Reliance Jio Unveils Prime Membership Plans and Tariff

Reliance Jio Prime: Avail unlimited data, calls, messages from tomorrow Jio builds all-IP digital services platform with Cisco

Both the plans will be bundled plans with the first on for Rs 145 where the users will get 14GB of 3G/4G data along with unlimited video calls from Airtel to Airtel.

Now, to enjoy benefits that are similar to the Happy New Year scheme, consumers will have to enroll for the Jio Prime Membership before 31 March.

For its flagship Rs 303 plan that was unveiled on February 21 the company said its Prime users would get 1GB data a day for 28 days i.e. 28 GB a month. Non-Prime members get 2.5GB data with no FUP.

All Jio Prime plans offer unlimited voice calls to all operators as well as free roaming.

Jio's Rs 303 plan offers unlimited data, while 28GB is available at 4G speeds.

Apart from Samsung, Jio recently joined hands with US-based Cisco for sourcing networking solutions.

12 cops killed by 'Taliban infiltrator' in Afghanistan's Helmand province
Taliban insurgents, who control vast swathes of the opium-ravaged province, claimed responsibility for the killings. Other reports said the infiltrator killed the police officers himself.

Reliance Jio has announced new prepaid and postpaid 4G data plans for Prime members that will give them additional benefits compared to non-Prime members. Samsung Electronics offered LTE core equipments, base stations and Voice over LTE (VoLTE) solutions that realize high quality voice calls over a 4G LTE network to Reliance Jio. For that price, earlier customers could get only 10GB of 4G data. But due to Fair Usage Policy (FUP), the user will get only 1GB with fast 4G connection per day, beyond which the internet speed will drop to 128kbps.

So how do you do a Jio Prime recharge? However, these plans are specific to users.

While users may be delighted by the offer, Reliance Jio has left its competitors anxious, with Bharti Airtel's Chairman Sunil Mittal saying, "Tariffs that they (Jio) have announced are still very aggressive, which means you got to respond". It offers Jio customers one more reason to continue using Jio.

Now tap on the Get Jio Prime option.

Next, you'll have to sign in - remember, your Jio number is your username, and if you haven't set a password already, you'll be prompted to do so. With the All-IP network, Jio offers a broadband service at Dollars 0.15 per GB. Others include Rs 91 (2 GB data), Rs 201 (5 GB data), and Rs 301 (10 GB data). But from April 1, it will start charging. If you're on any other screen, just tap on the three-horizontal lines menu button on the top left, and tap on Jio Prime.
