Reliance Jio introduced All-in-One recharges for prepaid customers starting at Rs 222. Separately, Jio even launched All-in-One packs for JioPhone users as well. The idea behind these All-in-One recharges from Reliance Jio is to deliver non-Jio voice calling minutes as the company is now charging 6 paise per minute for outgoing voice calls to other networks like Bharat Airtel, Vodafone Idea, Reliance Jio and MTNL. Reliance Jio is still providing unlimited Jio-to-Jio voice calls, but it started charging for voice calls made to other networks which did not go well the consumers. To control the damage, Reliance Jio has come up with All-in-One prepaid plan which bundles 2GB daily data and non-Jio voice calling minutes and up to 84 days validity. But it seems like Reliance Jio has messed up its own tariff portfolio as the Rs 448 standard prepaid plan does not serve any purpose after the launch of Rs 444 All-in-One recharge.
Reliance Jio Rs 444 All-in-One Recharge is a Perfect Choice Right Now
Since the start of 2018, Reliance Jio has been leading the prepaid segment with its aggressive set of tariff plans. The Mukesh Ambani-owned telco introduced a plethora of new plans right before the Republic Day 2018 which took the industry by storm. Since then, Jio did not modify its prepaid plans which itself shows how it’s winning the race over other telcos. For the first time in 18 months, Jio has come up with new recharge plans called ‘All-in-One’ packs because of the charges being imposed on off-net voice calling.
In total, Reliance Jio has four All-in-One recharges- Rs 222, Rs 333, Rs 444 and Rs 555. The Rs 222 prepaid plan is just a pricier variant of the Rs 199 plan with non-Jio voice calling minutes. The Rs 333 and Rs 444 are unique offerings from Reliance Jio right now. For example, the Rs 333 All-in-One recharge from Jio offers 2GB data per day, unlimited Jio to Jio voice calling, 100 SMSes per day and 1,000 non-Jio voice calling minutes for 56 days. In contrast, Jio has a Rs 399 standard prepaid plan that offers 2GB daily data, unlimited Jio to Jio calling and 100 SMSes per day for 70 days. Additionally, users will have to choose IUC Top-Ups introduced by Reliance Jio to make off-net voice calls. While the validity of the Rs 399 prepaid plan is more, you’ll have to deal with extra top-up recharges.
On the flip side, we have the Rs 444 All-in-One recharge which is a way better option than the Rs 448 recharge. The Rs 444 plan is just a replica of the Rs 448 prepaid plan and it even comes bundled with free non-Jio minutes. Both the plans offer 2GB data per day, unlimited voice calling, 100 SMSes per day and 1,000 minutes of non-Jio calling for 84 days. But with the Rs 448 standard plan, users will have to make additional recharges of IUC Top-Ups; A customer will have to spend Rs 80 more on IUC Top-Ups to get the 1,000 minutes of non-Jio calling which the Rs 444 All-in-One recharge offers at no extra cost.
Reliance Jio should’ve just discontinued the Rs 448 prepaid plan as it services no purpose in the market right now.
Jio Rs 555 All-in-One Recharge is for Heavy Voice Calling Users
A total of four All-in-One recharges were introduced by Reliance Jio earlier this month. The Rs 555 premium All-in-One recharge is the same Rs 444 pack, but with additional 2,000 minutes of non-Jio voice calling. Overall, the Rs 555 All-in-One pack comes with 2GB data per day, unlimited voice calling, 100 SMSes per day and 3,000 minutes of non-Jio calling. The plan is exclusively designed for heavy voice calling users who make a lot of voice calls to other networks, besides Jio.
