The much anticipated 4G VoLTE service will offer data tarrifs at never before prices and make voice calls completely free, unprecedented in the Indian market.

Ambani said the tariff was based on three pillars: one, the customer should play for only voice or data; two, data must be affordable; and, three, pricing structure should be simple. So Reliance Jio won’t charge for voice calls, data prices will be what Ambani calls the “cheapest in the world” and there will be just 10 tariff plans to choose from.

To start with Reliance Jio data packs will start for as low as 5 paise per MB adding up to Rs 50 for 1GB, a fraction of the cheapest data plan in India at the moment. Reliance Jio will offer data packs ranging from Small (S) to XXXL. The small plan starts at Rs 149 for 0.3GB data along with access to 100 SMSes. There’s a Medium pack which comes at Rs 499.

    In Kuwait for 13 KD (Rs 2500) you get 1TB and for KD16 (Rs3200) Unlimited 4G. That should be the cheapest by far.
