The company announced that it will provide unlimited data which is capped at 500MB per day at the cost of Rs 153 per month. Another cool option is that you can hook this phone to a TV using a Jio Phone TV cable. The service, however, would cost you Rs 309 per month extra.
Reliance has been on the top of the mobile service provider game for some time now, courtesy its extremely aggressive data plans and services. It has given the gunghos in the telecom industry like Airtel and Vodafone a solid run for their customers. And like the previous services from Jio which were initially free, the Jio Phone handset is free. However, customers would have pay an upfront security deposit of Rs 1,500. This fee is refundable after 36 months and the phone, despite being a basic unit, offered up to 4G connectivity.
