Kolkata’s ISP: Meghbela Broadband – Tariff Details

For last few years, Internet becomes a very familiar name to India. But sadly, apart BSNL, no other Internet Service Providers(ISP) offers broadband (more than 256kbps speed) to users in remote areas. Eastern India’s metro Kolkata has BSNL, Airtel, Tata Teleservices, Reliance Communication & Sify as category ‘A’ ISP. But they all have limited coverage as wireline/Landlone Broadband Internet providers, while wireless Internet is still not affordable to most people. Meghbela Broadband, being a category ‘B’ Internet service provider is often out-of-media-coverage, covers the suburban areas of Kolkata well. Meghbela Broadband’s product ranges offer services in and around Kolkata, with customized packages to home users and business houses.

Unlike BSNL’s ADSL technology , Meghbela uses Cable technology, so you never need a telephone. Meghbela Broadband has its channel partner with Bharti Airtel Broadband & Telephony Services to offer Internet services.Meghbela has prepaid plans only, so no worry about shocking bills every month. Even you can recharge after some days of post-validity of your previous pack.

Meghbela offers Internet packs starting as low as Rs 111(+ S.T.). Only Meghbela offers carry forward of balance data usage(in case of limited plans) if the renewal is made within 3 days from the deactivation date.

Here is the Plan Details-:

  • Partha - Kolkata August 5, 2014 5:18 pm

    This is the worst internet ever. Peering only for some torrents. Night speed never happened and never existed. God Help me to Meghbela give up their own PMPL Broadband service.

    Worst Broadband Service Provider. Worst Customer service, Bad connectivity and worst by night after 10pm. Email me at ukthapa@aol.com, I will provide detail about their connectivity as I have all the detail and screenshot to prove what I have written here.

  • Sandip January 3, 2014 9:02 pm

    It is very sorry to say that at night the speed is upgrade only to 512kbps. But as per plan it will be upto 2mbps. I don’t like this broadband at all.

  • avik nandi October 9, 2013 6:10 pm

    is there any other cable broadband service provider in dumdum? i stay in dumdum ghosh para…pls inform…

  • Akhilesh August 14, 2013 4:37 pm

    I have taken meghbela connection with 450 plan. Speed is not upto the mark but the major concern is there service. I have complianed 3 times in just 20 days of uses. The local provider/service peson talks like govrenment employee and don’t care about customers. Above all they try to say that you are guilty and you have made a mistake by choosing them and you are under them, you have to obey them. It make me feel like I am an handicapt and can not do any thing.
    I have got very bad feedback several time from my international clients due to meghbela irregular service in just 20 days.

    WASTE OF MONEY

    • MR. A April 23, 2013 10:57 am

      Its not a “Waste of Money”.I have used Meghbela Broadband via cable operator at Amarabati,Durgapur(pin-713214) and it was pretty good in speed as well as QoS.Earlier i was a user of Night Rider plan which supprot 256kbps at day time and 2Mbps at night-the avg download speed at day time was around 30-32 KB/sec which is normal and the avg speed at night was 220 KB/sec(both idm and torrent) and one more thing that the speed upgrade is during 9pm –9am(its still available as my friend is using), though you need to re-log in to get that upgraded speed-what more u want with 400 Rs.?? 1 more thing i want to mention that i have used many broadband but some have disconnection problem after certain time but meghbela dont have such problem-i have used it 10-12 hours constantly for download yet no disconnection

    • MR. A April 23, 2013 11:03 am

      If anyone facing any problem like less speed with same package is due to local cable operators-they have started to cap the speed(like the speed@night which suppose to be 2Mbps during night time is capped by local cable operator and now its providing speed of 1Mbps@night)-but still with 400 Rs. its great to use this.

  • Partha Das March 10, 2013 7:55 am

    I want to know that Meghbela Broadband has any speed for torrent downloader ?

  • Niladri December 6, 2012 3:34 pm

  • Rajendra Prasad Shaw November 28, 2012 1:43 pm

    Hi i am living in a suburban part of kolkata where meghbala is providing service but i am looking for a better BB package and i am speed lover. I got to know about reliance bb where they are providing 2 mbps unlimited plan for just Rs 699(excluding service tax) but unfortunately my are doesn’t have the coverage of reliance bb. So as an alternative i see meghbala but when i checked the package detail, i found it to be very costly.

  • Mia Galioto March 22, 2012 9:52 pm

    Err mistake I get 64 kBps….128 @ night :P

  • TDutta January 11, 2012 11:38 pm

    The service is pretty good. Whenever you face any problem you can call them up and harrass them :D . Apart from recent technical issues ( which was very annoying) their service is far better, atleast from BSNL.
    Btw for those who dnt know, the speed that you see here is in BITS i.e. ‘b’. The speed you get is in bytes ‘B'; so to know the speed you will get, divide the by 8. Like I used 512 kbps, I will get 128 kBps. Hope it helps ye all!

  • sudesh mehra December 24, 2011 11:54 pm

    so fast service in this area.mr.pradhan and he will be also solve my pc problem .in no more cost.and friends mr.pradhan is so greatfull man.my package price is 400 rupes.256kbps and 8pm to 8am it will be done at 512 kbps.and the speed is too good.

    In dum dum 30a bus stand area meghbela broadband’s franchise is new mood cable centre. they does not obeys rules. suppose i am using jet classic worth rs 400+ service charge is 48(12%)total charges should be rs 448 but they charges us rs 500. this is such a cheat!!!!!!!!! as mr.Snehangshu Mandal said i agree with him.

  • Partho Pratim Bandopadhyay September 23, 2011 1:55 pm

    Hi! I am a user of Meghbela broadband since July 2009. Initially, the service provided by them was quite satisfactory. The service provided by them for the last 8-9 months is horrible. Following are the complains:
    (a) They don’t give any complain number.
    (b) They don’t have any Email Id for lodging complain. It shows that the company is not dealing transperantly.
    (c) After lodging complain, they take atleast 2-3 days to attend.
    (d) Once the call is made to recharge the pack. it is not done. Repeated reminders are made to recharge. At times it is recharged after 3 days. Therefore, the accumulated balance data usage expires, hence the user is in loss due to the fault of service provider.
    (e) At times there is a confusion between the service provider and the meghbela broadband customer service that who will take the complain. The user has to make the call between both of them for rectification of the complain.
    (f) I personaly feel that we are cheated by the company paying Rs. 2300/- initially for connection charges which is non-refundable. Switching over to some other network is possible, but loosing an amount of Rs. 2300/-
    It is therefore, requested to the customers in use of the Meghbela broadband to circulate the misdemeanour by the company. Since 16 Sep 2011 till date, there is no network in my PC and neither the service provider is attending my call.
    In view of the above, I request all the users not to avail the facity of Meghbela who are seeking to connect with Meghbela broadband.

  • Snehangshu Mandal August 9, 2011 12:55 pm

    ********Poor quality of service by Meghbela Broadband at Kolkata.****************

    They are charging extra by their franchisee. Service is very bad, even you will not get any response from them if you do not have any connection for 30 hours. Helpdesk response is very poor, no SLA for any Incident.

    I am from Dumdum (near 30A Bus stand) and using the plan Jet Classic for last 2.5 years. the charge mentioned in the site (http://www.meghbelabroadband.com/package.html)and Catalog is 400 + Tax = approx 448.00 (If service tax is 12%) but the local cable operator(Mr. Tarun of New Mood Cable Connection)is charging me Rs.500 every month from last 2.5 years for the Jet Classic package. When I have report the same to the Helpdesk#033 4040 1100, they informed they can not do anything for this as this is the matter of local cable operator. When I request them for the escalation matrix for this desk, they informed me that they do not have any escalation matrix.

    My point is that, local cable operator is your franchisee and when you are providing the Internet service under the banner of Meghbela Broadband so you should control about all this thing and you can’t ignore it like that.

    Hi

    I wanted to know whether Meghabala provides internet connection in Liluah or Serampore or not ? if yes than please let me know. As i read that Meghabala covers the suburban areas of Kolkata as well. So please let me know as soon as possible.

  • Goutam July 3, 2011 12:50 am

    Airtel network never provide service at rated speeds, which I would term as cheating, Alliance and Reliance WiMax provide higher speeds than what they rate. Alliance Customer Support is very prompt, with Airtel you always have to shout and escalate! Infact Reliance Broadband is very much consistent with speeds. I am using my connection for 2 years with absolutely no complaints.

    Note: High latency will always come with Wifi.

    As for everyone, I’m using Meghbela connection for past 2 years in Salt Lake wifi zone. Apeart from small probem of high letency it is very very good. I used BSNL, Allience, Relince before this but nothing except the comartial service provided by Airtel can beat it. :)

    yeah…..i’m using it from last 6 months……and it’s worse than every connection available in kolkata…..most of the tome it stays “Destination host unreachable” (when i try 2 ping my gateway)….and they clear my line every time i contact there helpline….but it stays functional for a week or less….this is worse than a data card…..and that midnight speed up is a joke….it wouldnt work everyday…..and when the connection stays functional u’ll get lots of “Request timed out” (When u’ll ping ur gateway),so u’ll never get smooth connection…… i’m using JET Classic package….. =(

  • Arnab Upadhyay February 19, 2011 1:18 am

    I’ve been using Meghbela Broadband connection since the middle of the yr. 2010. I was really happy with the connection..But this yr. I’m having umpteen problems with this service.. the connection is getting worse…….. so I’m confused… what should I say..The connection is good or bad……. b’coz last yr the service was absolutely fine… :( :P :)

  • Sourabh February 2, 2011 12:35 pm

    Give me more information of meghbela broadband.

  • soumya October 22, 2010 11:46 pm

    megh bala broadband is the worst connection i ever seen… they provide you service through local cable operator. my cable operator take extra charges for the recharging… for example i pay 500 for the plan of rs 400 (with tax 441) and for the plan 300 i have to pay 400. if you call meghbala help line they say that cable operator can take extra money.. so I think you you can understand what kind of service they provide you…

  • Anbu John Boban October 7, 2010 8:11 pm

    cool :) connection and plans are good even asianet gives like this @ kerala :D

  • Arnab October 7, 2010 7:53 pm

    It’s really really a good connection… I’m using the 256kbps unlimited connection of Meghbela since last 5 months…and I’m really satisfied. I admit.. that from 12am to 8am…I’ve expected to get a speed of 2mbps or at least the half of it.. but I get much lesser than that…I get a download speed around 80 to 100 kbps…(i.e: around 800kbps bandwidth speed instead of getting 2mbps)but I’ve no complaint against it because I think I’m lucky to get that extra speed..and I’m really happy with it…
    But I was thinking about to change the plan to 512 kbps… but when saw this Tariff Details I’ve changed my mind… I really wanted to change plan from 256 to 512 kbps… but I think the rate is unexpectedly high (i.e: Rs. 1100/month), which is next to impossible for me to pay! I request Meghbela ISP authority, to reduce the rate of 512kbps unlimited plan if possible. Please consider the customers’ need.

  • c roy September 29, 2010 9:32 pm

    meghbela is very slow. most of the time painfully slow. i have been experiencing for the last 3 months. i cannot connect during office hours. can they solve this problem?

  • Partha July 28, 2010 5:39 pm

    Meghbela Broadband is a very very worst service provider. They have no proper man power, no proper technicians. The Meghbela Broadband kept my deposit money. When you take new connection the sales persons say that the installation money you will refund when you leave Meghbela Broadband connection. But actually they can’t do this. The connection also have full of virus and sometimes download speed stuck. Their technicians dosent even know how to handle mouse, my 2 mouse is damaged. The company is a most 3rd class, chitingbaj company and F…… company.

    I use their service(256kbps UL plan). I live at the southern part of kolkata & believe me it’s really a true VALUE FOR MONEY broadband service in kolkata. They give whatever they promise and their customer care is also very helpful. I even called them at 1AM night and there were the CCE to help me out from my problem. In night (12-8am) I usually get 0.6 to 1.3 Mbps speed. Qudos to u guys….keep up the good work.

  • Prasath J January 28, 2010 11:55 pm

    Only Meghbela offers carry forward of balance data usage(in case of limited plans) if the renewal is made within 3 days from the deactivation date.

    WOW… VERY NICE… Is there any possibility of them starting BB services in other circles as well???

  • vinay January 28, 2010 10:59 pm

    in case of limited usage plans, just check up before going for any isp whether they r charging only for download or for upload also. players like mtnl counts only download, but upload is free whereas others count both down/upload in their usage.
