It looks the stage is all set for another tariff war. Till now, Reliance Jio was focusing on prepaid and FTTH subscribers. The telecom company has now focused its attention on the post-paid segment thereby wooing the high revenue customers.
By launching Jio Postpaid Plus plans, Mr Akash Ambani, Director, Reliance Jio Infocomm, said: “There can’t be a more opportune time to introduce JioPostpaid Plus.” The company has already got the trust of close to 400 million satisfied customers.
Currently, Jio has only one postpaid plan at ₹199. The latest decision to launch Jio Postpaid Plus plans is a significant move to gain loyalty towards the brand Jio. Starting ₹399, the Jio Postpaid Plus has got 5 plans in its kitty.
Apart from the existing ₹199, Jio will now have new Postpaid Plus plans including ₹399, ₹599, ₹799, ₹999 and ₹1499.
Leaving Jio aside, the postpaid user base constitutes about 4-5% of the total mobile subscribers. However, this single-digit subscriber base provides a whopping 25% of the revenue to the mobile operator.
Till now, this has been shared by Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea.
Most of the postpaid users are considered loyal and thus high priority service is given to them. Following a cue from its competition, the Reliance Jio has got well-crafted Postpaid Dhan Dhana Dhan, Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan theme.
By providing a free subscription to popular OTT streaming services like Amazon Prime, Netflix, and Disney+ Hotstar, the new Jio PostPaidPlus plans have provided the best value.
The Jio has got FAMILY PLAN at ₹250 per connection and data rollover up to 500GB. The Wi-Fi calling in India and abroad is a huge value addition.

What’s Your Opinion?
Undoubtedly, the new Jio postpaid plus tariff plans will unleash a tariff war in the postpaid segment. However, it should be noted down that both Bharti Airtel and Vi has got higher-end plans at ₹1599 providing some special concessions to the frequent flyers.
However, they do provide lesser data and complimentary access to Netflix and Amazon Prime only on certain plans.
