Jio launches annual plan at Rs 2999 with 2.5GB daily data, check similar plans from Airtel and Vi
Telecom operators Airtel, Jio and Vi rolled out some prepaid plans after the tariff hike in December that are likely to bring some respite for users. Earlier this month, the telcos introduced prepaid plans around Rs 666 that give access to over 70 days validity. While Airtel and Vi offer 77 days validity with their Rs 666 prepaid plans, Jio gives 84 days validity with its plan. All plans give access to 1.5GB daily data and other benefits. Jio has now introduced an annual plan priced at Rs 2999.
The new prepaid plan from Jio is similar to prepaid plans from Airtel and Vi priced at Rs 2999 and Rs 2899 respectively. These plans are thus priced under Rs 3000 and will be useful for users who are only looking for annual data and calling benefits and are not focussed on streaming benefits. For users looking for streaming benefits, Airtel, Jio and Vi offer annual prepaid plans priced at Rs 3359, Rs 3119 and Rs 3099 respectively.
The Rs 2999 from Jio offers 2.5GB data per day along with 100SMS per day. The plan comes with a validity of 365. Apart from the usual data benefits, the plan offers discounts on JioMart and other Jio services. The prepaid plan is listed under the “20% JioMart Maha Cashback” offer on the website. This means that if subscribers opt for this plan, they will receive 20 percent cashback upon purchasing items from JioMart.
The cashback is credited to the JioMart wallet, which can also be used for future purchases. Apart from the discounts, users will also get a free subscription to four Jio applications, including JioTV, JioCinema, JioSecurity, and JioCloud.
Meanwhile, Airtel is offering a prepaid plan at Rs 2999 that offers 2GB daily data along with unlimited calls and 100 SMS per day. The plan has a validity of 365 days. The additional benefits of this plan include access to Disney+ Hotstar Mobile benefit, Amazon Prime Video Mobile benefit, Apollo 24 | 7 circles, free online courses, Rs 100 cashback on Fastag, free hellotunes and free WynkMusic.
Vi is also offering a prepaid plan with identical benefits priced at Rs 2899 that bring identical benefits as the above-stated plan but without the Disney+ Hotstar benefit. 1.5GB daily data with unlimited calls and 100SMS per day. This plan gives access to binge all night, weekend data rollover benefit, access to Vi movies and TV and up to 2GB backup data every month with data delights.
