Reliance Jio now has over 72 Million ‘Prime’ Subscribers

Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Jio has announced that over 72 million users have subscribed for its ‘Prime’ offer.

Jio also said that its free services will be extended by another three months for customers who opt for its ‘Prime’ subscription and Rs 303 monthly-billing scheme or above.

“Considering the unprecedented demand for enrolling to Jio Prime and doing the first

recharge, Jio has extended the deadline for purchasing Jio’s Rs 303 (and other) plans till 15th April,” the company said in a statement.

“This extension will provide the necessary breathing room for users to avoid service disruption during the transition from free to paid services.”

“Customers who could not enrol for Jio Prime by 31st March for whatever reason can still do so by paying Rs 99 along with their first purchase of Jio’s Rs 303 and other plans till 15th April.”

“Jio also announced the Jio Summer Surprise for its Jio Prime members. Every Jio Prime member, when they make their first paid recharge prior to 15th April using Jio’s Rs 303 plan (or any higher value plan), will get services for the initial 3 months on a complimentary basis.”

“The paid tariff plan will be applied only in July, after the expiry of the complimentary service. The Jio Summer Surprise is the first of many surprises for Jio Prime members. Mobile Number Portability (MNP), which allows customers to retain their existing mobile number when they switch to Jio, is available across the country for all customers. Lakhs of customers have already used this facility.”

“For International travellers, Jio’s International roaming service is available across the world, with the best voice and data rates in the industry.”
