Jio eyes 50% revenue market share by 2021

Reliance Jio, the telecom venture of Reliance Industries (RIL), is aiming to meet 60% of the demand for data in 2020-21 (FY21) by when data volumes are expected to touch about 6 billion GB per month.

To better compete the Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel has launched its new revamped plans to offer 1GB 4G data per day bundled with unlimited calls to counter Reliance Jio's prime plans. In case you are a new Idea 4G customer, you get 1GB of data per day making it 28GB of data for 28 days. For non-Prime members, the Rs 303 recharge will only get you 2.5GB data for the monthly cycle.

Vodafone has started to roll out a similar offer for its subscribers, and as I write this article, both Airtel and Idea have also announced attractive data plans. Vodafone has announced a new Rs. 342 plan which gives users unlimited calls and 28 GB of data per month, subject to a limit of 1 GB a day.

On this, Reliance Jio offered him 56 GB mobile broadband plan for Rs 499. These plans offer unlimited voice calls to any network in the country along with a certain high-speed data.

Government revenues likely to increase by 50% and the Industry growth was low in last 5 years while the 5 years to see rapid growth with data explosion Shift in Industry Revenue Mobile market to expand to Rs 3 lakh cr primarily from data, said the company presentations to the analysts.

⇒ Unlike the Vodafone and Airtel offer, this offer like Reliance Jio's offer is only for select subscribers.

For existing customers, he had announced a Jio "Prime Membership programme" wherein customers could enrol by paying one-time fee of Rs 99 and continue to get the existing benefits till March 2018 at "a rock-bottom introductory price of only Rs 303 per month". For Rs499 and above, customers will get a free add-on of Rs301 giving them 10 GB of free data.

While Reliance Jio's special offer only extends to its Prime members, Idea's offer will only be available to those who are contacted by the telco. Though Airtel has not answered to it yet, the rules of its plan state that on Rs. 345 plan, you will be able to get incoming calls for free when you are on roaming but outgoing calls will be chargeable. You can make unlimited calls to local and national numbers, be it a mobile or a landline number. Also offered was SIM card delivered to Sharma's home and Adhaar based activation.

After signing in with the Idea number, one can check the availability of the plan from the app-exclusive offers section. You can also contact the Idea Cellular customer care to find out.
