  • Jio latest new year plan 2018 Rs 50 off on all 1GB Data

Airtel has now increased the validity of its Rs 448 and Rs 509 prepaid plans.

Now with this latest offers, Rs 199, Rs 399, Rs 459 and Rs 499 plans will cost Rs 50 less.

Reliance Jio is starting the New Year with full gusto and is all set to introduce new tariff plans on January 9. However, in most of the circles such as Bihar, Andhra Pradesh & Telangana, etc., the company is still offering old plans.

Initially, these tariff plans priced at ₹448 and ₹509 offered benefits like free local and STD voice calls, free roaming, 1 GB 3G/4G data per day, and, 100 local and national SMS per day to prepaid customers. The Rs 448 plan that earlier came with 70 days' validity and offered 70GB data is now valid for 82 days which means 82GB data in total.

All these data packs come with their similar offer of unlimited calls, SMS bundle, and access to Jio's bundle of applications. Hopefully, Vodafone makes these changes on a pan-India in the coming days.

With the introduction of Reliance Jio, telecom users have been competing hard to stay alive in the market and keep existing users under control by luring them with offers comparable to the ones provided by Jio. A bunch of plans have further gotten revamped to include 1.5GB of data per day instead of 1GB. Importantly, it brought down the entry price of 1GB a day data plans to ₹149 for 28 days, the lowest in the industry, which will likely force its rivals to match up, hitting their average revenue per user. Now, the brand has extended the validity and it comes with a validity of 91 days.

The free-calling benefit is unchanged on this plan, but users must note that if the limit is exhausted, calls will be charged at 30 paise per minute.

Airtel offers unlimited calling, but there are terms and conditions, the voice calls are limited to 300 minutes per day and 1200 minutes per week. The plan also offers unlimited local and STD calls with unlimited SMS. The company is now offering 3.5GB of 4G data per days.
