ACT Fibernet has decided to take on the competition by offering a 100 Mbps broadband plan at just Rs 699 per month in Chennai city. However, there’s a catch under this program. ACT Fibernet has a 100 Mbps broadband plan with 1TB FUP in Chennai, priced at Rs 1049. If a customer chooses the ACT Blast Promo broadband plan aka Rs 1049 plan for 12 months (one year) at one go, then the Internet Service Provider will be giving additional six months of free service, meaning a user will get 18 months of free service. This effectively brings down the price to Rs 699 per month, which is of course, excluding taxes. Besides this plan, ACT Fibernet is also providing broadband plans with 150 Mbps and 200 Mbps at effective prices of Rs 999 and Rs 1,332 respectively.
If a customer opts these plans for six months, ACT Fibernet will be giving additional two months of free service, meaning the user will get eight months of service in total. Consider a user is opting the Rs 1049 broadband plan for six months, then the effective price per month becomes Rs 786 for eight months. For the customers choosing six months or the one-year rental plan, ACT will also be waiving off installation charges and provides the user with a free Wi-Fi router too. ACT Fibernet is also giving users 1500GB of free data which will be valid until August 31, 2018.
ACT Fibernet is providing this six months free service offer on the yearly rental plan in Chennai city only. In other cities, the ISP has come up with different schemes. ACT is giving 20% additional data for users choosing yearly rental plans in Delhi city, while for Hyderabad users, the 24 months rental plan will benefit them with six months of free service.
On the whole, broadband players in the country are now looking to lock-in their customers by not moving out to other ISP. With the threat of Jio GigaFiber around the corner, this move from ACT Fibernet will surely attract a lot of customers. Recently, ACT has increased data speeds on select plans in Hyderabad city, and now, it has come up with this move.
