Reliance Industry Limited’s Chairman and Managing Director Mukesh Ambani will address employees and stakeholders on Thursday, 1.30 PM. It is expected that there will be a major announcement for telecom venture Reliance Jio. The company will stream the event live on its social media channels.
Mukesh Ambani-promoted Reliance Jio has crossed the 50 million subscriber mark in less than three months after its full-fledged 4G services launch to emerge as the largest broadband operator in the country.
“Jio — setting a new record — has acquired 1,000 customers per minute (since September 05) and 6 lakh per day. Airtel reached the same milestone of notching 50 million subscribers in 12 years, Vodafone and Idea took 13 years each,” said a PTI report.
The company commercially launched its services on September 5. Jio has introduced Aadhaar-based paper-less Jio SIM activation across 3,100 cities and towns.
Jio connection offers users unlimited access to HD voice calls (on Jio eligible VoLTE phones), messaging, video calls, high-speed data as well as access to Jio's suite of apps till December 31.
With the Reliance Jio Infocomm (Jio) giving free 4G SIM cards and launching affordable 4G-enabled smartphones to connect the next billion, India is set to lead the 4G revolution, the International Data Corporation (IDC) said.
