With Reliance Jio extending it;s JIO Preview Offer to a large number of smartphone brands, the current private telecom players have been seen taking measures to keep their existing customers away from thinking about MNP. With national MNP services available and Reliance JIO network being available across India, it is obvious for most smartphone users to switch.
There is a term that is popular among telecom experts these days; it’s called Jio Effect. With Jio 4G service being the benchmark of the next generation mobile connectivity, private as well as government players who are stuck on 3G service are trying their best to keep customers from switching. Only the time would tell, what would happen in the end.
