Asianet increases unlimited broadband plans speed to 700kbps and 1Mbps

By January 12th, 2015 AT 2:37 AM

Even though government haven’t taken any steps towards implementing NTP 2012 recommendation of minimum broadband speed of 2 Mbps by 2015. Asianet has taken a self initiative to increase their unlimited basic broadband plan speeds.


Asianet now offer a 700 kbps for its Rs 450 unlimited plan up from 512 kbps and 1 Mbps for Rs 510 unlimited plan from earlier 700 kbps.  Post FUP speed for other unlimited plan still remains at 512kbps. These plans provide ultra affordable true unlimited broadband at decent speeds.

Most ISPs were reluctant to increase minimum broadband speeds to current 512kbps when it was implemented last year. Even though NTP 2012 recommendation of 2 Mbps is still a long shoot, it is good to see a regional player like Asianet has made a small step towards it.

From my personal experience, i have been facing frequent disconnection and speed issues mostly from evening to mid night but not limited to, for the last one month (from jan 2016).… Read more »
