Reliance Jio which was the talk of the town until earlier this month, taking the back seat thanks to the Demonetization bomb by the Govt has again made it into the news thanks to the Extension of the Unlimited Data, Voice, Video, WiFi and Jio Apps offer from the deadline of December 31st 2016 to 31st March 2017. This announcement was made at the Reliance Industries special event and Reliance has named this offer as the Jio “Happy New Year” Offer. Reliance has been eyeing a user base of 100 million before the free offer ends, the company has reached a user base of 50 million and is now eyeing the 100 mn user base target by March 31st.
The same offer is not bening carried on after December 31st but slight changes have been made to the amount of 4G data being given to each user which will be explained in details later on in the post. This Jio Happy New Year Offer is not only for new customers but also for existing users who will be automatically migrated to this offer post December 31st.
How much 4G LTE Data will be given each day in Jio Happy New Year Offer:
Under the new offer Reliance Jio will be offering 1GB of high speed 4G LTE data per day.
What will be the speeds after consuming 1GB 4G LTE data per day?
After consuming 1GB 4G LTE data for the day, the speeds will come down to 128Kbps.
How much Free 4G LTE Data will be given to each SIM per month?
By calculating 1GB per day it comes to 30-31GB 4G LTE data speeds per SIM per month from January 1st.
From when will the existing Jio SIM users get the Happy New Year offer?
Existing Jio SIM users already using the Jio Welcome Offer who now have the 4GB / day 4G LTE data limit will migrate to the Happy New year offer from 1st Jan 2017 with the 1GB / day 4G LTE limit.
With the help of aggressive marketing like Home delivery of Jio SIM cards and Jio SIM card centers propping up at all busy intersections across the country, the company will surely reach its target of 100 million users much earlier than March. With the 1GB data cap or FUP limit per day we can expect the data speeds to be much stable before the Jio Happy New year offer ends.
