“GTPL Hathway delivered another strong quarter. The highlight of the quarter was strong profitability and debt reduction,” Anirudhsinh Jadeja, managing director of GTPL Hathway, said in the release. “Our CATV Business expansion in Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Telengana is on track and it will gain momentum in the coming quarters [sic].”

GTPL Hathaway has got the poorest customer service. They charge you for 6/9/12 months in advance and then their is no network and even no support from their end.

I am a cybersecurity consultant in a private company and I am working from home. It’s been more than 20 days my GTPL broadband is dead. I have been calling them every day but the support executives are doing nothing but testing my patience.

This is pathetic…!!
