Jio came and revolutionized the telecommunication arena in India. The internet tariff plans have gone dirt cheap as compared to the pre-Jio time. Not to mention, Idea and Vodafone had to seek solace in each other through a merger to decrease the loss.
The company in their Annual General Meet announced Jio Fiber. On the contrary to everyone’s belief, it will go commercially live on 5 September. Guess what? The competitors already realized the danger and started renewing the plans for users’ benefit.
Hathway Brings Alluring 100Mbps plan for Rs. 699
We have covered the launch of Jio Fiber here on GeekDashboard. If you remember, every internet user salivates at such impressive tariff plans. It seems other ISPs are quick to respond with their own plans to hit back against the Ambani-helmed company.
Hathway has introduced a new plan to their broadband users in Kolkata circle. You have to spend Rs. 699 to get the internet for a month. They offer 100Mbps speed with 1 TB FUP. When opting for a new connection, one can now get Rs. 2500 worth of benefits with their streaming gadget named PlayBox (available at Rs. 899). You can stream Netflix, Zee5, and SunNXT without any additional costs.
The company has brought about a few other plans too. The most seducing one among the lot is the one we mentioned here.
