Bharat Telecom offering 2Mbs Internet and 40 TV channels at Rs280 in Mauritius
For those who've never heard of Bharat Telecom, it's a huge company in India which has partnered with Mauritius to offer its telecommunications services to us. The government has said a number of times that internet prices will decrease in the coming years and so far because Mauritius Telecom was the only reliable ISP, we all had to put up with the bad service for their MyT packages.
However that could all change now with the coming of this new player as we'll be able to get 40 IPTV channels and 2Mbs internet connection speed for just Rs280 per month. Compare that with Rs1500 for the 2Mbs MyT package and it looks like an 80% saving.
Is anyone considering to switch to Bharat Telecom?
TFI, le groupe France Télévision, le groupe M6, TV5, Star Plus, Star Gold, Z Cinema, Z TV, Cartoon Network, Disney Channel, Discovery Channel, National Geographic, Nat Geo Wild, Universal Channel, Warner Bros TV, ESPN et ESPN Classic.
But due to the exclusive rights of satellite channel providers for formula One (DSTV), Tour de France(France Télévision),Rugby (Canalsat& TF1) and football (Canalsat & TF1),BT will not be able to broadcast certain sports. So for this reason, Baljinder Sharma, the director of BT said the following:
" Le business des chaînes de télévision est très complexe. Nous essayons de donner un bon package mais il est impossible de promettre que nous aurons toutes les chaînes et les programmes prévus. Cependant, nous aurons une large gamme de choix."

They are most likely going to choose 40 among those 100 and so TV channels as they've already partnered with these networks. For Rs280 a month, I doubt they will have non-indian channels.
Do we have packages for unlimited internet connection at Bharat Telecom in Mauritius? If so then what are their prices??
I've read that on Scope Magazine(18-24 April).
Now i'm pretty sure that Mauritius Telecom will stop extorting money from us poor Mauritians... ;)
Orange price is just a rip off. But it's our only choice for the moment.
As Pinky_Rao ji said it's going to be way better with the coming of Bharat T.
Let's just hope there will be no bad surprises.
Since one is limited of GB of downloads :(
I think the 40 channels would be better than canalsat ....if not then go back to india
I can't find any information on what TV packages Bharat Telecom will be offering to Mauritians. I think they will be a lot of indian channels out of those 40 though but let's hope they have some nice movie and documentary channels as well.
Let's wait and see if others like Emtel react. The competition war is just beginning.
That's going to be fibre-optic, right? So do we need a regular telephone line?
