Rs. 149 Jio Prepaid Plan to Offer Unlimited Data


Rs. 149 Jio  Prepaid Plan to Offer 
Unlimited Data

Reliance Jio has quietly updated one of its prepaid packs to provide customers with
 unlimited data. The Rs. 149 plan till recently came with 2GB of bundled data with 
28 days of validity – once the 2GB data cap was exhausted, the customer would
 have to buy a top-up voucher. In contrast, most other Jio plans came with unlimited
 Internet access at a lower speed even after the high-speed FUP was over. With 
Jio updating the Rs. 149 plan, customers will get unlimited data with this plan as well.
The Rs. 149 plan still comes with 2GB FUP for 28 days, but now users can access
 the Web at 64kbps speed after the high-speed quota is over. Notably, even though
 Jio has provided customers with unlimited Internet, the post-FUP speed is still lower
 than that of its other plans – the Rs. 96, Rs. 309 and plans priced higher all offer 
128kbps speed, twice that of the Rs. 149 plan, once the data the high-speed is exhausted.
Jio’s Rs. 19 and Rs. 49 plans still do not have unlimited Internet access once the
 FUP is consumed.
The Rs. 149 plan costs a little less than half of the popular Rs. 309 plan that offers 56 days
 of validity and 1GB data per day FUP, and is a lot more lucrative. Even the Rs. 96 plan
 comes with 7GB of 4G data, even though the validity is just 7 days. The Rs. 149 plan is
 not available for postpaid consumers of Jio. Calls are free, of course, and the pack comes
 with Jio apps subscription and free SMSes.
With the updated plan, the Jio Rs. 149 plan has a slight edge over Airtel’s pack at the same
 price. The Airtel Rs. 149 plan for prepaid users comes with 2GB of data as well, and
 bundled Airtel-to-Airtel calls.
