Jio announces 4G plans for prepaid subscribers where Jio actually launches 4G Voice plans instead of 4G data plans – Jio smartly bypassed the True 4G plans by offering Unlimited Voice calls at a time when people are spending Rs 300+ monthly balance to make even On-Net calls.
Jio launches Unlimited 4G Voice along with Unlimited Night 4G downloads – People are as usually very happy at such offering but –
Question is: Are these Jio 4G plans final ?
People choose Incumbents (Airtel, Vodafone or Idea) mainly for strong coverage and Struggling operators (Rcom, Tata Docomo, Aircel or Telenor) for cheap tariff plans but things become completely opposite when cheap plans are expected from Incumbents & Wide coverage from Struggling operators.
Problems were always in Telecom industry – some were too lazy to expand coverage – Where others are busy trying their best to milk customers.
incumbents players have even changed the true meaning of ‘UNLIMITED’ !
Data hungry users mainly choose Home Broadband for heady downloading where most of the downloads take place at Night as because almost all popular Broadband internet providers offer Night Unlimited.
Jio smartly launches plans targeting these two most crucial factors – People still happy at 4G plans !
‘Jio somehow forgets Jio is 4G service and people will use internet on mobile to get access to different digital services on-the-go’ ?
Mukesh Ambani, at AGM, today clearly mentioned that Jio is True 4G network, he wants True Digital Revolution by offering affordable 4G plans to all.
Jio knows 300MB or 400MB data plans on 4G network are completely useless – Even Android mobile will eat up all data once users enable Cellular data service !
Exact Start & End time for Jio Night 4G downloads is 2am to 5am – This is ridiculous and against users expectation !
So Jio is blind – launch 4G plans unwillingly ? !
Jio is not blind but company launches 4G plans unwillingly for sure due to pressure from Incumbents & DOT/TRAI. Incumbents stop providing enough ‘POI (Point of Interconnections)’ since Startup is testing for long and Jio users are putting huge load on network – Even ‘Government is losing revenue generated from Interconnection termination charge’ according to Incumbents.
At the end of the day, Jio 4G users are facing call drops and getting busy msg while calling to Airtel, Vodafone or Idea numbers. Jio official launch is only solution to this problem but issue still continues !
Subscribers to throw Jio Sim after December 31st, 2016 !
Jio launches 4G plan with price Rs 19 offering 100MB of 4g data and, ending plan with price Rs 4999 offering just 75GB of 4g data for daytime usage – All jio plans come with Night unlimited usage from 2am to 5am.
Jio also announces to completely remove charges for 4g Voice call but Voice over LTE uses data – Jio did not mention whether VoLTE calls will be free or charge data from main balance.
If Jio maintains such high-tariff having insufficient Daytime 4G usage and joking ‘2am-5am’ Night slot for unlimited 4g, then Subscribers are surely going to through Jio Sim after the end of Jio Welcome Offer.
Consumers Happy, Investors Loss !
Jio 4g plans are better than others to some extent but Investors are unhappy because Jio 4G plans have fewer scopes to target subscribers for generating revenue.
But Investors are forgetting the upcoming scopes in Digital Revolution of India that’s fully dependent upon Jio network, resulting more and more data usage. 4G will become primary part of daily commodities – 5p/MB tariff is truly affordable – people will accept it.
Isha & Akash Amabni failed to identify Subscribers – Make People OWL !
According to Mukesh Ambani, Newly launched 4G plans are youth-oriented and based on last two years experiences of Isha & Akash Ambani.
Jio Junior directors perhaps forget Digital Revolution is only possible only if 4G services come useful when people need it rather when Human need rest !
Jio basically followed incumbents rule – Make people owl ! Keep network free !!!
Jio 4G plans are Gimmicks ? !
No, Mukesh Ambani is not stupid not junior directors – Jio announces such 4g plans in hurry – but offers satisfy both Indian Telecom subscribers as well as Investors.
Mukesh Ambani speech at AGM and these 4G plans clearly give a lesson and warning to Incumbents players.
Jio 4G True Data Plans on January 1st, 2017
Current 4G plans from Jio are incomplete and mainly Voice oriented. Jio surely to offer data oriented 4g plans after Dec 31st, 2016.
Few things are still unclear
- Jio announces ‘Welcome Offer’ until Dec 31st, 2016 which means Jio is still in Test mode.
- Unlimited 4G is unnecessary but Speed based or Volume based plans attract more subscribers
- Mukesh Ambani clearly shows his place against lobbying at AGM
- No unlimited plans for Daytime, not even with Speed Cap
- Jio knows 100mb/200mb 4g plans are useless still company launches such plans
- Jio optimizes only Band 40, rest of two bands 3 & 5 yet to get upgrades for 4g speed
- Jio has huge chunks of LTE spectrum still launches Night Unlimited ignoring Day usage
- No discounts for LYF phones announced at AGM
Something fishy is happening in background !
Either Jio will continue these plans and end up disappointing subscribers or Introduces revised plans to counter incumbents as well as makes subscribers happy.
Jio is going to launch 4g service for all from Sept 5, 2016 but commercial service will be start from January 1st, 2017.
