MTNL is seeking external advertisers to insert pop-up ads in browsing sessions of consumers connected to MTNL Wi-Fi connections through their laptops, mobile phones or tablets. MTNL will be charging Rs 150 per 1000 impressions from the advertisers/brands. Note that the rates vary between Rs 150 and Rs 200 depending on the media agency running the CPM campaign for MTNL. Apparently, the maximum number of pop-up ads per device per day is restricted to 5. Currently, this MTNL backed CPM campaign is available in Mumbai and Delhi only.
