Reliance Jio has brought a “new JioPhone 2021 offer” for JioPhone consumers. This is a bundle plan, in which the customer will have to pay Rs 1999 on buying the JioPhone, as well as 2 GB per month data with unlimited calling for up to 2 years. The second plan is Rs 1499, in which the customer will also get 2 GB per month data with unlimited calling for up to 1 year with JioPhone. The offer also takes care of existing JioPhone customers. On paying a lump sum of Rs 749, they will get rid of the hassle of recharge for one year. Unlimited calling and 2 GB per month data will also be available. The offer will be applicable across India from March 1. The offer can be availed at all Reliance Retail and Jio retailers.
The situation of 30 crore 2G consumers remains miserable. While smartphone users often do not have to pay for calling, feature phone consumers who use 2G for voice calling have to pay from Rs 1.2 to 1.5 per minute. At the same time, up to Rs 50 per month has to be paid to keep the connection running. Jio has described this offer as a big step for 2G free India. In the last few years, the number of people holding JioPhone has reached 100 million. Jio is eyeing those 30 crore 2G consumers who use feature phones.
Speaking on the occasion, the director of Reliance Jio, Aakash Ambani stated that, “When the world is on the verge of 5G revolution. Then 300 million people in India are stuck in 2G. They are deprived of basic internet facilities. For the last 4 years, Jio has made the internet accessible to all and every Indian has got the benefit of technology. Technology is no longer the privilege of a select few. The New JioPhone 2021 offer is another step in that direction. In Jio We will continue to erase this digital divide ”
JioPhone gained more popularity due to their cheap price and good battery. This feature phone is currently being used by a large population of India. So far, the company has launched two phones in this series. The first phone in this series was the JioPhone. After that the company launched JioPhone 2. It topped the feature phone sales chart and is currently the leader in the feature phone market. Reliance Jio has branded JioPhone as ‘Smartphone of India’.
