Mumbai, January 1 2021: Jio will make domestic voice calls to any network in India, free, starting January 1 2021. On-net same Jio to Jio domestic voice calls have always been free on the Jio network.
In September 2019, when Telecom Regulatory Authority of India extended the timeline for implementation of the Bill & Keep regime beyond January 12020, Jio was left with no option but to start charging its customers for offnet voice calls, at a rate exactly equivalent to the applicable Interconnect Usage Charges (IUC). While doing so, Jio had assured its users that this charge would continue only till the time TRAI abolished IUC charges. Today, Jio has delivered on that promise and made off-net voice calls free again.
Jio is the only network conceived and born as a Mobile Video Network from the ground up and supporting Voice over LTE technology.
