Airtel Doubles Broadband speed at no extra cost!

Airtel An exciting news is here for all Airtel Broadband users. Recently, Bharti Airtel has made an official announcement to double the speed for its Broadband customers at no extra charge.

Airtel is upgrading speeds of all its existing customers (on 64, 128, 256 Kbps) to a minimum of 512 Kbps. Further, customers currently on 512 Kbps plans and 1 Mbps plans will have their speeds doubled to 1Mbps and 2Mbps respectively. The upgrades come at no extra cost to existing customers and will be completed by June 2010 pan India.

Airtel also announced the launch of ‘Impatience Plans’ – Offering 4 Mbps speed plans starting at Rs. 899/ month.

This is really an exceptional move by Airtel to delight and maximize its subscribers, and a challenge to other telecom service providers in India.

Update (March 31) – I’m from UP (W) with an Airtel 256Kbps Unlimited plan. I’m delighted to tell, today my broadband speed got doubled from 256 kbps to 512 kbps for Free. 😀 Check the below screenshots for proof:

    This is a great news, but unfortunately Airtel broadband is not available here. I heard that bsnl has a plan to reduce their broadband charge?

    Its a great news but i don’t think they are really gonna do this.
    They had announced that all the broadband plans will be upgraded to 2MBPS during IPL matches. But it never happened.

      I dont think they ever said that speeds will be upgraded to 2mbps during IPL.
      They said that You will get 2mbps when you watch IPL on youtube/ipl. Dont know how they do it though! 🙂

    That is a whole lot useless bluff. I ask them have they been informing any of the existing customers that they are going to have a download limits, as per the Fair Usage Policy, under which even though they have doubled the speed they have limited the “download quantity” which is the main reason people have been shifting to UNLIMITED broadband, but now Airtel shattters our dream by limiting the basic download it self to 10 GB and 15 GB for unlimited users, so whats’ the point of calling it an UNLIMITED shit.
