Reliance Jio has created a very tight competition among telecom providers by offering Free Voice and Free Data Plans. There is a big surge in number of internet users in India after the launch of Reliance Jio. Digital Transactions are also on increase path day by day. Also Jio free offer has been extended till March 31, 2017. So even more customers are expected to switch to Reliance Jio.
All plans include free voice calls. The launch of Reliance Jio triggered sudden growth of 4G enabled phones which are VoLTE enabled as well. Reliance uses VoLTE ( Voice Over LTE) which is data oriented compared to circuit switching calls offered by all telecom operators till now. All VoLTE phones are smart phones by default from all manufacturers. So people from rural areas may face difficulty in using touch phones as they are habituated to using traditional feature phones.
Reliance Jio decided to penetrate into rural areas by offering them low budget VoLTE enable featured phones which are meant for utilizing free voice calls offered by the network. Also Reliance Jio is going for Tower Share policy with the state owned BSNL to reduce the time to construct new towers and maintenance over heads.
Reliance Jio already released VoLTE enabled smart phones with model names Earth, Water, Wind and Flame which are worth for money are doing exceptionally well in the market. The price may vary from ₹999 to ₹1999.
