Reliance JioPhone delivery to begin this Navratri

Here we have collated some of the best data and voice plans being offered by Airtel, Vodafone, Reliance Jio, Idea Cellular, BSNL and Aircel. New prepaid and postpaid plans worth Rs 349 and Rs 399 were also introduced.

To counter the Reliance Jio wave, India's number one telecom operator Airtel has rolled out new data and voice plans starting at Rs 8. However, it isn't available for all.

In telecom market highly competitive Reliance Jio, now Vodafone is offering up to 250MBs or megabytes of for its prepaid customers at Rs 87 and also offers the other benefits. Now, even if you want to spend Rs 50 or Rs 500, you will get some awesome recharge plans for both the scenarios. While Airtel gives 28GB of 4G data for 28 days if you recharge your Airtel number with Rs. 349, Jio customers, upon recharging with Rs 349, will get 20 GB of 4G data for 56 days. Rs 60 plan is offering talk time of Rs 58 plus unlimited validity, the Rs 90 is offering talk time of Rs 88 and unlimited validity. Jio Phone bookings that started on August 24 touched hit 6 million within three days of its pre-booking but on August 28, the pre-booking had to be suspended due to heavy demand.

Rs 349 plan offers unlimited local and STD calls along with 28 GB data (1 GB per day) for 28 days. The pack also comes with free calling. the calling is not unlimited as this pack comes with weekly 1000 minutes calling free. What Jio started was unparalleled at that time and by large still remains unbeaten when it comes to voice calls. Rest of the offerings including FUP limit remains same. But unlike Jio, Airtel's Rs 399 plan is being offered only to select prepaid customers.

4 million personal records of Time Warner cable customers exposed
They discovered two repositories hosted using Amazon's S3 cloud storage service, neither requiring a password for access. But due to the size of the cache, however, the researchers could not immediately say precisely how many were affected.

Rs. 5 plan: 4GB 3G/4G data for 7 days. In the initial days, Jio struggled a bit with its services - data speed fluctuated a bit, but soon after it got into the track giving sleepless nights to other telecom giants.

Only 1% of Indians spent more than Rs 800 on monthly tariff plans. With more data to avail at lower costs and higher 4G internet speeds, the average Indian user has been happy. Jio's predatory business model, typified by its use of "Summer Surprise" and "Dhan Dhana Dhan" offers, saw it disrupt the market by working around and not within TRAI-framed guidelines. It offers that are focused on hourly, nightly, daily and weekly usages.

Extending the validity from 360 days to 390 days, this plan now offers 780GB data as opposed to 750GB data keeping the per day data to average about 2GB.
