If Jio gets 50 million customers then are they happy with it or they want to be No . 1 telecom company means they need approximately 200 million customers if that so what will be there next offering because a better offering than prime customer will piss them off or if they don’t provide better offer what’s the incentive for those who are not on prime to join Jio

Jio is still very competitive vis-a-vis offers from the incumbents. Furthermore, Jio apps will sweeten the deal.

Today I was at a local shop to port my Vodafone into Jio and many were coming for Jio Prime recharge and also Jio people are selling Sims in colleges. They should extend last date for about 15 days. If people see improved speed after April first they might opt for Prime.

But those who waited got benefitted with Prime costing Rs.49 now, effectively. Many of those who recharged hastily in the beginning got their money stuck.
