Exclusive: MTNL To Revise All Broadband Plans, Now Minimum 512 Kbps Speed on Broadband From this Republic Day

Finally here is a great news for Broadband Subscribers in Mumbai and Delhi, India’s 2nd largest Broadband Service provider Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd (MTNL) all set to Say Bye Bye to 256 Kbps speed on Broadband from this Republic Day i.e 26th Janurary 2012.

TelecomTalk’s exclusive sources confirms that MTNL is going to upgrade the speed of all its existing Unlimited Broadband plans (256 Kbps/320 Kbps) to a minimum of 512 Kbps, without any additional cost in Mumbai and Delhi both circles from 26 January.

Currently, existing MTNL Broadband customers who are using Truly Unlimited broadband plan without any Fair Usage Policy (FUP) with 256 Kbps and 320 Kbps speed would have their plans upgraded to a minimum speed of 512 Kbps, while those on 512 Kbps and some other plans would have to get more speed from their current plan.

So now what do you think regarding the new free Speed Up-gradation for Broadband customers by MTNL ? Do you think other operators will also follow MTNL’s move what is your take do let us know via comments.

    How to get a MTNL mobile connection in naigaon without the network automatically changing to useless BSNL?

  • Jack May 23, 2012 2:01 pm

    This Good thing is being Observed that BSNL Network is weak in is’t Home Network.
    At Naigaon the Services is Provided by Bsnl.but we can’t even 2 baars.Thanks to Mtnl that due to More Towers at bhayandar Coastal areas.that half Naigaon Area Serves Nice Network upto 3 to 4 bars.

    @Vipul
    yes pvt operators will not follow this until the near future.

  • Vipul January 23, 2012 10:05 pm

    I m happy with the move…a very gud move by MTNL..pvt players wont follow the same…..

  • Raghu January 22, 2012 10:06 pm

    @Kunal
    Very good news that MTNL has started working but BSNL is not working to that extent til now. I do not know why this is happening. Mr Sanjayji and Mr Jitendraji are doing their best to make BSNL work same as MTNL. Hope it will yield results very soon.

  • Kunal January 22, 2012 3:08 pm

    @sanjay bafna, thanx to u and ppl like firstonnet that our complaints are now attended the very next day. Mtnl has become seriuosly fast in rectifying problems, specially through its facebook page. As someone said above that mtnl now needs to focus on providing better indoor 3G coverage not upto borivali but till bhayandar. In mira rd still many towers only support gprs not even edge. Whereas one good thing i noticed that so many new towers hav been installed giving nice coverage till naigaon.

  • muthu January 22, 2012 10:30 am

    I Hope that BSNL upgrade the speed on upcoming days…

  • debashish January 21, 2012 10:30 pm

    i hope i get more speed in mu plan of Rs.599/month.. which currently offers 512kbps..

  • Raghu January 21, 2012 9:32 pm

    @ Sanjay Bafna
    Also in Landline they have plan 1 rs/3 mins on BSNL landline and mobiles.Why BSNL landline is showing partiality when local and STD CALL TO NON-BSNL MOBILES IT COSTS 1 rs/3 mins. Why this sort of call charges for NON- BSNL mobiles,BSNL is showing towards its customers. they have lost customers but still they are not prepared to learn. I request u TO TELL THIS TO BSNL when u meet. Once again i am stressing on the point that u have to meet BSNL officers then only they will start acting.

  • Raghu January 21, 2012 9:26 pm

    @Sanjay Bafna
    thanks . please let me know when are u going to visit BSNL officers.u have to visit fast as BSNL is least bothered to introduce plans which MTNL is doing. First BSNL have to introduce 1p/sec and 49 p/min and also in mobile 1 rs/3 min as this is available in Landline only. once again as they have increased the call charges just like pvt operators as far as AP is concerned. Also BSNL have worst SMS packs as per AP is concerned. BSNL had a very good plan of Rs 13 with 1p/sms pack including Roaming. I Do not know what prompted BSNL to remove such plan. When pvt operators increase the rates what is the need of BSNL to increase rates as they want.

  • Rajesh January 21, 2012 8:08 pm

    Respected Sanjay Bafna Ji,

    We MTNL 3G customers have only couple of major expectation and demand from MTNL…

    First, MTNL 3G should have excellent indoor coverage through out the city, especially in the suburbs of Mumbai. MTNL’s indoor coverage is very poor in suburbs of western Mumbai, especially from Jogeshwari to Borivali.

    Second, MTNL 3G should provide average speeds of at least 3+ Mbps through out the day and night… like what all private operators currently provide (Vodafone, Airtel. Rcom) and not like what MTNL 3G is currently providing that of just 500Kbps to 1.2Mbps only. And also not cap speeds to 2.3Mbps like currently what MTNL 3G is doing.

    Sanjay Bafna Ji, Request you to kindly impress upon, persuade and follow up on the above requests on behalf of lakhs of MTNL 3G customers and many loyal fans of TelecomTalk like me.

    Sanjay Bafna Ji, you and telecomtalk are doing a great and excellent job in the telecom field. If through you, MTNL 3G becomes best in Mumbai, then all the accolades and credit will go to you and you will get lots of blessings.

    Thanking you a million… Rajesh

    @ Sanjay Bafna
    I really appreciate what Sanjayji is doing to MTNL with great follow ups. Mr Sanjayji why the same plans are not being introduced by BSNL. BSNL also brought this plan but upgradation for some plans only which they like. Why this discrimination by PSUs i really do not understand till now. MTNL will introduce Superb plans why BSNL is not able to follow suit. i Know Mr SanjayJi is doing his best. but again i request from my side to do strong follow ups with BSNL to introduce good plans which MTNL is doing. u can see in the comments list how many people are fed up with BSNL of their plans/customer care etc. hope by ur follow up BSNL will change and restore the faith of subscribers of TT.Thanks a lot

    Hay thanks a lot for good words. Im doing my best whatever i can do.

  • Kunal January 21, 2012 10:43 am

    Wow, it seems mtnl is gearing up for a war between all operators, giving good news every week, now only international roaming on prepaid is left !!!!
