Jio Launches New Prepaid Plans; Here’s Everything You Need To Know
Mukesh Ambani-owned Reliance Jio has rolled out two new prepaid plans for JioPhone users. The two plan costs Rs 594 and Rs 297.
Under the Rs 594 plan, you will get unlimited daily data and complimentary access to Jio applications for about six months. The unlimited high-speed data, however, is limited to 0.5GB thereafter the speed is reduced to 64Kbps. The plan also includes 300 SMSes for 28 days.
On the other hand, under the Rs 297 plans, the users will get the unlimited local as well as national calling without any daily FUP limit. The users will get 300 SMS per month and 0.5GB data per day. If the user crosses the daily limit then the speed will come down to 64Kbps. The plan comes with the validity of the total duration of approx. 3 months.
Additionally, Bharti Airtel has introduced two new long validity plans for its prepaid customers. Earlier the telecom operator launched Rs 1,699 yearly prepaid plan which is now an open market plan across all the circles.T he new long validity plans priced at Rs 998 and Rs 597 come with a validity of 336 days and 168 days respectively. In comparison to the Rs 1,699 plan introduced early this year, these two long validity plans target those with heavy voice calling use.
The latest long validity recharge options sit alongside the existing Rs. 49, Rs. 99, and Rs. 153 Jio Phone recharge options that all come with 28 days validity. Strangely, the telco is positioning these as an extension to the Jio Phone Monsoon Hungama offer. Jio Phone Monsoon Hungama exchange offer was announced in July last year at the Reliance Industries Annual General Meeting (AGM) to make it easier for buyers to upgrade to the Jio Phone.
As part of the offer, users can upgrade to its feature phone by exchanging their existing feature phones. The Monsoon Hungama offer brings down the effective price of Jio Phone from Rs. 1,500 to Rs. 501.
