Mukesh Ambani, Chairman and Managing Director of Reliance Industries at the company’s special event today announced that Reliance Jio has crossed 100 million customers in just 170 days of launch, adding 7 customers every second on average.
Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani on Tuesday announced the Jio Prime membership for initial 100 million customers of Reliance Jio. Under the Jio Prime plan, Jio members can avail another year of its 4G services at a one-time payment of Rs 99 to be made this March. This means, the Jio Prime members can continue to enjoy the Jio 4G data benefit till March 31, 2018 at Rs 99. Additionally, Jio will charge Rs 303 per month, effectively at Rs 10 per day for another full year. The plan comes into effect on April 1, 2017, the day the existing Jio Happy New Year Offer expires. Existing users can enroll via MyJio app or log into company’s website as well as via Jio offline stores to enroll into Jio Prime membership plan.
Those who do not opt for the Jio Prime subscription plan will be ported to the prepaid or postpaid Reliance Jio tariff plans, which the company had announced in September 2016 while launching its services. Ambani stressed that despite the free data plans not being valid starting April 1, all voice calls on the network will remain free indefinitely - with no roaming charges.
