Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) is offering one free Bharat Air Fiber connection to its franchisees, who are normally referred to as Radio Broadband Service Provider (RBSP). The state-run telco will be offering a free 40 Mbps plan with the connection to the eligible franchisees. But not any franchisee can get a free connection from the company. For becoming eligible for this offer from BSNL, the Bharat Air Fiber franchisees will have to provide at least 50 FTTH connections. If there’s a franchise that has already provided more than 50 FTTH connections until now, it will automatically become eligible for the offer.
BSNL Free Bharat Air Fiber Connection Offer Details
As per a KeralaTelecom report, BSNL said it would be providing a free demo of Bharat Air Fiber connection with the Airfiber Basic Plus plan that offers 40 Mbps speed and costs Rs 699 to each office of the eligible Air Fiber channel partner who has provisioned a minimum of 50 broadband connections.
Note that this demo connection can only be used by BSNL franchisees for testing purposes. The franchisees are not allowed to sell the demo connection to anyone. For the demo connection, BSNL won’t be issuing any bills.
What Is BSNL Bharat Air Fiber Connection?
The fiber connections and terrestrial network can’t be provided in very rural areas because of less population and no economic advantage; people living in such areas can’t access basic digital tools to enhance their quality of life. To bridge the digital gap between such areas and the rest of India, BSNL announced the Bharat Air Fiber service.
Under this service, BSNL utilises the unlicensed Wi-Fi spectrum to provide internet. It is completely wireless, so the users living in rural areas can also get consistent internet services. The company offers Bharat Air Fiber services starting at Rs 499 per month. BSNL will also offer the service where its rural towers are present, but there is no FTTH presence.
