Reliance Jio users are probably jumping in joy after listening to what Mukesh Ambani said during the press briefing on December 28. Ambani said that all the Jio users will get free data, video and voice-calling till March 2017 as against the earlier announcement of December 2016. He also said all the existing users will be able to avail this ‘Happy New Year’ offer.
The chairman and managing director of Reliance Industries didn’t miss an opportunity to laud Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his demonetisation drive. “Today, I want to congratulate and applaud our honorable Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi-ji, for his bold and historic decision to demonetise old currency. By doing this, our Prime Minister has given the strongest possible push to the growth of a digitally-enabled, optimal-cash economy in India. This decision is an important step in his ongoing efforts to change the mindset of the people of India,” he said.
In case you didn’t know, Reliance Jio has 52 million users in just three months and the number is ever growing. According to Ambani, six lakh users are subscribing to Jio every day. “In the first 3 months since its birth, Jio has grown faster than Facebook, WhatsApp or Skype. In 83 days, Jio has crossed 50 million customers on its 4G LTE ALL-IP wireless broadband network!” he said.
Guess those users are way too happy because memes and gifs are dominating social media after the announcement. Take a look.
