On the flip side, brokerage Credit Suisse, however, feels market leader Bharti Airtel will match Jio's paid offers, going forward.
Reliance Jio services are all set to go commercial from April 1 and the company announced Reliance Jio Prime programme, in order to retain customers.
The Rs.999 plan gives a Prime member 60GB of data for one billing cycle with the no FUP cap, while a non-Prime member receives 12.5GB data.
Reliance Jio on realising that the poster boy of digital economy could become a potential customer tweeted him with their offer.
The Prime membership can either be obtained via the MyJio app or by registering at a nearby store which deals in Jio sims before March 31, 2017. The SMS limit remains at 100 free SMS per day. The price of two new plans is Rs.342 and Rs.346.
Jio has now sweetened the offer further by offering 5GB of extra data. 303 recharge pack allows user to consume 1GB of data whenever they choose to. It was nearly like a similar offering from every operator before Reliance Jio entered the scene and now, there has been a big fall in the prices and increment in the services offered by the same carriers for the same prices.
