Best 4G data tariff plans for May 2017

Sunday, 7 May 2017
Fierce competition in the Indian telecom services sector is a boon for consumers, as they get more data at high speed and free voice calls at competitive costs. Reliance Jio dropped the bomb, so to speak, in October last year, by offering free unlimited 4G data and calls for three months, forcing Bharti Airtel, Vodafone, Idea and BSNL to introduce new tariffs to retain subscribers.
Let's take a look at the best data plans major telecom operators are offering for May 2017:
Reliance Jio (prepaid):
Rs 309 4G data plan offers free voice call to subscribers of all telecom operators (local, STD and roaming), unlimited data at 4G speed for 84GB with a daily FUP of 1GB (unlimited data at 128kbps post 1GB usage), and unlimited SMS (local STD and roaming). The offer is valid for 84 days for the first recharge and 28 days for the second recharge at 4G speed for 28GB. The first recharge benefit is not available for customers already registered for Jio Summer Surprise.
Rs 509 4G data plan offers free voice call to subscribers of all telecom operators (local, STD and roaming), unlimited data at 4G speed for 128GB with a daily FUP of 2GB (unlimited data at 128kbps post 2GB usage), and unlimited SMS (local STD and roaming). Its validity is for 84 days for the first recharge and 28 days for the second recharge at 4G speed for 56GB. The first recharge benefit is not available for customers already registered for Jio Summer Surprise.

Rs 309 4G data plan for post-paid subscribers offers almost the same benefits as the pre-paid option. However, post-paid subscribers get 4G speed for 90GB on first recharge and 4G speed for 30GB on second recharge.
