Reliance Jio announced the availability of JioPhone at a special price of Rs 699 during the festive season of Dussehra and Diwali.
India’s largest 4G operators aims to add 35 crore Indians, who are still on 2G networks on BSNL, Airtel and Vodafone Idea, to its 4G network with the latest offer.
Reliance Jio has already added nearly 7 crore 2G users on the JioPhone platform ever since its launch.
4G customers of Reliance Jio can save Rs 800 as the current retail price of JioPhone is Rs 1500. This price is far lower than many of the current 2G feature phones in the market.
JioPhone customers who join Jio through the Diwali 2019 offer, Jio will offer data benefits valued at Rs 700. For first 7 recharges that the customer does, Jio will additionally add Rs 99 worth of data.
The savings of Rs 800 on the JioPhone and the Rs 700 worth of data, totals to benefit of Rs 1,500 on every JioPhone.
“Jio will ensure that no Indian is deprived of affordable Internet and the fruits of the Digital Revolution. By offering the JioPhone Diwali Gift, we are making an investment of Rs 1,500 towards bringing every new person from the Bottom of the Economic Pyramid into the Internet Economy,” Mukesh D. Ambani, chairman and managing director of Reliance Industries, said.
