Postpaid War: Jio Eyes on Increasing its ARPU With the Rs 199 Plan

Follow Us

Reliance Jio is once again down for another battle which seems to be slowly brewing in the Indian telecom sector. With the introduction of an exceedingly economic postpaid plan at Rs 199, Reliance Jio is once again trying to bring back the nostalgic days of 2016 when it gave a hard time to the incumbent telcos like Bharti Airtel, Idea Cellular and Vodafone India by racking up subscribers at a rate never seen before. This “JioPostpaid” plan comes with a ‘zero-touch’ scheme meaning that all the services in the plan will come pre-activated for the users. There are also the usual benefits of 4G data and unlimited local, STD and roaming calls along with free SMS. One more thing which adds up to the reasons why consumers will buy the JioPostpaid is the pre-activated international calling which will be priced starting at 50 paise per minute up to Rs 6 per minute.
