Key Jio Stats Revealed In Reliance AGM Today

How to Buy Jio Free Feature Phone- Pre Order Jio Rs 1500 4G VoLTE Mobile

You have to pay 153 a month to keep the unlimited 4G services and data.

Narinder Kumar, analyst at Cybermedia Research, said the feature phone from Jio will impact the current market of 2G handsets as well as the entry-level smartphone segment. "Let me introduce India ka Intelligent SmartPhone-JioPhone", announced Ambani. To prevent the misuse the company will ask you to pay sun of Rs. 1500 as a security deposit.

While the oil-to-retail and telecom conglomerate's shareholder meetings are never short of significant announcements, RIL chairman and India's richest billionaire Mukesh Ambani outdid himself this year by showering gifts on shareholders and customers alike.

As I confirmed in my previous article, JioPhone will be free.

The JioPhone will be available from September and the pre-booking will start from August 24. The phone will be available first to beta testers August 15 onwards, and pre-booking for the free 4G VoLTE smart feature phone to all consumers will begin on August 24. Jio is bundling content, data and the device to consume them on.

Mukesh Ambani's Reliance Industries, whose digital arm, Jio, had caused revolution in data connectivity when the company offered unlimited free data to its customers a year ago, has now announced it will provide free smartphones to its customers. Bharti's data ARPU fell from Rs 202 per month to Rs 162 or by a fifth. Jio will offer internet services at the cost of Rs 153 per month against the entire industry charging Rs 4000-5000, Ambani said.

"Digital Life will no longer be the privilege of the affluent few", said Ambani. As Jio has witnessed one of the largest migration from free to paid subscription, it is expected that the new Jio plans will be more beneficial to bring more customers under its umbrella. Of the 78 crore mobile phones in India, over 50 crore are feature phone users. Their intention is to make the phones available to their users at-least 5 million per week.

Reliance Jio has already been very disruptive in the telecom sector, but Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani doesn't want this disruption to slow down. This smartphone supports all the languages, and the people can communicate with the device through the voice commands. The new phone would give "affordable" device to these 50 crore users and "end the digital exclusion in India". The outliers, the customers who continue with their 2G phones, comprise two of every three phone users in India and they are unable to access data on their current handsets because of exorbitant costs. "In fact, with the tsunami of calls originating from Reliance Jio's network, Airtel loses 21 paise for every minute that is carried on its network", it further said.
