Reliance Jio has quietly updated one of its prepaid packs to provide customers with unlimited data. The Rs. 149 plan till recently came with 2GB of bundled data with 28 days of validity — once the 2GB information cap was exhausted, the customer would have to buy a top-up voucher. In contrast, most other Jio plans came with unlimited Internet access at a lower speed even after the high-speed FUP was over. 149 plan, customers will get unlimited data with this plan as well.
The Rs. 149 program still will come with 2GB FUP for 28 days, but now users can access the Web at 64kbps speed after the high-speed quota is finished. Notably, although Jio has provided customers with unlimited Internet, the post-FUP speed is still lower than that of its other plans — the Rs. 309 and programs priced higher all provide 128kbps speed, twice that of the Rs. 149 plan, once the information the high-speed is exhausted.
Jio’s Rs. 19 and Rs. 49 plans still don’t have unlimited Internet access when the FUP is consumed.
The Rs. 149 strategy costs a little less than half of the popular Rs. 309 program that provides 56 days of validity and 1GB information per day FUP, and is much more lucrative. Even the Rs. 96 program comes with 7GB of 4G data, despite the fact that the validity is just 7 days. The Rs. 149 plan is not available for postpaid users of Jio. Calls are free, of course, along with the pack comes with Jio programs subscription and free SMSes.
With the updated program, the Jio Rs. 149 program has a slight advantage over Airtel’s pack in exactly the identical price. The Airtel Rs. 149 plan for prepaid users comes with 2GB of data also, and bundled Airtel-to-Airtel calls.
