You will also know how to get the preview offer with the Reliance Jio SIM card and the list of mobile devices compatible with the service.

Every smartphone user, unless living under a rock, by now will be knowing about the launch of Reliance Industries's new 4G telecom network at their 42nd annual general meeting. As part of its 4G LTE Network services, the company is offering unbelievably low data plans along with free voice calls. The network will be operated by its new company RJio. Is that really super news for the more than 900 million & still growing mobile subscriber base in the country? This article will provide a complete list of all the data plans being offered by Reliance Jio, how to get the SIM card to activate it and other aspects of the service.

Overview

  • Who can avail of the initial offer: Open for all with 4G-VoLTE smartphones.

  • When the Jio services will be enabled: from 5th September 2016.

  • Till when the services will be available: free domestic voice calls and no roaming charge till 31st December 2016.

  • Special Apps offer: The apps offered with data plans will be free till December 2017.

  • What's the special offer for students: Those showing a valid student ID card will get 25% more additional 4G WiFi data benefits.

My query is as to how to avail JioNet public Wi-Fi and where to find the list of hotspots in various cities across India? Do the users require to have a Reliance Jio SIM in their systems to avail free services at the Jio hotspots?
Also is there any data cap in the unlimited free usage offer up to 31.12.2016?
There are reports appearing in the media that a litigation between the company and TRAI is pending regarding allegations that the Reliance has released data packs illegally i.e. they launched the business without paying the spectrum charges to the Government. What are the factual details about such reports?

I am a user of Reliance Jio since 1st september 2016. I got this SIM free of cost from reliance digital store by showing the Jio preview offer coupon code, and the required document. I got it activated in 2 days. During initial 7 days my available data shows 2 GB, 100 SMS and 100 minutes free calls.
Even after completing 2 GB my data is still continuing. It means who ever find 2 GB data in their Jio app, but do not worry as it is unlimited till 3 months.
But the problem starts after 7 days, initially my data was downloaded at 2 mbps speed, now it has dropped to 500kbps and calls are not getting connected. I am staying at Bhubaneswar (capital city of Odisha).
Every where 4 g network of JIO is not available, so I cannot get benefit of this preview offer. Still I am happy as I am getting free 4 g speed for 3 months.

I'm not a user of Rjio but still I am enjoying the launch of Rjio. How? I use BSNL broadband which has cut down the rates with increased internet speed. That is the jio effect!
