Reliance India Limited chairman Mukesh Ambani spoke about the Jio sim cards and said that it was the fastest-growing technology company in the world. Ambani spoke about Jio outlets and said that the e-KYC has allowed the activation of SIM within 5 minutes which was the fastest experience for sim activation anywhere in the world. Ambani said that Jio successfully rolled out eKYC across 2 lakh outlets in India. Jio sums it up, he said that this was nearly equal to the total number of ATMs in India. Ambani further stated that the company was in the process of doubling this network to 4 lakh digitally enabled outlets by March 2017.
Ambani said that Jio had outgrown Facebook, WhatsApp and Skype in a matter of the rate of growth. He said that in a matter of 83 days, Jio had managed to add 50 million customers on its 4G LTE all-IP wireless broadband network. Ambani informed the media that a JIo customers used 25 times more data than an average Indian broadband user. Speaking of its customers, Ambani said that Jo has managed to gain over 6 lakh customers every single day since its inception on September 1.
Although, Ambani did complain about not receiving the required support from the existing operators despite the “unprecedented love” for Jio. He expressed his disappointment and said that the benefits of Reliance Jio’s superior technology had been denied to customers due to the anti-competitive behaviour of other “incumbent” operators. Ambani informed that in the last 3 months over 900 crore voice calls from the Joo network to the networks of the 3 largest competitors in India have been blocked. Ambani said that the JIo was and shall remain to be “customer-obsessed organisation”.
