Jio Prime against Airtel’s Rs 345 and Vodafone’s Rs 346 Plans:
Airtel and Vodafone launched two aggressive plans to match against Jio Prime. Airtel’s Rs 345 plan offers 28GB of high-speed data for 28 days. The FUP is set at 1GB but the users will be able to use only 500MB of data during the day, while the remaining 500MB can be used between 12 am to 6 am. For no limits on timings, users can go for Rs 549 recharge. Also, calls beyond the 1,200 bundled minutes will be charged at 30 paise per minute. This pack is available only for prepaid users.
Vodafone offers Rs 346 pack under which user gets 28GB of mobile data and unlimited free calls. FUP is 1GB per day and once the limit is reached, the user will be charged.
For Prime members, Jio at Rs 303 offers unlimited free voice calls, SMSes, Jio apps subscription, unlimited data and 28GB 4G data with FUP of 1GB per day. The pack is available for both post-paid and pre-paid Prime users.
The interesting bit here is that the Jio plans are available to all users. However, the Airtel and Vodafone plans, along with those offered by others, are only available to select users. It’s like a lottery. Some users get them, most don’t.
With the launch of ‘Jio dynamic tariff plans’, Rivals will end up in losing a massive monthly revenue in few days. If Jio launches dynamic plans as per announcement, then 2017-2018 year will create a history in ‘Telecom Industry of India’.
