But when the pressure started to build on the new telco from the incumbents and telecom regulatory body, Jio had to opt a or subscription based model for its data and voice services. However, it is yet to be known whether the tariff will be limited only to buyers of the 4G feature phone or for customers using the smartphones as well.
With its new launch, Jio will hope to disrupt the feature phone market as well.
Well, now the launching of Reliance Jio 4G VoLTE featured phone is no more a surprise.
As we all know Jio has already made previous year an exciting one with the whole new world of Jio4G free services.
Along with the device, the company is also expected to launch cheaper data plans, reducing the average revenue per user (ARPU). By Jio's unbelievable data prices, nearly all the telecom operators have joined the price war stripped.
But if Netflix is not for you, and you happen to be a prepaid customer, the telecom operator is offering a new tariff plan called SuperNight, which promises unlimited 3G/4G data during the night - 1am-6am - for Rs 29. If you want to buy the JioFi device and a new SIM, you can do so online, or from Reliance Digital outlets, or retail stores. The Rs. 509 plan gives 2GB data per day for four months, while the Rs. 999 plan gives 120GB data for two months, instead of one month.
Customers who recharge with Rs 309 will receive 1GB of data per day for six months.
More recent publicly-available data from listed companies shows that the decline in new subscribers continues. This, too, is higher than the 168GB data they get with the Rs. 509 pack for a regular SIM card. Few users have activated both the offers and we detail you how the benefits work in the coming days. If you are a late bloomer and you haven't purchased a Jio SIM card yet, this might be the flawless offer for you. The device is priced at Rs 1,999.style="text-align: center;"
