Now Idea has come up with another tariff plan to fight Reliance Jio. This plan is Rs 499, which has validity of 82 days and will get 2 GB of data per day, unlimited voice calling and 100 free SMS per day.
Jio’s collision with plan of Rs 498
In the case of benefits, this new Idea plan is similar to Vodafone’s Rs 511 plan. Customers also get 2 GB of data, unlimited voice calling and 100 free SMS per day in Vodafone’s prepaid plan of Rs 511. However, its validity is 84 days. The special thing is that this new Idea plan is valid across the country and through this plan, the telecom company is directly battling Reliance Jio’s plan of Rs 498. In the plan of Jio Rs 498, customers get 2 GB data per day for 91 days.
Advantages of Idea’s Rs 499 plan
In this plan, customers get 2Gb data of 4G / 3G / 2G daily, but after the expiry of valid deadline, the data will be charged 4 paise per 10 KB. Customers will also get unlimited voice calling facility in this plan, but customers will be charged at one penny per second for more than 250 minutes in a day.
Customers who use more than 1 thousand minutes within 7 days, they will have to pay the calling charge per day for one paisa per second during the remaining 7 days. Customers will get 100 free SMS for valid time limit ie 82 days, but after that, charges will be charged for 1 or 1.5 rupees per SMS.
