to 100 million paid customers said Ambani Here’s the full text of Mukesh Ambani’s speech at company’s AGM: Dear Friends Let me begin with Reliance Jio It has been only 10 months since the launch of Jio And what an incredible journey it has been Jio has broken one world record after another First nobody believed that we could acquire customers fast enough to justify our ‘200000 crore investment in the world’s largest greenfield 4G LTE all-IP network Team Jio stunned the world They over-delivered on the 100 million target that I had set for them at our last AGM In less than 170 days more than 100 million customers signed up for Jio’s services On an average Jio added 7 customers per second every single day This was the fastest adoption of any technology service anywhere in the world Faster than even Facebook WhatsApp and Skype This is a testament to the unwavering trust that shlf1314ns have placed in us and their love for the Jio brand Today Jio has over 125 million customers I sincerely thank each and every one of our customers Aap Sab Ko Main Mere Dil Se Dhanyavaad Deta Hoon Second before the launch of Jio sceptics said that Voice over LTE is a globally unproven technology But we proved them wrong We enabled Jio users to make unlimited voice calls from anywhere to everywhere in shlf1314 – absolutely free Jio users consistently make more than 250 crore minutes of voice and video calls every single day We are grateful to our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s Digital shlf1314 vision which allows the benefits of technology to be passed on directly to shlf1314n customers Third many analysts believed that shlf1314 can never be the largest mobile data market in the world Again Jio proved them wrong In just 6 months of Jio’s launch data consumption in shlf1314 went from 20 crore GB to 120 crore GB per month and has been multiplying ever since Now Jio customers alone are consuming over 125 crore GB of data every month including 165 crore hours of highspeed video every month making Jio the largest mobile video network Indeed shlf1314 has overtaken USA and China in mobile data usage Before Jio’s launch shlf1314 was 155th in the world in mobile broadband penetration Now shlf1314 is number 1 in mobile data consumption and well on its way to becoming number 1 in mobile broadband penetration in the coming months Fourth sceptics said shlf1314 being shlf1314 free users will never convert to paid users Once again Jio’s customers proved them wrong Starting March of this year Jio successfully undertook the largest migration from free to paid services in history And we have converted majority of our free customers to paid customers Today Jio has more than 100 million paying Jio Prime customers Most of them have recharged on Jio’s ` 309 or higher plans Jio Prime members will continue to get tariff benefits with Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan and Every Day More Value plans Additionally they will get many attractive surprises Jio Prime members have a special place in our hearts We thank them for their trust in Jio and I want to commit that Jio is a customer-obsessed organization and will always walk the extra mile in serving them every single day Reliance Jio is now the largest mobile video network in the world – ahead of China and the US in terms mobile data usage (Express photo by Prashant Nadkar) Dear Shareholders There are 78 crore mobile phones in shlf1314 However let us not forget that in this 78 crore there are more than 50 crore feature phone users who have been left out of the digital revolution They cannot avail any benefits of a smart phone much less the benefits of a 4G LTE smartphone They can neither afford the cheapest 4G LTE smartphone nor the exorbitant cost of data charged by existing 2G operators At last year’s AGM I had said that data is the oxygen of digital life and no shlf1314n should suffer because of data scarcity and unaffordability Sadly a vast majority of mobile users in shlf1314 are starved of data This digital disempowerment and unfairness must end Jio is committing to end it today We shall achieve this in three ways – Connectivity Data Affordability and Device Affordability First connectivity: Jio is a data strong network built for the internet from the ground up with the highest speeds and the best coverage This is a significant advantage we have over all other shlf1314n operators For the past 5 months the TRAI SpeedTest portal which officially monitors the quality of telecom networks in shlf1314 has consistently ranked Jio as the clear 4G network leader in coverage usage and data speeds Our network continues to rapidly expand across the country And in the next 12 months Jio services will cover 99% of our country’s population Because of Jio shlf1314’s 4G coverage will be more than its 2G coverage It took 25 years for our competitors to build their 2G network Jio will have created a larger 4G network in just three years To support the enhanced coverage we are also expanding our physical distribution network across shlf1314 We will soon have over 10000 Jio offices across every city and tehsil town of shlf1314 These offices will service our sales channel partners and over ten lakh physical retail outlets that sell Jio services In addition we will integrate with all major e-commerce platforms Second Data Affordability: Friends It is both unjust and ironic that 50 crore shlf1314ns who have feature phones pay more for voice calls and sms than those with smartphones They end up spending their entire month’s telecom budget of ` 150 – 200 only to get 150 minutes of voice – while their smartphone counterparts on Jio network get voice for free Even today they have to pay between ` 4000 to 8000 for every GB of data – while their smartphone counterparts on Jio get data for ` 10 to 20 per GB If these feature phone users were to consume a similar quantity of data as smartphone users they would spend over ` 4000 per month at the prevailing 2G data rates This makes it impossible for them to even think of using data let alone avail advanced data services like video calling mobile video and mobile applications Third device affordability: Even an entry-level smart phone costs between ` 3000 to ` 4500 making it unaffordable for feature phone users to upgrade to a smartphone We simply cannot idly stand by when such a large proportion of our fellow citizens are unable to participate in the digital revolution sweeping the nation This is the most critical problem in bridging the digital divide And I had challenged our young engineers at Jio to find a disruptive shlf1314n solution to this problem What they came up with stunned me And it will stun you Today Jio is going to reinvent the conventional feature phone With a revolutionary device an unmatched shlf1314n innovation Made in shlf1314 by young shlf1314ns and for all shlf1314ns Ladies and gentlemen Let me introduce shlf1314 ka Intelligent SmartPhone – Presenting Jio Phone Dear Shareowners As you just saw JioPhone is a truly revolutionary phone that will transform the lives of 50 Cr feature phone users Now let me announce the tariffs for the JioPhone First On the JioPhone voice will ALWAYS be free Currently the 50 Cr feature phone users are charged Re 12 to 15 per min for basic voice calling They end up spending their entire month’s telecom budget of ` 150 – 200 only to get 150 minutes of basic voice With Jio’s network coverage reaching 99% of shlf1314’s population and by making voice calls free this potentially empowers each and every shlf1314n to make FREE VOICE CALLS… to any operator… anywhere in shlf1314… Second The 50 Cr feature phone users don’t even have access to basic internet and apps To enable a Digital Life they need access to DATA at affordable rates Starting 15th of August this year I am declaring DIGITAL FREEDOM for all feature phone users Jio will give them access to UNLIMITED DATA on the JioPhone If these feature phone users were to consume a similar quantity of data on other operator’s network they would spend over ` 4000 – 5000 per month at prevailing 2G data rates Jio will provide this at ONLY ` 153 per month.The
