People are over 4G speeds offered in India already. They need something faster and that is why they rely on fiber broadband plans from different operators. A lot of operators have come to the market offering high broadband speeds using fiber technology. Some of the common names of providers are BSNL, Airtel, and Jio. One of the plans which a lot of people are looking for is a 50 Mbps internet speed plan. Telcos such as BSNL, Netplus, Connect Broadband, Netplus, and Foxcell provide their users with 50 Mbps speed plans. But it is not the same with Bharti Airtel and Jio. Airtel and Jio both provide their base plans with 100 Mbps speed. It is worth mentioning that some of the 50 Mbps plans are priced more expensive than what Airtel and Jio offer their 100 Mbps speed plan for. Airtel Xstream Fiber offers 100 Mbps speed plan for Rs 799 (exclusive of 18% GST) and JioFiber offers its base plan of 100 Mbps for Rs 699 (exclusive of 18% GST). Let’s take a look at 50 Mbps plans from BSNL, Connect Broadband, Netplus, and Foxcell.
BSNL very recently launched its 50 Mbps fiber plans in Punjab circle. There are a total of 3 plans which offer 50 Mbps speed. The first plan is ‘200GB CS111 Monthly’ and it offers 200GB data to users at 50 Mbps speed. After the 200GB is exhausted, users can continue browsing at 4 Mbps speed. It is priced at Rs 490.
The second plan is ‘300GB CS112 Monthly’. It comes with 300GB monthly data at 50 Mbps speed and post FUP limit the speed reduces to 4 Mbps. It is priced at Rs 590. There is another broadband plan which offers a similar benefit to this plan in the Punjab circle which is the ‘Superstar 300GB’ plan. It comes for Rs 749. The only difference is that after exhaustion of 300GB data, the speed reduces to 2 Mbps in the Superstar 300GB plan.
The third plan is ‘PUN 400GB Monthly’ and it offers 400GB data every month at 50 Mbps speed. Post exhaustion of the FUP limit of data, users can continue browsing at 4 Mbps. The only difference between the 400GB plan and the 300GB and 200GB plan is that the 400GB plan offers unlimited voice calling whereas the others don’t.
