Airtel has increased the tariffs of all their broadband plans. Part of the hike is related to new government regulations which has increased some fees. Rest of it has been blamed on the increased input costs.
Airtel is not offering anything additional. The plan specifications remain exactly the same. We wish they had increased the FUP limits by a bit to compensate for the price hike. It would not have increased their own costing much.
Airtel said in a note:
Due to regulatory changes and increase in input costs, there is a marginal increase in our monthly tariff plans. Rest assured that at airtel, you will always get best value for your money.
Price hike range from around Rs. 50 to Rs. 200 depending upon the plan you are on.
