Reliance Jio may not have yet announced when it plans to commercially launch its 4G services, but its unlimited preview offer has already caused quite a bit of buzz. The company has already managed to amass over two million users, and its imminent entry is already causing a ripple effect in the industry. What started out as an exclusive deal for Reliance Digital’s LYF smartphone buyers, has now expanded to over 10 smartphone companies. People are also seen standing outside Reliance Digital and Reliance Digital Xpress Mini stores in long queues akin to a new Apple iPhone launch.
To get your hands on a free Jio SIM card, you essentially only need to own an eligible 4G smartphone. The 90-day Jio Preview offer gives users unlimited mobile data, HD voice calls, messages and access to Jio’s suite of apps like JioPlay, JioOnDemand, JioBeats, JioXpressNews, JioSecurity, JioDrive, JioMags and JioMoney among others. Apps like JioPlay lets you watch live TV on the go, JioOnDemand lets you watch the movies from the company’s library, JioBeats is the company’s music streaming service, and JioMoney is a digital wallet that lets you transfer money to other people, as well as pay utility and various other kinds of bills.
