I suddenly received an offer on my 10 year old Airtel number; 1 GB per day, unlimited calls for 84 days @ Rs 399.00. Thanks to Jio effect I guess.

Coverage and quality differs from area to area.
You have to check locally in your area and make a decision and do not go by reviews from different locations.

Try other alternate ports like 26. Many ISPs block them, not Jio alone.

Jio network is now available at Kasara railway station in Maharashtra (on the Mumbai - Nashik rail route).

I had been complaining to Jio regarding this issue due to the issues I faced constantly due to this. Vodafone would get network in Kasara but not Jio. I even ported out of Jio (to Vodafone, and ported my Vodafone to Jio ) due to this. Jio apparently took this Port-out to heart and added a new tower in Kasara.

Yesterday afternoon was the first time I used it, after asking for the same since November; within 10 days of porting out.

Hi guys,

I'm on Airtel in an iPhone 6s bought in Swiss. The network and data are fine when I'm at work (sholinganallur) but when I'm at home, both voice and data are not so good indoors. I have to come to the balcony to have uninterrupted calls. I live near Annanagar East. Now thinking of porting to Jio. Can anyone in or around Annanagar provide me a feedback on Jio's coverage?

Thanks.

After reading this article I went to the Jio outlet near my home to purchase the WiFi Hub.

I have an older hub but since it would be kept constantly charging, the battery bloated and by the time I got around to replacing the battery, it was out of warranty.

A new battery would cost me Rs 650+ and I rationalized buying this new hub by convincing myself that paying Rs 350 odd more, i was getting a newer hub. My old sim plan will run out in a month and I do not intend renewing its plan.

Details of the new Hub purchase.

Cost of Hub: Rs 999
Prime Membership Fee: Rs 99
3 month prepaid plan: Rs 399
Total: Rs 1497

I asked if the 3 month plan was 1 gb per day and was assured this was the case.

The newer hub is smaller in size to my older hub. Battery was charged for 3 hours as advised by sales representative and then I set up all my devices to this WiFi

Below is the speed test result of the new hub.

Hope this helps members looking to buy a new or replacement wifi hub.

I have no commercial interests in Reliance Jio or RIL.

To moderators, kindly delete this post if it is inappropriate. thank you.

If you are in home or office and put it constantly on power, I suggest you to remove battery, connect to USB charging and continue using it. I am doing it since last 6-7 months and it is working great.

You can insert battery when you plan to take it out. Your battery will remain good for a longer time.

@ mukeshgoel, Thank you for this suggestion. Will do this from now on for the new hub.

My old hub is currently being used without battery and on 100% electrical power and working well. Only cannot take the old one on battery.

This is the speed I'm getting on Airtel 4G. Pathetic!
I expected a lot better than this.
At nights only the speed is good.

Need to buy a secondary Jio connection. Are they still giving Prime membership on a new connection?

Yes they are, but the prime membership is valid till 31st march only, and not a year.

I have a post paid Tata walky (wireless landline), and last month I got an sms saying that the plan will be changed from Rs 200 + tax to Rs 400 + tax. When I called the toll-free, they say it's not possible to convert to pre-paid, and that I am free to cancel the connection. Reason - Reliance (competitor) has stopped issuing new wireless landline connections temporarily, until the formalities for forming a wireless sub-company is completed.
