Jio has enabled India as the world’s largest data-market growing from 20 crore GB per month in 2016 to over 600 crore GB per month now.
Despite the staggering growth in data-consumption and 4G coverage across the country, there are still over 40 crore Indian consumers who have not benefitted from the advent of the latest technologies.
Jio believes that the ambitious objectives of the ‘Digital India’ mission can be achieved only if India is made “2G-mukt” in the shortest time-frame possible. The Government and TRAI should mandate this through policy. This requires continued investment at an industry level. The whole industry needs to come up the curve and raise standards to meet the aspirations of Indian citizens and fulfill the nation’s digital agenda. Jio is committed to support this objective through the following actions.
It aims to bring the 40 crore 2G customers to experience and participate fully in the Digital India eco-system. It intends to provide the best quality and customer experience for all Jio customers. It aims to continuously innovate in the digital eco-system to provide affordable services and products for the Indian consumers. It always strives to being regulatory compliant, and work with the industry to keep the telecom sector a vibrant part of the Indian economy and a vital engine for the country’s growth.
Once TRAI initiates a consultation process for revision of telecom tariffs. Like other operators, Jio too intends to work with the Government and comply with the regulatory regime to strengthen the industry to benefit Indian consumers. With appropriate increase in tariffs in the next few weeks, Jio plans measures in a manner that does not adversely impact data consumption or growth in digital adoption and sustain investments at the same time.
While ensuring its commitment to a sustainable sector, Jio will compete on the basis of quality and service in the marketplace. Jio commits to always keep the customer at the center of everything and ensure India sustain its global leadership as the world’s largest data market.
