Jio Raises Prepaid Rates By Up To 20%
Mumbai: Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio Infocomm has increased its prepaid tariffs by 20%, the company said in a statement on Sunday. The new unlimited plans will come in effect from 1 December. Earlier, Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea raised tariffs by 20-25%.
All the three major private telecom operators have now revised tariffs citing the need for a higher Average Revenue Per User (ARPU).
“In line with its commitment to further strengthen a sustainable telecom industry, where every Indian is empowered with a true digital life, Jio today announced its new unlimited plans,” said a company statement.
“These plans will provide the best value in the industry,” the statement said, adding that the plans, all offering unlimited voice calls, now start from Rs 155 for 2 GB data per month with a validity of 28 days, against Rs 129 earlier and goes up to Rs 2,879 that offers 2 GB/day of data with a validity of 365 days, from Rs 2399 earlier.
