Reliance Jio Extends Free 4G Data Till 31 March 2017



Mukesh Ambani, chairman and managing director, Reliance Industries (RIL) announced that effective from 4 December 2016, all the Jio subscribers will be entitled to free Data, Voice, Video and the full bouquet of Jio applications and content, up to 31 March 2017.

Packaged under the ‘Jio Happy New Year Offer (“JNO”)’, the benefits will be available to all subscribers signing up for Jio services up to 3 March 2017. The existing Jio Welcome Offer (“JWO’) users will continue to enjoy the unlimited benefits under JWO up to 31 December 2016, following which they would be automatically signed-up for the JNO as well.

One difference in the new offer is that until now the free data limit per day was 4GB, it will be reduced to 1GB under the new offer. Post 1GB, the download speed will be reduced to 128kbps. Reliance claims that 80% of its customers use less than 1GB per day and by reducing the limit all users get fair share of network capacity.

Reliance Jio currently has over 52 million users, with 50 million being added in 83 days.

The CCI further explained that the arrangements do not create any entry barrier for new entrants. It seems very unlikely that an exclusive arrangement between a manufacturer and an e-portal will create any entry barrier as most of the products which are illustrated in the information to be sold through exclusive e-partners (OPs) face competitive constraints.
