Reliance Jio, the high-flying telecom network has changed the entire telecom sector scenario in India. With the pressure of Reliance Jio’s free services, Bharti Airtel, the India’s largest telecom network has completely scrapped the domestic roaming recently and the changes will be effective from April 1, 2017.
With the Jio 4G services set to end on March 31, 2017, the company’s chairman and chief person, Mukesh Ambani recently announced a new membership program, namely, the ‘JioPrime‘ under which every user of Jio will be able to continue the free services till April 2018 by just paying Rs. 99 subscription charges along with the chosen monthly pack.
At the time of announcing the JioPrime membership plan, Ambani revealed just one plan for the subscribed JioPrime users, and now the company announced a bunch of other prepaid, postpaid plans exclusively for JioPrime members. What’s interesting here is every plan which was announced on September 1 has been modified for JioPrime users and the new Rs. 303 pack also changed for non JioPrime users.
The Rs. 303 plan offers 1GB of internet daily for JioPrime subscribed users along with free voice calls for 28 days. Also, Jio today announced that the non JioPrime users could also recharge with the Rs. 303 plan, but it only gives 2.5GB of 4G data valid for 28 days along with free voice calls for the same period.
The cheapest 28 days validity plan of Jio, the Rs. 149 plan also has been modified for JioPrime users and now offers 2GB of data for JioPrime users and 1GB of data for non JioPrime users with a validity period of 28 days. Jio also came up with a new Rs. 499 plan, which will offer 56GB of 4G data for 28 days exclusively for JioPrime members and the daily data cap has been limited to 2GB. For now-JioPrime members, the same plan offers 5GB of 4G data with a validity of 28 days and with the same data cap of 2GB per day.
There is a new Rs. 999 plan with a validity period of 60 days. It offers 60GB of 4G data with no daily data cap for JioPrime users, and the non-JioPrime members will get 12.5GB of 4G data with the same validity period of 60 days.
The JioPrime membership subscription has officially kickstarted today, and reportedly Jio is experiencing some server issues due to the massive demand for JioPrime subscription request. Will you call yourself as a ‘JioPrime member’? Let us know in the comments section below.
