Hathway launches fit-for-all-pocket broadband Internet

Hathway Cable Internet, one of the largest broadband cable ISPs in India, has introduced its new broadband package – ‘Hathway 256 kbps’ – providing high speed Internet through cable for Rs 750 per month.

This new initiative will expose the residential Internet users to high-speed broadband experience at an affordable rate. This will also introduce mass subscribers into broadband. Earlier in March 2004, Hathway had introduced packages of 128 kbps speed for as low as Rs 300/- per month.

K Jayaraman, MD & CEO, Hathway, said, “It has been always our endeavour to make broadband Internet affordable for the masses and encourage usage of broadband services. Till now speeds like 256 kbps were only targeted at the corporate and small-medium businesses, however, with this price-slash, 256 kbps broadband speeds will be well within the reach of the residential users. Hathway 256 kbps is going to be the benchmark for high speed Internet not only attracting more subscribers but also increasing awareness about broadband amongst residential users.”

Hathway has also recently announced free net filtering solutions called ‘Site Police’ for its annual subscribers in order to prevent Internet abuse. Site Police, the Internet filtering software, stops pornography, chatting, games & other applications as per the subscriber’s wish.

Hathway Cable Internet is a broadband Cable Internet service provider in the country, offering broadband Internet services in eight Indian cities – Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune, Nashik and Ludhiana.

Meanwhile, the company entered into an alliance with one of the largest content providers in the world, STAR TV. This alliance will soon see the launch of enhanced and digital interactive TV all across the country.
