Mumbai: Reliance Jio Prime Subscription Plan is the only important thing that has come out of Reliance Industries’ boss Mukesh Ambani’s much talked about and anticipated press conference. He announced the death of free data for the ballooning Reliance Jio subscribers’ base.
Ambani said that his newest child has expanded to 100 million subscribers and went on to claim that he was adding 7 subscribers every second ever since the nascent telecom company was launched.
No one is surprised over the fast number pace of company’s subscriber base expansion. Give free data to anyone and you will certainly get standing half of a billion plus population standing in long queue outside your door.
The company’s boss who has invested billions and billions of dollars into the telecom business assured the people that the economic plans will not be discontinued completely. He announced the launch of the new Jio Prime subscription plan. The new plan continues the unlimited free services that Reliance Jio has offered since launch at a nominal price. While it remains to be seen how many users actually opt for the Jio Prime subscription plan, it is clear that leading telecom operators cannot breathe easy for another year.
The company’s latest Jio Prime subscription plan is expected to entice many people to stick with the company. It actually promises to extends the unlimited services offered by Reliance Jio under the Happy New Year Offer by another year.
The company has said that the new plan will not be extended any more. Reliance boss said that Jio Prime will be actually limited to the 100 million existing Reliance Jio users as well as those join the network before March 31, 2017. So, even if you are not a Reliance Jio user right now, you can still get unlimited mobile data at Rs. 10 per day for another year. Jio Prime subscription has been priced at Rs. 99 per year by Reliance Jio. However, to get the free mobile data and other benefits, you will need to pay another Rs. 303 per month for the next 12 months to continue getting the data benefits. Many of the current users are not expected to go for the Prime plan as Rs 400 will look like far too high for them.
