With just a few days to go before 2018 kicks in, Reliance Jio has announced two new 4G data plans that offer 1/2GB data per day for as low as Rs 299. The plans are only available to existing Jio Prime subscribers, who paid Rs 99 on top of their regular 4G plan earlier in 2018.

However, the plans come with 28 days validity only, probably giving us the first sign that Jio in 2018 will be a lot different from what the telecom operator had dished out in 2017.

The new plan is called Happy New Year 2018 and comes in two different prices. You can still avail offers with longer validity period (up to 91 days), with plans costing as much as Rs 499 giving you all the goodies, with high data usage for daily basis.

Existing Jio users, who’re running on previous Rs 399 or Rs 509 plans, can also avail these offers, which will get queued till their current plans expire.

The plans haven’t been updated on Jio.com or the MyJio app yet, but expect them to show up in the coming days.

  • Rs 199 – 1.2GB data per day with 28 days of validity
  • Rs 299 – 2GB data per day with 28 days of validity

(voice calls, SMS and Jio app benefits are remain unlimited)

Jio wishes its customers Happy New Year 2018 with two new revolutionary prepaid plans of Rs 199 and Rs 299. The Happy New Year 2018 plans will bring higher data benefits to subscribers.
Statement 

While the new plans aren’t exactly giving you high value for money, but even then, it’s good to see Jio being proactive to act against what its competition is up to these days.

A recent CMR report also suggests that unlike previous months, Reliance Jio in October saw a drastic fall in number of users added to its network, paving the way for incumbents like Airtel and Vodafone to take the centrestage, by offering data plans that are similar to Jio’s or even better.

Analysts believe that Jio needs to be sensible about pricing its 4G plans going forward, if it has to match up to its expectations in the coming years.

It’ll be interesting to see how Jio plans to counter its rivals in 2018, and whether it can continue to offer pocket-friendly data plans, just like they did it in 2017.
