Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani announced the launch of Prime membership for Jio customers and revealed tariff plans in his address two weeks back. Today, the company has started charging for the new membership which will be available for the next 30 days.
Ambani said Reliance Jio crossed 100-million subscribers, in less than six months of its launch. "Jio added 7 customers every second of every single day for the last 170 days," he said in his speech.
Jio had crossed 50 million subscribers in just 83 days, adding at an average rate of 6 lakh subscribers per day and surpassing the subscriber addition rates of global giants like Facebook, WhatsApp and Skype.
