Since the launch of 5G, Jio and Airtel have been providing Unlimited Free 5G Data to their new users on their 4G recharge plans. However, this is going to end soon as the companies are planning to rollout new 5G Recharge Plans which will be upto 20% costlier!

Jio & Airtel Free Unlimited 5G Ends Soon!

Airtel and Jio will Launch 5G Recharge Plans by July 2024. These new 5G plans will have prices increased by minimum 5-10%. To compensate, Airtel and Jio might give you 30-40% more data. Possibly, by September 2024, prices will be at a minimum 20% hike! You can save on these with Airtel Recharge offers and Jio Recharge offers.

Both Telecom Conglomerates have an ARPU (average revenue per user) of ₹200/month. After the hike it is expected to change to ₹250/month. Thus, you will need to shell out somewhere around ₹30-₹80 more per month for your Mobile Prepaid Recharge. For instance, the popular Jio ₹666 1.5GB/day quarterly plan might go up to ₹750 (₹84 more) for the new 5G plan.

Airtel and Jio are ending the Free 5G Service to increase their RoCE (return on capital employed) by a minimum of 20%. Also, the Telecom Service Tariff in India is around ₹165/month which is the Lowest in the World!


India currently has 125M 5G users. With upcoming dedicated 5G services, Airtel and Jio are planning to up this number to 200M by the end of 2024. Other telecom operators in Vi and BSNL do not have a 5G network till date!

Last mobile recharge tariff hike was done 2 years ago in November 2021 which was 19-25% by Vi, Airtel, and Jio. Let’s see how this new move unfolds in 2024!

FAQ's

1. What is the Last Date for Free Unlimited 5G on Jio and Airtel?

Probably 30th June, 2024

2. If I do an annual recharge now, will Free Unlimited 5G work for the entire 2024?

Yes, until the new 5G plans are announced.

3. I have an existing Free Unlimited 5G plan so will it stop working?

No. Those who have already recharged with Free Unlimited 5G plan will enjoy the same till their existing plan expires.

That depends on how generous ambani is, i think they would stop that immediately that's why it's called complimentary free 5g , they did the same on launch time back in 2016, many bought their stupid jiolyf smartphones thinking they will get unlimited plan for a long time, but that didn't work

There is no voice only pack. You can go for limited data to get at low price. I do the 395 pack for 3 months (84) days. 1 month one will cost you more while yearly price is same as 3 month plan price when calculated per month. Thus, 395 pack is best pick. It gives total 6GB data which is enough for Whatsapp text, some videos, browsing, online payments, etc.

You should have 5G mobile and recharge a pack which has 'unlimited 5G' tag on Jio app or website. It will be valid till pack expires. You can recharge on any platform (Amazon, Flipkart, Paytm, Mobikwik, etc).
