    Mukesh Ambani in a speech today announcing 1oo million subscribers of Jio in India, also introduced what is called the Jio Prime service. The details are a little unclear as of now, but it goes something like this:

    - Between 1 and 31 March 2017, you can join Jio Prime for a one time fee of Rs.99
    - From 1 Apr 2017 to 31 March 2018, you can enjoy the new year offer which includes unlimited calls, and data limit of 1GB/day, for a fee of Rs.303 per month.

    At Rs.303/month for what is effectively 30 GB per month, and unlimited calls, it is still a good choice.

    Need To Pay - 99/- for one time between 01/03/2017 to 31/03/2017 to migrate into the plan / offer.

    From 01/04/2017 to 31/03/2018 - need to pay 303/- per month to use this offer which is 30 GB High-Speed Data per month (1GB Per Day) and Unlimted Calls.

    To sum it up - What we are doing now -> To continue doing this we need to pay the above tariff.

    My question who don't want this offer and don't want to migrate by paying 99/-,

    Is it possible for them to go with 149/- per 28 days offer ?

    The happy new year offer is 1 GB/day. I guess it will be the same, and not a cumulative 30GB per month.

    Yes. All plans posted in site are applicable if you don't go in prime offer[DOUBLEPOST=1487683476][/DOUBLEPOST]
    I also wished it was 30 gb per month to be used anytime. Not 1gb daily.[DOUBLEPOST=1487683545][/DOUBLEPOST]
    It's same exact speed regime. Exhaust data of 1gb and you are throttled to 2g data rates.

    wow they really got some balls to charge Rs303 per month for a ridiculous service atleast which i have experienced in south Delhi
    Nowadays when i have to call someone i have to dial 2-3 times to properly talk for 2 mintues
    They haven't improved their infrastructure even a little bit since release
    When i got the sim back in November i could call anyone without any problem now i feel lucky when i can talk continuously for 4 minutes

    Before new year plan i used to get 1Mbps most of the time and upto 5Mbps after 1am.
    Now i don't even touch 1Mbps and get a fluctuating speed of 512Kbps-2Mbps after 1am
    I would be surprised even if 30% users retain their service in delhi
    This is Jio "4G"

    Jio understood over these days that nobody will pay for their previously proposed plans of : Rs 499 for 4gb data per month considering the patchy & poor connectivity service It offers.

    Now it makes a sense to keep Jio Sim for data at least ; it's a good plan anyway. Idea and Airtel shares expectedly fell by 1 - 3% and reliance shares climbed up after the announcement.

    Just would like to mention that check the band your phone is on. If Band 3, then its surely going to be crap.
