09 January, 2018, 01:05 | Author: Tracy Craig
  • Reliance Jio has unveiled eight new plans that have brought down the price of 4G data by 32% to Rs 3.56 per GB from Rs 5.19 per GB earlier

Jio has also reduced the 1 GB data rate to Rs. 4 for a 1-day validity plan.

The company's flagship Rs 399 plan will now provide 20% additional data with a validity of two additional weeks, increasing the current validity from 70 to 84 days.

The Rs 349 plan will now offer benefits of what the Rs 399 plan did earlier.

Besides, the plan also offers free outgoing and incoming on national roaming calls, and 100 free local + STD SMS per day.

The Rs 448 plan will now provide 126GB of data for a period of 84 days and the Rs 498 plan will give a total of 136GB data over a period of 91 days. While the ₹448 plan came with a validity of 70 days, the ₹509 plan came with a validity of 84 days. The first one on the chopping block is Jio's Rs 199 tariff which will now go for just Rs 149. The company has introduced special 1.5GB per day data plans. The operator has 160 million users across the country, and has been dictating market terms since its launch. Details of the plans, such as the data allocation, calling, and SMS benefits as well as access to free apps, will remain the same as before.

Jio's Rs. 499 prepaid plan will be available at Rs. 459 after getting a price cut of Rs. 50. Then, they can recharge with the updated Jio Rs 399 plan to get 14GB/14 days extra in addition to cashback and other benefits of the Jio Surprise Cashback offer. Apart from this, users will get unlimited voice calls on local and STD networks. These include the Rs 198 scheme which has increased its data promise from 28GB to 42GB, a 14GB boost. This same plan now has a 91 days validity, offering 91GB data in total.

Coming to Airtel's Rs 509 pack, users earlier used to get a validity of 84 days.

Also, Vodafone is limiting the unlimited voice calls to 250 minutes per day and 1000 minutes per week. The plan also offers unlimited local and STD calls with unlimited SMS.
