MTS, the mobile services brand of Sistema Shyam TeleServices Ltd., has slashed MTZ Blaze tariff by up to 60 percent in Delhi NCR circle. The company is likely to slash data plan prices in other circles soon.
New MTS plans start at Rs. 96 for 1GB ( 1 day validity) to Rs. 698 for 4 GB with validity for sixty days. Earlier, MTS offered only 512 MB usage for Rs. 96, with one day validity. Similarly, MTS users can now have 6GB of data (validity of 90 days) for Rs. 998, which earlier had only 3GB data.
Moreover, MTS has also announced new special tariff voucher of Rs. 698, which has 4 GB data usage and 60 days validity.
Previously for Rs. 348, MTS users got 512 MB data which is 67.9 paisa/MB, but now after the revised rates, users get 1.5 GB data usage for Rs. 348 which is 22.5 paisa/MB – a whopping 60 percent drop in usage charges, says MTS in a release.
As per Mr Shankar Bali, Chief Operating Officer, Delhi NCR and Haryana Circle, MTS India,“We have specially designed these tariffs to provide our data customers with a world class mobile internet experience at affordable price backed by increased usage benefits.”
According to Mr. Bali, the new MTS plans will benefit operator’s 3 lakh customers in Delhi and NCR. After Airtel launched its 4G services and slashed 3G tariffs, it was expected that other telecom operators will follow suit sooner or later. So far all the major telecom operators including Vodafone, Idea, Reliance and Aircel have already slashed their 3G tariffs.
CDMA player MTS was long speculated to join the race. MTS’ new data plans are certainly competitive, and set to compete with new 3G plans from the operators such as Aircel and Reliance.
