Reliance Jio could extend free data offer beyond March 31, 2017 Looking at the popularity of its Welcome Offer, Reliance Jio recently extended its freebies till March 31 2017, and renamed its offer to ‘Happy New Year Offer’. Analysts however believe that Jio’s free offers have already had a massive impact on incumbent operators, and Mukesh Ambani and co. could extend the validity of its freebies beyond March 31.
As per a report from ET, analysts feel that the aggressive tariff plans from incumbents and their strong reply to the competition from Jio could result in Reliance extending the freebies beyond March 31st, 2017 which is the date when the current Happy New Year offer is due to end.
Rajiv Sharma, a telecom analyst at HSBC, said
“Jio may decide to extend freebies a couple of months beyond March 2017 if incumbent telcos get more aggressive on 4G pricing.”
This of course, bodes well for consumers already spoilt by the free goodies raining on them. While we’ll have to wait and see whether the prediction of free Jio offers being extended does come true or not, it’d also be interesting to see how the wars play out and who eventually comes out on top.
