    Nothing they only making fools to us. they hiking the price upto 30 % prepaid plan get hiked 458 to 590 nothing speed increment…..When u hiking the cost provide services atleast, 1 person complaining regularly 7 complain in a week. But nothing happen…..Once come to hiking the cost thinks about your excellent services…..If hiking atleast increase the speed as well.

    This information is completely misguided…The existing plans of MTNL remain the same what they have done is they have relaunched and revised all the old plans which were closed…For eg. DSL 450 and 550 were closed a few months back when MTNL launched 1mbps broadband…..And the revised plans are far better than the closed old plans…So broadband has become cheaper not costlier…Say earlier u were getting 1 kg onion for 10 rs. and now u get 3 kg for 20 rs. is that costlier ? Think for yourself and edit this post…Dont tame MTNL when they have done everything right so far

      Fully agreed…. whenever MTNL increases tariff also subsidizes it with offering some more speed….

      Haha.. yes, I was about to say the same thing! The headline sounded ominous and I was wondering if I’d have to go for a cheaper plan, but upon reading this, it looks like for just 50 bucks more we’re getting a slight speed bump! :D
