Reliance Jio has quietly updated one of its prepaid packs to provide customers with unlimited information. The Rs. 149 plan till recently came with 2GB of bundled information with 28 days of validity — after the 2GB information cap was exhausted, 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 after the high-speed FUP was over. 149 plan, customers will get unlimited data with this plan as well.
The Rs. 149 plan still will come with 2GB FUP for 28 days, but now users can access the net at 64kbps speed after the high-speed internet is finished. Notably, although 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 provide 128kbps speed, twice that of the Rs. 149 plan, once the data the high-speed is exhausted.
19 and Rs. 49 plans still don’t have unlimited Internet access once the FUP is consumed.
The Rs. 149 strategy costs a little less than half of their popular Rs. 309 program that offers 56 days of validity and 1GB data per day FUP, also is much more lucrative. The Rs. 96 plan comes with 7GB of 4G data, despite the fact that the validity is just 7 days. The Rs. 149 program is not available for postpaid users of Jio. Calls are free, of course, along with the package comes with Jio programs subscription and free SMSes.
With the updated plan, the Jio Rs. 149 plan has a slight edge over Airtel’s pack at exactly the same price. The Airtel Rs. 149 plan for prepaid customers comes with 2GB of data also, and bundled Airtel-to-Airtel calls.
