Reliance Jio To Offer 300 Minutes Of 4G Calling At Re 1
Ahead of the impending launch of Reliance Jio’s 4G services, rival Reliance Communications on Tuesday announced app-to-app 4G calling at Re 1.
The Anil Ambani-led firm will bundle 300 minutes of app-to-app talking, valid for 30 days at Re 1, translating into 10 minutes usage per day under the limited period offer.
Users will get a daily data credit of 7 MB into their accounts that can be used to make these calls, Reliance Communications CEO Consumer Business Gurdeep Singh told reporters here.
These apps will include the likes of WhatsApp, FB Messenger, Skype, Google Hangout, IMO and Viber.
RCom, which has 110 million subscribers, however, did not disclose the number of 4G users.
RCom’s 4G LTE network operates in the 850 MHz spectrum band.
Operators in the country, including the likes of Airtel and Vodafone, have been pushing their 4G services launching offers like data credit and cheaper tariffs.
Reliance Communications has launched a new 4G app-to-app calling offer where users can buy 300 minutes of free data calling at Re 1.
The new ‘Call Drops Se Chutkaara’ offer has been introduced as a measure to combat the escalating call drop issue in the region.
The offer will be valid for a month at just Re 1.
Considering the offer is just 300 minutes, users will be allotted 10 minutes of app-to-app calling per day or 7MB data regularly. This data can also be used for browsing but definitely won’t be sufficient if you are an active user.
The offer has been launched on an experimental basis and banks upon the popularity of instant messaging apps such as WhatsApp, Viber, Skype and other similar apps.
