  • Idea Cellular’s Revised Tariff Plans

Reliance Jio, on Monday, announced its new recharge plans for its users as a part of the Happy New Year 2018 offer, wherein it will give 1.5 GB data per day in four of its packs.

Rs 398 plan: There is now 1.5GB daily data for 70 days on this plan.

Jio's Rs. 459 prepaid plan will be available at Rs. 399 after getting a price cut of Rs. 50. After the rollout of VoLTE services, Vodafone may offer unlimited voice calls without any FUP limit, like Bharti Airtel and Reliance Jio. The Rs 448 plan that earlier came with 70 days' validity and offered 70GB data is now valid for 82 days which means 82GB data in total.

They say the adult male smeared the excrement in a couple of bathrooms, and took off his shirt and tried to stuff it in a toilet. In a statement to the Washington Post , United said the flight made the unscheduled stop because of "a disruptive passenger".

If you are not keen on this 20% extra validity but more interested in extra high-speed data per day, the company has another plan for you. Under the new plan, users will get up to 3.5GB 4G data per day. Following convention, these revised plans will have a ripple effect on the other telecom operators in the country. In short, customers can avail 1GB data per day in addition to unlimited calling and SMS for that duration. The company has introduced special 1.5GB per day data plans. The telco now offers either 50 per cent more data or has cut down the tariff of the plan by Rs 50. Users looking to opt for that offer should ideally hold back till 9th Jan to get the best of both worlds.

Rs 198 plan: Jio now offers more data on this. Apart from this, users will get unlimited voice calls on local and STD networks. This same plan now has a 91 days validity, offering 91GB data in total.

Airtel offers unlimited calling, but there are terms and conditions, the voice calls are limited to 300 minutes per day and 1200 minutes per week. Starting tomorrow, Jio will add 14GB more data and 14 days additional validity for the same price. It will now compete against Airtel's Rs 509 plan which also offers same amount of data.
