Gearing up for the official launch of Jio GigaFiber, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has revised its major broadband plans in India. The state-owned telco has tweaked both its Bharat Fiber as well as ADSL plans in the country. Notably, the revision is applicable from today. The change impacts eight ADSL broadband plans, including the Rs. 299, Rs. 549, and Rs. 675 plans, and two Bharat Fiber FTTH plans, namely the 600 GB CUL at Rs. 849 and 55 GB CUL at Rs. 4,449. BSNL last week released the Rs. 349, Rs. 399, and Rs. 499 broadband plans with up to 8Mbps speed that came into effect on a pan-India basis, except the Andaman and Nicobar (A&N) circle.
As per the latest revision, which has been posted on the BSNL Chennai website, the operator has replaced its BB BSNL CUL Rs. 299 ADSL broadband plan with the 2 GB BSNL CUL Rs. 349 plan. The new plan brings up to 8Mbps download speed until 2GB per day over the previous daily quota of 1.5GB. There are also Rs. 600 worth of off-net calling benefits, instead of the original calls worth Rs. 300.
BSNL has also replaced the 3 GB plan available at Rs. 549 with 4 GB CUL that comes at Rs. 599. The updated plan brings up to 10Mbps speed until 4GB per day and 2Mbps beyond the given quota. There is also unlimited voice calling benefit. To recall, the Rs. 549 plan was offering up to 8Mbps speed for 3GB data per day that dropped to 1Mbps after exceeding the daily limit. The original plan was also bundled with Rs. 700 worth of off-net calling.
The list of revised ADSL broadband plans also includes 5 GB plan and 10 GB plan that were available at Rs. 675, and Rs. 845, respectively. The revised plans are available at 5 GB CUL at Rs. 699 and 12 GB CUL at Rs. 899 with up to 10Mbps speed until as much as 12GB data per day. Further, BSNL has upgraded the Rs. 1,199 broadband plan, called 20 GB plan, with the 22 GB CUL plan available at Rs. 1,299. The new plan comes with a daily quota of 22GB at up to 10Mbps speed over 20GB data limit per day.
For customers demanding faster speeds after exceeding their daily limits, BSNL has revised the Rs. 1,495, Rs. 1.745, and Rs. 2,295 broadband plans with Rs. 1,599, Rs. 1,849, and Rs. 2,349, respectively. These new plans offer 4Mbps speed post the daily data limit.
