UPDATE: Reliance Jio is now sending out a new message to affected customers in Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh who faced issues during the outage. The message suggests that affected users will get a “2-Day complimentary unlimited plan” which will automatically get applied to the ongoing plans of affected users tonight.
“The complimentary plan will become active post the expiry of your current active plan,” adds the message. A similar message may/may not be sent to affected Jio users in other telecom circles as well.
Reliance Jio’s network is down for many users and users have taken to Twitter to complain about the issue. While it is working fine for us, a number of people have written on Twitter that Jio is showing “no service” for the past two hours.
Some of the users have also reported that they are experiencing Jio network issues since morning. A few Jio users reported that Jio’s broadband connection is also down.
