Jio Prime has caused such a stir in the Indian telecom sector that all major operators have been forced to come up with new and updated plans offering unlimited data.
The catch here is that out of the 1GB daily data cap, only 500MB is available during the day and the rest 500MB can only be consumed between the unearthly hours of 3 and 5 am at night.
Jio on the other hand, offers Prime the chance to continue enjoying unlimited data till 31st March 2018, albeit with a fair usage cap of 1GB/day by shelling out Rs 303/month. There is also a Rs 499/month plan which offers 2GB of 4G data a day.
Airtel though has an advantage over Jio Prime and that is the fact that while the latter’s offer is only available for Prime customers, the former’s plan is available to the entirety of its customer base.
