Reliance Jio’s previous Happy New Year offer will end on March 31, and the free offers will end along with it. Meanwhile, the speed on Reliance Jio network seems to have slowed down, as complained by a lot of people on social media. Incidentally, there has been a battle of sorts between Airtel and Jio regarding internet speeds. Meanwhile, Reliance Jio had rolled out its Jio Prime membership plan from March 1, in order to make its customers stay with the network service. After the end of the free offer period, customers will not get everything for free. If you wish to continue using the earlier ‘Happy New Year’ offer, you will have to pay a subscription fee of Rs 99 on your Jio number. Additionally, you will also have to recharge with Rs 303 every month to continue accessing Jio’s 4G services and also the full bouquet of its media services for one year.
Reliance Jio, Airtel and Ookla have found themselves amidst an internet speed test war. Ookla is a web-based network to diagnose apps and it has taken on Reliance Jio’s claims that its speed test method is flawed. The firm has claimed that it goes great lengths to make sure that the info collected by Speedtest is ‘verifiably correct’. Reliance Jio had approached advertisement sector watchdog ASCI claiming that Airtel advertising that it is ‘officially the fastest network’ is ‘misleading’ and done in ‘mala fide manner in collusion with’ broadband speed tester Ookla. Meanwhile, Ookla has released a statement, where it has said that it ‘fully stands behind the accuracy and reliability of the methodology used to designate Airtel as ‘India’s Fastest Mobile Network’ “.
Here is how Twitterati complained about internet speed slow down on Reliance Jio network:

Like the earlier ‘Happy New Year’ offer, the Prime membership too will give users a FUP limit of 1GB data for each day. Effectively it translates to 30GB data for a month, meaning Rs 10 per day. The last date for enrolling into the Jio Prime membership programme is March 31. But if the speeds continue to be so slow, people might start thinking twice before using a Jio SIM, now that it is not free.
