  1. My Jio number still shows just SuSu offer in MyPlans...
  2. I agree that Economic data with decent speed > High speed network. But there is still one more thing, that is much much more important. That is RELIABILITY. Reliability >> Economy > SPEED. In my case, speed of Jio is much greater than Airtel (both 3G as well as 4G). Plus Jio is much economical OBVIOUSLY, comparing Airtel. I always use JIO for Prime Videos, YouTube, Tubemate, etc. I have 3 Jio numbers (incl one JioFi2 pocket router connection) each with Prime Rs999 done already and hence with SuSu offer -- 100GB for 3 months with NO daily FUP. But for simple, yet important jobs like, tatkal train ticket booking, net banking, even e-commerce (for cc transactions), I will use Airtel (even its 3G DC-HSPA+ is much reliable). Just few days back, I was applying for passport for my relative online, using JioFi2. The net disconnects frequently and I got irritated, that I have to use my Airtel's 3G connection (with hotspot) to get the job done without any issues -- duration around 20 to 25 minutes. I got calls in between as well. Jio is NOT 100% reliable. At first glance, everything looks great, right?? Great 23+ Mbps DL speed, 6+Mbps UL speed, just 50+ milli-second ping. Wonderful. But Just take note of two more things there, JITTER and SINR. Here Jitter is 150% of PING, WTF? For a data network with just 50ms ping, jitter is expected to hover in single digit of milli-sec only (worst case <20ms). Jitter shows abrupt change of latency (Not exactly, but something like that). Thank God, there is at least NO packet loss. The second point is BAD SINR -- Signal to Noise Ratio. In Airtel, I have seen SINR @ 26dbm max and worse case it is >10 dbm. In Jio, I have seen even neg SINR values. This shows, still a hell lot of optimization needs to be done on their towers / equipments. The reason I think is THE FREELOADERS. Even now, I know so many people who has NOT even done Rs99 prime recharge, enjoying 4G data (MyJio shows valid till 21 July -- WTF???) without any issues. Jio is THE modern day RobinHood of wireless data, who get money from paid customers and serve the FREELOADERS. I am very very thankful to Jio, as they are the real reasons, we are getting affordable data tariffs. I used to pay 2000+ Rs every month for my single number to Airtel -- all for 8GB data + 10,000 minutes of free calls incl roaming + CUG. But right now I am just paying them Rs649, but getting UnLimited calls + 19GB data per month. I am almost getting thrice the benefits for one-third of the price now, all thanks to Jio for bringing the much needed competition in Telecom sector. But wireless networks have limitations, (thanks to Physics) and by keeping on serving the FREE users will really hurt the experience for paid and loyal customers. I have even heard murmur of few users who have done Rs99+Rs303 recharge and they may NOT recharge after August, if freeloaders get free service till July (as per their myJio app). Jio must NOT forget that for MOST of their PAID customers, Jio is still SECONDARY sim only.
  3. That is why I don't have much hope on ChoRCom. ChoRCom 2G's voice call quality is very very horrible, that even the pathetic BSNL's 2G voice calls are much better. Reg coverage, ChoRCom's 2G GSM was a very very BAD joke. I agree that Jio is NOT a threat to ChoRCom's 2G voice business. They are already giving dirt cheap 2G voice calls for years. But NOW they are NOT alone. Even BSNL, Airtel, Vodafone and Idea have started giving better voice plans (NOT DATA) to their 2G / 3G users. They have better coverage and great voice call clarity as well. Among Telcos, Whoever may be the loser, at last customers are going to be the winners.
  4. I think, what @SUDYEcaZ said is 100% correct. Everybody here in Rimweb knows about ChorCom. It has already lost 2G-GSM license in RoWB, Assam, NE, Orissa and from Sep this year Gujarat as well. Till now, they have survived using the CDMA spectrum and fibre + tower infra, both of which are brain-child of MDA era and ChoRCom did almost nothing after MDA left RIM / CDMA Reliance. Now we all know that most of those CDMA spectrum (75% sold to MDA after liberalisation for 4G LTE) and fibre + tower infra (51%) are sold out. Already their most high end customers moved away to AVoId and Jio, mainly due to the way they handled the CDMA to 4G transition. So let us see the one in other tent, the Aircel. Our TN is the strongest circle of Aircel and even here in my home town, I am seeing hundreds of port outs from Aircel to Airtel or Vodafone or Jio every week. So NO points for guessing the situations in their other circles. Aircel always used to be lazybones when it comes to spectrum utilisation, ask the people in Kerala, where it has 3G license, but almost NO 3G coverage, except in few TN border cities. They have scaled down to almost ZERO in circles like Gujarat, Haryana, MP+CG, UP(W), Kerala and they are LAST in AP, Maharashtra, Mumbai, Karnataka, Punjab as well. Here the beauty is, among these circles, Aircel has 3G spectrum in Kerala, AP, Karnataka, Punjab. They are just wasting their precious spectrum. The survival situation of Aircel and ChoRCom combo is like brand new MISSION IMPOSSIBLE movie. But here, instead of Great action Hero(s), the starrers are STUPID + CRAZY + LAZY + GOOD FOR NOTHING comedians.
  5. Very TRUE, sadly...
  6. Well, itz these goof-ups and apathy, many people are NOT ready to use Jio as their primary operator..
  7. Yes, Most probably.. They have to INSERT the SuSu offer before all the other PAID recharges, immediately after the end of HNY offer. So they have stopped / hide / removed the paid recharges (and add SuSu offer there) so that paid recharges DO NOT get started on 16th April 2017. Really makes sense, if that's the case. I have done Rs99 prime + 13 times PRIME Rs149 recharge for my wife's Jio number before 30 March 2017. Later on first week of April, to get Summer Surprise offer, I had done Rs999 recharge on that number as well. Now MyJio is showing 100GB FREE till 15-July-2017. So far, so Good. Another thing to note is, still I am getting daily 1GB on that number (apart from the 100GB without daily limit) as well. Heard that even those who didn't recharge till now are enjoying 1GB per day even today. Too weird, FREELOADERS are ready to leave Jio, but Jio is NOT ready to leave FREELOADERS..
  8. The modern East India Co is trying its level best to milk their 2G/3G only users. But it may back-fire them, as told by @LTE4G above...
  9. Looks like Jio wants users to avoid their LYF handsets and go for others (Vivo here). I like their honesty here..
  10. @LTE4G I doubt FreeLoaders will NOT recharge. Because they have NO-WHERE to go, except Jio. They will atleast do Rs99+Rs303 to get 4 Months of continued FREE 1GB per day usage. I think, they may even go for Rs99+Rs499 to get 2GB per day for 4 months. Because they got used to free data for 7 months and other operators' offers are nowhere near Jio's offerings. So we have to wait and see...
  11. @LTE4G you are right. But my doubt is whether that 100GB will be usable in future? With many people going for 499Rs recharge now (to get 2GB/day benefit) and 3 months of DOUBLE LOAD THAN NOW, I am NOT really confident now. Let us wait and watch.
  12. Well, someone like Jio, who throws cat among pigeons is much needed in the DTH sector...
  13. Very TRUE...
  14. Good to see, I am not alone. Further due to the Rs339 (2GB 3G data + UnLimited onnet + 25 offnet minutes per day for 28 days) of BSNL and Rs349 (1GB per day + Unlimited LIKE calls) offer by AVoId group, even BSNL and AVoId network is pathetic nowadays. Good competition gives good network to all, but killing competition ultimately kill choices for customers.
