Government-owned Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL) has finally launched 1 Gbps broadband plans in New Delhi. Similar to telecom services, MTNL is also providing broadband services in just two circles- Mumbai and New Delhi. While the company is yet to launch high-speed 1 Gbps broadband plans in Mumbai, it now has two plans in New Delhi starting at Rs 2,990. The two 1 Gbps plans from MTNL are priced at Rs 2,990 and Rs 4,990, separated by monthly FUP limit. As for the first six months, MTNL is offering a whopping 4TB and 8TB of FUP limit with both the plans, but this is available only for new customers right now. After six months, the FUP limit will be reduced to 3TB and 6TB, respectively. Furthermore, both the plans also offer unlimited voice calling to any mobile & landline number in the country.
MTNL Launches Two 1 Gbps Broadband Plans in Delhi, Beats BSNL in the Process
Similar to BSNL which is providing telecom, landline and broadband services to the customers, MTNL is also offering the same in Mumbai and New Delhi. But BSNL is yet to provide 1 Gbps broadband plans to the customers, so in this regard, MTNL has the upper hand. But we may see BSNL launching similar 1 Gbps broadband plans in the coming months.
As for the MTNL 1 Gbps broadband plans, they're priced at Rs 2,900 and Rs 4,990. The monthly FUP limit on these broadband plans is 3TB (3000GB) and 6TB (6000GB), respectively. However, for new customers and for the first six months, MTNL will be shipping 4TB (4000GB) and 8TB (8000GB) monthly data respectively. MTNL is marketing these plans as unlimited data plans, but they do have a massive FUP limit, according to the information available.
Reliance JioFiber is also providing two 1 Gbps plans to the customers and the premium one is priced at Rs 8,499 and it offers just 5TB of FUP limit. MTNL, on the other hand, is charging half the amount at Rs 4,990 and providing nearly double the FUP limit at 8TB. Even Airtel Xstream is now providing a 1 Gbps plan priced at Rs 3,999, but again, it has a FUP limit of 3.3TB, so MTNL has a clear upper hand in Delhi right now.
Other benefits of the two 1 Gbps FTTH plans from MTNL include free voice calling meaning a customer can make unlimited voice calls to any network within India. MTNL is also allowing to choose 1 Gbps plans quarterly or for one year. For a quarterly subscription of Rs 2,990 plan, the charges would be Rs 7,970, for one-year, it would be Rs 29,990. After FUP speeds of both the plans will be 5 Mbps.
Other MTNL FTTH Broadband Plans in Delhi City
Besides the 1 Gbps broadband plans, MTNL is even offering other FTTH plans in New Delhi, providing speeds of up to 500 Mbps. MTNL, right now, is running a promotional plan priced at Rs 599 that offers 100 Mbps speeds and 200GB of FUP limit for the first six months. Next plan on the list includes the Rs 777 one, which ships with 100 Mbps speeds up to 500GB for the first six months, post which the FUP Limit will be decreased to 400GB.
