Reliance Communication (R-Com) has launched a new tariff model for its pre-paid customers, which offers unlimited talktime for a flat monthly fee. The ‘Simply Unlimited CDMA’ offer is available in two flavours:
Simply Unlimited CDMA Local Pack: The local pack offers unlimited local calls to any Reliance phone (CDMA, GSM and Landline) as well as virtually unlimited local free calls to any other network. STD calls to any network will be charged at Rs. 0.50 per minute.
Simply Unlimited CDMA National Pack: The national pack offers unlimited calls (STD as well as Local) to any R-com phone in India, along with virtually unlimited calls to other networks.
The Local pack costs Rs. 299 per month, while the STD pack is available for a monthly rental of Rs. 599.
Most of you are probably wondering what R-com means by virtually unlimited calls. It is nothing but a misleading PR jargon. According to Medianama, what Reliance actually means by virtually unlimited calls is that subscribers will be getting 30 minutes of free calls per day or 900 minutes of free calls per month. If you exceed the 30 min of free talktime/day, you will be charged at Rs. 0.50 per minute.
