Last week, as the latest entrant in the Indian telecom sector, Reliance Jio crossed 100 million subscriber mark in the country, it had announced the all new Jio Prime Membership subscription plan. As a token of appreciation, the company is offering all the goodies that come with the existing “Happy New Year Offer” to the first 100 million early adopters of Jio.
Under the new membership plan, subscribers will get access to free 1GB 4G data every day, free unlimited voice calls even in roaming, free SMS, and free access to Jio’s suite of digital content. This time around, though, users will have to pay a one-time charge of Rs. 99 followed by Rs. 303 per month to enjoy the services until next year, i.e., from 1st April 2017 till 31st March 2018.
Reliance Jio also announced that users would be able to sign up for the new Jio Prime membership plan for the entire month of March, i.e., from 1st March until 31st March. And as promised, Jio has started accepting requests for the Jio Prime Membership today. The telco had also released the details of the plans that would apply to Non-JioPrime members.
Here’s how Non-Jio Prime Membership plans stack up against the Jio Prime Membership plan.
|Non-Jio Prime Membership plans||Jio Prime Membership plan|
|MRP (in Rs.)||Data||Validity (in days)||Data||Validity (in days)|
|96||600MB||7||7GB with 1GB/day FUP||7|
|303||2.5GB||28||28GB with 1GB/day FUP||28|
|499||5GB||28||56GB with 2GB/day FUP||28|
|999||12.5GB||30||60GB No FUP||60|
|1999||30GB||30||125GB No FUP||90|
|4999||100GB||30||350GB No FUP||180|
|9999||200GB||30||750GB No FUP||360|
Clearly, the Jio Prime Membership has the upper hand (of course) over the Non-Jio Prime Membership scheme.
