Tata caps bandwidth following airtel

9 03 2009

After the announcement from airtel to cap unlimited connection ,  Tata indicom has also joined the wagon. With a very decent name to the policy. Calling the policy as Fair Usage Policy the bandwidth is now restriceted. Its not literally a volume based plan rather than a unlimited plan, except that the company dosent accept this to be a volume based plan., and knowing the consequenses on company reputation they have managed to keep this out of media very well. No offical announcement has been made , Customers are informed when the contact customer care.  This is a very pitiable state in india. While countries are competing for higher bandwidth and faster transfer mode, here competetion seem to restrict ppl to what is profitable for the company.

As per the new rules a 386kbps connection is only allowed for a total bandwidth of around 68GB per month both upload and download combined!! There is no point in calling this unlimited anymore. Its just another volume based plan . Worser the connection will be terminated once the limit exceeds.  Hope TRAI Comes up with a decesion soon in this , before other ISP take on this plan.
