    I don’t understand how writer of this post is comparing 1 GB / day with 1 GB / 28 days. This does not make any sense. Comparison can be possible when both provides same data and calls per day.

    1. Vishal says

      No it’s not 1GB per day. It’s Jio’s 2GB a month vs Airtel’s 1GB a month. Kindly read the para carefully. You will get the other details of the respective plans there. Thank you!
