Jio has doubled its customer base to over 215 million now.
215 million customers within 22 months of start is a record that no technology company has been able to achieve
anywhere in the world.
In the last one year, we have achieved UNPRECEDENTED GROWTH starting with an already existing large base:
Data usage has grown from 125 crore GBs per month to more than 240 crore GBs per month.
We were the world's largest mobile data network last year and the gap from the others has only widened in the last
Voice usage on the network has grown from 250 crore minutes per day to more than 530 crore minutes per day.
The amount of video consumption has grown from 165 crore hours per month to more than 340 crore hours per month.
Doubling of these metrics at such scale is truly unparalleled.
Our customers are actively engaged with us for more than 290 minutes per day on an average.
Jio's motto is simple:
We are determined to connect everyone and everything, everywhere – always at the highest quality and the
most affordable price.
Like our customer metrics, our NETWORK also CONTINUES to expand rapidly.
In terms of COVERAGE…
Our network has a wider coverage than any other network in India.
We are on track towards achieving our target of 99% population coverage with 4G-LTE.
This means that Jio will be present in every district, taluk, gram panchayat and village of India.
When it comes to CAPACITY…
Over the past 12 months, we have more than doubled our NETWORK CAPACITY.
Even after serving the needs of our 215+ MILLION customers, the capacity utilization of the Jio network is LESS
Which means, we can multiply our customer base without additional investment.
We have achieved this unprecedented network growth while maintaining our NUMBER ONE position as the
FASTEST network in India… as attested by the TRAI speed-test data for each and every month of the past year.
We recognize that just around 1% of our customers are yet to enjoy the best user experience some of the time.
But we are working tirelessly to satisfy and delight them as well.
Jio is a customer obsessed organization and will work harder to ensure that not even one consumer remains
dissatisfied on our network.
Let me now update you about the JIOPHONE.
JioPhone has taken the country by storm.
More than 25 MILLION JIOPHONE USERS in India.
We are now taking the JioPhone to the next level, with added capabilities and functionalities.
The three most popular apps YouTube, WhatsApp and Facebook will be available to all the JioPhone users from 15th
Jio was born with a purpose.
To transform India with the power of the Digital Revolution.
For this vision to be realised, every Indian must become a DIGITAL INDIAN.
However, as many as 500 million Indians still use feature phones, who cannot use the Internet.
The doors of Digital Life are closed to them because of the problem of affordability.
Which is why, last year we offered the JioPhone – India Ka Smartphone – for a fully refundable deposit of Rs 1500.
In other words, for an effective price of zero.
25 million Indians have availed this scheme and become JioPhone users.
This scheme will, of course, continue.
Today we are introducing another attractive offer to feature phone users.
It is the JIOPHONE "MONSOON HUNGAMA" offer.
Starting July 21st... they can exchange their existing feature phone for a brand new JIOPHONE for just Rs 501!
We have thus reduced the effective entry cost of the JioPhone from Rs 1500 to as low as Rs 501.
Starting 15th August, our JioPhone2 will be available at an introductory price of only Rs 2999.
Our purpose is to accelerate the Digital Revolution in India with the extreme affordability of a JioPhone, so that each
and every Indian can access the internet and enjoy the Digital Life.
Further details about both these offers will soon be made available on jio.com.
With the added functionalities, our wider network reach across India and strong retail presence across India, the goal
that I have now set for our Jio team is to enable 100 MILLION users on this JIOPHONE platform in the shortest
