No, Jio’s Free Services Are Not Getting Over On 31st March 2017!
Reliance Jio had already broken many records. The company is offering six months of free unlimited services which include free data, free voice & SMS to its subscribers.
Recently the company had extended its free services which will be valid up to 31st March 2017. So, now Reliance Jio users need to celebrate because Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio is about to extend its free services up to the end of June 2017.
All services of Reliance Jio won’t be free after March 31st except the voice calls. Reliance Jio is likely to come up with Rs 100 plan for existing users.
Reliance Jio will ask subscribers to pay Rs 100 each month for three months until June-end for availing free data and other services after the Happy new year offer which will expire on March 31st.
The reason why the company had not yet revealed the price of the offers officially is that the company fears it might lose customers. However, Rs 100 for data is very low in the Indian market.
So, by charging Rs 100, Reliance Jio will also be able to know how many subscribers are interested in its services. Chris Lane, a senior analyst, stated.
“We expect many will go back to using their primary number if the (free) offer is withdrawn, and Jio could well lose over half its subscribers if it starts charging more without fixing the call drop problem.”
Another analyst said “But it has to come up with cheaper tariff because other incumbents have already launched reduced packs. This price war is a burden on the company (telcos) and the government loses on license fee as well.”
So, Reliance Jio is set to dominate the telecom market once again with Rs 100 offer. However, we have to wait for some more time simply to get the confirmation about the Rs 100 offer from the company. So, what do you think about this? Simply share your views in the comment box below.
