MTNL Mumbai has come up with yet another tariff plans to woo its consumers and to get new customers. They have introduced the new Triband Bill Cap Plans that gives the benefit of both limited and unlimited broadband usage.

When choosing a broadband connection many people have no idea as to what connection and speed they should go for. Many in fact cannot decide if they should go for the limited or the unlimited internet plan. This is where the new Triband Bill Cap Plans will help such users.

Let me explain how it works. Once you subscribe to this MTNL plan you can start using the broadband connection. When you start the plan it will be in limited mode with high speed of 2Mbps and you pay as you use. But as soon as you reach an amount over Rs. 999 the plan turns into unlimited usage with speed of 256Kbps.

This plan will be useful for people who are not sure if they will use more than Rs. 999 worth of Internet usage but at the same time having a freedom to limit their usage to Rs. 999 and turn unlimited.

Users will have to play Rs. 300 as Activation and Testing charges. The MTNL Modem one time upfront charges are waved off only for few days. Users can choose from Normal modem which will cost onetime fee of Rs. 300 or the Wi-Fi Wireless modem for Rs. 600, after the scheme ends.
