What is Broadband Internet FUP? (Fair Usage Policy) | FUP Meaning

What is Broadband Internet FUP?

If you are subscribing to any Broadband service in India, then make sure that you check their FUP or Fair Use Policy, if applicable. However, there are few broadband services in India such as MTNL Broadband (Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited), not FUP.
The FUP is one that will not talk about customer service or agent, so it is your responsibility to check and ensure that you get any connection. But what exactly is the fair use policy and how does it affect me?

What is the Fair Use Policy (FUP)?

In simple terms, the FUP (Fair Usage Policy) means that even if you can subscribe to an unlimited broadband plan for 2Mbps of unlimited per month, and if your usage is very high and fixed as per the broadband provider If the cap crosses then the speed of the connection will be reduced to 512 Kbps for the remaining month.

What is the Jio FUP Limit and Speed?

Jio FUP Limit is same of FUP (Fair Usage Policy). Jio's all plan comes with FUP limits. When your FUP limit crossed then internet speed of the connection will be reduced to 64 Kbps for the remaining day.

Let's See an Example of Jio 399 Plan

In this plan Daily limit cap 1.5GB. that's means you can use high speed internet till cross 1.5GB. then your speed come down to 64kbps.

Why Are Internet Broadband Providers Apply FUP?

If you have 512 kbps unlimited connection for one month and say for example that you use the services for the entire month, 24 hours a day, you will be using a lot of bandwidth.
Now imagine many consumers doing this. This will stall the entire network which is not up to date, which results in a decline in connection or slow connections. Broadband service providers are not able to handle many users simultaneously nor do they have advanced / advanced technology to do so, so they have come with FUP System.

Apart from this, they want to earn more money by fooling consumers with a higher plan but actually giving less bandwidth if usage is high, at the same time using their old outdated network and are not investing for the upgrade .

So if you say that Rs. 750 for unlimited connections for 2Mbps for one month with FUP conditions, if you have more usage after a few days, then you will be running at a speed of 512 kbps for the rest of the month, even then you already have Rs. Have changed. 750 @ 512 kbps for entire month

Indian broadband service providers are not honest. They could keep the cap limit and then charged the customer for 512 kbps when their connection slowed down.

There is lot of competition in the broadband market so next time when any unlimited scheme exceeds, make sure that you are examining the FUP, you are not getting what you are being shown.
