Migration to the Welcome Offer

Delay in SIM activation
Suddenly, there is a huge demand for the Reliance Jio SIM. Of course, the company came up with the eKYC activation, but it didn't implement the scheme in all the Jio Stores. Eventually, there is delay of over 10 days for the Jio SIM to be activated.
Drop in 4G speed
Once the service provider announced the Preview Offer, there are many complaints about the Reliance Jio speed. The Jio users in crowded areas are facing issues with low speed. There are many apps that provide free and unlimited content to the Jio users, but the speed drops while downloading the same in crowded areas.
Free night data is a catch
Of course, Reliance Jio is offering free night data to the users. But, go through the terms and conditions of the tariff plans announced by the service provider. The free night data is only a catch. The free night data can be enjoyed only between 2 am and 5 am that is such an odd timing for users.
