Reliance Jio tells Vodafone to increase POIs with immediate effect

By September 16th, 2016 AT 6:16 AM

Soon after Vodafone announced its plan to increase the Points of Interconnect (POIs) with Reliance Jio, the latter has released a statement welcoming the decision. However, similar to the statement it released after Airtel’s announcement, RJio has pointed out the Vodafone did not resort to favorable action even after communicating for several months on POI issue.

“The situation has deteriorated significantly in the last few weeks, with over 80 calls failing out of every 100 call attempts. In the last 10 days alone, over 15 crore RJIL calls have failed on the Vodafone network,” RJio said in the statement.

“While RJIL has rolled out a state-of-the-art network, the benefits of superior voice technology have been denied to Indian customers due to the POI congestion. Indian customers have not been able to enjoy RJIL’s free voice offer as a result of such anti-competitive behavior of incumbent operators,” it added.

It has also mentioned that Vodafone and other incumbent operators have been blocking the mobile number portability (MNP) facility for the subscribers who wish to port to Jio. Such actions from the incumbents have gone against the directions of TRAI. RJio has ended the statement saying that it expects the POIs to increase with immediate effect.

This tussle between Jio and incumbents has been going on for some time now. TRAI, today, has ordered all telecom operators to submit call details to examine the traffic pattern on their networks. This would help TRAI to scrutinize the allegations of RJio against incumbents.
