Now if we talk about the Jio's ISD and worldwide roaming plans then we can that its cheaper than other networks because it is offering global calling (ISD) starts at Rs. 0.50 per minute to U.S. and Canada, and go up to Rs. 2 per minute to Bangladesh, China, France, Italy, New Zealand, Singapore, and United Kingdom; Rs. 3 per minute to Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Turkey; Rs. 4 per minute to Australia, Bahrain, Pakistan, and Thailand; Rs. 5 per minute to Germany, Ireland, Japan, Kuwait, Russia, and Vietnam, and finally, Rs. 6 per minute to Israel, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, UAE, and Uzbekistan. The new postpaid Rs 199 plan announced by Reliance Jio is expected to hit revenue of competitors marginally may trigger tariff war in the segment, according to market analysts.

Both the Rs.575 and the Rs.2875 packs offer 250MB of data usage per day while the Rs.5751 pack offers a total of 5GB of data for the entire 30-day period.

Refuting the allegation, Airtel in a statement stated that the DoT was duly notified about product features, network architecture, and a lawful interception prior to the launch of the Apple Watch Series 3 Cellular edition and considered the complaint as frivolous. Jio says that the service never stops, anywhere in the world.

The prices, however, have blown the competition out of the water. Users will also be able to roam internationally without paying any additional security deposit. While there were postpaid plans from Jio, none of them was as attractive as their prepaid counterparts.

However, Reliance Jio will have to struggle harder in the postpaid segment as most users in this category value quality of service over price. All the calls including local calls, STD calls, and roaming calls are free in the postpaid plan of Jio.

If the user plans to use the ISD services without any active plan, charges under Jio Postpaid will start from Rs 2 per minute for voice calls, Rs 2 for every MB of data and Rs 2 for every SMS. The plan comes with Pre-Activated ISD. Hence one needs to up the rival's offer in every step.

Worldwide calling (ISD) starts at Rs. 0.50 per minute to US and Canada, and go up to Rs. 2 per minute to Bangladesh, China, France, Italy, New Zealand, Singapore, and United Kingdom; Rs. 3 per minute to Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Turkey; Rs. 4 per minute to Australia, Bahrain, Pakistan, and Thailand; Rs. 5 per minute to Germany, Ireland, Japan, Kuwait, Russia, and Vietnam, and finally, Rs. 6 per minute to Israel, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, UAE, and Uzbekistan. The internet speed will be throttled to 64kbps once past the FUP limit. The Jio Postpaid service will begin from May 15. The new Jio Postpaid Plan 199 directly competes with Airtel plan 299 and 399.
