Last month, ACT Fibernet or Atria Convergence Technologies announced a partnership with popular streaming service Netflix and introduced new Entertainment plans. Subscribers choosing these Netflix Entertainment plans from ACT Fibernet will be eligible for some discount on their monthly Netflix subscription. When the partnership was announced, ACT Fibernet said subscribers would be able to reduce their monthly Netflix bill by up to Rs 350. However, as per the latest update, ACT Fibernet is indeed providing a cashback of up to Rs 500 with the company's 1 Gbps broadband plans. For the unaware, ACT Fibernet is currently offering ACT Giga broadband plans with 1 Gbps download speeds in three cities namely Chennai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru. If you reside in any of these cities, you can reduce your monthly Netflix bill by Rs 500 which is a good thing, but the ACT Giga plan costs Rs 5,999 in Hyderabad and Bengaluru and Rs 2,999 in Chennai. Other ACT Fibernet plans are also part of the Netflix cashback offer.
