Reliance Jio 4g is finally launched on 1st September 2016. It is India’s first ever VoLTE Network. With its inception, Reliance Jio has announced their tariff plans as well. And they are not-so-cheap like it sounds.
In fact, the Reliance Jio tariff plans are quite diplomatically made which will equally lure users to join their network and ultimately end up spending more money on them in the long run.
Watch out for yourself!
In the following post, I will discuss the Reliance Jio 4g VoLTE Tariff Plans with Cost in details, including calls, SMS, Combo Vouchers, Plan Vouchers, Top Up Vouchers and the Jio Premium Apps.

An important point to note, Reliance Jio is a 4g only network. It is not available for 3g phones, and won’t be available for them in the future ever.

Everything that Reliance Jio Changed:
Well, this is fun as well as informative section regarding Reliance Jio. Here I tried to give you a rough sketch of the features of Jio and the endless possibilities you can achieve using Jio.
- The era of making Missed Calls is over! Yep, now your Girlfriends will directly call you, and you don’t need to call back. Because of its Jio Fever.
- Ratecutters are gone forever! No more doing ‘power’ recharges to reduce calling rate to seconds pulse. It’s free now!
- No more Blackout days on Diwali, Good Friday, New Year, etc. Now call and wish anyone freely.
- Thanks to Jio Premium Apps, you can now watch Live TV on the go for free. Yes, HD Channels too.
- Watching sports while traveling on bus and trains is now possible with JioTV. Even for long distance routes, Reliance Jio ensured that their network remains uninterrupted and has the highest coverage.
- Why leave out the USA TV Shows and Movies? Jio Users will get Hotstar Premium Subscription Free of Cost. Now that’s cool. [Hotstar Premium is coming soon on Jioplay]
- Last but not the least, Reliance Jio has shaken the major telecom operators like Vodafone and Airtel. In fact, they will be losing the entire money which they used to earn via calling service. The Internet is also costly in their network, so they need to bring down the rates to compete with Jio, which will result in further loss. Their only hope is 3g handset users. But soon most 3g users will shift to 4g if this continue.
- Reliance Jio is India’s first ever VoLTE network. It comes with HD Calling with super awesome call quality. VoLTE supported phones will work best with Jio. However, general 4g phones will also work well and able to make VoLTE calls using the JioJoin app.
- Other telecom operators have introduced, 4g, but, their calls are still made on 2g and 3g networks, which costs much more than 4G networks. Reliance Jio can offer Free Calling as VoLTE Technology is real cheap!
- Existing operators run 3g and 4g over old 2g towers, but reliance jio is built on high-quality 4g towers, which is future-proof to support 5g technology when it launches in near future. Existing operators need to freshly install 4g towers to support VoLTE, which Reliance has already completed.
- In future, Reliance Jio is going to bring Fiber Internet with speeds up to 1 Gbps. The cost will be cheaper then, because of the fiber technology. Wait for that day!
- Keep your taxes cleared: Reliance Jio paid Rs7286 crores of Income tax this year to become the highest taxpayer in the country on the private sector.
- In 2011 spectrum auctions, Infotel Broadband Services Limited (IBSL) won broadband spectrums in all 22 states. Later that year, Reliance bought IBSL and at that time they started building this dream network which is now LIVE. Yeah, Rome was not built in a day.
