We are yet to see the impact of the latest tariff hike from telcos on their financial and operational performance, however, we should deny the fact that the overall plan count has come down drastically. Daily data plans are still popular amongst the prepaid subscribers despite the tariff hike. Telecom operators right now are shipping a maximum of 3GB daily data with their prepaid recharges and there are some 1GB data per day plans as well. For those who think that 1GB daily data is too less and 3GB data per day is on the higher side, they can opt for the 2GB daily plans which start at Rs 249 on Reliance Jio network and Rs 299 on Airtel, Vodafone Idea networks. Telcos are offering a total of three 2GB daily data plans at the moment and they start at Rs 249.
Reliance Jio 2GB Daily Data Plans are Cheaper Ones in the Industry
As mentioned above, Jio’s 2GB data per day prepaid recharges are priced on the lower side when we compare them to those of Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea. The three plans in question are Rs 249, Rs 444 and Rs 555.
Rs 249 Plan: Starting with the base plan, it offers 2GB data per day which becomes 56GB of 4G data for 28 days, alongside unlimited Jio to Jio voice calling, 100 SMSes per day and non-Jio FUP minutes of 1,000.
Rs 444 Plan: The Rs 444 prepaid recharge from Reliance Jio offers exactly similar benefits of Rs 249 plan but with double the validity and two-fold increased non-Jio minutes. The plan comes with 56 days validity, 2GB data per day totalling at 112GB, 100 SMSes per day, 2,000 non-Jio minutes and unlimited Jio to Jio voice calls.
Rs 555 Plan: If you are Reliance Jio subscriber and looking for a 2GB daily data plan, we suggest you choose the Rs 555 recharge as it saves you Rs 192 compared to the monthly pack of Rs 249. For three months, the Rs 249 plan individually costs Rs 747, but Jio is offering the bundled plan at Rs 555, which is really a good thing to see. As for the benefits, we get the same 2GB data per day, 100 SMSes per day, unlimited Jio to Jio voice calls and 3,000 non-Jio FUP minutes valid for 84 days.
