BSNL To stop its full value 3G Combo Plans, Tablets Plans & Combo Data Vouchers Starting November 11

Back in 2011 BSNL launched four consumer friendly combo plans for its prepaid, postpaid and Prepaid 3G mobile users across all telecom circles now BSNL has decided to stop the combo plans. These plans such as Rs 300 Rs 500 , Rs 100 & Rs 2000 will be stopped by BSNL starting November 11.

    if you have samsung phone then type on dialing screen – *#197328640# – debug screen – phone control – nas control – rrc control – change revision – touch the first option – r99 0ff – then again touch and then press back key.

    hsdpa will be switched off . you will get speed – 250 – 460 KBPS and sometimes during day it will be capped to 60 KBPS , sometimes.

      @Kingston:
      *121# showing same from last month.But it’s one-time offer only

      Aircel (chennai) placed 3g packs so closely!!!
      128 -30 Days-1 GB (Post Free usage charges apply at 1p/10 KB within pack validity)
      133-30 Days-1.25 GB 3G/2G Data
      193-30 Days- Unlimited Data – 1.9 GB 3G/2G High Speed Data post which speeds are throttled to 64 Kbps
      198-30 days-1.5 GB 3G + Unlimited 2G

      Same for 393,399 & 693,697 & 993,997. What is meant by unlimited 2g? How much kbps is guaranteed? Is there any FUP for that too? Pls confirm

      64kbps for some packs..no thanks..had a long fight with nodal team about speed after FUP 4 months back.They concluded they cannot give any commitment on that :(
      My 1st 3g pack gave 128kbps continuously after FUP, 2nd pack gave 80-100kbps, 3rd pack gave 30-50kbps only :(

    i don’t know what is problem with bsnl. i am living 200 mts. from telephone exchange while using internet network keeps changing from umts to hsdpa to umts , due to which speed keeps fluctuating between 2kBps to 150 kBs and other places i get speed between 50 kBs to 300kBs.

      sir, while using internet on phone if you have both 3g and 2g signal. keep settings in the 3g mode only( not in dual mode). this will improve the download speed.

      That is the problem with BSNL. The connection is never steady. Don’t believe BSNL people who make fun of you by saying that you have to use 3G mode. They know that we are using 3G but they just give these silly answers. I think the above comment by Naresh Kumar falls into that category.

    @SS, Are they still providing 350 mins pack there? Here they revised that pack in July or August and brought back 400 mins or 24,000 sec Loc+Nat for Rs.150 for 31 days via recharge or 133.50 via SMS. With this, another pack was launched with 900 mins or 54,000 sec of usage for 60 days @Rs.310 via recharge and 275.70 via sms. These packs were going to end here on Oct 17 but later extended it now to Jan 17, 2014 looking at its popularity. :)

      Yes, its still being provided and its more surprisingly, they have withdrawn that from your circle??? I mean its a kind of life saver for BSNL. If you look at the rate cutters then you would find that STV below Rs 60 is utter waste. Who’s gonna spend more than Rs 60 (in extra) to make your STD call cheap.

      If BSNL does this idiotic activity here then bye bye BSNL, because we have uninor. Even though i wouldn’t opt for it since Vodafone Rs 24 STV which provides all STD call @ 35p/min is the best option. Would port to Vodafone if it happens :-)

    BSNL is now missing 500MB 30 days pack and 1GB 7 days pack. BSNL should relaunch it for 3G. This will suite both heavy users and light users.

      You have hacked my mind.
      From my heart I wanted to say the same thing.
      Ha Ha Ha Ha
      BSNL has become a joke.
      I think a category should be created on BSNL named “Bsnl Jokes” just like santabanta jokes, funny jokes etc.

        well you dont about bsnl at all. bsnl is giving 1gb 3g at rs.139
        while all others are charging rs.250 for the same. bsnl has better coverage than all others in my a.p abiding to the rules of radiation. it is the highest gainer in m.n.p here.

    I can’t find any reason for the step taken. Decision may be taken for some other reason but not a thing to mind for me. I use voice STV Rs 135- 350 mins and else nothing on BSNL. Internet totally sucks (3G too) and no proper off net SMS packs.

      Same here. I am not getting any internet. Complained atleast 7 times. Nothing happened. I think problem is with my local tower because in other places I am getting around 600Kbps.

        Even if you complain 1000 times, BTS related problems are never solved by BSNL and please stay away from BSNL employees and CC because they will redirect you from here and there. Same Sarkari dadagiri, kamchor kahi ke sare. :-@

        I also have problem with BSNL 3G. I have good speed of 1.5Mbps to 2.5Mbps. But signal is very weak. I know 3G signal are usually weak. But I can see the tower from my home. It is just 1KM away. Also have full 2G coverage from the same tower. Even idea 3G have better signal which tower is 3KM away.

        I think BSNL didn’t put 3G antenna towards my side. So complained to them and they said they look into the issue. Hope they solve it soon.

          @Tarun: Are you from Kerala? Even I have the same, e problem at my home! 220kB/s @ 1 asu signal strength yet the same speed at 10asu. But if I goto the town area, I get around 1628kB/s!!

            I am from kerala. Since signal is very low, my device heats up and also most callers will here not reachable message when I am on 3G mode.

            1628KB/s? That is unbelievable? In which town you get it? Here in my town speed drops further down to 300kbps.

              I am from kottayam! I am just 2 km away from the town but speeds drop to 220kB/s due to the local tower but in town, the speed rocks!! And I Don’t face any of the problems you told…..!!

                I am also from kottayam. In town my friends also report very lugish speed on BSNL. Speed drops to 2G level at nights. I think they 7.2Mbps BTS in town and which used by 100 of people at time.

                Like trivandrum they should upgrade all towns BTS to 21.1Mbps.

        • Akhil Mohan November 6, 2013 8:34 pm, 8:34 PM

          Go to official BSNL Kottayam facebook page . They have put a post saying that BSNL towers emit less radiation. That’s the reason for low signal. It’s because of this reason the mobiles heat up very badly during calls and while using internet. Also BSNL is more taxing on the battery. It may be good for the environment but we arent concerned about the environment right :)

            I already did it last week and they said will look into the issue.

            Today I am getting better signal and also speed sky rocked. I got 6.40mbps on speedtest. So in fact they have 7.2Mbps BTS on all new towers.
