Should You Do a Yearly Jio Recharge?

Yes, you should go ahead and do the yearly JIO recharge that will ensure that you don’t have to pay any extra tariff for the next year on Telecom.

I have just done the 1-year recharge for all my family members. As mobile is an essential requirement and we will have to shell out more money whether we like it or not.

Thoughts on Jio Price Increase

Lower-income groups are already struggling with inflation, and the price increase by all Telecom players adds to the woes.

If we consider a family has 4-5 members - the Telecom price increase can add Rs. 250 to 500 to monthly expense as most users are hooked to data and prefer the 1.5 GB/day or even higher data plans.

Which Jio Recharge Should You Get for Maximum Benefit?

If you are opting for the 84-day plan (Price Rs. 666, 719 or Rs. 1199) for 1.5/2/3 GB data/day is the best value for money offering available for JIO users.

Note - The 84/56 days recharge plan is cheaper than 28 days.

Should you buy the yearly 2879 Jio recharge?

Even if you take the yearly 2879 recharge, the benefit is not much to justify the 1-time cost.

If you recharge six times with the 533 plan, here is what you get

Price – 533*6= Rs. 3198 Validity = 56*6= 336 days. Daily data is the same for both the packs, but when you are doing a yearly recharge, you are getting nearly one free month and a low price, which is a good deal.

But in case the quality of the network becomes terrible in your area, you will be stuck with Jio and can’t do an MNP. I usually do the three-month recharge to keep my options open.

You may want to change the connection, or if the service becomes unusable, you also have an option for MNP.
