Well, it’s definitely the time of Jio…
Consider the facts –
It has become a behemoth in providing tele services in just about 6 months.
Its services recently crossed the 100 million mark in just 170 days!!
Meaning 7 customers in just a second *woah*
This company has forced players like Idea to merge with Vodafone to combat this situation…
And Jio sims are still selling like hotcakes in the stores.
Could this be a revolutionary telecommunication company or just “jab tak free hai tab tak chalao” ? Only time will tell.
What I feel as a consumer, that it’s a big win for us. I have been using it as a secondary sim for more than 4 months now and could tell you it’s good in parts. Daytime internet speed is low and voice quality also not that good. Most of the time I ultimately have to call from my primary sim.
It’s exceptionally good at night though ! Getting speeds upwards 2-3 Mbps (tested on ookla) in no big deal.
Recently it launched its prime membership offer which I feel is going to give a serious fight to the incumbents
Here’s the deal-
People have to register and become a subscriber by the 31st of march 2017 and pay an upfront fee Rs 100 for the year. Then they have to pay
Rs 303 ( I don’t understand the logic of the extra Rs 3) every month for the same services that we are enjoying right now – unlimited calls , 30 GB data (approx Rs 10 for 1 GB cap per day) , various Jio HD channels, Jio mag etc.
Considering my bill is like 300-400 pm this is a much, much better value for the services I currently pay for.
But should I use MNP and use this as my primary sim ? That’s the question.
What would you do ??
