Well, the new Idea 4G prepaid plan 109 offers unlimited calls and 1GB data but the plan purely doesn’t matches with the tariff plan of Jio. Here is Why it is not worth to compete with the Jio Plan 98. Check it out.
Details of Idea Prepaid Plan 109
First of all, lets know what the new Idea Prepaid Plan 109 is offering. In the 109 plan, you will get unlimited calls. All calls are free in this plan and users will not have to pay anything for the calls. But if you exceed the daily and weekly calling limit in the Idea 109 plan then there will be charges. The plan offers unlimited roaming calls.
The catch here is the daily and weekly calling limit. The plan comes with 250 daily free minutes of calling and the weekly calling limit of 1000 minutes. Don’t go beyond this otherwise, you will be charged as 1 paisa for 1 second for calls. Furthermore in this plan users will get 1GB 4G data usage.

Jio 98 Prepaid Plan Vs Idea 109 Plan
Well, the reason behind all company’s launching unlimited plans under Rs.100 is one and only Jio. Jio last month revised isJio 98 plan and started offering 2GB data with free unlimited calls. But is we compare the Plan 109 of Idea with Jio then once again Jio 98 plan is worth Plan. As of now, Idea 109 plan is not an open market plan and in some states, the plan offers 28 days validity while in some states it offers 14 days validity.
The second thing is the data usage. Plan 109 of Idea offers only 1GB data while the Jio 98 plan offers 2GB data with 4G speed and after the usage of 2GB, unlimited data is there with low speed. There is no weekly or daily calling limit in the plan of Jio. But in case of SMS the Idea 109 is a step ahead from Jio as it is giving daily 100 free SMS while the Jio plan 98 gives only 300 total SMS for 28 days.
