BSNL Increases FUP Limit on Three FTTH Broadband Plans by 50GB

Government-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has increased the FUP limit on three of its FTTH plans by 50GB. The three broadband plans in question are BSNL Fibro BBG ULD 1045 CS48, BSNL Fibro BBG ULD 1395 CS49 and BSNL Fibro BBG ULD 1895 CS129. The plans are priced at Rs 1045, Rs 1,395 and Rs 1,895 and they now offer 50GB more data than the earlier FUP. The Rs 1045 plan offers broadband speeds of 30 Mbps, followed by the Rs 1,395 plan with 40 Mbps speeds and lastly, the premium Rs 1,895 plan gives the user download speeds of up to 50 Mbps. On the whole, this is a nice move from BSNL considering Jio’s goals in the broadband segment.

The base FTTH plan of Rs 1045 now offers 30 Mbps speeds till 150GB and the Rs 1,395 plan provides speeds of 40 Mbps till 200GB. The premium Rs 1,895 BSNL FTTH plan gives a user 50 Mbps of data speeds and 250GB of FUP per month. All the three plans come with 2 Mbps after FUP speed. Other benefits offered by these plans are unlimited voice calls within BSNL network, unlimited voice calls to any network between 10:30 PM and 6 AM and free voice calling on Sundays. Earlier, the same plans offered 100GB, 150GB and 200GB FUP limit on a monthly basis.

All the existing BSNL broadband users will get the revised FUP benefit from their next monthly rental, while the new customers will receive the revised benefits right away. As of now, it’s said that these new plans are meant only for Kerala circle, but the telco might revise them on a pan-India basis in the coming weeks.

The Mukesh Ambani-led firm Reliance Jio is aiming to grab 50 million broadband users going forward. With over ten years of operations, BSNL managed to grab just over 10 million subscribers, even after providing users affordable offers. Increasing FUP limit on broadband plans is a good move from the state-run PSU, but it’s nowhere close to what private broadband players are offering. For example, Airtel has done away with the FUP limit on its broadband plans in Hyderabad city and it’s expected to remove FUP limit on broadband plans in all the cities. ACT Fibernet, on the other hand, silently increased the data speeds on some of its broadband plans in Hyderabad city. It will be interesting to see how BSNL retains its market share in the future.

What’s the UPLOAD SPEED? You bloggers always forget to mention the upload speed which is more important than download speed. Every bsnl broadband plan has max. of 45 kbps upload speed and is not usuable. You can even video call in skype or any other messanger. Anyband should have atleast 3 mbps. Even Jio has hell lot faster upload speed.

FTTH upload speed is same as download speed. You can get 50Mbps upload and download speed for Rs.777 per month on BSNL FIBRO ULD 777 plan all over india where bsnl ftth network is available. You also get a unlimited landline connection with it.

Stop posting false. I am getting nearly 1 Mbps (above 110 KB / s. Yes KB / s) upload speed in my BSNL wired broadband connectiom since 2016 because they gave configured 1040 Kbps as the upload and 9999 Kbps as the download link speed* which is configured at the BSNL switch room Salem (Tamilnadu) for my place. Use VDSL modem and post the link speed*.

* means : The speed between the VDSL or ADSL modem and the exchange switch at the SSA level.

Few months down the line, the headline/news on TT would be…”BSNL Increases FUP Limit on FTTH Broadband Plans by 500-5000GB due to Jio effect”. Lol… BSNL is finished… Copper can never compete with Fiber and low class (BSNL) can never compete with high class (Jio).

BSNL is good for nothing. BSNL don’t have pan India presence. If selected areas got BSNL coverage in every state is pan India according to you. Then I can’t stop laughing. What is BSNL doing if it is having pan India presence according to you. Thenga? Asking for bribe? Dare to provide good fiber broadband connection before Jio here in a rural place? They have BSNL office here, but good for nothing. Jio will provide Jio Giga TV over fiber. BSNL have guts to do that before Jio provides? You BSNL employees give some time to listen to your customers,… Read more »
