Home Stories Jio Life, Go Digital and Social!

Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd called as Jio is a subsidiary of Reliance Industries Ltd. It is the telecom service wing of RIL whose headquarters is in Navi Mumbai, India.

Jio Life

The beta version of the Jio services was launched in December 2015 along with Shah Rukh Khan as the brand Ambassador of Jio.

The company has a network of more than 250,000 km of fibre optic cables in India that supports the broadband services.

Do you really require a Jio SIM connection?

The Jio SIM is free for everyone but it will be provided upon submitting the Aadhar car as ID proof and a photo at the Jio stores.

The services were commercially released in India in September 2016. It offers free data and free voice calls till 31 December 2016 which later got extended till 31st March 2017 as announced by Mukesh Ambani, the chairman of RIL.

The facility of national roaming in India will be free to its Jio customers. It also gives free access to Jio’s apps and services.

There will be unlimited night data usage between 2 am and 5 am for its users subscribing the Jio plans.

The tariff plans comes in both versions of prepaid connection as well as in post paid connection. The plans are very competitive social offering lesser prices than most of its service competitors like Vodafone, Airtel and Idea.

Apart from the key benefits received from the Jio SIM card, it is combined with a few social challenges on using the Jio services. Some of them are highlight below:

  • The Jio SIM is supported only on smart phones having 4G connectivity. The older version of smart phones with 2G and 3G will not support Jio. To overcome this issue it is noticeable that the company has released LYF smart phones in January 2016 to support the SIM compatibility.
  • Jio fee voice calls are supported on VoLTE smart phones. This is necessary because the voice calls are dependent on the data connection in the device. It will not be an issue between Jio to Jio calls but to make calls to other network providers like Airtel, Vodafone and Idea will be a challenge. In such cases the users need to install an app called Jio Join to enable the facility to make calls to other telecom operators.

Also if your social phone does not support 4G or VoLTE then Reliance has a product called JioFi, a 4G device with a built in WiFi router and a battery.

  • There a number of apps developed by Jio to cater their additional social services to its Jio customers. The apps are free to download by everyone. These apps will work properly only for Jio SIM card subscribers. A few of the apps provided by them are MyJio, JioCinema, JioPlay, JioMusic, JioMoney, JioMusic, JioTV, JioSecurity and so on.
  • Customers after having tried the SIM card have come up with a few areas that need improvement in the Jio services. As per their reviews the data speed is awesome in the initial days of its release but later it became disruptive because of the increasing number of its users.

Also the network coverage and the network signal have to be considerably enhanced to meet the ever growing expectations of the customers when compared to the social services offered by the Jio’s competitors.
