Reliance Jio’s 4G services are now live and for customers who sign up data and voice will be free till December 31, 2016, after which tariffs come into force. Jio’s 4G service will offer free voice-calling to customers, and claims to have the lowest data rates in the world starting at Rs 50 per GB. The plans are starting at Rs 19 and with free voice-calling. However, there’s a lot of fineprint text one needs to read to fully understand what Jio is actually offering.
Here’s a look at the terms and conditions of the Reliance Jio service, that one needs to consider before signing up for the service.
For starters, the Jio service’s voice-calling is free for sure, but video calls you make on the network will be debited via your data-calling pack. The plans start from January 1, 2017.
The free WiFi data benefit in your prepaid and postpaid plans will only work through public WiFi hotspots of Reliance Jio. A user needs to access and log-in on the Reliance Jio WiFi app to access these, after you have located an actual WiFi hotspot.
The deal about the “Unlimited at Night”, means data that is used between 2am and 5am. If you use beyond this, your regular data pack will apply.

On the Jio apps, the subscription is free for now, but any data used during these apps will be cut from your regular data pack applicable at the time. This also includes video calls. Interestingly, these Jio apps won’t work on non-Jio Networks, and you will need to be on Reliance Jio 4G to actually access these apps.
