Not long ago, most of us used to pay about Rs. 250 on average for 1GB of data, irrespective of the network that we were on. There were some exceptions, but not so much that we jump to that offer with ease or without a second thought. Now, thanks to the entry of Reliance Jio network in the market, every network has bent down. Literally, so much that what we used to get per month is now going to be available per day, and you just need to pay a bit more to add the free calling as a benefit.
There is a lot hidden behind those SMS messages sent by the networks about the new offers. You now know how much is hidden in those T&Cs, and if you don’t stop the data charges from your main account, 1GB of excess data usage can cost you Rs. 4000 (Idea and Vodafone) to Rs. 8000 (Airtel).
