We have also rolled out a range of monthly data plans to suit the needs of customers across categories,’ MTS India Chief Marketing and Brand Officer Leonid Musatov said in a statement.

The company said its new post-paid customers now need to pay Rs 999 to get an MBlaze Ultra Wi-Fi dongle which was earlier available for Rs 1,499. MTS said its dongle is now priced at almost half the rate of is competitors. The statement mentioned that services will be offered at broadband speed of up to 9.8 megabit per second.

The company has reduced rates of its MBlaze Ultra Wi-fi dongle loaded with 10 GB mobile broadband to Rs 1,749 from Rs 2,299 for new customers.
