Reliance Jio Stirs Market With Free Calls

Mukesh Ambani, Chairman of oil-to-telecom conglomerate Reliance Industries, offered customers lifetime free voice and roaming and unlimited data under the Reliance Jio (RJio) Welcome Offer starting September 5.

“This announcement will unleash price wars among telcos and users can expect cost of data going down in the range of 25-35 per cent,” Sanchit Vir Gogia, Chief Analyst and CEO at Greyhound Research said.

Mr. Gogia pointed out at possibilities of people opting for two SIM cards. “With Reliance Jio’s network chiefly built for data, voice quality may not compare to its peers, hence users are likely to opt for different sims for voice and data,” Mr. Gogia said.
