The Jio users continue to get free unlimited voice and data till 31st December 2016.
An alleged Reliance Jio postpaid bill of Rs 27,718 has been doing rounds on social media network for last couple of days. The bill is reportedly issued to Mrs Ayunuddin Mondal of Kolkata circle. The bill shows November 20, 2016 as the due date and after the due date the penalty of Rs 1,100 would be charged.
It is a well known fact that the Reliance is offering unlimited 4G data and Calls (VoLTE support) under its Jio Welcome Offer which is valid for all users until December 31, so no one will get a bill till then.
To clear the air around the alleged bill, Reliance Jio spokesperson has said to ET , "The bill in circulation is fake. Currently, we are offering services under Jio welcome offer, and we reassure our existing customers as well as potential customers who subscribe to Jio connection till December 3 that benefits of free unlimited voice and data will be available to all till 31st December 2016."
Latterly, Reliance Jio was in the line of fire by the Jio users for not providing the promised speed, which later the company justified by pointing out to the Fair Usage Policy referring to which one is only eligible to use 4GB 4G data per day.
We set off to get feedback from Jio users and sellers at Reliance Digital stores. Here is what we heard.
Reliance Jio yesterday announced the Happy New Year Offer extending its free services till 31st March 2017.
Keeping in view, disproportionately use of data by some users under Welcome offer, Jio has capped the high-speed-data limit to 1 GB per day per user.
Jio's Happy New Year offer, by extending all its free benefits to March 31, has queered the pitch for incumbents massively
oor speeds, regular call drops, and poor service are to be blamed for continuous decline in growth.
To be precise, Jio wants to reach up to 80 percent of India's population in order to provide high-speed internet, free calls and SMS.
For manufacturing these feature phones, Reliance Jio is said to be working with Lava International and Chinese original equipment maker.
Jio's unique welcome scheme which gives users free access to voice and data till December 31, 2016, quickly built up a tremendous fan following and also invited protests from fellow operators.
Mukesh Ambani described the situation as "the newbie being ragged by the big boys".
Further, last week reports suggested that if you are planning to enroll to this Welcome Offer then you need to do it before December 3rd, 2016.
