Jio Continues to Expand Its Bundled Subscriptions
Jio has been actively launching new plans with bundled subscriptions. Recently, the telecom operator new annual plans with Amazon Prime subscription, which offers 2GB of 4G data daily. The plan is priced at Rs 3227.
The Reliance Group of Industries is also close to acquiring the OTT giant Hotstar from the Disney group, under a multi-billion dollar deal. If the deal goes through, then we can expect more affordable bundle plans from Jio with a Hotstar subscription.
As per TRAI, Jio is the largest service provider in India in both cellular and broadband. The telecom giant has a market share of 52% in internet services in the country. Jio’s wireless subscriber base stands at 442 million, ahead of its competition from Airtel and Vi.
Jio is also expanding its internet services to satellite communication services. The company has already received a GMPCS license from the Department of Telecommunication. This will enable Jio to provide internet, voice, and messaging services directly through low-earth orbit satellites.
Jio is also pushing its AirFiber services, which also come bundled with OTT subscriptions. Jio AirFiber utilizes the standalone 5G infrastructure of Jio, to provide broadband-like internet services in areas where optic fibre connections are not available.
