Broadband Players Looking to Lock-In Users for Longer Period
One side, telecom operators are battling against each other, and on the other side, broadband players are preparing for the aggressive launch of Reliance Jio GigaFiber. Rather than going after Jio with affordable broadband plans, the wired Internet Service Providers (ISP) are locking in customers for a longer period, so that they can't move to Jio GigaFiber. Well, how are they doing that? Here's the answer: ISPs are bundling attractive offers on long-validity plans to lure more users join their network. Leading players such as ACT Fibernet, BSNL, Hathway Broadband and so on have already come up with such attractive offers, and it's time for Vodafone-owned YOU Broadband to come up with something similar.
