Jio Rs 149 Plan Details
Under Jio Rs 149 plan, the company is offering unlimited data, unlimited voice calling, 300 SMS, and access to its apps.

Jio Rs. 149 Plan – What Really Changes
Everything is same except the additional data to users. This data will be available to users at a reduced speed of 64Kbps. The remaining benefits like unlimited voice calling and Free messages are still intact. Reliance Jio has already disrupted the market with its aggressive plans offering unlimited data and free voice calls.
How to Restore 4G Speed Again
With unlimited data even at a lower speed, subscribers won’t have to recharge once again to continue browsing the internet. To restore 4G speed, the user has option to top-up via MyJio App or from Jio website. Jio has a Rs.96 top-up voucher that offers 1GB data daily for a period of 7 days. After doing this top-up, the internet speed will restore back to the full 4G speed.

Jio has a user base of 130 million in this short duration thanks to its free data & voice offers. The changes in Rs. 149 plan is one of the key upgrades in the tariff plans of Jio.
