Reliance Jio is reportedly offering 10GB additional data to select smartphone users. A report claims that the Mukesh Ambani-led telecom operator is offering Android users connected to its network additional data of up to 10GB as part of its celebration that marks completion of two years in India.
As part of Jio Celebration Offer, Jio users are reportedly getting 10GB additional data credited to their Jio 4G numbers. Reliance Jio commenced its wireless mobile service in September 2016 and in the past two years, the company has changed the shape of India’s telecom sector. The introduction of its 4G-only network with cheap data plans has driven the country into one of the fastest growing data consumption country in the world.
In order to celebrate the milestone, Reliance Jio is said to be offering 10GB additional data to all its users. This 10GB data is being broken down into 2GB data per day for the next five days. At the time of writing, Jio users in the BGR India team did not see additional data credited to their account. There is a possibility that additional data is being offered to users at different phase in order to contain the data capacity.
