Yesterday in the Annual General Meeting (AGM) Reliance Chairman Mukesh Ambani revealed complete details of Reliance including the Tariff plans. When we compared the Reliance Jio 4G tariff plans with other operators, we can find that a small improvement regarding data prices, but the change means a lot to the mobile users who vexed up with high data charges by Airtel and other operators.
The primary stunning element in the Reliance Jio is the company made voice calls completely free and started depending on the data revenue to make profits. Reliance Jio voice calls operate through VoLTE, which is a part of 4G network. While making voice calls your mobile data will also be consumed. So indirectly we are moving to the data-centric telecom market from the voice-centric market.
Whenever you make phone calls from Reliance Jio, a certain amount of bandwidth will also be deducted from your data balance. That means you are paying to the phone calls also indirectly.
The telecom companies in the US started using Voice over IP (VoIP networks) for a long time instead of traditional telecom infrastructure, now with the Reliance Jio entry same technology is going to change total scenario in the Indian telecom sector.
Reliance Jio looks like a gimmick, but we have to understand that it is the latest business in the digital world. All the areas are benefiting from the latest technology. India is still using traditional phone networks even after technology changed drastically. So This is the time to move forward. Reliance took that responsibility in the telecom sector.
