Reliance Jio Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani announced the launch of jio Prime Membership for existing Jio customers and revealed tariff plans while addressing a press conference at 21 Feb 2017.
Mukesh Ambani said Reliance Jio crossed 100-million subscribers, in less than six months of its launch. In his speech he said today that “Jio added 7 customers every second of every single day for the last 170 days”.
Jio had crossed 50 million subscribers in just 83 days, adding at an average rate of 6 lakh subscribers per day and surpassing the subscriber addition rates of global giants like Facebook, WhatsApp and Skype.
It’s going to be interesting to see how other telecom operators react. Reliance Jio has basically thrown down the gauntlet by saying whatever data plans you offer, we will give 20% more data for the same price.
Jio users consume nearly as much mobile data as the entire United States of America, and nearly 50 percent more mobile data than all of China.
