BSNL Gets Rid of Daily FUP Limit on Rs 777 and Rs 1,277 Broadband Plans

BSNL broadband plans are getting a lot of revisions in recent times. While there are some consumer-centric moves from the company, there are some revisions which the consumers did not like at all. Especially, the revision which irked several users out there is the implementation of daily FUP data on FTTH broadband plans. At the start of 2019, the state-run telco revised all its FTTH broadband plans to offer daily data. Even the entry-level Rs 777 and Rs 1,277 broadband plans from the company were revised with daily data offering, but that’s changing now as the Internet Service Provider (ISP) has removed the daily data limit on the said two plans. The Rs 777 plan offered 18GB daily data per day, but there’s no such limit now.

Revision of Rs 777 and Rs 1277 Fibre Broadband Plan Details

In its February revision of plans, the Fibro Combo ULD 777 plan was converted into ‘18GB plan’ as it was providing 18GB of data per day with 50 Mbps speed. Now the same plan has been converted to ‘500GB plan’ as it offers 500GB data without any daily limit. The data speed will be 50 Mbps up to 500GB data; after that, the speed will be throttled down to 2 Mbps. Rs 1277 plan which was named ‘25GB plan’ was offering 25GB data per day, and it was also changed in the latest revision to provide 750GB data in the billing cycle with 100 Mbps speed and a post-FUP speed of 2 Mbps.

Unchanged Plans in BSNL Fibre Broadband Portfolio

The rest of the plans in the BSNL Fibre portfolio remain unchanged. The Rs 2499 plan which is also named as ‘40GB plan’ offers 40GB daily data to the subscribers at 100 Mbps and provides a post-FUP speed of 2 Mbps. Subsequently, the 50GB plan offers 50GB data per day with 100 Mbps speed and post-FUP speed of 4 Mbps. The monthly rental for this plan is Rs 3999. BSNL also has more fibre plans which include an 80GB plan for Rs 5999, 120GB plan for Rs 9999 and 170GB plan for Rs 16999. All these plans offer a speed of 100 Mbps and a post-FUP speed of 4 Mbps.

Revision Likely to Please BSNL Fibre Broadband Customers

It is worth noting that BSNL had previously converted some of its non-fibre broadband plans into daily data plans and the move wasn’t well received by the consumers. The probable reason is that a broadband customer is likely to have a massive data usage which might be sometimes hindered by a daily data limit and since the plans in the lower rungs offer much less daily data limit, it is easier to run into a brick wall when you exhaust your FUP daily data. As such, the new move is going to be a pleasing one for the subscribers of these BSNL fibre broadband plans as they will get to enjoy their entire data limit without any interruption.
