Though RIL is keeping the agenda of the speech under the wraps, there are quite a few speculations about what Ambani could announce. Since the launch on September 1, it’s been a roller coaster ride for Reliance Jio. After the initial high, Jio’s services have been marred with issues like drop in speeds and call failures. We expect Ambani to address these issues during his speech today.
Despite all these issues, Jio’s Welcome Offer has helped the company garner around 50 million subscribers in less than three months. The Welcome Offer essentially gives users access to unlimited voice calls across India, unlimited high-speed 4G data (daily cap of 4GB), and unlimited local and national SMS. Users also get free access to Jio’s suite of apps that let users stream music, movies, watch Live TV, and more. As per the original announcement, the free Welcome Offer is coming to an end on December 31, post which users will have to pay for data with plans starting from as low as Rs 19 with one day validity.
Reports however claim that Jio could extend the validity of the Welcome Offer till March 2017. But with TRAI’s guidelines not allowing promotional offers to extend beyond 90 days, it will be interesting to see how the company manages to circumvent these rules. Other speculations include the announcement of Jio’s Gigabit FTTH internet service as well. RELATED: Mukesh Ambani to make Reliance Jio related speech tomorrow; three things to expect
