About Jio Prime Membership Plan
From day one, RIL chairman Mukesh Ambani’s goal was to get 100 million subscribers and make the fastest growing 4G network in India. And at that time, Reliance was not such a big operator. So, he decided to make a new brand and to share free stuff to get huge subscriber base in almost no time.
So, he launched Jio Welcome Offer where they started providing free 4GB high-speed data per day along with free voice & video calls and SMS. As per the rule of TRAI, any promotional offer provided by telecom operators can’t be run more than 90 days. For this rule, Jio extended Welcome Offer till 31st December only.

By launching this plan, Jio will test that how many users are ready to pay for their services and how many users are using Jio sim just because of it’s free. Ambani has invested a lot in this business. So, it’s simple to understand that he will surely start pushing users to pay for their services and start making the profit out of his Jio business.
