Reliance Jio a few days ago introduced its festive celebration offer under which the users were able to get the JioFi Wi-Fi dongle for Rs. 999. Originally the JioFi hotspot dongle sells for Rs. 1,999. The offer was supposed to run from September 20 to September 30, however, the offer didn’t end as scheduled and the company has extended it for a few more days. The company hasn’t revealed for how many days it has extended the offer and the site only shows that the offer is valid from October 1. The offer is only valid for the JioFi M2S model. Below is the tweet where the company is announcing the extension of the offer.

Recently CyberMedia Research conducted a study in the second quarter of 2017 which states that all of the models of the Reliance JioFi combined make-up around 91 percent of the data card market thus beating the likes of Alcatel, ZTE, and Huawei which were previously the leaders in this market. The company credits this success of the JioFi device to the offering of free data services to the public.
Users can purchase the device both online and through a Reliance Digital Store. After the purchase is made they will get a new Jio SIM card along with the device which will be activated when the device is being handed over to the customer. The JioFi M2S is backed up by a 2,300mAh battery which the company claims will last up to 5-6 hours on a single charge.
