State-run telco Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has revised its Rs 1,199 family plan, which used to offer both broadband and mobile services. The Rs 1,199 Family plan will still offer both the benefits, but the telco has upgraded the benefits to lure more consumers on board. Known as BBG Combo ULD 1199 Family, this plan providers broadband and mobile services for one month at zero cost. A user opting for this plan will be allowed to choose three BSNL prepaid numbers to enjoy the free benefits. The benefits of the plan include free 10 Mbps broadband connection up to 30GB per billing cycle; three mobile BSNL prepaid SIM cards can be added with complete free services; free ringtone; free online TV, of which details are unknown at the moment.
Digging deep into the benefits, the Rs 1,199 BBG Combo ULD Family offers a 10 Mbps broadband connection per month with FUP of 30GB. Post the FUP, users can enjoy download speed at 2 Mbps for the rest of the month.
After availing this plan, users will be required to choose three BSNL prepaid numbers for which they want to avail the free mobile services. Each number is applicable for unlimited voice calls including roaming calls and 1GB data per day. Post the 1GB data, users will get 40 Kbps data speed. Earlier, the same plan used to offer 1GB data for all the three numbers and that too for the entire plan validity period. However, that’s not the case anymore as the telco decided to offer 1GB data per day for all the three BSNL connections. That said, users will not receive any SMS benefits.
Having said that, the revised plan will be effective from April 1, 2018. This is such as a great move from the government-owned PSU as it will help the company add more broadband/telecom subscribers. Do make a note that this is not a new plan as the company just revised the daily data benefit for each SIM card.
On the whole, BSNL is providing a great plan for both the broadband and telecom consumers alike. While broadband data doesn’t inspire confidence, the company is nailing it with the telecom data per user.
