Reliance Jio Prime gets 72 milion subscribers; extend offer for 15 days
On the last scheduled date of the Jio Prime subscription membership on Friday Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd (Jio) announced the extension of the offer and said that it has garnered over 72 million paid subscriptions for Jio Prime.
“In just one month, over 72 million (and still counting!) Jio customers have signed up for JIO PRIME. We, at Jio, are honoured and grateful for this tremendous response,” MD Reliance Industries Limited, Mukesh Ambani said in a letter.
For the first recharge of Rs 303 and the one-time payment of Rs 99 the company has extended the deadline till April 15.
Further he added, “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.”
Additionally the company will also be offering a ‘Jio Summer Surprise’ wherein every Prime member will be offered complementary services for a period of three months.
“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,” a release by the company said.
Jio also announced that this offer would be the first of many other offers.
“The Jio Summer Surprise is the first of many surprises for JIO PRIME members,” the company said.
In relation to the Jio free service coming to an end, Ambani said, “Users who do not recharge by the extended date of 15th April will experience degradation and/or discontinuation of services.”
“Jio has created the world’s largest greenﬁeld 4G LTE wireless broadband network, with over 100,000 mobile towers. And we will add another 100,000 towers to our network in the coming months,” Ambani added.
