Since the inception of the Reliance Jio 4G service, there is a boom in the 4G usage all over the country. Even entry-level smartphones are coming with this connectivity feature. Besides giving a boost to the 4G usage, Jio extended benefits to the users with its free and unlimited calls and data plans.
The dirt cheap plans offered by Jio triggered a tariff war instantly and forced the other telecom operators in the country to offer free and cheap data offers in order to combat with Jio. Notably, the Mukesh Ambani-led operator has offered free services for over six months and even now it is offering extremely cheap plans for three months at extremely affordable rates. To face the competition and retain subscribers, the others too have slashed their tariff plans and come with cheap data and voice call offers.
Today, we at GizBot have compiled a list of plans offered by Reliance Jio, Airtel, Vodafone, BSNL, and Idea Cellular. These plans are highly beneficial for the subscribers. It is clear that the users are the ones who are getting the benefits of the ongoing intensive tariff war.
