The download speed of its ‘Orange ADSL 4M’, meanwhile, will be upped to 30Mbps, while the monthly subscription price will drop to MUR1,849 (USD52.53) from MUR2,349 per month. In regards to its fibre-optic plans, which are offered under the MyT La Fibre banner, the operator will reduce the monthly tariff of its MyT La Fibre 30Mbps plan to MUR1,499 (MUR1,999 previously).
