Reliance Jio tops chart in 4G download speed in March: TRAI report

Reliance Jio tops chart in 4G download speed in March: TRAI report

Their customer base has gone down enormously in few months only. Reliance Jio has reached millions of customers with its unlimited services such as free voice calls, free 4G Data, free SMS and other peculiar offers.

Reliance Jio did not offer worldwide calling plans until recently.

Subscribers have to select their favourite teams and if the chosen team wins, users get 3GB data while a draw will offer 2GB free data. If you use both data and calls, the Rs. 399 plan is the best for you.

Reliance Jio has rolled out its worldwide tariffs, including ISD rate cutter plans which offer global calling at as low as Rs 3 per minute. Users get 300 minutes of free calling per day within its own network, and 3,000 minutes of free local and STD calls for 70 days.

Pound surge suggests UK election will yield smoother Brexit
Some opinion polls have the Conservative Party a whopping 20 percentage points ahead of the main opposition Labour Party. The election will be held on June 8, almost a year after 52 percent of Britons voted to leave the European Union (EU).

Further, if you crossed this voice calling limit, you will be charged Rs. 0.10 per minute.

Rival Airtel, on the other hand, has promised "the best worldwide roaming rates" to users with its "Double Your Holiday Surprises" offer.

"At the end of the series you will accumulate all your 4G data which could be as much as 168 GB if your team wins all matches", the company said. It rolled out a new scheme which automatically activates roaming packs for users after exhaustion of said benefits under a plan, in case users forget to recharge before leaving India.

The company added, "Jio will credit the GBs earned by you over the next 10 recharges as data boosters that will work on top of your existing packs validity".

WestJet Airlines plans to launch new discount airline later this year
Canadian airline WestJet announced on Thursday its plan to launch a new ultra low-priced carrier by the end of 2017. The airline also said it plans to add 105 new weekly flights.

Fine print: The free voice calling limitations as seen in the Rs. 399 plan apply for the Rs. 345 plan as well.

The first caveat to this offer is for those who have not registered before April 30 and will not get the total complimentary 4G data free. However, there is a slight change in voice calling. In this plan, the users will get 300 minutes per day (1,200 minutes for a week) on Airtel to Airtel for 70 days.

In order to retain its customer, other companies are coming with very lucrative plans. Stay tuned here for more telecom news.
