NEW DELHI,

Mar 3,

(PTI),

RELIANCE Jio on Friday sweetened the offering for its ‘Prime’ members saying those recharging with Rs 303 will get an extra 5GB data beyond the 28GB promised under the scheme. So far, Prime members -- on payment of Rs 303 per month and a one-time joining fee of Rs 99 -- would be entitled to unlimited free voice calls (STD and roaming) and text messages, 28GB data at 4G speeds, subject to a usage cap of 1GB a day, the breach of which would slow down the speed unless more data was bought. The plan comes with a 28-day validity.

The Prime membership offer requires customers to enrol by March 31. Under new offer, Jio has decided to load an extra 5GB data (worth Rs 201) to those recharging with Rs 303. This essentially means that subscribers who breach 1GB daily limit would not face slowdown in speeds given new 5GB data pool being made available.
