We had earlier noticed that from September 5th, users will not be able to get unlimited full-speed 4G data on their Jio Welcome Offer SIM cards. It would be a limit of 4GB for high-speed 4G per day, and then you will be able to access the Internet at speeds of 128 kbps.

Now that you are getting the Jio Welcome Offer sim for no cost, getting even that amount of data is good enough. But then, this won’t be a good thing for JioFi users, because they paid to get the dongle and while buying, it was said that there will be unlimited data at 4G speeds. Is Reliance offering the same amount of data cap for JioFi device users as well?

JioFi 2 Dongle

Fortunately, we could confirm it with the Reliance Digital team here in Hyderabad that for the SIM cards that are activated for JioFi devices, the plan is different and you won’t be facing any data limit or cap, and you can download unlimited data during the period of Welcome Offer, that is going on right now until 31st December.

After that, it will be one of the plans that you will have to subscribe to, in order to continue using the Jio SIM, and we are not aware of any special data plans meant only for Wi-Fi hotspot users. So, from January 1st, you might end up with either the Jio Prepaid Plans, or the Jio Postpaid Plans.

Are you someone looking to buy the JioFi device and already has the question in your mind? Rest assured, the dongle works quite well and has a decent battery life. Also, the capacity to give good speeds to multiple devices will be helpful if you are planning to do that. Check out JioFi review to know more.

The JioFi 2 unit was earlier launched for Rs. 2899, and while several users were awaiting the activation of the SIM cards for their devices, Reliance has now reduced the price of the same dongle to Rs. 1999, which is a disappointment to those who are still waiting to see their devices activated.
