The next plan is available for Rs 2,499, and it includes 300GB FUP limit on a monthly basis. This plan will remain valid for four months, totalling 1200GB limit. Then there is Rs 1,499 broadband plan, where customers will get 1,000GB data for two months (60 days).

FUP limits and extras

Once the monthly data is exhausted, speed will be throttled to 2Mbps for the remaining month. The company is also bundling free fiber modem with the plan, and cable TV service is offered for free as well, DreamDTH reports.
