Reliance Jio vs Airtel vs Vodafone

The concept of combo plan that Jio started in India has spread wide, and now every operator is offering similar plans. The combo plans are available with a validity of 28, 70, 82 84, 90, 91, and 180 days, and today we are comparing the combo plans of Jio, Airtel, and Vodafone that have a validity ranging from 82 days to 91 days.

Cheapest combo plans with 82 and 84 days validity

Reliance Jio’s Rs. 399 plan is the cheapest plan with 84 days validity followed by Airtel’s Rs. 448 plan and Vodafone’s Rs. 458 plan. However, while Jio and Vodafone are offering 84 days validity, Airtel is offering 82 days validity.

All the three plans have similar call and SMS benefits including unlimited local calls, unlimited STD calls, unlimited roaming, and100 SMS per day. Jio’s plan in spite of being the most affordable has the highest data on offer, i.e. 126GB, which is limited to 1.5GB per day, while Airtel and Vodafone are offering 1.4GB data per day. Due to the lower validity, the Airtel’s plan has 114.8GB of total data on offer, while the Vodafone’s plan has 117.6GB of data.

Looking at the similarly priced packs from the three operators, Reliance Jio once again offers the highest benefits. The Reliance Jio’s Rs. 448 plan has 168GB of data on offer while Airtel and Vodafone are stuck with 114.8GB and 117.6GB of data.

The Reliance Jio’s Rs. 448 plan makes for even more value for money when you consider its free subscription to Jio’s services like Jio Cinema, Jio TV, Jio Music, Jio Mags, and Jio Cloud.

Coming to the sub Rs. 500 plans, Jio offers the highest validity of 91 days, followed by Vodafone with its 90 days validity, and Airtel still lacking behind with 82 days of validity. The Jio’s plan also has the highest data on offer, which is a whopping 182GB (2GB per day), while the Airtel offers 164GB and Vodafone offers just 126GB of data.

All the plans also offer unlimited local calls, unlimited STD calls, unlimited roaming, and100 SMS per day.

Reliance Jio Rs. 449 plan

The Reliance Jio also has Rs. 449 plan apart from its Rs. 448 plan. The Rs. 449 plan has more validity than the Rs. 448 plan, but it has lesser data on offer. The Rs. 449 plan has 91 days validity and 136GB of data on offer, opposed to the 84 days validity and 168GB data from the Rs. 448 plan. 

As you can see, the difference between the data on offer between the two plans is much higher than the difference between their validity. So the Rs. 448 combo plan has more value for money factor, and according to me, it is the one people should opt for.

Vodafone Rs. 511 and Rs. 569 plans

Vodafone also offers two additional plans, which the Reliance Jio and Airtel don’t. The Rs. 511 plan has 168GB of data on offer opposed to the 126GB data from its Rs. 509 plan. However, it has a validity of 84 days, which is lesser than the 90 days validity of its Rs. 509 plan. The Rs. 511 plan from Vodafone is similar to the Rs. 448 plan from Jio.

Coming to the Rs. 569 plan, it has the highest data on offer among all the combo plans under Rs. 1,000 across all the operators. The Rs. 569 plan has 252GB of data with a limit of 3GB per day. So, if you are a heavy data consumer, this plan from Vodafone suits you the best.

Looking at all the plans from the three operators, Reliance Jio stills leads the way. Apart from higher validity and data on offer at every price point, Jio is also offering its services for free. Although, Airtel and Vodafone are not too behind either.
