Reliance Jio 4G data tariff is here, and its definitely cheaper than its rivals. It starts at Rs 149 and goes all the way up to Rs 4,999 for postpaid users. Reliance Industries Limited chairman Mukesh Ambani announced company’s 4G data plans at AGM (Annual General Meeting) on September 1. Reliance Jio 4G services are currently free under company’s Preview offer ad users will only be charged form January 1, 2017. Ambani is calling this the ‘Jio Welcome Offer.’ The best part is – all Reliance Jio 4G plans come with an access to free local and STD voice calls. Also, the company will not charge for roaming within India from Jio customers.
Reliance Jio 4G offer is now open to most smartphone brands including Samsung, LG, HTC, Asus, Intex, Videocon, Gionee, Vivo, Micromax, Lava, Lenovo and more. The Preview offer was only compatible with Reliance Lyf smartphones earlier. Another way to use Reliance Jio 4G services is through company’s JioFi device. The Reliance JioFi device is a WiFi hotspot that can connect to up to 10 devices at a time and one more through USB.
Also, getting a Reliance Jio SIM card is easy. Users need to walk in to a Reliance Digital Store or Digital Xpress Mini store with required documents and passport size photographs to buy a Jio 4G SIM card. The process of submitting documents, will however, be bypassed once e-KYC solution is introduced.
