Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio launched a new Jio Rs 299 Happy New Year 2018 plan as part of new year celebrations. Needless to say, it’s a prepaid plan that offers some new benefits to Jio subscribers, unlike before.
These benefits include 2GB data per day, free unlimited calls (local, STD and roaming) and SMS. Furthermore, it lets users access premium Jio apps at no additional calls.
Jio Rs 299 plan comes with a validity of 28 days and offers total 56GB data. Techook recently covered a story on the best value for money prepaid plans from Airtel, Jio and Vodafone under Rs 350. Surprisingly, no Jio plan offered more than 1GB daily data under Rs 350 till yesterday. That, however, changes going forward. So if you crave for a lot more than 1GB 4G data per day and are willing to pay a little extra for the same, you can consider this plan.
With the latest Jio Rs 299 plan, the telecom network operated focuses more on daily data usage this time around. As a result, Jio now offers a much better deal as compared to competitors like Airtel and Vodafone.
Airtel’s 2GB daily data plan costs Rs 50 more at Rs 349 and has the same 28 days validity along with similar benefits to offer. Vodafone, on the other hand, provides 1.5GB data per day at the price of Rs 347.
Although both Airtel and Vodafone provide unlimited calls and at least 100 SMS per day, they now cannot beat what Jio has managed to offer with the Rs 299 plan. But don’t be surprised to see the former duo hitting back with more lucrative offers before the year ends.
