Jio Offering Free 8GB 4G Data Till May 29th
Reliance Jio, one of the most famous telecom providers in India is celebrating the end of IPL Season 11. The new season of the Indian Premier League concludes this Sunday on May 27th and the telecom provider is giving away 8GB 4G data for free. The add-on offers 2GB of additional data to Jio users and the offer will be valid until May 29th. Earlier in the year, Jio unveiled a new Jio IPL 2018 pack which gave users 2GB of 4G data per day for 28 days at Rs 251.
The Cricket Jio Pack worth Rs 101, wherein users get 2GB of 4G data is available for free as an add-on for select Jio users. The add-on can be seen under the My Plans section of the MyJio app. The company has laid down a process to avail this offer as of now. With this pack, users get 2GB of free data every day from May 25th to May 29th.
It is worth noting here that the company is rolling out this pack for free to select users. Once the 2GB data is consumed in a day, the user’s other subscribed packs kick in for the rest of the day. The 2GB data, although a part of the Cricket Plan, can be used for any other purpose such as browsing, streaming other content etc. Calls and SMS benefits, however, are not a part of the plan.
While Jio has certainly revolutionised the streaming habits in India, other telecom providers are also ready to go toe-to-toe in terms of data offers. Airtel and BSNL offered data packs to consumers to stream cricket. Recently, the CSK-SRH qualifier stream saw a staggering 8.26 million concurrent viewers logging onto Hotstar, setting a new global benchmark. With India still being a developing nation and data speeds not as fast as some other western countries, this is a huge achievement on the road for a digital India.
