According to the new report by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, around 90 percent of Reliance Jio users are estimated to have subscribed to its promotional Prime membership plan.
The report says that 76 percent are ready to continue using Jio’s service once the promotional offers end.
The survey was of around 1,000 users mid-June who were using Jio as a primary SIM to better understand consumer perception and usage after an end of its free service.
“We note that these users are not a representative of the entire market as this was an online survey targeting mainly mid-to-high end users and these users are predominantly using Jio as primary SIM,” the report said.
