The Welcome Offer is technically a beta testing program for select Jio users. Again, the invitation is only for Jio users in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, and Varanasi.
What are the prices and plans of Jio 5G?
Jio has not yet revealed the prices or plans of its 5G plans. Jio will likely announce the price of its 5G plans once 5G is rolled out widely throughout the country’s major cities. We can expect more details on the same by the end of this year.
In the meantime, Jio says that users can enjoy the beta testing of the 5G network with the Welcome Offer in four cities, including Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, and Varanasi. Users in these cities with a 5G phone will be automatically updated to the 5G network for free. However, you must have a valid active base plan of Rs 239.
A Welcome Offer is not something new for Jio. To recall, we saw a similar approach by Jio at the launch of Jio 4G in 2016. A similar Welcome Offer allowed users to enjoy 4G services for 90 days.
