There is no change in speed post the FUP limit in retail plans, as all SOHO plan customers now get 2Mbps speed post the FUP period. These plans are available only for Chennai, and all the existing customers using the old plans will be upgraded to new plans starting today without any additional cost. It remains unclear when they would revise broadband plans in other cities.
