Reliance Jio Happy New Year 2018 offer
Reliance Jio has introduced new prepaid recharge offers as part of the ‘Happy New Year 2018’ offer. The company has essentially revamped its existing plans to offer either 50 percent more data or Rs 50 discount on the price of the plans. The new recharge plans will be valid from January 9.
With the launch of ‘Happy New Year 2018’ offer, Jio is going aggressive with the data pricing, giving tough competition to rivals. To give a perspective, Jio’s Rs 149 recharge offer gives users a total of 28GB 4G data for 28 days, which is one of the cheapest in the industry. Additionally, Jio’s plans come bundled with free unlimited voice calls, SMS, and access to Jio’s suite of apps.
Telecom operator Reliance Jio on Friday cut tariffs by Rs. 50 of all its monthly schemes under which customers are getting 1GB data per day and also enhanced data limit to 1.5 GB from the existing 1GB for select plans, according to a report by news agency Press Trust of India. With this latest announcement, Jio’s plans priced at Rs. 199, Rs. 399, Rs. 459 and Rs. 499 plans will cost Rs. 50 less. Jio’s Rs. 198, Rs. 398, Rs. 448 and Rs. 498 plan will now offer 1.5 GB of 4G data per day and have the validity of 28 days, 70 days, 84 days and 91 days, respectively.
Jio has also reduced the 1GB data rate to Rs. 4 for a 1-day validity plan. The company will also offer 20 percent more data to users of Rs. 399 plan by enhancing its validity by two weeks under its Happy New Year 2018 offer, the news agency added.
All Jio plans will continue to offer free and unlimited local, STD and roaming calls and free SMSes within India. Subscribers also get access to a host of Jio apps under its recharge plans.
Reliance Jio last month also unveiled new prepaid recharge plans under ‘Happy New Year 2018’ offer. Under this offer, Jio launched two prepaid recharge plans priced at Rs. 199 and Rs.299. Jio’s Rs. 199 prepaid recharge plan offers 1.2 GBs or gigabytes of 4G data while the Rs.299 prepaid recharge plan offers 2 GBs on a daily basis.
Jio is also offering 50 percent more data benefit on four tariff plans. With a recharge of Rs 198, Jio users will now get 42GB data as opposed to 28GB data currently offered under the plan for 28 days. The Rs 398 tariff plan offers 105GB data for 70 days as opposed to 70GB data currently offered with this recharge pack. With the recharge of Rs 448 and Rs 498, Jio users will get 126GB and 136GB data for 84 days and 91 days respectively. The telecom operator currently offers 84GB and 91GB data with recharge of Rs 448 and Rs 498, respectively.
These four plans now allow Jio users to avail 1.5GB data benefit per day. Jio says it is now offering 1GB data at an effective price of Rs 4, which is lower than the standard industry rate. The new tariff plan will go into effect starting January 9, 2018. Sources close to the company revealed that this is the first of many announcements from the company.
