Jio creates a new record by adding 16 million new subscribers in first 26 days of launch

Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd. (Jio) announced today that it has created a world record by crossing 16 Million subscribers in its first month of operations (September, 2016). Jio which launched commercial operations on 5th September has achieved this growth faster than any other telecom operator or start up in the world including the likes of Facebook, WhatsApp and Skype.


Mr. Mukesh D. Ambani, Chairman, Reliance Industries Limited, said, “We are delighted and humbled by the overwhelming response across India to the Jio Welcome Offer. Jio is built to empower every Indian with the power of data. We are delighted that people have recognized this and are utilizing our services to the fullest. We are customer-obsessed and committed to improve every day to exceed expectations of our customers.”

Jio has introduced Aadhaar-based paper-less Jio SIM activation across 3,100 cities and towns. This enables the customer to complete the SIM activation process in a matter of minutes, with only his/her Aadhaar number. This process will be extended across the country and fully stabilized for satisfactory on-boarding experience in the next few weeks.

I am going to get a Jio sim in January, as now it is virtually impossible to get one. Only then will I comment on the QoS of Jio.
