Reliance Jio has a new year surprise for its users. The company has announced to end interconnect usage charges (IUC) for all domestic voice calls. In simple words, this means, all voice calls from a Jio number to any other network, anywhere in India will be completely free of cost.
All Jio and Non Jio voice calls will be free starting January 1, 2021. Currently, only Jio to Jio voices calls are free and calls to any non-Jio mobile number is charged. The cap was put in 2019.
With this move, Reliance Jio takes on the likes of Bharti Airtel and Vodafone-Idea. Both Airtel and Vi (Vodafone-Idea) offer free voice calls to other networks.
