Exclusive : MTNL Renovates All BroadBand Plans, 512Kbps is Minimum Broadband Speed From Jan 26

In an attempt to provide enhanced value proposition to the customers, Mumbai’s largest Broadband Service provider Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd (MTNL) today increases the minimum speed of Broadband to 512 kbps from exiting 256 Kbps.

Broadband Revolution In India.

MTNL becomes the first Internet Service Provider (ISP) in India who opt minimum Broadband speed from 256 Kbps to 512 Kbps, without the mandatory regulation. The last broadband revolution in India started in 2004 when telecom regulator TRAI labeled the minimum speeds to be 256 Kbps for Broadband connections when all Private ISPs were offering just 64 Kbps as broadband in India.

Minimum 512 Kbps Broadband Speed For All :

Now all MTNL Broadband subscribers in Unlimited and Limited plans (256 Kbps/320 Kbps) will get minimum of 512 Kbps, without any additional cost effective from tomorrow i.e. 26 January 2012 The Republic Day of India.

If you remember, We at TelecomTalk exclusively shared this good news on 20th January that MTNL is all set to Say Bye Bye to 256 Kbps speed on Broadband and going to opt 512 Kbps minimum speed for all Broadband connections from this Republic Day.

MTNL’s Unlimited Broadband Plan, More Speed – Same Price :

MTNL’s Truly Unlimited Broadband plan (without any FUP) users under Plan-395, Plan-495 Combo will get increased speed of 512 Kbps (existing 256 Kbps/320 Kbps), while in Plan-599 new speed will be 752 Kbps (existing 608 Kbps) without any extra charges.

Apart from Truly Unlimited Broadband Plans, 2 Mbps Xpress Unlimited Broadband plan-600 users will get Download speed after 8 GB to 512 Kbps (existing 256 Kbps). While In Freedom-297 & 497 plans, download speed after bill-cap increased from 256Kbps to 512Kbps.

Closer of Non Popular Broadband plans for New Customers :

The existing non-popular Broadband volume plans – DSL_Trib49, DSL_200P, DSL_399, TriB_599, DSL_749, DSL-249-Combo, DSL_Combo_B_499 & DSL_Combo will be closed for new booking and plan change effective from 26 January 2012.

Peeyush Agrawal, Executive Director, MTNL Mumbai,

Speaking On this new initiative , Mr. Peeyush Agrawal, Executive Director, MTNL Mumbai said, “ MTNL is number one Broadband service provider in Mumbai and also second largest in India with more than 5.5 lacs customers in Mumbai circle.

This customer friendly step has been pro-actively initiated by MTNL to give the customers faster broadband experience without any extra charges and affordable rates.”

    BSNL md learn some business tactics from MTNL md.

    Man BSNL is a country wide operator.MTNL is only a metropolitan city operator. so that their operating cost is very less. Bsnl operates in so many remote places. so that operating cost per user is very high when comparing with other operators. Still Bsnl is providng services in cheap rate comparing with pvt. operators which are working only in big cities(only in high profitable areas). Still Bsnl is working for updating their plans.Already they updated some plans and updating work is going on in some places. Please give some time to them. Still BSNL hold more than 70% market share in Broadband market. This shows that so many users like Bsnl plans. So don’t compare Bsnl with Any other operator.

    Please mention here about Rs. 50/monthly charges as a modem rent for all plans of Broadband for Mumbai subscribers.

    Modem charges is optional service not essential. Customer can use their own modem MTNL allows that and all Broadband customers knows all this things very well. News is for new tariff plans or speed up-gradation not for ‘Modem’ only. kal ko ye mat bolna ki service tax bhi mention karo ;)

    Kindly bring to MTNL’s Notice where the World of Broadband is Going with 10 Mbps and 12 Mbps speeds..
    And try to reduce Tariffs and Improve Service Queries, feedback and redressal to Consumer’s issues..
    I Surrendered my 12 year Old Landline connection and 6 year Old Triband Connection due to poor service from MTNL for last 2 years..
    I Hope Many Users will learn flaws in MTNL services.

    After surrendering your 12 year old Landline connection and 6 Year old Triband connection which operators services you are using? Is the new one better in terms of speed/prices/quality of service? Since how many days are you with the the new operator?

    it has been 1.5 yr nw..had kept it secondary but after surrendering triband 4 months back its my primary ISP..
    Very good in terms of speed and services..
    Affordable plans and bandwidth upto 10 mbps

    @Tap
    yes i am also a big fan of MTNL Broadband but what to do BSNL introduces all bad plans. BSNL will increase the speed of plans which they like but MTNL is willing to increase the speeds in all plans. BSNL Broadband is also good compared to other PVT operators but if we compare with MTNL. BSNL is the worst.

  • Rap January 25, 2012 3:06 pm

    Kolkata also should be managed by MTNL, becoz Kolkata is also a metropolitan city.

    Dear Kalpesh, Before commenting comapre their Broadband tariff with other ISPs in Mumbai and Delhi.

    MTNL is second largest Broadand service provider in India and operating in just 2 circles.

    MTNL already offering the plans with 10 to 50 Mbps in their VDSL Broadband service in Mumabi and Delhi. If you want more speed than be ready to pay for that.

    I personally using MTNL Landline and Broadband both and no issue at all.

    Just for ur information, MTNL adding more than 70,000 new ADSL wire-line customers per year in Mumbai circle and far ahead from all other Broadband service provider in this circle.

  • Saurabh January 25, 2012 2:11 pm

    I feel in order to compete, 3G operators should come-up with at-least night unlimited plans. Speed based plans will also be a boon for users. Idea is taking steps but not enough.

  • ravi shekhar January 25, 2012 2:11 pm

    karann :
    plans should be like these:-
    2mbps unlimited- pay 500 rental
    3mbps unlimited- pay 600 rental
    4mbps unlimted- pay 650 rental
    10mbps unlimited- pay 800 rental
    20mbps unmited – pay 1000 rental
    NO FUP whatsoever

    Not a bad !dea.

  • Esmail January 25, 2012 2:08 pm

    I am more interested in the speed upgrade by MTNL for 3G subscribers, they gave free upgrade from 3G to 3.5G and now I am hoping they will further upgrade to 3.75G also without any additional charges to current 3.5G subscribers, since they have declared their intentions of upgrading current HSDPA to HSPA+ network upto 28.8 Mbps. in the next 9 months. They should keep 4 speed slabs and charge the tariff accordingly
    1) Downlink upto 7.2 Mbps
    2) Downlink upto 14.4 Mbps
    3) Downlink upto 21.6 Mbps
    4) Downlink upto 28.8 Mbps

    Current subscribers should be upgraded from 3.6 Mbps to 7.2 Mbps at the same existing tariff, and the subsequent speed slabs should be charged increasing tariff as suitable.
