Reliance Jio has extended its free voice and data offer till 31st March, 2017.
“Starting December 4, 2016, every new Jio user will get the data, voice, and full bouquet of the Jio apps free till 31 March 2017,” said Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani at an event on Thursday.
Reliance Jio is introducing ‘Happy New Year Offer’ which gives access to free data and voice calls till March 31, 2017. Existing Jio customers will continue using ‘Free Welcome Offer’ till December 31 and will automatically be migrated to ‘Happy New Year’ offer.
With TRAI making it clear that Jio’s Free Welcome Offer can’t be extended to new subscribers post December 3, 2016, the company is introducing ‘Happy New Year Offer.’ The new offer will be available from December 4, 2016 to March 31, 2017. Under the new offer, subscribers will get free voice and mobile data but there is a catch. Reliance has downsized the FUP from 4GB to 1GB per day. “On New year day all free welcome offer will be migrated to Jio New Year offer,” said Mukesh Ambani.
Reliance Jio says it has experienced data issues because of extensive usage and feels 1GB per day is enough for more than 90 percent of its consumers. The company will also offer access to the suite of Jio apps, which bring services like live TV, on-demand movies, mobile wallet to name a few.
