Telecom Operators Rolled Out Plans to Compete With Reliance Jio
Soon after Reliance Jio hit the market, the other telecom giants have had spent several sleepless nights strategizing on how to take on Jio, and retain back their customers who are being attracted by the Jio's unlimited offers.
To take on Jio, starting from Bharti Airtel, Vodafone India, Idea Cellular and other telcos have introduced several entry-level tariff plans offering more data at low cost. Although not on par with Airtel, Vodafone and Idea, RComm is not quite far away in the race.
Started to Offer Unlimited Voice Calls
Soon after Reliance Communications announced its collaboration with wireless operators like Aircel and MTS, it has recently rolled out unlimited voice calls for its customers. This initiative has been taken up by the telecom operator in order to compete with Reliance Jio's exciting data and other offers.
Rcomm's Unlimited Voice Calls At Just Rs. 153
RComm users can avail the unlimited voice calls on their Reliance numbers at just Rs 153. Although, the telecom operator had offered unlimited calling benefits earlier, what's new about the Rs. 153 plans are that it offers similar benefits at a much cheaper rate, to retain back their customers, as a majority of them are moving to Jio for unlimited voice calling benefits, under the Welcome Offer, valid until 31 December.
Unlimited Voice Calls Restricted To Reliance Number
Unlike Bharti Airtel, RComm's unlimited voice calls are limited to just Reliance users in the country. Yes, like the other telecom operators are allowing users to make calls between networks, Reliance has restricted the offer to just Reliance numbers.
However, the plan is also clubbed with 1000 Minutes, allowing the customers to make calls to any other number in India, valid for 28 days.
Offer Limited to a Few Subscribers
RComm has rolled out this offer for just a few circles including, Kolkata, Delhi and Tamil Nadu. However, the company is said to extend the offer to more customers in next few weeks as an initiative to attract old customers, and retain the existing ones from moving to Reliance Jio.
