BSNL Broadband Plans to Offer Initial Speeds of 10 Mbps and 8 Mbps from November 1, 2017

State-run telecom operator BSNL has made a big change to its existing broadband plans. BSNL confirmed that it has increased base speed of its unlimited broadband plans to 10 Mbps and 8 Mbps respectively. This new change will be effective from November 1, 2017.


According to, BSNL broadband plans priced above Rs. 675 will offer download speed of 10 Mbps, and the plans priced below Rs. 675 will offer 8 Mbps download speed. This revision is applicable to all the BSNL broadband plans on a pan-India basis including the circle specific plans and FTTH plans. As said earlier, this new revision will be applicable starting next month.

At the same time, BSNL has announced that it’s withdrawing the BBG Combo ULD 1441 and BBG Speed Combo ULD 2841 broadband plans for new users.

Having said that, the best part of this revision is that the popular Experience Unlimited Broadband 249 will now offer base speed of 8 Mbps till 5GB and 1 Mbps beyond 5GB. Recently, BSNL revised the Experience Unlimited Broadband 249 plan by extending its validity for another three months and also increased the FUP to 5GB from the previous 1GB. Currently, the Experience Unlimited Broadband 249 plan is offering up to 2 Mbps speed till 5GB and 1 Mbps beyond the FUP. After the revision also, the after FUP speed is 1 Mbps.

“In order to offer ‘upto 10 Mbps’ & ‘upto 8 Mbps’ initial download speed (subject to technical feasibility) across all the DSL/FTTH Broadband plans [PAN India/Circle Specific (except A&N circle)] with FMC ? Rs. 675/- & FMC < Rs.675 respectively, which are currently being offered to the customers in different circles/PAN India basis,” said an official BSNL statement.

At the moment, BSNL is the leading wired broadband leader in India with a market share of 59.63% as of June 2017. This news was revealed by Trai recently. BSNL, as of June 2017 has 12.92 million subscribers under its belt, leading the market by a huge margin. And this change will improve the subscriber addition of BSNL broadband.

What kind of snr you people are getting after the increase in speed by BSNL

December 27, 2017 11:23 am 11:23 AM

3 to 6 . after increasing the speed snr value drops dramatically resulting in frequent disconnection. even though i am eligible for 8 mbps connection due to the disconnection they have set my speed to 4 mbps. Bsnl gave me a reply that since all the lines are old it cant bare the increase in load that is why frequent disconnection happens. Good that BSNL have improved the speed but only a very few (mostly users near exchange) can get its benefits .

first bsnl should resolve the frequent disconnection and speed decrease problem of its broadband users.then think about 8mbps and 10mbps speed.
