Airtel on Monday launched its first 300Mbps broadband plan that comes with a monthly rental of Rs. 2,199. Designed specifically for subscribers on the FTTH (Fiber-To-the-Home) service, the new plan offers 1200GB of ultra-high-speed data along with unlimited STD/ local calling benefits. It debuts more than a year after Airtel brought its V-Fiber broadband model to offer a maximum data speed of 100Mbps in India.
Airtel subscribers opting for the new 300Mbps broadband plan will get a bunch of offerings, including a free subscription to Airtel's OTT apps - Wynk Music and Airtel TV, alongside Amazon Prime subscription, which Airtel is offering to other subscribers as well. The plan also includes data rollover benefits, Airtel Surprise, and myHome Rewards. Furthermore, there is bonus data of 1TB that is valid until October 31 and is applicable only through the online purchase of the plan.
The availability of the 300Mbps home broadband plan is limited to select circles across India. Subscribers need to visit Airtel's broadband site to check its availability in regions.
"Following the resounding success of our V-Fiber home broadband offering, we are delighted to introduce the new FTTH based plans for customers looking for higher speeds. Fixed broadband continues to be the preferred in-home mode for customers to consume online digital content and the average usage per home is growing at a breakneck speed. With this in mind, we will plan to expand our FTTH offerings over the coming days and provide our customers the choice of home broadband plans across a wide range of price points and speeds," said George Mathen, CEO - Homes, Bharti Airtel, in a statement announcing the launch of the new plan.
