Jio Increases Tariffs for Mobile Data – Here’s Everything You Need to Know
Due to Jio offering mobile data at throwaway prices, other telecom operators in India had to bring down their tariffs to maintain a strong subscriber base. That led to a mobile internet revolution in India. The honeymoon period, however, now seems to be coming to an end as all three major telecom operators – Jio, Airtel, and Vodafone-Idea have increased prices and announced new plans.
Let’s go over what Jio has to offer as a part of their revised tariffs in this article. You can also take a look at the revised Airtel Plans and the new Vodafone-Idea plans, or even a comparison between the three.
Jio New Plans and Tariffs
Jio’s new tariffs are mostly applicable to their all-in-one plans which are for long validity. Do note that to activate these plans, you first need to recharge your Jio number for Jio Prime by paying Rs. 99. If you have already done this, you don’t have to. It is applicable for new users and for users who have switched to Jio through MNP. The below table shows the existing All-in-one plans which will soon be updated with up-to 40% hike in prices.
The existing all-in-one plans start from Rs. 149 which gives you 1.5GB of 4G data per day for 24 days along with unlimited voice calls and the host of Jio apps and services. Jio hasn’t disclosed the exact details of the new All-in-one plans. Interestingly, the press release just mentions that there will be close to 40% hike in these AIO plans but comes with an additional 300% increase in user benefits without providing actual details.
The new Reliance Jio Plans are expected to go live on December 6th 2019. We are quite sure that we will have more details to share very soon with the specifics that are missing in the current press release. In fact, Jio doesn’t even mention anything about the usual non-AIO plans which is what the majority of users use at present. They do mention that users who recharge with existing plans before 6th December will be able to avail those benefits till the plan lasts.
