Telecom operator Idea has launched a new plan 398 with 70GB data to counter Jio 399 plan that offers the same, 70GB data and free calling. The new plan 398 is launched by Idea just after it introduces the 309 plan with 28 days validity and 1GB data per day. Idea 398 plan is not now but it is a revision of the plan. Earlier in this plan Idea is offering 35 days validity.
Jio 399 plan offers 70GB data with free unlimited calls and SMS. So the new Idea plan 398 will definitely compete the Jio 399 plan. Users can check their My Idea App to know whether this plan is available for them or not. On the Idea website the plan still shows 35 days validity so maybe this plan is now active for some users of some circles. Here are the full details of Idea latest 398 plan. Check it out.

Jio 4G 399 Plan Vs Idea 398 Plan
If we see on both plans then it looks similar but there is a catch in the plan of Idea. In Idea 398 plan calls are not unlimited as there is a daily & weekly capping while Jio calls are totally free. Another big thing is data usage after the daily limit. After the daily data usage limit, the data will stop or you will be charged but in Jio 399 plan there are no such conditions.
