Reliance Jio today guaranteed that it has made “a world record“ by crossing the 16 million subscriber mark in its first month of operations September.
Reliance Jio, another contestant in the 4G market, has accomplished this development speedier than some other telecom administrator or start-up on the planet, including any likes of Facebook, WhatsApp and Skype, Reliance Jio Infocomm said in a release.
“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,” said Mukesh Ambani, Chairman, Reliance Industries (RIL).
“We are delighted that people have recognized this and are utilizing our services to the fullest. We are customer-obsessed and committed to improving every day to exceed expectations of our customers.”
At RIL’s 42nd annual general meeting, Ambani had said his new telecom venture would aim to acquire 100 million customers “in the shortest possible time and create a new world record”.
This would decipher into data usage of 250 crore gigabyte for each month, he had then said. Jio has presented Aadhaar-based paperless Jio SIM activation crosswise over 3,100 urban areas and towns.This empowers the client to finish the SIM enactment handle in a matter of minutes, with just his/her Aadhaar number.
“This process will be extended across the country and fully stabilised for satisfactory on-boarding experience in the next few weeks,” the release said.
Jio, whose controversial entry into the world’s second-biggest communication market sparked off a tariff war, had on boarded 1.5 million clients on its 4G network during the test phase.
It is competing head-on with players such as Bharti Airtel and Vodafone by offering users data services free for four months from September 5, after which it will offer 10 tariff plans starting at Rs 19 a day for occasional data users, Rs 149 a month for low data users and Rs 4,999 a month for heavy data subscribers.
