Reliance Jio’s entry in the Indian telecom space has revolutionized the data space significantly. Now, most prepaid and postpaid users get unlimited data and free voice calls with their plans. With the wireless mobile subscriber market reaching saturation, all the major telecom players are shifting focus to wireless mobile broadband service. Jio still leads here with its JioFi device and now, Airtel has revamped its own product portfolio to challenge the Mukesh Ambani firm. Bharti Airtel has now revised its 4G hotspot plans and is reportedly offering more than 500 percent data than previously offered with certain plans.

Airtel had revised its 4G hotspot plans and with the revision, customers now have option for only Rs 399 and Rs 599, which avoids confusion and makes it easier for customers to pick a right plan. Telecom Talk notes that earlier Airtel would offer a total of ten different plans for its hotspot device in the market.
