Reliance communications has reportedly launched a new STV (special tariff voucher) for its 4G users. Going a step further to encounter the unlimited voice calling packs of Reliance Jio , RCom has recently launched its unlimited voice calling plans. This Voucher is priced at Rs. 149 with a 28 day validity and offers the same benefit of true unlimited calling to any local/STD/mobile/landline without any cap as Reliance Jio has announced.In this plan of Rs 149 named Data Combo Pack, Reliance Communications is offering truly unlimited voice calls to any network local/national with 300 MB 4G Data which is valid for 28 days. Howeveer, Jio is offering Unlimited voice calls to any network in India (local/STD/landline) during roaming along with 100 free SMS for 28 days in Rs. 149 Pack.
Reliance Communication 4G launched in India
This Data Combo Pack is offering Free incoming calls during Roaming (National). But it doesn’t offer Free Unlimited SMS like Jio is offering. The difference here though is that it does not include the free 100 SMS which are bundled in Jio’s plan nor does the plan claim to offer the free unlimited outgoing calls while in national roaming unlike Jio’s offering. It is clear that the company’s intention behind the launching of this offer is to prevent the churn of its low revenue usersegment and increase their stickiness.
RCom’s 149 Data Combo Pack
The other major fact to be examined while making the conclusion should be the underlying technology. Jio is offering HD Calls via VoLTE network which connects instantly, and gives you a crystal clear voice calls. As per the latest news, RCom can not offer HD calls to its customer as it doesn’t have a VoLTE network till now. One major advantage RCom users have over the Reliance Jio users is that they wouldn’t need a VoLTE capable device to avail these benefits.
So if you have a 4G (VoLTE) supported handset then Jio is better to choose over RCom. Although, if you don’t have a 4G supported handset right now and don’t planning to buy in future, then you should move to Reliance Communications.
