Free voices calls, free roaming, cheaper data: Mukesh Ambani rolls out Rel Jio

rel jioHighlights of Mukesh Ambani’s rollout of the much-anticipated 4G VoLTE service:

* Reliance Jio will move India from data shortage to data abundance.

* Jio’s pricing is about solving customers’ pain points.

* Customer should pay only for one service – voice or data.

* All voice calls for Jio customers will be absolutely free.

* No Jio customer will ever pay for voice calls to any network in India.

* Roaming charges will also be zero.

* I believe that these are the absolute lowest data rates anywhere in the world

* Jio data plans go even further: 5p/ MB or Rs 50/ GB. More data you use, the lower the rate.

* Jio base rate will be 1/10th of other players on data at Rs 50 per GB

* “Life is going digital… I believe in next 20 years we will collectively achieve much more that before.”

* We will become irrelevant if we are not digital in this era. “India and Indians cannot be left behind”

* Data is the oxygen of digital life. Jio is more than just a business. It is a commitment to enrich the life of every Indian.
