Jio subscriber base surges to 7 lakh: Report

By June 15th, 2016 AT 10:18 AM

Jio’s subscriber base has reportedly surged to 7 lakh due to the availability of 4G SIMs through LYF smartphones in the country. The telco is currently offering 4G LTE services under the extended trial launch, even as there’s no official word on the commercial launch in the country.

The total usage of these 7 lakh subscribers was at around 13 million GB, which translates into 18.57 GB per user, as per the internal data accessed by IANS. An internal source told the wire service that Jio has surpassed the third leading operator in some circles in terms of cumulative data usage.

“In Gujarat, for example, the third largest operator generates 1.5 million GB monthly, whereas we have generated 1.8 million GB,” the source was quoted as saying. The person added that the company can become the leading player in terms of subscriber data-use even before our full commercial launch

“At this rate, we expect that by next month we will be the leading player in terms of subscriber data-use even before our full commercial launch. We expect to touch 2.5 million users and we are potentially looking at 50 million GB,” he added.

Jio had earlier this month opened its high-speed 4G network for public in a number of metro cities by eliminating the need of showing a referral invite from RIL group employees to get a new connection along with a LYF smartphone. The move came along with the launch of its newly launched website Jio.com, through which Jio has officially started providing invites for interested customers.

The 4G SIM cards come with three months of free unlimited data and 4500 minutes of voice calls suggesting that a commercial launch – even if limited – is just a be a quarter away.

Analysts though widely expect Jio to launch full scale commercial operations later this year, around December.
