- Data cap for high-speed free Internet is now set at 1GB per day
- The promotional offer will continue till March 31
- The company has been estimated to reach 100 million users by March end
After the expiration of company’s Welcome Offer on December 31 last month, Reliance Jio’s Happy New Year Offer has come into effect from Sunday and set the per day data cap (high-speed) for all service users at 1GB. As part of the promotional offer, users will be able to make unlimited phone calls and enjoy 1GB of free high-speed data per day till March 31.
To recall, Reliance Jio was offering 4GB of high-speed Internet data and unlimited voice calls per day as part of its Jio Welcome Offer that ended last month. On December 1, the company’s Chairman Mukesh Ambani announced that the company was extending its free services till March 31 through its Jio Happy New Year Offer, which was applicable to all the SIM cards acquired from December 4.
Those users who were previously availing the Welcome Offer are eligible to continue using the free services under the Jio Happy New Year Offer till March 31, but with the daily cap of high-speed 4G data reduced to 1GB after December 31. Users will also be able to recharge to avail high-speed data once they hit their daily limit.
As per an analyst report from last month, the user base for Reliance Jio is expected to reach 100 million by the end of March this year. However, the report clarified that this user base is expected to shrink after the company starts charging users for its services. The prices for prepaid plans available after March 31 have already been detailed by the company, as have the postpaid plans.
