Few months back, Reliance Communications had launched ‘Truly Unlimited’ prepaid plans for its Netconnect+ service. Reliance has now revised these plan and now comes with Fair Usage Policy after which the speed will be throttled to 1X speed.
Earlier Netconnect+ prepaid plans Rs 449 and Rs 797 offer true unlimited CDMA EVDO internet at 3.1 Mbps speed for 15 days and 30 days respectively. Reliance has withdrawn plan Rs 449(except for UP West) and revised Rs 797 to offer 10GB/12GB unlimited with FUP for 28 days instead of 30 days earlier. But Reliance has retained both plans as true unlimited for UP west circle.
Reliance has made available Rs 999 plan for Netconnect+ subscribers which was earlier only available for Reliance PRO 3 users. The plan offer 10GB day + 10GB night or 12GB day + 12GB night usage for 28 days validity depending on circle. For postpaid subscribers Reliance Netconect+ offer true unlimited on Rs 999 plan available only in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra & Mumbai.
True unlimited internet plans are very rare in wireless broadband segment and Reliance offering was welcomed by users across the country. But the latest move by the company to end true unlimited plan will be a great blow to Netconnect+ subscribers.
