Now Jio doesn’t offer unlimited 4G internet data in any of its data plans. You get limited 4G data for daily usage as per the data plan you have subscribed to. If you have exhausted the daily 4G data usage limit, your internet speed will be reduced to 128 kbps.
It’s better to track your data usage so you don’t experience any interruption in Jio 4G internet service. This tutorial will guide you how to check your Jio 4G data balance. We will also discuss how you can monitor data usage on your phone.
