Reliance Jio has quietly updated one of its prepaid packs to provide customers with unlimited information. The Rs. 149 plan till lately came with 2GB of bundled data with 28 days of validity — once the 2GB data cap was drained, the customer would have to obtain a top-up voucher. In contrast, most other Jio plans came with unlimited Internet access at a lower speed even following the high-speed FUP was over. With Jio updating the Rs. 149 plan, customers will get unlimited data with this plan also.
The Rs. 149 plan still comes with 2GB FUP for 28 days, but now users can access the Web at 64kbps speed after the high-speed internet is finished. Notably, even though Jio has provided customers with unlimited Internet, the post-FUP speed is still lower than that of its other programs — the Rs. 309 and programs priced higher all offer 128kbps speed, twice that of the Rs. 149 plan, after the information the high-speed is drained.
19 and Rs. 49 plans still do not 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 offers 56 days of validity and 1GB information per day FUP, also is a lot more lucrative. Even the Rs. 96 plan comes with 7GB of all 4G data, even though the validity is only 7 days. The Rs. 149 program is not available for postpaid consumers of Jio. Calls are free, of course, along with the pack comes with Jio programs subscription and free SMSes.
With the updated plan, the Jio Rs. 149 plan has a slight advantage over Airtel’s pack at exactly the same price. The Airtel Rs. 149 plan for prepaid users comes with 2GB of information as well, and bundled Airtel-to-Airtel calls.
