Unlimited. In other
plans, there is usage limit specified in GB. So where it says unlimited,
it means that there is no limit on data usage. They can not claim it was
meant for time.
Unmetered, Unlimited, Flat rate. The terminology is clearly there. I get
your point and I'm not opposing it. TRAI or whoever is incharge must
make sure the *correct* terminology is used while describing the plans.
There is a *** marked against it and the cap is
mentioned, but it still
amounts to false advertising and MRTP or TRAI can pull up the company on
It has been declared earlier by MRTP in cases that you can not have a

from Kanjur to Lower Parel now cost us less than 5K per month for a
2mbps connection. It used to be more than 25K per month. 64K used to
