Hathway has launched a new 300Mbps broadband plan for its Chennai customers. This plan offers 2TB of data FUP, and is priced at Rs. 1,699 per month. If the user decides to take a 1-year plan up front, the monthly tenure is reduced to Rs. 1,250 per month. Alongside, Hathway also partnered with TP-Link to launch a new service called Edge Wi-Fi Mesh solution for the first time in India.
Once the FUP is reached, the speed is reduced to 5Mbps. This plan is only available for Chennai users for now, but will be rolled out for other metros gradually. In Chennai, the 300Mbps plan will go line from October 10, and it will roll out for other metros starting December 1.
Furthermore, Hathway will give these plan customers a free TP-Link Deco M5 mesh for free. The Wi-Fi mesh has 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports, Bluetooth support, one USB-C adapter, a quad-core CPU, and even supports Alexa. It covers 3000 to 4000 square feet area, ensuring connectivity in the entire home, including old houses that have plaster walls.
Rajan Gupta, MD, Hathway, said, “Wi-Fi is the oxygen for digital homes and our mesh routers can blanket a home with great coverage. With demand for 4K OTT entertainment, online gaming and Internet of Things application on rise, it’s necessary for us to provide ultra high-speed connectivity to our consumers. Chennai is one of the fastest growing markets for broadband and content consumption. Hathway is delighted to offer this service, which is a first in India and Chennai will be the first market to receive this service.”
Other broadband plans in Chennai that Hathway offers currently, includes a Rs. 1,049 per month plan with 1TB FUP at 200Mbps speed, a Rs. 999 per month plan with 1TB FUP at 150Mbps speed, and a Rs. 949 per month plan with 1TB FUP at 100Mbps speed.
