jio, also known as Reliance Jio and officially as Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited, is an upcoming provider of mobile telephony, broadband services, and digital services in India. Mukesh Ambani said Reliance Jio will start offering service from September 5 and will be launched commercially on December 31. Reliance Jio will be offering data at Rs 50 per GB, which is lowest in the world.
Apart from the data rates, Mukesh Ambani also announced that the full suite of Jio apps – for streaming movies, music, and live television – will be completely free for all users until December 2017. Isn’t it great!
It is likely that Reliance Jio 4G will revolutionize the internet market in India and Reasons are simple. Reliance is Introducing VOLTE ( IMS ) first in Indian Telecom which ensures good speed and voice quality. Reliance has 2.7 lakhs KM of Fiber network in country which is major backbone for telecom operator and boon for network. This will help reducing OPEX in big way and dependency on carrying data/voice on other vendors.
In his speech, Ambani literally launched a tariff war, by unveiling cheapest data plans not just in India but in the world. With the launch of Reliance Jio, India will transform from a high price data market to the lowest priced data market.
“Current market practice is to charge for data a base rate between Rs. 4,000 and Rs. 10,000 – Jio will have a base rate which is 1/10th of this,” Ambani said. “Our data plans go even further with an effective rate of 5p/MB or Rs. 50/ GB.” Students will get 25 percent extra data on the tariffs, if they show a valid ID when signing up for Jio.” Mukesh Ambani
#Jio is also about bringing people together. It is about you, our family, friends, community and Indians together: Mukesh Ambani
