Cheapest Broadband in Delhi (excluding cable operators) plan from MTNL is Freedom-ULD-399-Combo plan (currently open till 10th January 2018) with a tariff of 399/- per month and 25Gb Fair Usage Limit (FUL). This is under the Diwali offer so is open for limited time. The great thing about this plan is that you get unlimited broadband at minimum 2Mbps with a telephone line with UNLIMITED LOCAL CALLS to any network whether landline or mobile.

Here is an explanation of MTNLs for broadband users in Delhi to help them understand how their original Unlimited 599 broadband plan works. Primarily the 512kbps speed has been enhanced to 2Mbps till 60Gb limit (earlier 9Gb) after which it goes back to 1Mbps (earlier 512kbps). Consequently the charges have been increased from Rs.599/- to Rs.659/- (earlier Rs. 630/-, all taxes being extra). To explain it further - your download speed will be 2Mbps till the total of your uploads and downloads reaches 60Gb, which is also called a FUL. After that it falls back to 1Mbps. Remember the 60Gb limit includes both downloads and uploads, and not just downloads.

As the plan is an unlimited plan the total charge is Rs.659/- only. These plans have been discontinued but that is how they work for all the users who started with MTNL Unlimited 599 plan. We suggest you CHANGE your plan to 399 plan immediately as all new plans are costlier than earlier. You can close your current connection and ask MTNL to let you retain the earlier number. The Unlimited 599 plan gives you 100 calls free which their new plans give at higher price but 399 plan gives you all LOCAL Calls FREE.

 Earlier TriB UL Data-597 with its charges Rs.597/- per month was the cheapest plan.

Fair(Freedom Plan) and Time Usage Based Unlimited Postpaid Tariff Plans shows the latest broadband plans available from MTNL. The cheapest plan available in Delhi from a non cable operator is by MTNL called TriB UL Data-597 and its charges are Rs.597/- per month. Please DO NOT get carried away by the table given on the page where Freedom-696 is shown first. That is a costlier plan. Please check the full table till bottom and you will realize the cheapest unlimited plan is Rs. 597/- pm. In fact the 597 plan allows 40Gb (earlier 9Gb) data at 2 Mbps speed and then slows down to 1Mbps while the 696 plan allows only 6 Gb data at the 2 Mbps speed. So opt for 597 plan rather than the 696 plan. The 696 plan has been placed on the top to deceive prospective customers. This technique is also used by Airtel to deceive customers. All these greedy telecom service providers are deceiving customers to earn more profit. See the table below showing the bottom few rows from the MTNL page mentioned above.
