Airtel seems to have bucked under angry user voices on the net (and on email)…but only partially. The earlier broadband plans have been replaced with a new set of plans with higher transfer limits, but FUP is here to stay (past rants – one, two and three)! Here’s a glance of the broadband plans available from Airtel.
There are 3 so-called ‘Unlimited’ plans which seem to penalize the user for having chosen a high-speed broadband plan, unlike the 2 lowly 256 kbps plans that offer true ‘Unlimited’ transfer limits. So, does increasing the limit from the earlier 20 GB (for my 384 kbps plan, in specific) to 75 GB make things alright? Is it still unlimited given Airtel’s implied, Bill gates’ish ’75 GB ought to be enough for anyone’ claim?
