As a part of its celebrations, Jio offers 5 months of free data and calls with Jio-Fi for Independence Day. Yes, you read it right! The Ambani owned tech giant is offering free 4G data and complimentary Jio-to-Jio calls for five months, completely free.
Launched in late 2015, Jio-Fi is a Wi-Fi connectivity device launched by Reliance India Limited. It can connect a minimum of ten devices to 4G connectivity at once and also supports USB connection. Jio-Fi gained popularity in a very short time and is one of the most widely used technical products in India.
The free offer
Jio offers 5 months of free data and calls with Jio-Fi for Independence Day, 2020. The offer can be availed by people both online and offline. All that you need is a Jio-Fi device, which is currently available at a price of Rs. 1,999, along with an FRC plan for the Sim Card. You can either purchase these in Reliance and Jio stores, or you can even access them from their website.
RIL has not directly stated how many months the offer will last under each recharge option. “During the time of activation, please select one of 3 plan recharges offered. On the basis of your choice, you will receive offer benefits as applicable,” the company website explicitly states.
However, this offer is valid only for new purchases of the Jio-Fi device and Jio sim.
How to avail the offer?
Once you have access to the Jio-Fi device and the sim card, you need to activate a recharge for the Jio sim. You will have three options for this- Rs. 199, Rs. 249 and Rs. 349. You will also have to spend an extra Rs. 99 to activate Jio Prime membership.
When you opt for the Rs. 199 recharge you get 1.5 GB of daily high-speed data and unlimited Jio-to-Jio calls. You also avail 1000 minutes free calling to other networks and 100 SMSes per day.
If you opt for the Rs. 249 recharge, you get 2 GB of daily high-speed data and unlimited Jio-to-Jio calls. Here, too you get the same 1000 minutes to call other networks and again, 100 SMSes per day.
The Rs. 349 recharge allows you 3 GB of daily data and unlimited Jio-to-Jio calls. You again get 1000 minutes per day for calling other networks, along with complimentary 100 SMSes.
All these three recharge options come with a validity of 28 days. If you activate the Prime membership, these recharge options will increase to the validity of 140, 112 and 84 days, respectively.
