Jio users can enroll to Prime membership by using the Jio app, Jio website or by walking into a nearby Jio store.

Cellular operators' association COAI today expressed relief that newcomer Reliance Jio has announced "price points" for data services post April 1, which although "aggressive" will not bleed the industry. Also, Jio users consumed more than 100Cr GB of data per month on the Jio network!

The move will intensify the price competition that has already crimped the industry's revenue and profits in the last six months.

They will be providing free Voice calls for local and STD across the country.

Jio customers had consumed over 100 crore GB of data in January 2017. But Rs.99 Jio Prime Membership is extra that you have to pay to use this new offer. So, even if you are not a Reliance Jio user right now, you can still get unlimited mobile data at Rs. 10 per day for another year.

In a value conscious market like India, Jio has disrupted the market with its unique launch and free voice offer. That is effectively just Rs 10 per day.

Reliance Jio Infocomm (RJIL) has two fold of 4G base stations when compared to any other telecom network in the country and is aiming to cover 99 percent of India by the end of this year. The service offers only 100 free SMS per month. They might be forced to take Jio's lead and offer higher data usage limits. The service is also available for prepaid users with validity of 28 days. Of this unlimited data 30GB or 1GB per day will be at full 4G speed. From April 1, Jio services will be paid.

The older telcos have asked telecom dispute tribunal TDSAT (Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal) to look into telecom regulator TRAI's (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) decision to allow Jio to continue free promotional offer beyond stipulated 90 days. Further, the plans offer 20GB at Rs 1,499, 35GB at Rs 2,499, 60GB at Rs 3,999. The company, however, did not provide more details on these offers.

Ambani announced the launch of Jio Prime Membership Programme which will begin from March 1 and will remain open till March 31, 2017.
