In January, Jio stated that it has recorded over 160 million customers in its network and the numbers seem to be exceeding quickly in March with them now topping 175 million all over India.
Reliance Jio Prime users will get the benefits of the subscription extended to another year without paying any additional fee. Jio has now announced that the prime membership will be free for another 12 months for all the existing Jio Prime members. For the existing JioPrime members, Jio has renewed the membership until March 31, 2019, but the new customers still have to make a recharge of Rs 99 to enrol in the JioPrime scheme.
Jio users who have already paid for Prime does not have to buy it again.
Members who purchase the subscription fee after April 1 will have to pay Rs 99 to enjoy the membership. The Jio Prime benefits will continue for the user for the next one year.
Jio is not revealing any other information related to the said app, other than hinting that it will be coming soon. Simply select the number whose Prime subscription you want to extend from the list, and hit Proceed. But the users need to renew the membership by themselves as this is not an automatic process. As soon as you open it you will get congratulations message on the top of the window, click on get now button.
Upon clicking the icon, it will take you to the next page that says "Jio Prime is getting bigger".
Reliance Jio's disruptive entry into the Indian telecom market in 2016, had unleashed a no-holds-barred tariff war that forced incumbent operators to slash data and voice rates.
The timing of the teasers coincides with the closure of the Jio Prime subscription on March 31, 2018.
For non-JioPrime membership users, Jio has a different set of plans, which doesn't match with the benefits of JioPrime exclusive plans. "We will get back to you shortly". Last year' subscription was set to expire on March 31, 2018. After the free plans it started the Jio Prime Membership and nearly everyone opted for the membership for the fee of Rs.99.
