Jio Effect: Telecom War In India Continues
Dear visitors, Hope you know about Reliance Jio already. Anyway, let me remember you the date 5th September 2016 when jio made available for the public. That was a turning point for Indian telecom network. Everything
changed, Jio was well planned they execute their plan very well. Let me classify the Indian telecom sector into two: Before Jio and After Jio.
Indian Telecom networks: What was the Scenario before Jio launch
The idea, Airtel, BSNL, Aircel, Reliance, Vodafone, and Telenor were the competitors. Where Idea, Vodafone and Airtel were the main competitors. We were paying Rs 1 Paisa per second for voice calling even with some offer activated. And the internet charges also very high. For Around Rs 200 you were getting only 1GB Data for a Month. Yeah, just 1GB. All networks were almost the same in these offers. That was the time all Indians was searching for Free internet tricks. And of course, there were some free internet tricks working for Airtel and other networks that time. Yeah, it is not affordable to pay high amount of money every month for Internet, so everyone surely searches for such free internet tricks and tips. But still not everyone into smartphones and internet in India at that time. But this changed after Jio launch
After Jio’s Launch: Indian Telecom sector
Jio launched on September 2016 and till March 2017 they provided free services. Yeah, completely free. Users are allowed to use free unlimited high-speed 4g internet data, free calling, and free SMS. And after March 2017 they came with amazing offers like with just Rs 400 you get unlimited internet and calling for 3 months. So you are paying only Around Rs 125 for each month for unlimited services. Yeah, Everyone started switching to Jio network. The real war between Indian networks starts here. Airtel, Idea, and Vodafone started losing a good amount of users. So they are forced to reduce their charges. They also started providing jio similar offers.
And the current situation is, All networks started providing unlimited internet data [but have a limitation in high-speed data] and free calling. Thus we can say that jio changed the Indian Telecom section completely. Still, the war continues and the ultimate benefit is for users. We can expect more new exciting offers from our networks.
Currently Jio is having more than $3.6b revenue. They make trends in Indian telecom sector and also apps. Their Jio Music, Jio TV, Jio Pay, AJIO apps also getting good response. Jio executed their plans very well.
