Ortel Communication, the Cable TV and service provider launched 1 TB data plan at a speed of 100 mbps with complimentary digital TV services. The service will be available at INR 4999(US$77.6). Ortel has upgraded its minimum broadband speed to 1 Mbps by withdrawing all its data plans below 1 Mbps speed. Existing customers will automatically be upgraded to this speed.
All the plans are without any daily limit, which can be used by the subscribers at their convenience without worrying about exhausting the limit or losing the data within the monthly billing cycle. The new plans are available from INR 299(US$4.6) onwards and the choice of speeds can range up to 100 Mbps for homes, whereas SMEs and corporates can choose their speeds even beyond 100 Mbps using fibre leased lines. The data download limits are also revised upward. Now customers can avail plans with the download limits of 10–200GB before they can migrate to a TB plan.

Keeping this dimension in mind, Ortel has unveiled its 1 Terabyte data plan at 100 Mbps speed with complimentary digital TV subscription”.
“Our value proposition has been redefined with multi-fold increase in data limits in the new plans. Ortel has exceeded the definition of broadband in India with upgrade of its minimum broadband speed to 1 Mbps in its entire network. Now customers can do more at a very affordable price,” he added.
