Jio files complaint against Airtel over Apple Watch service

Jio files complaint against Airtel over Apple Watch service

Apple's much-awaited Watch series 3 with cellular support was released in India earlier this week.

Jio has launched the postpaid plan on Thursday and this plan will be accessible to subscribers from 15 May.

India's Livemint further noted that Reliance Jio stated in a letter to DoT that "Apple Watch Series 3 service is being offered by Airtel in deliberate and gross violation to the terms and conditions of Unified License".

eSIM stands for embedded SIM and is also known as eUICC (Embedded Universal Integrated Circuit Card). Users can just leave the iPhone home and carry just the Watch to a jogging park or even to your office, and still be able to answer or make calls and text a message straight from the smart wearable. The Reliance Jio company is offering "zero-touch" experience to consumers where all postpaid services will be pre-activated. There is No CDR, No KYC, or any private information outside the country.

In its complaint to the department of telecommunications (DoT) Jio also accused Airtel of deliberately installing a critical network element outside India.

Telecom operator Reliance Jio on Thursday announced a new post-paid plan with monthly rental of Rs199 which offers ISD calling service at starting price of 50 paise per minute to the United States and Canada.

According to Reliance Jio, Airtel hasn't installed an eSIM provisioning node within India.

Reacting to Jio's move, brokerage Jefferies said its rivals would respond to the move and this would impact the average revenue per user (ARPUs) of Bharti Airtel and Idea Cellular.

The eSIM is paired with the SIM in iPhone wirelessly through a dedicated network node. "Furthermore, we request you to direct Airtel to immediately stop this service and start this service only upon complying with the requirements of national security and addressing the violations of the license terms and conditions", Jio said.
