BSNL Extends BB249 Plan’s Validity to One Year from Six Months for All the Existing and New Users: Report

By May 4th, 2017 AT 3:54 PM

Another week, another change in BSNL’s broadband plan, but this time to the popular Experience Unlimited BB249 Plan, which is offering unlimited broadband data at just Rs. 249 for six months with a download speed of 2 Mbps till 1GB, and 1 Mbps after 1GB.


According to a report from, BSNL will be extending the validity to one-year, instead of six months. This essentially means that you can get unlimited internet for one year at just Rs. 249 per month. Previously, the plan was valid for six months, after six billing cycles, BSNL used to shift the users to BBG ULD 499 plan.

The conversion from BB249 to BBG UL 449 still exists, but it will only be done after one-year. This change in scheme will be valid for all the existing and new customers who already have or intend to join the plan. The report also says that the change will be effective from May 8, 2017, on a pan-India basis, but it won’t be applicable for the residents of Jammu & Kashmir and Andaman & Nicobar islands.

BSNL recently revised download speed for almost all its broadband plans to 4 Mbps from 2 Mbps, but the company excluded the BB249 plan from that list, which could be the reason for this change.

The state-run telecom operator, nearly a month ago extended the BB249 broadband plan till June 30, 2017, which was about to expire on March 31, 2017. For the uninitiated, BSNL’s promotional plans will usually be valid for three months. Later on, the company could change it accordingly to the market scenario or just withdraw the offer.

With the overwhelming response received by the BB249 plan, BSNL decided to extend it to another three months, and this change will undoubtedly result in getting more subscribers under its belt. Do note that if a customer has already migrated to BB4 ULD 499 plan from the BB2249 scheme, this change won’t apply to them.
