Reliance Jio's Happy New Year Plan: Key Highlights
Mukesh Ambani owned Reliance Jio has extended its free 4G services till March 31, 2017 under a 'Happy New year' Plan. This means that all Jio customers will continue to get free data and voice calls without paying anything for additional 3 months. But the company has decided to introduce a Fair Usage Policy or FUP under its 'Happy New year' Plan, which caps the 4G data usage at 1 GB per day for customers.

Here are the key highlights from Mr Ambani's speech.

1) In the first three months of its trial period, Reliance Jio has become the fastest growing company in terms of subscriber acquisition, ahead of the likes of WhatsApp, Skype and Facebook.

2) A Jio customer uses 25 times more internet data than an average broadband customer.

3) According to Mr Ambani around 900 crore voice calls from Jio Network were blocked by its competitors in the last three months.

4) The call block rate by rival companies as of yesterday stood at 20%. In the initial period it was as high as 90%.

5) Reliance Jio has rolled out eKYC (know your customer) facility at 2 lakh outlets in India.

6) The Company has launched home delivery of Reliance Jio SIM cards.

7) The delivered SIM card gets activated within 5 minutes through eKYC.

8) 80 per cent of Jio customers use less than 1 GB data per day.

9) Under the 'Happy New Year Plan' customers will face a 1 GB data per day cap.
