By February 25th, 2017 AT 1:26 PM

Of late, Airtel has been working hard to bring new offers to the consumers primarily to combat Reliance Jio as well. Till date, we have seen various offers from the India’s largest telecom network in the mobile data and voice calls space, but now the company is vying to take on the rivals with its 4G Hotspot device.

Airtel has slashed the price of its much popular Airtel 4G Hotspot device from Rs. 2,300 to Rs. 1950. Airtel recently cut down the price of the same hotspot device to Rs. 999, but that pricing was limited only to Kerala circle and later on hiked the price to Rs. 1699.

Airtel has partnered with the Chinese smartphone vendor, Huawei to manufacture the product and the Wi-Fi hotspot device sports a 1500mAh Li-ion Polymer battery and can handle up to 10 devices at a time. Also, the device is rated to deliver six hours of battery life, and it takes a little over four hours to fully charge. Interestingly, the device will switch back to 2G or 3G network, where there is no scope for 4G connectivity.

With this price cut, the Airtel 4G Hotspot is the cheapest hotspot device in the market right now. The close competitor to Airtel is Reliance Jio’s JioFi device, which is priced at Rs. 1999. The JioFi 4G Hotspot has a 2300mAh battery that is rated to deliver over six hours of battery life and can connect up to 10 devices.

The advantage with JioFi is that you can make HD voice calls even on a 2G/3G device by installing the Jio4GVoice app for free from Google Play Store.

Apart from Airtel and Reliance Jio, we have Vodafone India with their Vodafone 4G Mi-Fi device selling at Rs. 2399. This device also boasts of the same battery as the Airtel 4G Hotspot and can deliver up to six hours of battery life.

Notably, both Airtel and Jio are delivering the devices to your doorstep with free shipping cost. Nevertheless, the delivery service is limited to only some areas such as Bangalore, Hyderabad, etc.
