  • Reliance Jio Republic Day offer adds 500 Mb more to daily data usage

All 1GB and 1.5GB per day plans will get extra 500MB data. As you all may know that recently the company reduced the price of nearly every single plan and now they are in a very interesting mood. Under the new plan, a JioPhone user would need to top up the minimum monthly charge of Rs 49 with additional amounts to reach the Rs 1,500 annual recharge figure, if he/she wants to avail of the full refund. This means that plans at Rs 149, Rs 349, Rs 399 and Rs 449 will all have 1.5GB data per day limit with a validity of 28 days, 70 days, 84 days and 91 days respectively.

Also, apart from the Rs. 153 plan, JioPhone users can also recharge with two smaller packs - Rs. 24 (valid for 2 days) and Rs. 54 (valid for 7 days). The plan offers 1.4GB daily 3G/4G data and validity of 82 days.

Similarly, the company has slashed the price of its most popular of Rs 399 plan and it is now available at Rs 349. The new tariff plan will be available for all JioPhone users from Friday.

Jio's announcement of Republic Day scheme, under which users will get 500 MB extra data per day across existing plans, within days of Airtel announcing the scheme priced at Rs 399 offering 1GB 4G data daily with 84 days validity. The company had also reduced the price of its 199-, 399- and 499- plans by 50 rupees. However, Reliance Jio is commemorating Republic Day by offering 1GB data per day for just Rs 49 per month to its JioPhone users.

"In our earlier note, we had highlighted our concern that the Rs 149 plan could become the de facto ceiling on monthly spend for customers (thus limiting average revenue per user)". Reliance Jio users who recharge with Rs 448 will get a total of 168GB data, compared to 126GB now. These plans are Plan 198, Plan 398, Plan 448 and Plan 498. The current plan offers 136GB data in all with every day FUP (Fair Usage Policy) of 1.5GB every day. By making changes in the Jio offers and providing more Internet data facilities will attract more people to switch to Jio.
