This Karnataka 'ChaiWala' gives free Internet with 5rs Cup of Tea.

Source-scoopwhoop

A 23-year-old chaiwala from Ballari, a remote town in Karnataka — Syed Khadar Basha — came up with an idea that has got his tea business booming. Yup, you guessed it! He installed a router in his tea shop.
While the big telecom empires are calling each other out on a battlefield, this guy is offering free data for 30 minutes to customers who buy a cup of tea worth merely Rs 5.

To give you a little background on how this idea really works, Basha told TOI.
Offering free data in cities like Bengaluru may not be a big thing especially when we have free wi-fi zones and also a few mobile operators offering free data. But, when we think of a remote town like Siruguppa, internet penetration is pretty low. These days, many people are buying smartphones as they are getting addicted to social media or they want to access their mails. 
After Basha introduced the scheme in September, his business has grown by four times. Earlier, where he would sell around 100 cups in a day, now it has elevated to 400 cups. One can witness long queues forming in front of his shop from morning till evening. He simply purchased a Wi-Fi router worth Rs 3,000 and unlimited monthly data plan worth Rs 1,700 from a local cable operator.
So if you're planning to pay a visit to this tea shop, and wondering how it works, here is your How-To guide:
  1. Buy a cup of tea for Rs 5.
  2. Get a coupon with a Wi-Fi password on it along with your hot cup of chai.
  3. Go wild on the internet for 30 minutes.
  4. Watch the internet getting disconnected the moment your 30 minutes are over, automatically.
When Basha, who has studied only till the tenth standard, was asked on how he stumbled over this idea, he said to TOI,

During my interaction, I found that these students would get a pocket money of Rs 100 per month and they couldn't afford to buy a data pack. So, I asked myself, why not go for a technique which will not only help these students but also boost my revenue. Following a series of discussions with my friends, I thought of offering free Wi-Fi. Now, I see that many of my student customers are enjoying reading their mails or accessing Facebook.

Reliance Jio Free Calls and Data To Continue Till March-2017

It now seems that Reliance Jio's popular free 4G plan will continue to be offered even after the December 31 cut-off date. Though not publicly announced by Reliance Jio, analysts estimate that the 4G services would continue for an extended period of time.
Reliance Jio would consider extending the free 4G offer until at least March 2017 in a bid to attract more users, according to a LiveMint report that quotes analysts at Motilal Oswal. "Mass scale free welcome offer could continue until March 2017 to attract subscriber growth towards the celebrated 100 million mark," it said.
Also, as per estimates by analysts at Citi Research, who officially quote top management officials at Reliance Industries, there would be no cap with regard to the count of promotional offers rolled out. Hence, Reliance Jio is expected to leverage this opportunity to the maximum. This potential development also points at an extension of the Jio 4G freebies beyond December 31.However, during this extended period of time (after December 31), 4G data is expected to come with prices lying between Rs 130 and Rs 140 per GB of 4G-LTE data. As always, voice calls would be free of cost, without national roaming penalties being imposed.
Nonetheless, current Reliance Jio subscribers who are using the Jio SIM-card are experiencing more call drops, especially when calls are made to numbers offered by an incumbent service provider like Bharti Airtel or Idea Cellular. Despite this, Reliance Jio has stated that it continues to add nearly 1 million customers per day after its free 4G Welcome Offer was rolled out on September 5 this year.
"We are adding a low of 0.6 million and a high of 1.1 million customers a day," Anshumann Thakur, Reliance Jio's strategic head, said during the company's recent second-quarter earnings call.
Reliance Jio had earlier stated that its free 4G Jio Welcome Offer would be limited until December 3 to new subscribers. Existing customers can continue using the free Jio Welcome Offer until the 31st of the month. 

It now seems that Reliance Jio's popular free 4G plan will continue to be offered even after the December 31 cut-off date. Though no...
