In an effort to widen its customer base, Reliance Jio has come up with another new offer which will surely attract you. The new telecom provider Jio has recently launched a 100% cashback offer with JioFi 4G router, as the company tries to attract users of dongles, data cards and wifi routers offered by rival telcos.

Mukesh Ambani-owned company has come up with two plans.

Reliance Jio exchange offer

According to the reports, The first plan in the below offers is ideal for all existing dongle users whereas the second plan is ideal for laptop users, 2G/3G phone users and tablet users.

Offer – 1:

The users will get a 100% exchange offer where they have to exchange their existing data card, dongle or hotspot router at any Jio Digital store or Jio Care store. The users will get 4G data worth Rs 2010 against the device exchanged.

To get JioFi router, the customers will have to pay Rs 1,999 and will have to do a mandatory first recharge of Rs 408, which is Rs 309 for the plan which ensures freebies for 84 days and Rs 99 for a Jio Prime membership.

In this case, the customer pays Rs 1,999 minus the Rs 2,010 worth 4G data, which translates into zero cost and the device with the internet connection can be considered as almost free. However, the Rs 408 mandatory recharge is the additional cost which the user will have to pay in order to avail the services.

Reliance Jio Dongle

Offer – 2:

The users are not required to exchange their data connections. The JioFi is available at Rs 1,999 after a first mandatory recharge of Rs 408 (Rs 309 + Rs 99) but they get 4G data worth Rs 1,005, which translates to an effective cost of Rs 994 (Rs 1,999-Rs 1,005).

Reliance Retail currently has four JioFi devices running in the market namely JioFi 1 Router, JioFi 2 Router, JioFi 3 Router, JioFi 4 Dongle. With the first plan, the telco is trying to capture the market of rival telcos offering dongles, data cards, and wifi routers, since the exchange scheme will encourage existing dongle users to shift to Jio’s services, say experts.

The spokesperson says that by offering free data in the second plan to the first time users or users willing to keep multiple connections, the telco is looking to expand the subscriber-base for its JioFi routers.
