Internet service provider (ISP) Excitel on Wednesday announced FTTH plans that start at a monthly price of Rs 399 for 100 Mbps in case users subscribe for a year. The ISP’s plans start at Rs 399 for 100 Mbps and go up to Rs 899 for 300 Mbps per month across 17 cities in the country.
According to the company, all the revised plans are for Excitel’s high-speed Fiber to home (FTTH) broadband connection, with the brand expanding its fiber-based network to around 50 tier-2 and tier-3 cities by the end of 2021. All of Excitel’s plans are fiber-based and there is no FUP or data limit associated with any of the packages.
“The work from home scenario due to the pandemic led to a spurt in demand for wireline broadband with users realizing the true value of broadband. People started spending a lot of time on the internet for their work, communication, and entertainment-related needs. This heavy usage was something that wireless 4G networks could not handle due to data limits and coverage issues. We are offering 100 Mbps speed without any data restrictions at an affordable cost of INR 399/month. Our packages are truly unlimited, moderately priced and we try to deliver the best in class services and technology within that price,” Vivek Raina, Excitel Co-founder and CEO said in a statement.
The plans are operational in 17 cities including Delhi, Noida, Faridabad, Jaipur, Lucknow, Prayagraj, Hyderabad, Vijayawada, Guntur, Gurgaon, Ghaziabad, Rohtak, Unnao, Kanpur, Jhansi, Bangalore, and Visakhapatnam. Excitel Broadband is working towards reaching over 50 more cities by the end of 2021.
