To take on the growing competition, Vodafone has lately been aggressively tweaking its mobile data plans. Both postpaid and prepaid users have benefitted from this strategy. Beyond mobile, the company has now turned its focus on the Wi-Fi devices sector with its latest launch.

Vodafone has quietly launched a new R217 4G MiFi device. This device is quite portable with dimensions of 87.6×59.6×12.9mm, and it weighs 78 grams. It is capable of letting 15 users simultaneously get Wi-Fi access with speeds up to 150Mbps, TelecomTalk reports. The device is capable of offering 150Mbps downlink, and 50Mbps uplink. It uses 800/900/1800/2100 Mhz bands for LTE connection, and 900/1800 Mhz bands for GSM.

The device boasts a 1,800mAh battery, which is said to offer up to seven hours of usage on one charge. There is also a microSD card slot with support for up to 32GB cards. As far as security is concerned, the MiFi device features WPS authentication besides the standard password protection. Users will also be able to keep a track of the Wi-Fi usage with the help of a Hotspot Monitoring app. The device is also said to come with an intuitive plug-and-play web user interface.

Vodafone’s move to launch a MiFi device is clearly with the likes of Reliance Jio, Airtel, and BSNL in mind. These companies too have been offering MiFi devices for quite sometime, and have now turned their focus to the broadband sector. Ahead of competition from Reliance JioGigaFiber, the likes of Airtel and BSNL have been tweaking their plans to stay competitive.
