Once again, Reliance Jio hogs all the limelight. This time, the reason being the announcement that it would soon start offering benefits worth ₹3,595, namely bundled data and vouchers, to customers who would buy the JioFi 4G hotspot. Also, under this the new offer, JioFi 4G hotspot would be available with ₹1,999 along with bundled data worth up to ₹1,295 and vouchers worth ₹2,300 from AJIO, Reliance Digital, and Paytm. Also, the customers who do not want to opt for this offer, the JioFi device would still be available for ₹999, which is the same price it has been selling since September last year.
Under this upcoming offer, customers buying the JioFi hotspot device for ₹1,999 would get free data worth Rs. ₹1,295, they would be able to choose between plans with daily data allocation of 1.5GB, 2GB, and 3GB. The total value of the Paytm, AJIO, and Reliance Digital offered together would be worth ₹2,300. Now, with both of these combined, the buyer would now get a total benefit of ₹3,595 on buying JioFi hotspot at an extra price.
This new Jio offer is expected to become official later on, via the official website of the telecom operator. More details of the free data benefits and values of the vouchers for each company would likely to get revealed at that time.
Last year, Reliance Jio has dropped the price of the JioFi 4G hotspot from the original ₹1,999 to ₹999. That was a sincere move to convince customers to start using Jio as a network for their hotspot connection. However, the telecom operator has now brought the price back to ₹1,999 but giving more benefits to keep the users on its network. Airtel late last year has cut the price of its 4G hotspot to ₹999 to take on Reliance JioFi. In fact, the operator has also recently partnered with Amazon India to sell the Airtel 4G hotspot online in the country.
