Hathway cuts cable Internet fees

In a drive to lure away customers using dial-up access to its cable Internet service, Hathway Cable & Datacom has introduced an entry price of Rs 650 a month for its Internet subscribers. This will be lower than its existing flat fee of Rs 1,000 a month per subscriber.

The cable modem price has been brought down from Rs 9,000 to Rs 7,800. The yearly subscription price will be Rs 6,500, compared to Rs 9,000 for the customers who are on the Rs 1,000 a month scheme.

According to industry sources, the download limit will be 300 mb, unlike the offering of Rs 1,000 a month where the cap is 500 mb which is more than enough for a normal user. The speed, however, will remain at 64 kbps. Free e-mail service of 5 mb will also be provided to a subscriber.

Hathway does not plan to expand the cable Internet service to new areas. Hyderabad will be the only new territory of expansion in the near future. Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Chennai and Bangalore are the other cities where the service is available.
