Which Is The Best Tariff Plan From Reliance Jio?
All heavy data users on a postpaid connection should go for either Rs. 509 or Rs. 999 plan. However, in order to get the maximum benefits from the bundled data, I would recommend that you go with Rs. 999 plan offering 60 GB (without any daily cap) data for a month.
The prepaid users who are wary of their budget must not opt for any plan less than Rs. 999, which is my personal favourite. The plan carries a validity of 60 days and offers 60 GB data without any daily cap on the high-speed data. This makes the plan cost just Rs. 500/month.
Kindly note that my opinion is based on my daily mobile data usage which comes out to 300-400 MB on a regular day and exceeds 2 GB/day when I am travelling. So while I can opt for any plan offering 1 GB/day, it becomes a pain for me to browse at 128 Kbps when I am travelling.
Do let us know which Jio plan would you opt for and why. Thanks for reading.
