At an event Today, Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani made a number of announcements about Reliance Jio, and said that the company will extend its free services by another three months.
“Starting December 4, 2016, every new Jio user will get the data, voice, and full bouquet of the Jio apps free till 31 March 2017,” Ambani said. “This is the Jio Happy New Year Offer.
All existing 52 million users will continue to enjoy the Welcome Offer till 31 December, and then automatically be signed up for the New Year Offer. No need to buy a new SIM.”
Ambani said that 80 percent of its current users consumed 1GB data per day, while 20 percent consumed disproportionately higher amounts – which ended up congesting the network. Thus, Reliance Jio has announced a new daily FUP limit of 1GB, which if exhausted will result in slower speeds.

At the announcement, Ambani also confirmed that Jio has signed up 6 lakh customers every day for three months, thanks to eKYC, and said, “On average, a Jio customer is using 25 times the data that an average broadband user consumes.”
In the three months since the launch, it has seen millions of Indians signing up, and Ambani added that he hopes millions more will join soon. He added that there are 2 lakh eKYC outlets – “nearly equal to the total number of ATMs in India,” Ambani pointed out – and that there will be 4 lakh outlets by March 2017.
Ambani claimed that nearly 900 crore voice calls from Jio were blocked by other telcoms, and Jio thanks the government and Trai for enforcing the license conditions. He added, “call block rates have come down from over 90 percent to nearly 20 percent yesterday, and we are working with all operators to bring this to within the limit of 0.2 percent.”
He also added that Jio now fully supports MNP so all customers can retain their number while migrating to Jio. The company has now integrated home delivery of Jio SIMs. “This will be available in all the top cities by 31 December, 2016.”
