Tata Sky Broadband Removes Unlimited Data From Plans; Speed Will Reduce After This Limit
In a time like this, when home broadband lines have understood and are supporting the vast population of people working from home, Tata Sky Broadband has decided to go the other way.
The company has decided to now add a fair usage policy (FUP) on its unlimited pack.
Tata Sky Broadband
Tata Sky Broadband plans come in two varieties – Fixed GB plans and Unlimited plans. The Fixed GB plans, as the name suggests, offer a cap on data that varies with the package you subscribe.
Until recently, the unlimited broadband plans came with no cap on data or speed. However, the company seems to have changed its fine print, and has now started to throttle speed after the cap of 1500GB of data.
The FUP is now 1500GB of data usage per month, after which the connectivity speed will reduce to 2Mbps.
Unlimited Plans Now
The operator has changed the terms and conditions on its site for Unlimited plans. The company website has now added a new condition for Unlimited plans that reads, “For Unlimited Data plans, speed will reduce to 2Mbps after 1500GB data consumption.” This condition wasn’t mentioned before for unlimited plans.
Let us take the example of plans offered in Mumbai, to illustrate. There are three plans classified as unlimited. The first is priced at Rs 900 and offers speeds up to 25Mbps. Then there is the Rs 1,000 plan which offers 50Mbps and the Rs 1100 plan offers 100Mbps speed.
Till now, these were truly unlimited plans, but now, the moment you use 1500GB data in a month, the connection speed reduces to 2Mbps till the end of that month’s billing cycle.
Currently, Tata Sky Broadband is offering 15% discount on its annual plans, and 10% discount on its half-yearly plans.
This move comes at a time when rival ISPs are doing their best to perform otherwise.
Reliance Jio, earlier this month, had confirmed that it was increasing the network capacity of its broadband network and is offering the double data benefit to all users.
Airtel has also repeatedly assured customers of uninterrupted service and is trying to install new connections for customers even in the lockdown, including 1Gbps connections.
