HIGHLIGHTS

MTNL has listed two new plans on its website.

The plans are priced at Rs 2,990 and Rs 4,990.

They offer 1Gbps speeds and have FUP limits of 4TB and 8TB respectively.

Recently, we came across the news that the government might be planning to revive BSNL and MTNL with a big merger. While there’s no concrete information on when, or whether, this will actually happen, MTNL has announced a couple of new broadband plans in its Delhi circle. The new offerings by the telco are priced at Rs 2,990 and Rs 4,990, and they offer speeds of up to 1Gbps. This new plan comes soon after Reliance JioFiber service was announced and when most telcos are in the midst of revamping their current services and plans to keep consumers interested. 

Coming to the details of the new Fiber To The Home plans by MTNL, the two plans have a set FUP.  While both the plans offer up to 1Gbps speeds, the Rs 2990 pack offers high speeds till 3000GB while the Rs 4990 plan offers the same benefit up to 6000GB. After exhausting high-speed data, users will get to access the internet at speeds of 5Mbps. Additionally, there’s 1000 and 2000 GB of extra data benefit for six months respectively, with the two plans. These are monthly unlimited data plans but they also offer unlimited national calling and ISD calls at Rs 1 per MCU (metered call units).

As mentioned earlier, BSNL and MTNL might soon be merged under a new revival plan by the government. This plan is said to cost about Rs 74,000 crore of which Rs 22,000 would be used for acquiring 4G spectrum and for the voluntary retirement scheme (VRS). As per the report, the Union Cabinet has approved 4G spectrum allocation to merge BSNL and MTNL while allowing them to raise sovereign bonds of Rs 15,000 crores for revival.
