Aircel introduces a WiFi Connect system for home, Would you buy one at Rs5999?

Aircel has introduced “Aircel Home” which is essentially a Wi-Fi solution for home. It is basically a WiFi Hotspot that lest you connect to the internet from all the nook and corner of your house. This router is equipped with a High Gain Antenna that captures signals more efficiently than the conventional modems and then literally works like a Wi-Fi router.

Aircel WiFi Connect

The Aircel home has a Sim card slot just like any other dongle and once we put in the Sim connects to the internet and at the same time acts like a 3G hotspot. This router is run by an external power source which means that if you ever find yourself in dark because of power cut then you will also not be able to access the Internet.

Aircel Home is manufactured by Huawei and supports upload speeds upto 7.2Mbps and Downloads upto 5.76 Mbps. The price for this entire setup is Rs 5999 which is pretty high considering that you can get a usual broadband connection and a Wi-Fi router. Aircel is known for its poor connectivity and in that case it makes less sense to go in for the Aircel Home.

Yep, Aircel customer care is the worst of all customer care centers! Even if you go in person they don’t treat you well. They activate all kinds of shit which you don’t need and deduct large amounts regularly.

This is a very old offering from Aircel much before other companies started offering similar and cheaper alternatives

This was offered in Tamilnadu circle and not available in other circles (though listed on their web site). Have they started offering in other circles?

The Aircel eqpt, again another Huawei model, was for a different use case scenario

It has a port where in you connect a normal telephone instrument and it becomes like your landline phone. Plus WiFi router etc
