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.

Thomas outshines Spieth to win at TPC Boston
Two shots behind his playing partner Thomas, he pushed his approach long and left himself a hard chip, ultimately making bogey. Former world number one and three-time major champion Jordan Spieth is two shots off the pace heading into the deciding round.

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.
