As the telecom wars get more and more fierce, looks like there’s no stopping Jio.
In a latest, as per Reliance Jio’s website, the company will now start to allow it’s customers call international numbers at a super low cost of Rs.3/minute. This would be available only after you make a recharge of Rs 501 as part of its ISD rate cutter plan.
According to this plan, international calls to places such as France, Pakistan, Israel, Japan, Argentina, Denmark and South Korea will be charged at Rs 4.8 per minute. And calls to countries such as US, UK, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Sweden, Switzerland and Taiwan, will be charged at Rs 3 per minute.
This is the lowest known international call rates publicly announced by any Indian telecom company so far.
Not that there aren’t any cheaper ways to call internationally, but lower official rates are always good. I have a feeling this will go even lower from here.
Let’s wait and watch!
