For a lot of telecom subscribers, a different way to connect to the internet is through a Wi-Fi hotspot device. Owing to the availability of devices like the Airtel 4G hotspot, or the Jio-Fi, it has become more comfortable for the customers to connect multiple devices at once to the internet. Now given the market situations, and to lure more customers, we have seen Airtel revise and simplify its plans for the 4G hotspot device. However, even with this new revision, the subscribers did not have any other option. But this time Airtel has introduced a new data benefit for the buyers of Airtel 4G hotspot device.
Airtel 4G Hotspot Data Benefit Explained
It is worth noting that before the introduction of these two new plans for the users of Airtel 4G hotspot device, Airtel was only shipping the Rs 399 prepaid plan for the users which was offering 50GB data per month. After the exhaustion of data, the speed was throttled down to 80 Kbps. Although the plan was an excellent offering for a lot of subscribers, it was the only one that the customers could opt for. But, with the new revision, there are two plan options available for the customers. The benefits of either the postpaid or the prepaid plan will be available for the customers who purchase the Airtel 4G hotspot device for Rs 1,500.
As part of the additional bundled offering with Airtel 4G hotspot, the postpaid plan which is available with the Airtel 4G hotspot device is the Rs 499 infinity postpaid plan. The benefits of this plan include 75GB per month data FUP with an after FUP speed of 80 Kbps. To avail these data benefits, the subscribers will have to recharge the hotspot number with the Rs 499 infinity postpaid plan by going to the nearest retailer or Airtel store. Similarly, Airtel 4G hotspot users will get the other option of recharging with a prepaid plan which will offer 1.5GB data per day for 84 days. The after-FUP speed on this plan is the same as above, i.e. 80 Kbps.
