Jio became a nightmare for the leading telecom service providers. With its unmatchable rates, jio offers great tariffs for calls and data.

In fact, even a preview customer can get avail three months of 4G data for free. User can download Jio app, generate a code and go to the nearest Reliance store with appropriate documents for the activation of SIM.
