Asianet launches high speed Broadband plans with 20Mbps speed

Kerala’s leading cable and broadband service provider Asianet has launched new high speed broadband plans with speed up to 20Mbps in Trivandrum and Cochin. These new Xtreme plans start at Rs 375 per month for 8Mbps and Rs 1625 for 20Mbps.

Asianet also launched unlimited high speed Dart plans which offer up to 15Mbps unlimited with FUP at Rs 4999. Asianet also offer double usage on some plans for subscribers with their digital cable service Asianet Digital TV.

Asianet Broadband Plan Details

Asianet always tailor its plan against BSNL broadband which is their main competitor in the state. Their plans are always faster and cheaper than BSNL. Till now only BSNL had high speed VDSL 24Mbps plan with 250GB at Rs 6999 per month. Asianet offer 20mbps at just Rs 1625 for 20GB, which is very affordable for anyone who needs to feel the change in speed.As we move towards high speed era of 3G and 4G it is high time for traditional broadband to catch up.

    Yet any Mockery of Customer Service from Kochi Asianet Broadband team.

    I had connectivity issues every other week with your broadband connection. I called up your Kochi customer center, few minutes back, Support Exec told me that non connectivity was due to Line Issues”. I fail to understand why ADL has ‘Line Issues’ every other week. Moreover, customer support desk are experts in parroting this message time you call them. And they are rude (esp the lady I spoke to) and was not even willing to escalate the call to her supervisor, when I felt that she was giving convincing response. I don’t know if this is typical SOP of ADL or an issue with this Executive.

    So friends, be prepared for the worst when you have ADL non connectivity. Let God Bless all ADL customers.

    Asianet is just a costly bullsh*t, They sucks like bsnl in the case reliabilty.

    For home user, bsnl broad band is one and only way. It is not easy to leave without a seconday connection.

    Why all broadband providers in kerala sucks like this ?

    I wish we could have better providers as in banglore or hydrabad :(

    I had raised 4 different complaints in 4 days to asianet customer care. At first they said it takes a day to resolve, then it becomes 2, then 3 and still im counting. The speed is not great and if it rains, then you better have another backup connection. Never ever become an asianet subscriber.

    really this asianets plan is bullshit one.better go with bsnl,even if the speed is low ,there is no cap for the data.and if just imagine to think of an IPTV,Lot of operators has to come in the business of broadband sector like Ireland,there minimum speed of a broad band connection is 40 mbps and we will get 60GB data for near INR1000.

    I am using minimum 60 GB data in my 512kbps TRULY unlimited connection… Well, 20GB can be finished in just a day or two in 20Mbps connection, imho…

      Hai,
      I want your suggestion on what type of a connection I can take for my 4th std boy. We have an old lap of 512MB. Can I use Internet on that for his project activities.

    Asianet is notorious for their plans, support and connectivity. Have to consider the fact that 20 Mbps are not available with all service providers in Kerala. As someone above commented, 20 Mbps plan with a 20 GB cap is good for nothing and is better not to have it. One of the user who signed up for this plan has posted a detailed comment about his experience on Telecom Talk facebook page : facebook.com/TelecomTalk/posts/10151510918830303

    What! Who puts a 25GB cap on a 20Mbps connection? I will burn through that, in less than a week.

    The FUP limits just don’t make sense. Better to go for BSNL 2700 plan with 8 Mbps and 60 GB cap.

      20Mbps broadband plans are not that common in India and most time expensive. I don’t see any company providing it at cheap rate of Rs 1625.

        20mbps is fancy, what use is it with a 20gb FUP, a 5 or 10mbps plan would be much better unless one is downloading HD movies like the world is ending :P jokes apart the FUP on this plan is ridiculous…
