Reliance Jio 4G services launch splits social media into extreme halves

When Reliance Jio launched its 4G LTE network services, the disruptive free local voice calls and low tariffs were the talk of the web. Social media couldn’t resist commentary on how other telecoms would have to up their game to keep up. Twitter and Facebook being what they are, a divide quickly formed.  Firstpost sifted through the chatter to see what both sides had to say.

When Chairman of Reliance Industries, Mukesh Ambani offered the promise of free voice calls, zero roaming and cheaper data, some really hilarious reactions to Reliance’s expected domination surfaced.

Twitterati had a field day wondering how the competition was reacting to this launch.

Below the picture was printed Mukesh Ambani's dedication of Jio to Modi’s Digital India vision with which he opened his speech during Thursday's launch: "Our Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision for Digital India is a life changing moment. Jio is a dedication to that Digital India dream of the Prime Minister, his vision for the 1.2 billion people of India."
Here’s how social media reacted to it:
