BSNL launches unlimited Satellite Phone-based internet access facility

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) on Monday launched unlimited internet access facility to various MHA security agencies through Satellite Phone or DSPT at Rs 7,099 under DSPT plan ‘DSPT UL 7099’. The state-owned telecom service provider said that it is offering speeds at 64 kbps under the plan.


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.

The telco also claimed that it is the only telecom carrier which is providing unlimited internet facility through DSPT at such cheaper rate to the nation serving security agencies.

BSNL had last month launched a new special tariff voucher of Rs 26 which gives unlimited voice calls to all networks for 26 hours. The validity of this offer is upto 31st March 2017, the company said.

The telco had then also launched Rs 149 plan voucher as promotional offer that will allow its prepaid customers to make free local and STD voice calls to all operators for first 30 days. The telco had then said that its customers will also have an option to get the free unlimited calls for a period of 3 months by paying lump sum amount of Rs 439 which is equivalent to slightly less than Rs 14 per month ( at the time of taking new connection).

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.

On 64 kbps speed we cannot even access Google. Presently min of speed is 2 Mbps.

It is useful for voice and transfer very little but very very important message through whatsapp or others…

All mobile cover approximately 70% of total area or 90% total population

Don’t be jealous of others. People will use as much as they wish to. Your liking it or not doesn’t matter. You sound like a control freak.

it’s not for downloading & streaming the kids like you, these services are used to exchange important messages

So do we mean that ourMHA guys are struggling now while sharing important info and use this 64kbps 5G satellite fancy technology to send data?

this is just a gimmick just to show they are offering something out of the world.

Moreover if this is for securoty agencies wouldnt bsnl consider keeping this a secret? Rather than publicising it?

Last but not the least granny (since you calling me a kid), my iphone fumbles to send emails even while i am on 2G. Forget 64kbps and the data that will be shared on this bandwidth. 🙂

February 15, 2017 11:39 am 11:39 AM

I agree with you. Most of bsnl plans are not at all useful. They also know that 64 kbps is not at all useful. It’s only a show off. 5G n/w is coming up in market but still bsnl do not have 4G facility. It’s shame on bsnl.

I agree that bsnl doesnt have 4G. However try their 1099 unlimited data prepaid plan. I keep travelling so had to surrender my 40mbps airtel broadband. So far speed has been satisfactory at 2-6mbps mostly. Have used almost 24gb so far in the process of setting up my new pc

BSNL is using NSS 6 satellite for this service which isn’t Indian in the first place so I guess this service isn’t for top secret communication. Security agencies have their own ways to communicate with encryption and all.

February 14, 2017 6:42 am 6:42 AM

64 kbps? Seriously?

February 14, 2017 2:08 pm 2:08 PM

This internet is coming from satellite. You can’t get anything better from satellite. This is limitation of satellite but the advantage is that no networks are required, this internet will work any where and everywhere.

This is not true that satellites can’t offer high speed Internet. Just that it’s not possible on satellite phones as you’d need a DTH type dish to catch signals. Commercially upto 25 Mbps connections are provided through satellites at many places.
