The telecom operator, in a statement, said that it received a number of requests from various security agencies to reduce the rate of unlimited internet access facility at 64Kbps through DSPT from prevailing Rs 9,999 per month with applicable service tax to an affordable price stating that DSPT services are the only mode of communication to the troop deployed in border areas, different terrain areas and remotest places etc on pan-India basis.

BSNL said that it considered their requests and reduced the rate from Rs 9,999 per month (service tax extra) to Rs 7,099 per month (service tax extra) in respect of unlimited internet facility through DSPT services.

DSPT (Digital Satellite Phone Terminal) is a hub which gives access to states PSTN network and internet at 64Kbps, but this speed is restricted only for M2M (Machine to Machine) communication i.e communication between the server and the light weight Client OS, this is used as a backup communication in addition to INMARSAT’s BGAN internet for speeds upto 4Mbps and AFNET(Airforce Network) Satellite internet at 96Mbps. And BSNL is the only agency which is providing a Unlimted plan which is 40 Times less then what INMARSAT’s BGAN internet Charges.

So a fancy dialup connection? Imagine if the security personnel has some important images or videos of enemy movement and wants to transfer them to base. However we know the imitations of satellite phone based communication so something’s better than nothing.
