BSNL Revises Postpaid Combo Broadband Plans – Now Free Calls Limited to BSNL Network Only

India’s largest telecommunication company, state-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) is in loss, and tring hard to improve its financial status by following top private players like Airtel, Vodafone and Idea. BSNL took some moves which are never going to be popular among subscribers – charging Rs 100 for 2G SIM replacement (that’s probably highest among mobile operator), Blackout days extended to voice calls along with SMS (Idea and Airtel are doing this), no bundled SMS on SMS packs.

Now BSNL, which is India’s largest broadband service provider has revised its all broadband combo plans. With the growth of mobile, BSNL and other players’ landline services take a negative growth, and this trend is seen across the globe.

With BSNL’s new revision all broadband combo plans which were offering broadband services along with some free calls to any network (at different pulse, may be), are now offering free calls to BSNL network only. To make calls to other networks you will be charged seperately.

Already BSNL’s broadband services are getting competition from local players like Beam in Hyderabad, Alliance, Meghbela, Wishnet at Kolkata. Interestingly best broadband tariff are available with MTNL, BSNL’s sister serving in Delhi and Mumbai. I think it’s best for BSNL to delink landline and ADSL broadband and provide FTTH at an affordable price.

Check out the new revision of BSNL’s combo broadband postpaid plans:

Their phone lines are in tatters, my phone stays out of order for half of the month and then I have to register complaints every day for the next half month, only then they fix it just temporarily. And look at their guts to so shamelessly end the free calls completely on other networks! Whatever losses they will make up from this, they will blow it away on rural schemes while urban users suffer! They sent no email or text informing customers about this change, and when I saw my inflated bill, I had to call up the area accounts… Read more »

Same feelings here. I was a happy customer for two long years and was using 850c plan with 350 free calls which i never exceeded during the last year. But when I saw the bill of Jan 2013 I was amused to see the rise in the amount. BSNL had not even bothered to inform to its customers via sms or call. This info is not available on the BSNL site also. I’ve decided to change the operator now. RIP BSNL.

I am really fade up by this BSNL!

Today while I check my bill, I have noticed this bloody BSNL charged for all calls on my Jan bill, there was 250 free calls, I was not informed. I am with combo plan for last more than 2 years! Who will pay the bill BSNL? why you guys make us fool like this way?

I think its time to surrender my landline and switch to new one!
