But is the JioFi worth Rs 2,899?
Well, there are many WiFi routers out there for much lesser price. But with Reliance JioFi, you will get a Jio SIM for free and will be eligible for Reliance Jio’s Preview offer.
Jio Preview Offer is an exclusive preview of Jio 4G services. As a part of the Offer, you will get unlimited high-speed data, HD voice, SMS services, along with a host of premium apps like JioPlay, JioOnDemand, JioBeats, JioMags, JioXpressNews, JioDrive, JioSecurity and JioMoney.

But if you already own an LYF handset or one of the eligible Samsung device, you don’t need to buy JioFi as you are already eligible for the Jio Preview offer.
