Jio effect: Telenor now offers 56GB 4G data for Rs 47, conditions apply

India Today logo India Today 29-03-2017

Norway-based telecom company Telenor has come out with a new India-specific plan that offers 56GB of 4G data with a validity of 28 days for just Rs 47. Subscribers who opt for the plan can use a maximum of 2GB of data every day. Telenor says its new plan gives users 1GB data for a mere 80 paisa. Conditions, however, apply.

In addition the FUP, Telenor's new scheme seems to be an invite-only affair for now. The company is in the process of sending out SMS invites to eligible subscribers who can then decide to avail the same. Also, the scheme will be applicable only inside Telenor's circles, which means, not all people would be able to avail the offer even if they somehow manage to get the invite.

Telenor's new plan is clearly targeted towards Reliance Jio that is also offering something very similar for Rs 303. That being said, Jio services are available for use all across the country so more people can use it. At the same time, another thing to note here is that Telenor's 56GB 4G data for Rs 47 offers only 4G data, and no voice calling. In the case of Jio, subscribers can avail free unlimited voice calling over VoLTE no matter which plan they opt for.

It must be known that Telenor isn't new to such 4G data plans. It has, in the past, come out with offers like 1GB data for Rs 11 and 2GB data for Rs 147, but, unlike its new plan Telenor's previous offers were mostly around a per day basis. Its new offer, however, offers a monthly plan with per daily benefits.

Jio, meanwhile, is gearing up to start charging its subscriber base in the days to come, from April 1 to be precise. In the meantime, it has started a Jio Prime offer that gives subscribers additional benefits for a period of one year for a nominal charge of Rs 99.
