Reliance JIO is now Unlimited to 4GB per day



Reliance Jio, the 4G administrator from Reliance Industries which as of late propelled business operations has now begun moving existing beta users who have taken Jio SIM under Preview Offer to recently dispatched ‘Jio Welcome Offer’, under which clients can appreciate boundless free advantages with 4GB information limit for each day till the end of the year.


Unlike Jio Preview Offer, the new Welcome Offer comes with a 4GB high speed data per day limit, so existing customers wouldn’t be able to get true unlimited data on Jio’s fast 4G network like before. However, if anyone crosses the data limit, he/she can enjoy unlimited data at much lower speed of 128 Kbps. While, other benefits will remain same in Jio Welcome Offer and existing users can enjoy true unlimited voice calls to any network, SMS (100/day) and free access to Jio premium apps like JioTV, JioCinema, Jio Music etc.

Why is Jio charging only for data and giving voice free ?

Following is something which is currently circulating on whatsapp, we no way confirm its authenticity.


There is a technical explanation to it.

Jio has only 4G capability and no 3G or 2G. Other existing operators have all the three.

The existing operators transmit voice over 2G and 3G and 4G is used only for Internet data. But on the other hand Jio uses a technology called VoLTE where even the voice is transmitted as data packets over the 4G network.

Please note this is different from mobile data which is only for mobile internet – technically this transmission of voice through 4G is called Packet switching. Means packet switching is different from Mobile data which is only for mobile internet . This is the reason why even if one switches off mobile data in a Jio connection, calls are placed.

If your phone is not VoLTE enabled you will be able to make Calls only if you download the Jio app.

While the Jio technology is superior and latest, a Jio user ends up using huge additional data for every voice call he makes.

Thus in Jio one uses data for voice and Internet …..

So on Jio be prepared to consume high amounts of data and this is precisely Jio’s catch….and that is why Jio charges for only data…
