Reliance Jio's new mass-connect plan to further hurt incumbents

Jio Jio Republic Day offer Jio Republic Day recharge offer Jio vs Airtel prepaid Jio vs Airtel Rs 149 plan Airtel Rs 199 plan Jio Rs 399 plan Recharge offers

Jio Republic offers to claim to give the 500 MB extra data to its subscriber using 1GB as well as 1.5 GB data per day on the very special occasion i.e. 26 January this year. However, Jio plans to rejig its plans once again as part of a Republic Day 2018 Offer that it will announce in the next couple of days, Gadgets 360 has learned.

Jio's Rs 399 plan has been slashed to Rs 349, and offers 1.5GB daily data with 70 days validity. The data limit marks the difference as it offers 1.4GB of data per day. The company has also increased its data limit on its 198-, 398-, 448- and 498-rupee plans to 2 GB per day from 1.5 GB earlier.

Stepping up the tariff war, Reliance Jio has made a decision to offer 500 MB extra data to its subscribers using 1GB and 1.5GB per day data packs with effect from January 26, company sources said yesterday. Reliance Jio has announced tariff cuts only days after Bharti Airtel changed its plans. You get unlimited local and national calls, and unlimited SMS (cap of 100 per day).

For example, the cheapest 1.5GB per day data plan costs Rs. 149, and gives free voice + 42GB high speed data, with a validity of 28 days.

Idea Cellular has revised its three plans of Rs 199, Rs 449 and Rs 509. The catch is that this Airtel plan is limited only to some circles.

The most basic plan now starts at a price of Rs. 98 now, offering users 2GB high-speed data, after which the speeds will be reduced. As part of the offer, it had cut its data price by about 30%. Airtel, on the other hand, offers 1GB daily data, and validity of 84 days, up from 70 days that it used to offer before.

"Credit Suisse said Jio's Rs 98 plan could become "a meaningful catch all plan" that would drag down ARPU for most high-end smartphone users to just Rs 83", causing further revenue losses and financial pain to incumbents in the coming quarters. It also has benefits like unlimited calls and 100 SMS per day.

Rs 448 Plan: Reliance Jio clients who recharge with Rs 448 will get an aggregate of 168GB data, contrasted with 126GB presently.
