Mukesh Ambani, the chairperson and the managing director of Reliance Industries lauded the success of ‘Jio’ and said that Jio has crossed the 100 million customer mark in just 170 days.
During his address, Ambani made some key announcements like, from April 1st new tariff plans will be launched putting an end to all the free video calls, data usage etc. Reliance Jio commercially launched its services on September 5, offering unlimited access to HD voice calls (on Jio eligible VoLTE phones), messaging, video calls, 4G data along with access to Jio’s suite of apps. Jio had also introduced Aadhaar-based paper-less Jio SIM activation across 3,100 cities and towns in the country.
