If you're a new Airtel prepaid customer purchasing the Airtel 4G Hotspot at Rs 2,000, the company will not provide any cashback like it's doing for the postpaid users. Instead, Airtel seems to be offering benefits in the form of free data. Of course, with the Airtel 4G Hotspot device, you will not be able to make or receive voice calls, so it's just a data-only device. New Airtel prepaid customers activating the SIM card on Airtel 4G Hotspot will get 1.5GB daily data for a period of 224 days. "Offer is valid for 224 days, from 48 hours of Airtel sim insertion in the 4G hotspot device (New Prepaid activation only)," says Bharti Airtel.
