Jio Postpaid: New Rs

Jio Postpaid: New Rs

Under the service, the telco is offering a postpaid tariff plan, which comes pre-activated with all the services such as voice, internet, SMS, and global calling. To be available for subscription starting May 15, the service comes with various options like "Zero-Touch" service, as well as national roaming, global calling and worldwide roaming plans. These rates are considerably lower than the cheapest plans from Vodafone or Airtel.

That said, Jio has always been a prepaid service provider, and the global roaming service in the past was messed up one. It offers 25GB of data a month, free voice calls, unlimited SMS messages, premium subscriptions to Jio Apps, as well as access to ISD calls without requiring a security deposit.

In addition to the voice and data benefits, the JioPostPaid also gives consumers option to make global calls at the rate of 50 paisa per minute for the USA and Canada. On Thursday the company announced a new postpaid plan named JioPostPaid that aims to disrupt the market in a fairly significant way. It has redefined the postpaid services that Indians have experienced till date by introducing the revolutionary "Zero-Touch" Postpaid. These calling rates will not include any service charges, and will be offered without the need for a security deposit amount.

The JioPostpaid plan offers unlimited voice calls and SMS within India at Rs 199, and the global calling rates start at Rs 50 paise per minute. While worldwide roaming will not require any packs to be activated.

Israeli strikes on bases in Syria killed 15, including eight Iranians: SOHR
No Israeli fighter jets were hit in the strikes, but Conricus said they came under heavy anti-aircraft fire. Syrian air defences fired at two Israeli missiles, destroying both, Syrian state news agency SANA said.

Those subscribing to JioPostpaid will receive pre-activated services without any interruptions, as part of the company's Zero-Touch experience.

Even for worldwide roaming, the JioPostPaid plan offers a more seamless way, where consumer will not have to call up the customer care in advance to get the roaming activated on their phones. One tariff offers voice calls at Rs. 2 per minute, mobile data at Rs. 2 per MB, and SMS messages at Rs. 2 per message.

For example, in the prepaid segment, a Rs 198 recharge can give you 2 GB of data per day for 28 days, or 56 GB in all, while the postpaid plan offers only 25 GB.

The company, which launched its 4G services in September 2016, is facing slow growth in ARPU because of its cost effective data plans to pre-paid customers.
