BSNL Rs 1,199 Family Combo Plan Continues to Be a Unique Offering Even After JioFiber Launch

The Rs 1,199 Family Combo plan from BSNL brings broadband, landline and mobile SIM services under one bill

Highlights
  • The Rs 1,199 Combo Family Plan from BSNL offers 10 Mbps broadband plan
  • The mobile SIMs ship with 1GB daily data and unlimited voice calling

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has some interesting offerings under its belt and one of them is the Rs 1,199 Family Combo plan that offers both broadband and mobile network services to the customers. The BSNL BBG Combo ULD 1199 Family is a combo plan that ships with basic broadband plan benefit alongside mobile network services like free daily data and unlimited voice calling option. Reliance JioFiber broadband plans are now out and the company has confirmed they’ll start at Rs 799 for the basic plan with maybe just broadband offering. What’s interesting is that Jio did not announce any plans to offer 4G and JioFiber services with one plan like BSNL’s Rs 1,199 broadband plan. Reliance Jio said that the company’s JioFiber plans would ship with bundled Television and Broadband services, but it nowhere mentioned the availability of 4G services with a single plan, and here’s where the Rs 1,199 plan gains an advantage even though it ships with mediocre benefits.

BSNL Rs 1,199 Family Combo Plan is a Solution for All Services

In the United Kingdom, Vodafone provides three services under one plan- mobile network, broadband and landline. However, in India, only BSNL right now is providing such service to the customers. The Rs 1,199 Family Combo plan is an example of that. The BSNL Rs 1,199 Family Combo Plan offers a broadband plan with 10 Mbps speeds and 30GB FUP limit per day, post which the speeds will be reduced to 2 Mbps and there’s no FUP limit on after FUP speeds. The plan also provides a user with unlimited landline calling to any network within India, something that comes in extremely handy for several users.

Alongside the broadband plan, users will also get three mobile SIM card connections with interesting benefits. All the three mobile SIMs will offer unlimited free voice calling to any network within India, 1GB daily data with after FUP speeds of 80 Kbps and free Personalised Ringback Tone.

Additionally, BSNL is offering free online TV access to one mobile SIM connection. All these benefits are available at a price of Rs 1,199 per month. Even if a customer chooses all these plans individually, the price will be over Rs 2,000, so the BSNL Rs 1,199 is a steal deal right now for users in search of affordable combo broadband and mobile network plan.

JioFiber Broadband Plans to Start at Rs 700 and it May Not Worry BSNL Broadband at All

Yesterday, Reliance Jio unveiled its offerings under the JioFiber broadband service. The Mukesh Ambani-owned company will offer high-speed broadband plans to customers starting at Rs 700 and the speeds will begin from 100 Mbps. In contrast, BSNL is offering broadband plans even with 5 Mbps speeds to the customers and they start at just Rs 99. BSNL’s Rs 777 or Rs 749 Super Star 300 plan ships with 50 Mbps speeds till 300GB along with other benefits like Amazon Prime membership, Hotstar Premium subscription and so on.

Reliance Jio also said that its JioFiber plans would also come with access to premium OTT services, however, details of these will only be revealed on September 5 when the service launches commercially.

Nice. I guess barely anyone is on BSNL as most of Goans are fed up of BSNL services. Where do you stay? I’m in Moira.
