Idea loosing the plot in my opinion…. Let’s see what they can do in two years!!!!!


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.
