The most talked about Reliance Jio 4G has supposedly surpassed its own expectations and is drawing a tough time for the other telecom companies, claimed Ambani in the recently held Reliance Jio event.
As a new addition in the world of telecommunications, Reliance has gained momentum based on its business strategy of delivering 'unlimited' internet access for its subscribers. However, with the whole new initiative that Ambani has announced, there seems to be a real doubt if Jio can live up to their promises to deliver high-speed data with free voice calls for life.
New Initiative for Jio
The telecom company has recently unveiled their next step to migrate all the old LYF Preview Offer users to the newly launched Welcome Offer. With this new initiative, Jio is supposedly contradicting its own statement of offering 'unlimited' high speed data with strict
terms and conditions.
Jio Welcome Offer: Overview
Jio Welcome Offer is expected to come with just 4GB high speed data limit per day, and not unlimited. So, once you consume 4GB data in a days time, you might experience a major drop down in the internet speed, which can be as low as 128kbps. Although 4GB free data doesn't seem to be too less for the regular internet users, the users hoping to power each and every device of their house or workplace, need to think of their decision to subscribe to Jio.
Have Jio SIM? Received the Message?
Mr. Ambani announced that the SIM cards issued prior to September 5 will be automatically migrated to Welcome Offer. The process will be gradually conducted, and all the Preview Offer users will shortly receive a similar text message on their respective 4G smartphone - "Your Jio number is now active on the Jio Welcome Offer." As and when your smartphone receives this message, the user is really going to miss on their unlimited data experience, which will be restricted to a 4GB daily cap.
Other benefits will remain the same
Needless to say, the other benefits including unlimited voice calls, regardless of any network, 100 SMS/day, and free access to all the Jio premium apps such as JioTV, JioCinema, Jio Music and others will continue to serve the users.
How to Migrate from Preview to Welcome Offer
In case if you haven't received the SMS of being migrated to Jio Welcome Offer, this is how you can check on the status of your Jio SIM. A user can download MyJio App from play store and eventually follow a few simple given instructions to successfully generate an Offer Code. The Reliance head also asserted that all the sim card issued after September 5 will be under Jio Welcome Offer and not Preview Offer.
Road Ahead for Jio Users
Any 4G mobile user, interested in subscribing a new Jio SIM, can do so without much of a hassle now, as the company is now generating offer barcodes through their MyJio App. Both the existing and new Jio users can enjoy the Welcome Offer only until the end of 2016, ahead of which, they will be required to get their Jio numbers recharged to continue enjoying a smooth service.
