Reliance Communications has announced its new ‘Call Drops Se Chhutkara’ offer through which the company is offering 4G LTE services 300 minutes app-to-app calling for just Re 1. As of now, the offer is only meant for people residing in Delhi-NCR and can be used over any voice calling app such as Skype, IMO, Whatsapp, Google Hangouts and Facebook Messenger. The service is not only available within an app but also across all the voice calling apps.
When going into the detail, the entire 300 minutes offer is divided over a 30 days’ time period resulting 10 minutes of voice calling per day. For this, Reliance said that each user’s account will be credited with 7MB data every day which if left unused won’t be carried forward but forfeited.
Also, if the data is used for any other app, it will be reduced proportionately. Though the company is claiming HD voice quality, we wouldn’t take their word just yet.
“We have always had a strong emotional connect with Delhi-NCR and the people here, and are excited to redefine voice calling with our ‘Call Drops Se Chhutkara’ offer, providing app-to-app talking and complete freedom from call drops. Using the Reliance 4G LTE network, customers will experience High-Definition quality and instant connectivity, freedom from slow Internet access and blazing data speeds on the digital superhighway. Best of all, existing and new Reliance 4G LTE customers will switch to the new way of calling, and enjoy instant and crystal clear voice with great savings,” Gurdeep Singh, cfhief executive officer, consumer business, Reliance Communications, was quoted as saying.
However, this offer seems to be directly against the concept of Net-Neutrality which states that there must be no discriminatory price based on the type of applications. So it remains to be seen whether this special offer is struck down by authorities or not.
