It could be described as a watershed in the telecom sector. RIL chairperson Mukesh Ambani dedicated the Reliance Jio 4G services to the nation and also called it a step in fulfilling the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s dream of making India Digital. The 4g VoLTE service has become very popular even in its beta phase and millions have bought the Reliance Jio SIM for the free data it will offer for three months. Outlining the goal of the company, Mr. Ambani said that he is seeking to acquire 100 million customers at the earliest.
Slowly but steadily, Reliance Jio has been progressing with its venture, starting a trial run when it was available for its employees and buyers of Lyf smartphone. By September 5, all will be able to access the services of Jio which will be free till the end of the year. The data rates being offered is also the cheapest in the world and will cost Rs.50 per GB. All the apps will be free till the end of 2017.
