Lockdown owing to the COVID-19 outbreak has forced people in India to work from home. Amid the present situation, Reliance Jio has introduced several plans for its customers that are aimed at helping people work swiftly from their homes. The company has not only doubled data and non-Jio calling minutes on its 4G pack but it has also introduced special Work from Home plans for its users. Now, the company has introduced a new Jio Data Pack for its customers.

According to a report by Telecom Talk, the company's Jio Data Plan offers 2GB data per data to the users. When users exhaust this limit, their internet speed will automatically reduce to 64Kbps. However, users will not get any voice benefits under this plan.
