Price of ADSL goes down but not that of myT
MyT users should stop reading right now because they will be somewhat angry, especially when they will read what Mauritius Telecom said regarding the myT service.
As you read in the title, the price is going down as follows, as from 1st Dec 2011 :
- 256 Kb/s : From Rs399 to Rs 349.
- 512 Kb/s : From Rs759 to Rs 699
- 1 Mb/s : From 899 to Rs 799
Small and Medium Enterprises will get a decrease of %50 while Call Centers(BPO) from -10 to -40% and ADSL Business gets a discount of -50%.
btw, @Defimedia : you got your figures wrong! Double check next time!
Coming back to myT subscribers, I quote from l’express.mu :
S’agissant de My.T, ce service de Mauritius Telecom permettant à la fois de téléphoner, de visionner les films et de surfer sur Internet, il n’y aura aucune réduction des tarifs.
Price update for myT (Announced on 28 Nov 2011) :
- 1M – from Rs999 to Rs 949
- 2M – from Rs1699 to Rs 1499
- 4M – from Rs 2999 to Rs 2499
In my opinion, if you don’t mass download like most of your friends, or you don’t use your myT to watch TNT or do international calls, the best thing to do is to buy a wifi router, connect it to a 256K ADSL line, that’s it. You can enjoy wifi as well as a much lower price.
However, be careful, you might need a permit from ICTA in case you are shopping online!
With these words, I wish you a happy weekend ahead!
Have a nice time!
