    Error-678
    This is most common problems. It is due to poor connectivity. Problem can be anywhere between B.RAS – Tier 2 – DSLAM – Modem – PC of the customer.
    Remedy Switch off / Switch on Modem (Power Switch at the back of modem ) and wait for 2 minutes. Then retry.If problem is not solved then Reset Modem [Back pin (in the hole) to be pressed in switched ON condition]
    [Note : Link PC in black type Modem or WAN / LAN in white type Modem will go Off and then ON and system may be stable. Then retry.
    If problem is still not solved then
    a)Check link lamp in Black type Modem or WAN lamp in White Modem. If it is blinking, then it is line problem.
    b)Check Modem to splitter connectivity.
    i) Jack in & Jack out the cable of / to the modem and to the splitter
    ii)Jack in & Jack out the telephone connection of the splitter.
    If lamp is still blinking – then it is due to poor line condition / fault.
    The case has to be referred to Area Broadband Team for attending the fault.

    BSNL BROADBAND 24X7 Best hai humare liye…..Am migrating from existing 750/month UL to this 24 MBPS speed sooner..BSNL does everything with a bang!!

  • RDB October 5, 2009 7:27 pm

    @adi
    @ Hari

    I am on BSNL Combo500, as mentioned by Adi, my every month download is over 100GB just during free night hours + 1.5GB free usage,see d snapshot – http://i33.tinypic.com/eppwf4.jpg for me BSNL best hai mere liye. but with this newly launched plans, i expect upgradation of bandwidth of existing plans.

    Earlier a scan published over internet saying in 1Mbps n 2Mbps UL plan – after certain GB usage (25/50 GB) the speed will be down to 256Kbps.

    @ sanjay Bafna – so such ‘conditions apply’ is just a rumor ?

  • Sanjay Bafna October 5, 2009 6:55 pm

    Rocky :

    Sanjay Bafna : Does the unlimited plans have fair usage policy like airtel or tata indicom?

    If so would be the fup limit?

    @Rocky No FUP for Data usage. With BSNL Unlimited Plans you can download as much as you want, there is no data usage limitations

  • Rahul October 5, 2009 6:44 pm

    Hari :Though its a good move from BSNL but too late I can say.
    Well currently I have Airtel 1 mbps unlimited(1699 plan) plus Rupees 600 worth goodies(I pay around Rs 1870/- per month including all taxes) and I downloaded more than 35 GB last month.
    In this plan Airtel has CAP of 60 GB download/upload per month. After exceeding this limit my speed will be half i.e 512 kbps.
    Still its a far better than 25 GB limited CAP and 256kbps speed of BSNL. So tell me why should I buy BSNL .. ??
    And I am very much sure that Airtel got far better service and customer satisfaction than BSNL.

    Its clear that With BSNL you can save Rs.200 Plus per month and if you go for annual payment than more saving with BSNL in compare to Airtel.
    If you sastified with your current operator than there is no need to discuss it.

    I have H500C[home 500 combo] of bsnl. The speed is 2Mbps and i have the facility of night unlimited [2 am - 8 am]. With this plan I get 175 free national & local calls and a data cap of 1.5GB with night unlimited. My avg. usages is 40GB/month. Usually I get charged Rs.552/month. So I think it’s clear now that why should u buy bsnl.

    I will second Anuj.Technically ‘b’ stands bits and ‘B’ stands for Bytes.And 1 Byte=8 bits.And again bandwidth (generally termed as speed)is always measured in bits, not in Bytes.

    @ Anuj and Mr.Gupta, Thanks for that, I just write that in caps to Highlighting the speed of Broadband Plans.
    because its news of SPEED..

    Ya thats good that your purpose was highlighting the things but these small small things can mislead the peoples & turn down the credibility of your article. Thats why you will never see that official ads or media releases by companies mentioning their speeds in MBPS or KBPS though they also want to highlight things but they do use some other ways for that.

  • Anuj October 5, 2009 11:43 am

    one mistake in above comments by me: 198 mbps speed is ‘not’ (i have written now instead) possible anywhere in world

  • Anuj October 5, 2009 11:41 am

    Sanjay Bafna :
    Dear Anuj, Nothing is impossible for BSNL in terms of Telecom/Broadband.
    24mbps speed is possible and BSNL giving that as they announced.

    I think you got it wrong. I know 24mbps is possible for BSNL or any other company but you have mentioned 24MBPS (again i would say be clear about difference between ‘b’ & ‘B’. i have already expalined it). 24 M’B’PS means 198 m’b’ps which is not possible anywhere in world ( as as of now only south korea have speeds just little above 100 mbps). I hope you got it now. Only correction in short your post needs is that replace speeds in KBPS/MBPS to Kbps/Mbps. Thats it!

  • Sanjay Bafna October 5, 2009 11:25 am

  • Anuj October 5, 2009 11:22 am

    Only combo 1499 & 2999 comes with FUP like limitations as speed will get rationalized after specific data transfer.

    @ Sanjay Bafna, as I already mentioned, you need to edit MBPS as Mbps & KBPS as Kbps. As you have mentioned lowest speed 256 KBPS, its 256 Kbps. 256 KBPS means 256*8=2048 Kbps or 2 Mbps & highest speed you mentioned 24 MBPS means 198 Mbps which is not possible at all. Its all difference between ‘B'(which stands for file size) & ‘b'(which stands for file transfer rate). Data transfer speed is always expressed in term of ‘b’.

    • Sanjay Bafna October 5, 2009 11:32 am

      Dear Anuj, Nothing is impossible for BSNL in terms of Telecom/Broadband.

    Yes it is 100% true, BSNL website will be updated soon

  • Sanjay Bafna October 5, 2009 10:51 am

    B Gupta :

    FUP has been implemented in both 1499 UL and 2999 UL.Speed would come down to 256 kbps after using 25 GB and 50 GB respectively.I don’t know why the article writer mentioned these plans as fully unlimited!

    Look at here:

    Dear Mr. Gupta, The Data Downloads Cap is Unlimited in the BSNL Unlimited plans according to the BSNL circular (which is with us and also u have that as you shared the link of that). The Bandwidth limitations or condition as you said in the comments is implemented with Home Unlimited Plans due to technically feasibility in some Zone/circles.
    On Telecom Talk we write “FULLY UNLIMITED” in column of “FREE Data Downloads” and that is 100% True, like Subscriber of BSNL Unlimited Plans can able to download as much as he/she want.
    You also can verify this with the BSNL official circular which is already with you.
    Thanks

  • San October 5, 2009 1:35 am

    India still lags behind countries which have far better broadband connectivity. Broadband connection having 256kbps connection are now child’s play. So BSNL’s role in improving the situation should be greeted warmly and just hope that other service providers too follow the same suit soon.

  • RDB October 5, 2009 1:19 am

    @B Gupta
    ahh i dnt expect they reduce d tariff, but expectin upgrade 2Mbps plans to 4Mbps and doubled free usage !

  • B Gupta October 5, 2009 1:11 am

    I expected only reduced rental but it seems that’s not going to happen.

  • Anuj October 5, 2009 1:07 am

    RDB :
    I guess this plans are not launched yet, when these are launched I hope our existing plans will be cheaper by some ways –
    1. bandwidth upgrade
    2. more free usage
    3. reduced charge on extra data usage after free value
    4. plan value reduced
    5. some of them or all of the above !!

    I never expect bandwidth upgrade with BSNL. Even if it do not hat FUP limit, BSNL rationalise use to rationalise bandwidth heavily. You can easily notice difference between speeds of UL & normal plans. If you see 250 L plan, it offers even more than 300 kbps speed though defined speed is 256kbps. But case is completly opposite with UL plans. With UL750, its hard(i would say impossible) to get reliable speed of 250 Kbps. So its rationalization of speed which is nothing but like FUP.
