Well, we have a world record in hand and it’s from non-other than the much hyped Indian telecom operator Reliance Jio.
Reliance Jio in its first month of operation has added around 16 million subscribers to its network. If we go precisely, within 26 days of launch starting from 5th September 2016, around 16 million mobile subscribers have enrolled in the ‘Jio Welcome Offer’. That’s first in the world from any telecom operator.
“We are delighted and humbled by the overwhelming response across India to the Jio Welcome Offer. Jio is built to empower every Indian with the power of data.” sad Mr Mukesh D. Ambani, Chairman, Reliance Industries Limited. “We are delighted that people have recognised this and are utilising our services to the fullest. We are customer-obsessed and committed to improving every day to exceed expectations of our customers.”
The quick addition of 16 million subscribers was possible with the digital e-KYC Aadhaar card verification. Reliance Jio is offering this facility across 3,100 cities and towns in India. The e-KYC Aadhaar card verification enables the customer to complete the Jio SIM activation within fifteen minutes.
Those who have missed, the ‘Jio Welcome Offer’ is a free bundled benefit with each new Jio 4G connection. You will get unlimited voice minutes to any network, unlimited messaging, 4G LTE data usage and unlimited usage of Jio apps suite. The free benefits are valid until 31st December 2016 and after which you need to choose any of the ten Jio plans.
