Reliance Jio is becoming the dominating factor in the telecom industry and hence all other network providers are being forced to reduce their plans and increase more benefits for the customers. Recently Reliance Jio launched IPL Golden Pass or Cricket pack worth Rs. 251 where they are giving 2GB of 4G internet data per day.
Following the footsteps of Jio, Airtel, as usual, joined this race with their own plan worth Rs. 249 to counter Reliance Jio's price with almost similar benefits.
Finally, as expected Idea also launched their plan similar to Airtel worth Rs. 249 providing 2 GB of internet data per day and some more benefits with a catch.
Compare Jio, Airtel and Idea 2GB Plan
Although it may seem like Airtel and Idea won the price race by providing Rs. 2 lesser than their biggest competitor Reliance Jio but they have some hidden terms and lesser benefits as compared to Reliance Jio and each other.
|Price||Rs. 251||Rs. 249||Rs. 249|
|Daily Data Benefit||2 GB||2 GB||2 GB|
|Total Data Benefit||102 GB||56 GB||56 GB|
|Free SMS||100 per day||100 per day||100 per day|
|Free Calling||35 Hours / week||300 min / week||1000 min / week|
|Premium Apps||Jio Apps||-||-|
|Validity||51 days||28 days||28 days|
As you can see from the above tabular illustration that Jio is still winning the race by the number of days of validity and additional premium benefits which others are not providing. Moreover, Reliance Jio has more free calling hours as compared to Airtel and Idea.
Before going ahead let us clear that Jio is currently providing a plan worth Rs. 198 which offers 2GB data per day with unlimited free voice calling and free SMS. The validity of this plan is 28 days.
Hence if you compare this plan with Airtel and Idea plan, Reliance Jio is definitely winning this price race by Rs. 50 margins.
