VSNL increases Net connections cost by 40%

Videsh Sanchar Nigam Ltd. has increased the tariffs for new Internet connections by over 40 per cent. As per the new tariffs, a 100-hour package will now be available for Rs 1,049, instead of Rs 750 earlier. The 250-hour package will now be available at Rs 2,415 instead of Rs 1,700. A 25-hour plan will now cost Rs 315 instead of Rs 225 and a 50-hour plan has been pegged at Rs 630 instead of Rs 450.

The existing subscribers and subscribers at VSNL’s new Internet nodes are being given a promotional offer. The move, though will make Internet surfing more expensive, comes as relief for private Internet service providers who were finding it difficult to compete with the low VSNL tariffs.

Meanwhile, VSNL has been adjudged India’s most favoured Internet service provider by PCQuest for the third consecutive year. The award, based on a users choice survey, was the result of 11-city sample survey conducted by IMRB. Presently, VSNL has 6.5 lakh dial up customers served from 1 GBP Internet bandwidth and about 1.5 GB bandwidth in its Internet domestic backbone.
