It will be the second time Jio will increase its tariffs in recent month
Jio will soon increase its tariffs following the contemporaries Airtel and Vodafone. Vodafone broadcasted its date i.e on the 1st of December from when the users will experience the price hike in the service. Airtel another giant of the telecom industry will also raise its tariffs but did not specify the date just announced by December they will charge users.
“As per media reports, we understand that TRAI is likely to initiate a consultation process for revision of telecom tariffs. Like other operators, we will also work with the Government and comply with the regulatory regime to strengthen the industry to benefit Indian consumers and take measures including appropriate increase in tariffs in next few weeks in a manner that does not adversely impact data consumption or growth in digital adoption and sustains investments,” Jio’s statement read.
Neither of the telecom drivers has specified of which utility the price rise will be enforced but it’s for all the users i.e postpaid and prepaid consuming the services. Airtel and Jio broadband prices will also rise. The assumptions are such there will be no expensive rates but yett no telecom operator has specify on the rates and detail on it.
The data charges and call rates in India are comparatively low in the world and even if the price rises it’s not going to steep.
When Jio increases the prices of its postpaid and prepaid plans, this will be the second time in recent months that Jio consumers will be paying increased rates. Recently, the company started charging 10 paise per minute for cellular calls as it is paying that money towards the “interconnection charges”. There are deliberations by TRAI to do away with interconnection charges but for now, they need to be paid.
