The new Fibro FTTH broadband plan from BSNL is part of its strategy to introduce more SSA/Circle specific broadband plans to counter competition from local broadband players in the region.
As with other circle/SSA specific plans, the above plan is only offered in those locations where there is a matching competition from private operators.
ACT FiberNet which launched their FTTH broadband in Delhi last week1, has now introduced new broadband plans for small enterprise or home offices under SOHO category. The popular ISP which is famous for great data speeds in southern India is already offering similar broadband packages under the same category.
For Delhi, the ISP is offering three plans namely Remarkable, Exceptional & Phenomenal. ACT Remarkable plan comes with 100 Mbps speed up to 300 GB FUP cap, then unlimited data at 2 Mbps at Rs 2999. While other two plans offer 125 Mbps speed with much more data in FUP and unlimited access at 2 Mbps after crossing the data limit. The details of all three plans is given in the table below.
ACT SOHO Broadband Plans in Delhi Plan Name Monthly Rental Speed FUP Data Limit Speed post FUP ACT Remarkable Rs 2999 100 Mbps 300 GB 2 Mbps ACT Exceptional Rs 3999 125 Mbps 400 GB 2 Mbps ACT Phenomenal Rs 4999 125 Mbps 550 GB 2 Mbps
Currently, it is available only in select parts of the city, for example, Safdarjung, Green Park, Kalkaji, Malviya Nagar, GK Part II and Okhla. We expect the company to expand their service footprint to other parts of the metro city as well. Currently, in the Delhi & NCR region Bharti Airtel is the major broadband provider as customers have no choice for a better data connection.
With ACT & upcoming 4G operator Jio s FTTH broadband connections this would change, as customers would have a better choice for broadband connections in the region.
