Reliance Jio 4G SIM has 120GB Monthly FUP, daily 4GB usage Limit under Welcome Offer



We saw big reveals at the Annual General Meeting of Reliance Industries Limited, which is the parent company of Reliance Jio Infocom Limited. As we all know that company announced it’s launch of Free Welcome Offer from September 5th to December 31st, 2016. Mukesh Ambani set the stage on fire with the offering of unlimited free 4G data, voice, SMS and Jio premium apps announcement.

Despite being touted as the best offer yet for Indians in the telecom history, there are some points that you should know about the Jio Welcome Offer. Users who were thinking to go on download spree should be at least worried about the daily usage limit that Jio has implemented on each subscribers signing up for their service under this Welcome Offer.

Reliance Jio 4G Pricing, Plans, Data Packs & all your 25 Questions Answered

To counter the misuse and over usage of bandwidth, the company has implemented a daily FUP in their unlimited data usage scheme for Jio user who would be signing up at Jio stores starting coming Monday. Compared to the Preview Offer that many were using before the announcement of Welcome Offer, as they were able to enjoy truly unlimited data access at 4G speeds.

The new offer seems to be injustice compared to Preview Offer, but seeing from the company’s perspective, it was bound to happen as offering truly unlimited data for potential 100 million users would take quite a toll on system servers.

If you are concerned whether you would be able to access the data after 4GB limit is exhausted, well, you don’t have to. Though, there is a catch to it. You would be able to access the internet after the daily 4GB limit is finished but at 128 kbps speed, which set you back to the era of a dial-up connection. Well, it would be technically double than that, i.e., 56 kbps. So, you should not worry about it much.

Additionally, there is no relationship between data and voice regarding usage limit. Since calls on Jio network are made on LTE, which makes it use data packets only to connect calls to the other or similar network. Though, do make a note that one month limit comes out to be 120GB. By mathematics it may be true, but by reasoning, it isn’t as the data usage restriction is by per day but not a month.
