Reliance Jio dropped a bomb in the telecom market a few days ago by offering Jio Summer Surprise offer that essentially offers Jio services for free for another 3 months. Now, Idea is hitting back. And it is doing so with an offer called Data Jackpot, which will give all post-paid idea users 10GB 4G data per month at a price of Rs 100. This will be for three months, after which users will get 1GB data at the same price. The first three months of the Data Jackpot look nice. The months after that not so much.
Idea users can avail the Data Jackpot offer through the app. If they don’t have it on their phone then they will have to install it.
With the Data Jackpot, Idea also hopes to counter Airtel and the Vodafone that are giving free extra data to their post-paid users. While Airtel is giving 10GB per month free data for three months, from Vodafone the offer is fir 8GB data per month for 3 months. Neither Airtel nor Vodafone are charging for this “extra data”. But Idea is.
Idea said that customers opting for this offer will get a minimum of 1GB to a jackpot of 10 GB data per month, for first 3 months. The offer is available for subscription for a limited period only. Postpaid customers who wish to avail the offer need to apply through the My Idea app available on Android Playstore and iOS.
Telcos are in a price war with Jio since it first launched in India last year in September. After Happy New Year offer and Jio Prime plan, Reliance recently announced a new offer called Summer Surprise to woo customers. The Summer Surprise, which requires a user to take Jio Prime membership and do a recharge of Rs 303 or higher, extends free Jio services for another 3 months. Summer Surprise offer will cover the duration from April 1 to June 30, which is three months.
