Reliance Jio has rolled out its Jio Prime membership plan. Here's how to subscribe and recharge.
Reliance Jio has rolled out its Jio Prime membership plan. The Prime membership plan is an extension of Reliance Jio’s Happy New Year plan which will end on March 31. Reliance had introduced the Jio network last year and had been very aggressive with its tariff plans, which were basically free. But after March 31, users will not get everything for free. But in order to minimise the effect, Reliance Jio has introduced the Prime membership plan where users will have to pay a certain amount, which is essentially much less than other incumbents. In order to continue using the previous ‘Happy New Year’ offer, Jio users will have to pay a subscription fee of Rs 99. Additionally, they will have to shell out Rs 303 every month to continue accessing Jio’s 4G services and also the full bouquet of Jio’s media services for one year.
