How Does The Booster Plan Work
Now, many may be puzzled as to how exactly will this work, but we’ve got you covered. For instance, if you recharge with Rs 303 every month, Jio Prime members get unlimited voice calls, 100 SMS and data benefits of 1GB / day, after which speeds will be throttled to 128Kbps. The speeds are again restored post midnight.
Imagine a situation where you exhausted 1GB of your daily data by afternoon 3PM and your speeds get throttled. In this case, the booster plan will kick in and you can enjoy high-speed internet till 12AM. Now, when the speeds of daily plan gets restored at midnight, the booster plan will automatically get deactivated, until you don’t exhaust your daily limit of 1GB. One of the benefits of this plan is that you can enjoy high-speed downloads even when your daily pack limit is exhausted.
So, in a nutshell, with the Rs 303 plan, you get 1GB per day (up to 28GB in 28 days) and 5GB booster, making it up to 33GB. The Rs 499 plan gives you 2GB per day (up to 56GB in 28 days) and 10GB booster, making it up to 66GB.
