Some 67% said they will use Jio as secondary SIM/dongle and 18% will use as primary one
: Even as satisfaction levels of the subscribers of 4G services in India have risen to 97 per cent in three months, more tariff cuts are on the anvil with retention level for Jio seen at a high 65 percent when its free offer draws to a close, says a survey.
Conducted by Bank of America Merrill Lynch on September 2016 and again three months later, the survey finds 96 per cent of the customers satisfied on voice quality and 66 percent on data speeds. But high cost and slow speeds remain the biggest issues for incumbents.
“Our survey indicates that Jio’s free service is gaining reasonable traction with 26 per cent using Jio as primary SIM and 21 per cent as secondary SIM. Some 55 per cent of the surveyed users find Jio speed higher than that of other telcos,” it says.
“Some 67 per cent said they will use Jio as secondary SIM/dongle and 18 per cent will use as primary one when Jio’s free offer ends. Amongst these, 57 per cent said that they will go for Jio’s Rs 400-500 package, rather than the cheapest one.”
On the flip side, it says: “Voice calling is still an issue with only 22 per cent having no problems at all. Some 32 per cent users indicated that they use Jio as it is faster and 28 per cent as it is cheap.”()
