Airtel recently had reduced rates of its 4G plans to 3G level. Now yet another move from Airtel to push its 4G internet. Airtel has slashed rate of 4G USB dongle to Rs 1500 as special offer.
One of the main reason people stayed away from Airtel 4G was due to high cost of 4G modem and expensive plans. At the time of launch, USB dongle was Rs 7999. Now Airtel has reduced both to 3G level. Interestingly Airtel has reduced cost of 4G USB Dongle only. 4G WiFi router still cost Rs 4000. Airtel wants to push 4G to mobile Broadband users.
As Reliance Jio is all set to launch 4G in the next few months, Airtel has become aggressive with its 4G service. Airtel 4G LTE is currently available in Kolkata, Bengaluru, Pune & Chandigarh. Airtel is set to roll out its 4G in Mumbai and Delhi after acquiring 4G license from Qualcomm.
