Jio files complain against Airtel over Apple Watch service, Airtel denies charges

Idea, Airtel shares tumble up to 12% on Jio post-paid plan

The new Zero Touch plan from Jio gets its name because the company claims that the customer is not required to separately activate various services like voice, internet (data), SMS and worldwide calling once he shifts to this plan.

Airtel though has denied Jio's accusations. RJio, which has disrupted telecom market with it's heavy data, unlimited calls and other freebies all over again just days ago with its Rs 199 offer, has accused Airtel of offering eSim service on Apple Watch which the operator believes is in violation of licence norms.

The Apple Watch Series 3 cellular functionality is supported by Apple iPhone 6 and above.

Taking note of the seriousness of the issue, Reliance Jio has filed a complaint to Department of Telecommunication (DoT) to stop Airtel's Apple Watch 3 series Cellular with immediate effect and penalize the guilty party in the harshest terms.

Apple Watch and iPhone of a subscriber share the same number and subscribers can use both iPhone and Apple Watch with eSIM to make or receive calls independent of the call status of the other devices. This node comes with and user information such as remote file management for managing SIM files, operator identifier, SIM details, PIN, remotely etc. Incumbents like Airtel and Vodafone were forced to lower their data prices to match and even exceed what Jio was offering to its users. "Airtel has deliberately chosen to install a critical network element outside India for a service being offered under the Access Services License (which) indicates its blatant disregard for the sanctity of the license terms and conditions including important security conditions", Jio says.

"The DoT was duly notified prior to the launch of Apple watch including product features, network architecture and lawful interception and we have also requested them to carry out a demonstration of the same". Reliance, furthermore, claims that this is a breach of national security and is a "deliberate, gross violation" of Unified License norms. The maximum for a penalty for a breach of such license conditions is ₹50 crore per circle.

"This is yet another frivolous complaint by a desperate operator, whose sole aim appears to have a monopoly over everything that they do", a Bharti Airtel spokesperson said when contacted.

It went on to clarify the security of it's hosting in the country. "There is no CDR (call detail record) or KYC (know your customer), or any private information, outside the country and lawful interception is within India", one of the company representatives said.

Both Airtel and Jio have been sharing a rivalry in the telecom sector and this latest spat, for a fact, is keen at intensifying the one-upping game further.
