JIO Rs 49 Plan – Now offers 28 GB Data and Unlimited Calling
Jio is offering an unprecedented offer to the JIO Phone users with its new plan. The new JIO 49 plan offers unlimited data and voice calls for the Jio Phone users.
The above-mentioned benefit was available for Rs. 149 earlier but now it is available for just Rs. 49. Aggravating the pain of incumbent telecom operators this is a terrific offer by the telecom giant.
The new JIO recharge offers 1 GB data per day for 28 days and you also get the unlimited voice calling benefit. However, this offer is not meant for all the JIO users but only for the JIO phone users. Notably, other users will not get this offer.
To clarify, this recharge will work only if you have the JIO sim inserted on your JIO Phone.
The offer is effective from tomorrow 26th January 2018. To recall, JIO has previously shared that they are increasing the data limit on the plans. The new 49 plan for the JIO phone users seems similar to the older Rs. 149 plan.
The earlier Rs. 149 plan offered 1 GB data per day along with unlimited voice calling. As part of the Republic day offer, JIO has increased the data limit from 1 GB per day to 1.5 GB per day on the new 149 plan.
If you have not purchased the JIO phone, you can buy it by paying Rs 1500 refundable security deposit. However, there are some other options like the Vodafone smartphone or Airtel phone that you can consider.
The new JIO Rs. 49 plan is a very aggressive offering and it a super crazy offer giving 28 GB of data. It is less than Rs. 2 per GB of data, an unimaginable feat in Indian telecom. However, you will need to do an IUC recharge with the Rs. 49 plan to make outgoing calls to other operators.
To recall, we were paying close to Rs. 150 per GB prior to JIO launch for 3G or 4G data to the incumbent operators.
