With Covid-19 cases once again surging and curfews being implemented in various states, a lot of us are once again reluctantly returning to our homes with offices again implementing remote work policies. The last time this happened, we saw broadband speeds take a huge hit and fall drastically. At such times, a lot of us would simply turn on our mobile hotspot and continue to work, but that along with our phone’s daily data needs would eat up a lot of our daily data limits. Hence in such times, it is recommended to get a data pack with more data than you already use. India’s current average data plan currently comprises of the 1.5GB daily data plan, which is why we feel that 3GB of daily data is enough to hold you through the day.
