Long awaited unlimited HSPA broadband is offered by dialog. Interesting stuff in this initiation is HSPA dongle for 6000 SLR. If you are to buy one, then you need to spend around 18,000 SLR – 20,000 SLR.
Though it is said unlimited download, there is a Fair User Policy which may affect you. Fair user policy limits your download speed with your download volume. Basically, if you’re a freak downloading each and everything from net, then your download will affect other user’s downloading experience in the network.
Torrent lovers will have hard time with this package, but normal users can get maximum out of it. Currently SLT ADSL has no Fair user policy attached to it, so we can download any amount of software, games, and movies from torrent sites and file sharing sites.
As far as I know dialog is the first to introduce fair user policy in Sri Lanka and they are making a good deal out of it.
You’ll be given 7.2 Mbps of downlink but when you reach 6 GB limit, you’ll be in trouble. Your speed will come down to 64 kbps, which is equivalent to dial-up connection. Refer the table that I got from dialog.lk. It’ll give you a clear picture about this product.
For example you reached 6 GB but still you wanna go for 7.2 Mbps. All you have to do is pay 100 Rs per day till the end of the billing cycle. From next month you’ll again get 7.2 Mbps till you reach 6 GB limit. It’s kind of OK for me.
If you’re a university student you’ll be entitled to 50 percent discount on bills, so hurry. Offer available till 15th of October.
There are rumors around and people are saying that Mobitel also going to introduce such unlimited download package for their users. We’ll wait and see what Mobitel gonna do about it. I checked in mobitel’s site but so far no such announcement. May be they wanna keep it secret till they reveal it.
For god sake, 2990 SLR is too much for an average Sri Lankan but prices will come down after some time. As Airtel enter the market there will be a big competition among mobile operators and they’ll have to slash down their prices to keep their customers.
As we know, dialog is very good at marketing and they like to get as much as customers before the entry of Airtel. All we can say at this point is, Good initiation from Dialog but prices should go down so that average Sri Lankan can afford it.
