Festivities are around the corner and various e-commerce websites, as well as brands, are offering their products at a discounted price. On this note, Reliance has slashed the price of its 4G JioFi hotspot device by 50%.
The JioFi data hotspot device was being sold at Rs 1,999 and now after the discount, the price has been revised to Rs 999. The device will be sold at the discounted price from September 20 through September 30.
JioFi users will have access to the entire set of Jio services including unlimited 4G internet, HD voice and video calling, SMS and Jio apps such as Jio Cinema, Jio TV and more.
From September 20 onwards, JioFi will retail at Rs 999.
“The introduction of the festive offer will digitally enable millions of Indians, especially 2G/3G device users who will be able to enjoy Jio’s unlimited voice and data benefits on their existing device,” the company stated in their press release.
“With the limited period festive offer, JioFi will continue to transform the industry paradigm by revolutionizing the data card and dongle segment in the country,” read the press release.
The company is expecting that JioFi will be elementary in replacing wired broadband connections and might also gain popularity among 2G/3G users, who can enjoy 4G speeds with JioFi without the need to buy a 4G-enabled device.
Earlier today, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) also announced that Interconnection Usage Charges will be lowered from 14 paise per minute to 6 paise per minute and will eventually be discontinued. This, in turn, might bring good news for Reliance Jio subscribers. Read more on that here.
