Reliance Netconnect+ – Postpaid:
There are 3 types of plans in Reliance Netconnect+ post paid segment:
- Unlimited Usage Plans
- Speed Based Plans
- Time Based Plans
In unlimited usage plans, you can select silverplus, goldplus and pltnmuplus depending upon your usage. The monthly rental is ₹950, ₹1100 and ₹1500 respectively.
Do remember that 3.1 Mbps speed is for a certain limit only and thereafter the speed will decrease to 144 kbps with unlimited usage.
|Plan||Monthly Rental||Free Usage @ speeds up to 3.1 mbps||Usage beyond bundled usage @ speeds up to 144 kbps|
The second type – speed based plans comprise low speed – low monthly rental – high data usage plans that are divided into day and night timings. Day timings otherwise known as peak hours are calculated from 6 am to 10 pm.
|Maximum Speeds||Monthly Rental||Total Free Usage||Day||Night|
|Upto 384 kbps||Rs. 750||35 GB||15 GB||20 GB|
|Upto 256 kbps||Rs. 500||23 GB||8 GB||15 GB|
|Upto 150 kbps||Rs. 400||15 GB||5 GB||10 GB|
With regard to time-based plans, daily 120 plan is a better option that comes with a monthly rental of INR 750 will give you 3600 min of usage.
|Daily 60||Rs. 500||1800 min|
|Daily 120||Rs. 750||3600 min|
|Day & Night||Rs. 950||3600 min Day / 5400 min Night|
Reliance Netconnect+ – Prepaid:
If you are considering Reliance Netconnect+ prepaid option, then you should first recharge with INR 100 that gives you 5 GB data usage with 30 days validity. There are many recharge vouchers available in different denominations namely 5 hr pack, 10 hr pack, 25 hr pack, unlimited pack etc.
You can even migrate from postpaid to prepaid provided you stick to postpaid for a minimum period of 3 months. The best thing about Reliance Netconnect+ is that it provides national roaming facility with wide coverage in 24,000 towns across India.
What’s your Take on Reliance Netconnect+?
Personally I do use Reliance Netconnect+ services as it is more reliable and faster than any other wireless internet. Enjoy maximum speed up to 3.1 Mbps and minimum of 150 kbps (depending upon technical feasibility) with Reliance Netconnect+.
Reliance Jio & Impact on Telecom Industry:
With the entry of Reliance Jio, the telecom industry has witnessed a massive disruption. The competitive data tariff plans introduced by Reliance Jio has even triggered consolidation in the telecom domain. The Vodafone India and Idea Cellular agreed to merge thereby creating the largest telecom company in India.
Similarly, Bharti Airtel acquired Norwegian Telenor’s India unit. Anil Ambani-led Reliance Communications has signed a deal to merge its wireless business with Maxis Communications holding Aircel.
Initially, Reliance Jio started the commercial operations by offering free services. Starting 1 April 2017, the Mukesh Ambani-led telecom company kept up the pressure with its competitive data tariff plans making all voice call free including roaming-free.
