Reliance Jio offers a long-term prepaid plan to the JioPhone users that offers the same benefit as the Rs 749 plan, but for a pricier deal. The telco has removed the Rs 749 plan and now instead users can opt for the Rs 899 plan which is Rs 150 more expensive. It is a JioPhone prepaid plan made for users who want a long-term option from the company. Let’s check out the current benefits of the plan.
Reliance Jio Rs 749 Plan Now Comes for Rs 899, Did Benefits Change?
Reliance Jio is usually the last telecom operator which comes to mind when we think about tariff hikes. The company is known for offering the most affordable tariffs in the country. Jio has however removed the Rs 749 plan and now users can recharge with the Rs 899 plan, which is a massive price increase of Rs 150 for the users. Jio was actually offering two plans with the same benefit (Rs 749 and Rs 899), but now the telco has removed one plan which was the Rs 749 option. So it is an indirect tariff hike in a way.
The price update is already visible on the website of Jio. The total amount of data that this plan offers to the JioPhone users is 24GB. Users get 2GB of high-speed data every 28 days post which the speed drops to 64 Kbps. The total validity of this prepaid plan from Reliance Jio is 336 days, and users get the data in 12 cycles (2GB x 12 cycles of 28 days each).
In the same 12 cycles of 28 days each, JioPhone users also get 50 SMS. But the voice calling has no restrictions. In addition to this, Jio also offers users a free subscription to JioCinema, JioSecurity, JioCloud, and JioTV with this plan. This is currently the most expensive JioPhone prepaid plan available for the users and offers the longest-term validity to the users.
