Jio still wins

So I was looking at the knee jerk reaction plans from Airtel , Vodafone and others , to Jio’s new paid plans. By subscribing to Jio Prime, existing Jio 4G users get 1GB per day for the next 12 months, and all they have to pay is Rs 303. Those who aren’t part of the Jio family and are keen on joining them post 1 April, can get plans that offer as much as 2.5GB for a month at Rs 303.


Airtel feels that a Rs 345 plan, which offers 28GB 4G data per month, will satisfy its existing users. They have launched plans priced at Rs 345 and Rs 549, offering 28GB free data for the month


Vodafone is offering a Rs 346 prepaid plan for its users in select circles, which is why it is hard to locate the plan on the company’s website and mobile app.



Going by the numbers and benefits on offer, Jio Prime trumps both Airtel and Vodafone. Jio is giving free voice calls, no roaming and up to 56GB of data every month till March 2018.

Airtel and Vodafone are trying their best with a new set of plans to compete with Reliance Jio, but are still lagging behind. Also, the lack of clarification as to how Airtel and Vodafone will offer their packs, leaves customers in a fix.


I guess the writing on the wall is clear, Jio’s clearly defined plans will work out cheaper to the average subscriber.
