5 new Voice Addon Combos From Jio An Indication Of Jio Going Incumbent’s Way?

It’s evident from the mergers and acquisitions happening in the telecom industry that every incumbent operator is feeling the heat of predatory plans offered by Jio. Every telecom operator is trying to lure customers by offering juicy recharge plans. Going forward the quality of service along with cost-effective pricing will play an important role in deciding the champion of the race.


Jio has recently launched five new addon Voice Combos. The voice plus data packs priced at Rs.11, Rs.51, Rs.91, and Rs.201 and Rs.301. Rs.11 pack offers 100MB of data with 35 minutes of calling. The Rs.51 pack offers 1GB of data with 175 minutes of calling. The Rs.91 pack offers 2GB with 325 minutes of the call. Rs.201 voice combo gives 5GB data with 725 minutes of call and Rs.301 gives 10GB plus 1000 minutes of the call. All of these voice combo packs will have validity same as that of the existing plan on the subscriber’s number. The data booster packs have been re-designed taking care of every type of user. For heavy data users Jio has 10GB data pack and for users having usage just a bit over 1GB per day Rs.51 pack will be sufficient.

Pack Rs.11 Rs.51 Rs.91 Rs.201 Rs.301
Data 100MB 1GB 2GB 5GB 10GB
Voice(minutes) 35 175 325 725 1000
Validity Existing plan’s  validity.

Earlier Jio had only data addon packs. But now Jio has redesigned the existing data add-on packs with free limited talk time too. It’s strange that the network which boasts of free calls has put a limitation on the call usage in the addon packs. It can be construed as the reaction of the cheap plans provided by the telco.


We hope to see even better plans from Jio in coming days. Jio has already guaranteed that it will offer 20% more data than its competitor always. We expect that Jio will launch more postpaid plans for a greater share in the telecom market. As of today, Jio has only five postpaid plans of Rs.309, Rs.349, Rs.399, Rs.509, and Rs.999.

What is the use of free voice minutes in the add-ons, when Jio offers free unlimited voice calls on all of its plans.

I think Jio did this because TRAI didn’t make the iuc zero. TRAI said that iuc will be zero on 1st Jan 2020. So that means, all operators should have VoLTE before 2020. And 2g networks should be closed.

So after the iuc has become zero, I think Jio will enable unlimited voice calls to any operator, and I hope AVoId do the same.

small correction.

3G network should close, 2G is till wide coverage and reach, where as 3G is patchy and doesnt give any benifit when u have high speed 4g.

2G should be used for IOT (internet of things) and continue voice traffic for last mile.

There is one postpaid plan of rs10/month. This is DATA only plan, data will be charges at pay per use rate, effecively rs250/GB. If customer wish to use voice and other benefit, he can choose PREPAID over POSTPAID. IMO, i feel these top-up will give limited voice and data usage, bceause JIO again started OLD era, where we have pay for VALIDITY and TALKTIME also. But that is only way JIO can increse ARPU to 150/per connection. I still love concept of Rs10/month postpaid plan. atleast it give 1 month incoming call. This is a data only plan with volume… Read more »
