BSNL Overhauls Entire Broadband Tariff Portfolio to Compete With Airtel V-Fiber

Following its tradition of revising broadband plans, BSNL has made changes to entire broadband tariff portfolio. With this move, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) is looking to compete with the likes of Airtel V-Fiber and Reliance Jio GigaFiber. BSNL has now made minor changes to its broadband plans priced between Rs 249 and Rs 2295. As we reported recently, the entry-level BB249 plan now offers three times more FUP. Some broadband plans from BSNL has received FUP limit extension while some plans now offer faster download speeds.


BSNL Revised Broadband Plans Under Rs 1000

Under Rs 1000, BSNL offers a total of 10 plans with speeds up to 10 Mbps and 70GB FUP limit. Firstly, the BB249 plan has been revised to provide a 5 Mbps connection until 15GB from the previous 5GB limit. Next on the list, we have the BSNL BBG Combo ULD 499 plan, which after revision, gives a user 8 Mbps speeds until 25GB. The BSNL BBG ULD 545 broadband plan also received a revision and now offering 30GB of data per month. All the three plans mentioned above offers a post FUP speed of 1 Mbps.

Other plans which got a revision are BSNL BBG Combo ULD 675, BSNL BBG ULD 795, BSNL BBG Combo ULD 845, BSNL BBO ULD 949 and BSNL BBG Combo ULD 999. The Rs 675 broadband plan from BSNL now provides a user up to 35GB of data at 10 Mbps speeds, followed by the Rs 795 plan whose FUP has been upgraded to 45GB. All the five plans mentioned above come with 10 Mbps speeds, but the FUP differs. The Rs 845 plan comes with a FUP of 50GB FUP; the Rs 949 plan gives 70GB of FUP per month and lastly, the Rs 999 plan also comes with a monthly FUP of 70GB. All the five plans do come with 2 Mbps after FUP speed and there’s no data limit as well.

BSNL Revised Broadband Plans Between Rs 1000 and Rs 2,500

BSNL has a total of four broadband plans priced between Rs 1000 and Rs 2,500. The BBG Combo ULD 1199, BBG ULD 1275, BBG Combo ULD 1495 and BBG Speed Combo ULD 2295 are the plans in question. The popular Rs 1,199 plan now comes with a FUP of 80GB per month, and it offers speeds at 10 Mbps. The BBG ULD 1275 broadband plan has been revised as well to give a FUP of 120GB every month, and the Rs 1,495 plan now offers a FUP of 140GB. Finally, we have the Rs 2,295 broadband plan offering a 24 Mbps broadband connection with 200GB FUP every month.

These Broadband Plans Offer Unlimited Voice Calling Too

All these broadband plans do come with voice calling option too. For the unaware, BSNL offers unlimited voice calling with its BBG Combo plans, but the voice calling on weekdays is capped between 10:30 PM to 6 AM, while on Sundays, users can make unlimited voice calls to any number within India.

BSNL Revised These Plans on Pan-India Basis

Another thing worth noting is that BSNL has made a revision to these plans on a pan-India basis. All the changes made to the broadband plans mentioned above will be effective from September 1, 2018. Earlier, BSNL has revised some broadband plans for Chennai city.

Can you please explain how BSNL is eating away people’s tax money? As far as I know BSNL is working without any government aid, with self earned money,not on tax payers money.Moreover it is giving huge taxes to government and also huge money for spectrum charges just like private operators and those money are being utilised by the government for the development of our country.If you know how Tax money is being poured into BSNL,Kindly elaborate.

And in this endeavor to compete with Giants like Jio and Airtel fiber, BSNL has provided petty incentives like increasing the FUP of <RS.1000 plans by 10 gb and withdrawing the most important Happy Browsing offer which was the sole reason they could keep their user base satisfied and not abandon them for more lucrative ISP's. With Happy Browsing offer gone from this month BSNL has doomed themselves. Way to go BSNL!

Since the past 2-3 days people had been complaining that they couldn’t activate Happy Browsing and their speeds were reduced to mentioned Post-FUP speed which led many to infer that Happy Browsing offer had been withdrawn by BSNL from this month as none of the links to activate it were working. Turned out it was a glitch in the system of BSNL and after receiving several complaints, they fixed it. So, Happy Browsing is STILL working.
