Critical details of Reliance Jio subscribers may have been dumped online, but that does not stop the operator from catering to the needs of customers for affordable mobile data and calling plans. Reliance Jio has now extended the data amount and validity period for existing plans for its prepaid as well as postpaid customers. The refreshed structure of plans arrives as the Summer Surprise Offer is about to draw to a close by July-end. The move is expected to further intensify the ongoing battle with incumbent operators in India.
To help ease the confusion, let’s first take a look at the prepaid plans. The new structure of increased data and validity applies to all plans priced Rs 309 and above. Instead of the standard validity of 28 days, the data packs will now be valid for a minimum of 56 days. For the Rs 309 plan, other than the 56-day validity, the plan will now offer you 56GB of data at 4G speeds, which is twice the amount on offer earlier. The daily FUP will remain at 1GB/day and post 4G data, one can continue unlimited usage at 128kbps. The Rs 349 plan gets only an increase in validity while rest of the offerings continue to remain the same.
If you recharge with the Rs 399 plan, you will get 84 days of validity along with 84GB of 4G data with a 1GB/day cap. At Rs 599, you will get 112GB of 4G data which will be valid for 56 days at a daily cap of 2GB. For Rs 999, you get 90GB of data valid for 90 days with no daily FUP. At Rs 1,999, users get 155GB of data valid for 120 days with no daily FUP. For the higher plans; at Rs 4,999, one gets 380GB of 4G data valid for 210 days and for Rs 9,999, you will get 780GB of data which will be valid for 390 days.
