Reliance Jio Sets World Record By Gaining 16 Million Subscribers In A Month

Business

In a statement released, Reliance Jio claims to have set a new world record by growing faster than Facebook, Skype, Twitter and other such startups. The newly launched 4G telecom venture has gained 16 million subscribers in less than a month. Its direct competitors Bharti Airtel, Vodafone and Idea have a large customer base but they have been operational for almost 15 years in India gain the customers. Reliance Jio on the other hand is set to gain almost 35 million 4G subscribers by the end of October.

In the statement issued, chairman of Reliance India Limited Mukesh Ambani said, “We are delighted and humbled by the overwhelming response across India to the Jio Welcome Offer. Jio is built to empower every Indian with the power of data. We are delighted that people have recognised this and are utilising our services to the fullest. We are customer-obsessed and committed to improving every day to exceed expectations of our customers.”

Reliance Jio’s entry into the Indian telecom market sparked controversy as they made all local and roaming calls absolutely free. The data charges are kept free for 4 months from 5th September. After the introductory period, 10 data tariff plans will be introduced. Jio has introduced paperless Adhaar based sim activation which has cut down new sim subscription time to within minutes.
