Airtel has announced new plans and pricing for its 4G Hotspot device. The company is now offering its portable 4G Hotspot for Rs 1,500 and has listed a couple of new plans on its website. One can now select either a postpaid or prepaid plan to go with an Airtel 4G Hotspot but there’s only one plan listed under each category. The new prepaid plan comes with 1.5GB daily high-speed data that is valid for 84 days, while the postpaid plan offers 75GB data for the duration of a month. While pricing of the two plans is not listed online, Digit has learned that when customers buy an Airtel 4G Hotspot device, they will get data bundled with it.
TelecomTalk claims that the postpaid plan is priced at Rs 499. The plan also falls under the unlimited pack category and after the allotted data is exhausted, it offers internet speed throttled at 80kbps. The same is applicable for the prepaid plan where a user will get to access the internet at lower speeds of 80kbps after exhausting the 1.5GB daily data that comes with the plan. The new plans come a couple of months after the company announced a 4G Hotspot plan at Rs 399 per month. While no longer available, it offered 50GB high-speed data per month after which the speeds were throttled to 80 kbps.
Back in December 2017, Airtel slashed the price of its 4G Dongle to Rs 999, down from Rs 1,950. Airtel’s 4G Hotspot device creates a Wi-Fi hotspot to which 10 devices can connect simultaneously. As per the company’s website, the device can deliver up to six hours of usage on a single charge and also supports 3G and 2G connectivity options. Airtel’s portable hotspot takes on Jio’s JMR 1140 4G hotspot device, which is also available for Rs 999. It also supports up to 10 devices at once and gives access to Jio’s 4G LTE network, along with making VoLTE calls.
