Reliance Jio may have caused ripples across the telecom sector with its free voice calling and cheap data offers, but looks like the new telecom entrant is far behind the promises made by Chairman & MD of Reliance Industries, Mukesh Ambani.
If you recall, Ambani had made tall claims of 15-minute activations, e-KYC registrations and free unlimited data during the welcome offer.

Clearly, Relaince Jio has a long way to go before the network actually gets their projected 100 million users. If you are one among the many who are dissatisfied with Jio's services, write to us in our comments section below.
