Reliance Jio Welcome Offer: Is it worth it?
Welcome offer Plans make sense and the freebies are additional incentives. We don’t expect people to be lining up at Jio stores for these TVs, but the extra 2 months of usage and the proposition of double data every month is quite lucrative. The decision would still be based on what internet plan that suits you best, and then perhaps you can consider the long term commitment.
Should you be excited about the free Jio HD and 4K TVs? That will depend on the quality of TVs that you’d be getting for free.
