Reliance Jio’s All-In-One Pack is cheaper than Bharti Airtel & Vodafone Plans
After a really short period which may well be considered as a hush, the telecom fights have continued in a serious node. Reliance Jio has announced the new All-In-One plans for the Jio mobile subscribers in India. The costs for these begin at Rs 222 per month and included as a portion of the tariff are endless Jio-to-Jio voice calls, bundled calls to other mobile networks as well as 2 GB of daily 4G mobile internet. This takes on the Rs 249 plan of Airtel and the Rs 229 plan of Vodafone, for their individual prepaid mobile subscribers in India.
The Jio All-In-One plan begins at Rs 222 per month and this incorporates 2GB of daily 4G mobile data, endless calls to other Jio numbers over India, and also includes 1,000 minutes of voice calls to other mobile network and 100 SMSes per day. This indicates you will get 56 GB of mobile internet for 28 days of the validity period for the Rs 222 plan. The plan moreover bundles free subscriptions for all of Jio’s apps, which also includes Jio TV and Jio Cinema.
Bharti Airtel offers a Rs 249 per month tariff plan that bundles Unlimited local + STD + Roaming calls along with 2GB mobile internet data per day with a validity of 28 days. The critical this note is that all calls from Bharti Airtel to any mobile network across India are unlimited and free – this has been the clean controversy between Reliance Jio and other telecom operators in India, since Reliance Jio presently started charging Rs 0.06 paisa per minute for calls made from Jio to other mobile networks in India.
With the new All-In-One Plan of Rs 222, Reliance Jio is claiming a monthly recharge cost will be reduced by Rs 80 with 1,000 minutes of an off-net call.
The Airtel’s Rs 249 plan moreover bundles a free subscription for Airtel XStream video streaming service which incorporates premium substance from platforms counting Zee5 and Hooq as well as Live TV. In addition, Subscriber also getting a subscription of the Airtel Wynk music streaming platform along with Rs 4 lakh of Term Life Insurance from HDFC Life.
Vodafone Idea has a Rs 229 plan that comes with Unlimited Local + STD & Roaming calls as well as 2GB data per day with a validity of 28 days. Similar to Bharti Airtel’s Rs 249 plan, all calls across India to any mobile network are unlimited and free. This moreover bundles subscription of Vodafone Play app, which can be used for streaming video, music and many more.
But this is often where things get curiously since not at all like plans by Airtel and Vodafone, the consequent few months are accessible for a much lesser cost than a full recharge for another 28-days of Validity. Reliance Jio mentioned, “every Rs 111 extra payment over base plan gives 1-month additional service”. This implies that the Jio All-In-One plan costs Rs 333 over 56 days (with 112 GB mobile data) and Rs 444 over 84 days (with 168GB mobile data). There’s also a Rs 555 plan with a validity of 84 days, but this bundles 3,000 minutes of calls to other telecom operators, whereas the rest of the pack benefits are the same as the others.
If a subscriber is recharging for Airtel prepaid connection with Rs 249 plan for every 28 days, the cost would be Rs 298 and Rs 747 for 56 and 84 days respectively. Vodafone’s Rs 229 plan will cost Rs 458 and Rs 687 for 56 days and 84 days respectively. It means Reliance Jio’s “All-In-One” pack costs cheaper than Bharti Airtel & Vodafone Idea.
