Few important points
Your 3G/4G data will not be carried forward. This means if you have consumed only 100 MB of 1GB daily allotted data then remaining 900 MB will not be added in next day’s quota. After you exhaust 1GB, base tariff rates will apply.
Jio 309 Vs Airtel 244
Airtel is charging 65 Rs less than Jio dhan dhana dhan offer and delivering almost same facilities as Jio. If Airtel 4G coverage in your area is better than Jio, then it will be wise to go with 244 rs plan. Idea is also planning to do comeback with 297 Rs pack that will give its users 70 GB data along with free calling minutes.
Do We Really Get Unlimited Free Calling?
Although Airtel says you get free calling with 244 & 399 unlimited plan, it is not true at call. Airtel is just like any other company which tricks users with terms & conditions.
244 Plan : Here you get 300 minutes calls/day while there is weekly quota of 1200 minutes. If you go beyond the limit, it will cost you 10 paisa per minute.
399 Plan : It has same benefits as 244 plan + you get 3000 calling minutes to any other network.
