However, the service provider has received grave reviews among the users for its services. While many are satisfied with the free data, calls, and other offers that it provides them, the rest are facing issues with the connectivity, data speed, calling issues, and more.
In this situation, might be confused if you can port your number to the Reliance Jio network. Here, we at GizBot, give you suggestions regarding the same. Take a look!
Welcome Offer is all set to be extended until March 2017
The Welcome Offer that bundles free and unlimited 4G data, voice calls, messages and app content is officially offered to the Jio users until December 31, 2016. However, recent speculations suggest that the same will be extended until March 2017 to lure more users to the service and offer the freebies and other benefits of the SIM card for an extended time period.
Should you port?
If you are planning to port to the Jio network only for the Welcome Offer, you needn't rush to do it as you have five more months to enjoy the Welcome Offer benefits.
4G speed offered by Reliance Jio is too slow
As per numerous users of the Reliance Jio SIM card, the 4G speed offered by the Jio network is too slow. A recent report suggests that the Jio 4G speed is just half of that offered by Airtel. Right now, there are many users on the network as the SIM card can be got free of cost and due to the Welcome Offer. However, once the tariff plans announced by the service provider goes effective, the number of users will surely drop and we can expect better 4G speed.
Should you switch to Jio now?
If you want to experience superior speed, you can wait for the Welcome Offer to expire. On the other hand, if you want to enjoy the benefits of free and unlimited data, you can try it now.
You can enjoy free calls for lifetime
With the Reliance Jio network, you can enjoy making free voice calls and no roaming charges for lifetime, claims the service provider. However, TRAI has asked the network to end their lifetime offer for free calls. If you are looking to enjoy this free calls offer, you can clearly port your number to the Reliance Jio network.
Should you port to Jio?
Of course no other network provides free lifetime calls and roaming to their users. Eventually, switching to the Jio network is benefit if you want to enjoy this offer.
Note: Instead of porting your primary number, you can get a SIM card free of cost to try the network's services. This way, you can still enjoy the services of Jio without changing your primary network.
