“The Jio’s Celebrations offer was introduced in September to mark the telco’s two years anniversary”
Jio has extended its Celebrations Offer that it launched in September 2018 to mark its second anniversary to November and December months as well. As part of the offer, the telco is once again offering 8GB of additional data to all its customers. The benefit is being offered with no additional charge and it’s being doled out to Jio prepaid users.
The 8GB of additional 4G data comes in the form of a voucher that is automatically credited to your account. You can check it under the under the ‘My Plans’ section of MyJio app. The data comes with a validity of four days, and as was the case previously, a user can only use 2GB of data per day as part of the company’s fair usage policy (FUP). As the screenshot above shows, the data a subscriber consumes will first be deducted from the Celebration Pack; once that 2GB allocation is exhausted, the data bundled with the recharge pack will be used.
In just two years of operation India, the Jio has grown leaps and bounds. The company with a subscriber base of more than 252.3 million has achieved the feat thanks to the lucrative data-voice benefit it offers. As per Jio, its customers consume an average of 11GB of data per month. Even voice calls, which are free on Jio’s network, now average 761 minutes per user per month.
After changing the landscape of telecom market, Jio now eyes India’s broadband market. It has already rolled out its Jio GigaFiber service in the country, and as per the Reliance Industries Ltd chairman, Mukesh Ambani, “the next generation FTTH services are now being made available to our customers to further enhance our value proposition to our customers.” The Jio GigaFiber broadband service is touted to bring high-speed – up to 100Mbps – internet connectivity more than 50 million homes across 1,100 cities in India.
