    Pretty sure Jio is the best compare to these greedy operators like Airtel and IDEA. As the matter of fact we (customers) could not able to forget there robbery like 1GB@300 rupees. Now we are not at all ready to believe them again. I left these operator and never turned back again no matter what ever happened like incumbent issue created by these greedy operators. They lost faith of customer. To make profits they harassed customers with high rates just like banks are doing now a days. Jio is one of the hope to customers they never leave jio specially person like me.
