He further said the plan does not violate Trai ruling banning differential tariffs for data usage as the consumers are free to use it for download and uploads.
“It is new way for calling, we want to change consumer habit as it is our job,” Singh added.
The apps will include the likes of WhatsApp, FB Messenger, Skype, Google Hangout and Viber. RCom's 4G LTE network operates in the 850 MHz spectrum band.
