Reliance Jio has eased the data restrictions on its Rs. 149 prepaid plan, which now offers unlimited data at 64 kbps after your 2 GB allocation for the 28-day validity period has been used up. Previously, customers had to use a top-up voucher to continue internet services. The post-FUP speed is still half what you get with other Jio plans, but it will help those in situations where you would be cut off.

In other Jio-related news, a representative of the telecom operator has confirmed that the maximum duration of a single call on its network is five hours. The limit is only for a five-hour call for Jio customers, meaning you can call your friends for several hours as long as they all stay below that threshold. If Jio subscribers exceed that limit on any given day, all outgoing calling services will be restricted for the rest of that day. Then, to recover calls, users need to top up Rs. 149.

I have been blogging since August 2011. I have had over 10,000 visitors to my blog! My goal is to help people, and I have the knowledge and the passion to do this. I love to travel, dance, and play volleyball. I also enjoy hanging out with my friends and family. I started writing my blogs when I lived in California. I would wake up in the middle of the night and write something while listening to music and looking at the ocean. When I moved to Texas, I found a new place to write. I would sit in my backyard while everyone else was at work, and I could write all day.
