Hathway launches broadband package for residential users


MUMBAI: Hathway Cable Internet has launched a high-speed broadband package- Hathway 256 kbps for Rs. 750 per month.

The package introduces high speed surfing at the above mentioned affordable rate and is aimed at encouraging the usage of broadband services and increasing the awareness level about broadband among residential users.

The new package is designed to give an enhanced online experience where the user will be able to access the Internet and its applications quicker. The annual charge is Rs 7500. The speed for data transfer counts only downloads and not uploads.

The package will also introduce mass subscribers into broadband. Earlier this year in March, Hathway had introduced packages of 128 kbps speed for Rs 300 a month.

Dwelling on the latest scheme Hathway MD and CEO K. Jayaraman said, "It has always been 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 (SMBs). 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 the residential users."

Hathway had also recently announced free net filtering solutions called Site Police for its annual subscribers. The aim was to prevent Internet abuse. The Internet filtering software stops pornography, chatting, games and other applications as per the subscriber's wish.
