Mumbai: Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd, India's largest telecom provider, announced a series of new unlimited plans set to take effect on July 3.

The company emphasised its commitment to affordable internet access and highlighted its rapidly expanding 5G network, which now includes nearly 85% of India’s operational 5G cells.

The new tariff plans range from Rs 189 for 2 GB per month to Rs 3,599 for a 2.5 GB per day annual plan. All plans with 2GB/day or more will include unlimited 5G data.

The plans with longer validity periods have seen the highest price increases. The annual package, previously priced at Rs 2,999, will now cost Rs 3,599, resulting in an additional Rs 600 expense for customers. In contrast, the smallest price increase is Rs 34 for the cheapest plan, which costs Rs 155 and has a validity of 28 days.

The company stated that its "True 5G" network is built on a standalone architecture, offering faster speeds and lower latency compared to non-standalone 5G networks.

Jio has played a significant role in driving data consumption and smartphone adoption across India, compelling rivals to lower tariffs and enhance data offerings.

Expanding its digital ecosystem, Jio also announced the launch of two new applications: JioSafe and JioTranslate.

JioSafe, priced at Rs 199 per month, offers secure calling, messaging, and file transfer. JioTranslate, priced at Rs 99 per month, uses artificial intelligence to enable multi-lingual communication by translating voice calls, messages, text, and images.

Jio is offering both applications free for a year to its users, further enhancing the value proposition of its services.

Speaking on the occasion, Akash M Ambani, Chairman, Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited, commented, “The introduction of new plans is a step in the direction of furthering industry innovation and driving sustainable growth through investments in 5G and AI technology. Ubiquitous, high-quality, affordable internet is the backbone of Digital India and Jio takes pride in contributing to this. Jio will always put our country and customers first and will continue to invest for India.”
