Mukesh Ambani claps at Reliance Jio Launch

Reliance Jio : The Newest Telecom Giant in Town

Jio by Reliance, by Reliance, is now officially open for business. Offering beyond competitive prices, this new entrant on the telecom scene is all set to shake up the current services on offer by telecom giants in India.

Jio is a 4G – only network and offers free voice calls, for both local and national. At the start, the Jio special tariffs were accessible on Reliance Lyf phones. Now all 4G, VoLTE supporting, smartphone users can try out this new service provider.  There’s extremely exciting prepaid and post-paid plans, starting at a meagre figure of Rs 19, for a one day plan , wherein consumers are paying just for the data they use. The monthly plans start at Rs 149 and extend up to Rs 4999 for a 150 GB plan. The month, for these plans, is calculated as 28 days.  The free service for calls will last until 31 December 2016, post which tariffs will set in.  In addition data used between 2 am and 5 am will be unlimited. Average download speed ranges from 18 to 20 Mbps and average upload speed ranges from 14 to 15 Mbps.  Moreover, customers get over 100 text messages free per day.


Keeping up to date with technology, Jio has already launched its own app that lets you check detailed usage for voice calls and data consumption , find nearest Jio stores, identify Jio hotspot locations for free Wi-Fi, download and view account statement as well as raise and follow-up on service requests. The app is has a pleasing and easy to use interface. The Jio SIM is supported by all leading smartphone manufacturers including Sony, Samsung, Asus, Videocon, Panasonic, OnePlus, Micromax, Motorola, Lava, LG, Huawei and HTC, among others. For iPhone users, the SIM will be compatible only with the following models iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S Plus and iPhone SE.

On the flip side, if you do run out of the 4 GB data pack, the recharge rates start at Rs 250 per GB on pre-paid tariffs and for post-paid subscribers data would be unlimited but at a reduced speed of 128 kbps. In addition, if your prepaid account balance falls short of Rs 20 then Reliance would deactivate your account. You could reactivate it by paying a fine of Rs 20, however the balance in your account at the time of deactivation is forfeited. In short, Reliance Jio would be beneficial to customers who mainly plan to use it for its free calling feature. Those who take it for data usage may end up burning a hole in their pocket.

The launch of this almost unbelievably priced network has seen long queues outside stores selling the coveted SIM. Customers across the country lined up outside the stores several hours before shutters went up and in many states people had to be turned away as stores ran out of application forms. When applying for a Jio SIM, do remember to carry along a couple of passport size photographs and some ID proof, preferably your passport or Aadhar card. Do note that Jio SIMs are absolutely free of cost, so don’t let yourself be charged for the card. Reliance does plan to launch a eKYC verification process within the next couple of months that will have the application process completed in 15 minutes flat. A sweet deal indeed.
