Major Indian Broadband market players viz. Airtel, TataIndicom and Reliance now have an asterisk (*) [Conditions apply] on their unlimited Broadband plans. Following the metered broadband trend from International players, they are also providing unlimited Broadband attached with
“Fair Usage Policy” [..lol…]
Under this scheme if you violate their policy, your speed may be reduced to half or you have to pay some more bucks. Worse, they may terminate your connection.
There are a lot of threads you can find on Broadband forums regarding this step, so be aware and use the BB carefully respective to your ISP 🙁 .
You are not going to get all that you are paying for. [Unfair policy]
