Reliance Jio has launched a plan offering customers JioFi 4G router in exchange for old data card, dongle or hotspot router. The company is set to release two new plans. Users will get a 100% exchange offer where they’ll be required to exchange their existing datacard, dongle or hotspot router at any Jio Digital store or Jio Care store and 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 like JIO Dhan Dhana Dhan plan in mobile which ensures freebies for 84 days – and Rs 99 for a Jio Prime membership. Therefore, the customer pays Rs 1999 minus the Rs 2010 worth 4G data which translates into zero cost for the customer and the device with internet connection becomes 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.
Second plan, Customers should buy JioFi at Rs 1999 after a first mandatory recharge of Rs 408 (Rs309 + Rs99) but they get 4G data worth Rs 1005 which translates to the effective cost of Rs 994 (Rs1999 – Rs1005). Users need not exchange their existing data connections for this plan.
While Reliance Jio hasn’t officially sent a press release regarding the new plans, it has confirmed the offering on on its official Twitter account.
