Reliance has been hiking the price on its data rates since its inception. With a total of 130 million users on its network, Jio is trying to add more into their network through their new schemes and devices (JioPhone). However, the thing is if they are still giving value for money compared to the other data operators who have been in war with Jio for offering cheap data rates.
