Reliance Jio was launched in public on September 5 this year. Now, the company has announced that it has already crossed a subscriber base of 16 million in just 26 days.
The company claims that it is a world record and that it “achieved this growth faster than any other telecom operator or startup in the world, including the likes of Facebook, WhatsApp, and Skype“.
In a statement, Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani said, “We are delighted and humbled by the overwhelming response across India to the Jio Welcome Offer. Jio is built to empower every Indian with the power of data. We are delighted that people have recognised this and are utilising our services to the fullest. We are customer-obsessed and committed to improve every day to exceed expectations of our customers.”
