Reliance Jio’s Rs 251 and other work from home plans you need to know
Even as millions of people are staying indoors and working remotely, telecom companies have announced a bunch of offers. Last week Reliance Jio launched a special work from home plan for its prepaid subscribers in the wake of Covid-19 lockdown. Priced at Rs 251, the plan is valid for a period of 51 days and gives 2GB data per day. In total users get 102GB data.
Under the Reliance Jio’s Rs 251 work from home plan, users don’t get any SMS or call benefits. It also excludes complimentary access to Jio’s premium apps.
That said, Reliance Jio isn’t the only service provider to offer special benefits for people working remotely due to the Covid-19 lockdown.
State-run telecom operator BSNL has launched a special work from home for its fixed line customers. The ‘Work@Home’ plan is available to all landline customers who don’t have broadband connection yet. Under this plan, BSNL is offering 5GB data per day at the speed of 10Mbps to all its landline users. BSNL has also introduced a scheme under which it is giving 1GB space per e-mail ID along with unlimited download and upload speed.
The broadband player announced a new free upgrade plan under which it has increased the speed up to 300Mbps for its users without any extra charge. Users can avail the scheme from the company’s official application. The scheme is available until the end of March 2020.
Airtel hasn’t announced special broadband or mobile plans for its users yet. The company, however, is giving free access to thousands of e-books on the popular Juggernaut Books. It has also launched a Covid-19 symptom checker tool.
