In order to make prepaid broadband more popular and affordable, leading state-run telecommunication operator BSNL has revised its prepaid broadband tariffs.
Now BSNL also provides rental option of ADSL modems and online recharge for prepaid broadband users for more convenience.
BSNL has also decided that to promote prepaid broadband, one free prepaid broadband account (zero installation charge and 100MB free usage with 90 day validity) will be provided to all the postpaid broadband customers in 5 SSAs (Hyderabad, Chandigarh, Ahmedabad, Trivendrum & Kolkata TD). This scheme will be available for 90 days w.e.f 1st August, 2011.
Revised prepaid broadband plans from BSNL (applicable w.e.f 01.08.2011) are given below:
Details of revision of prepaid broadband plans:
At the end of day, BSNL can not make a replacement of postpaid broadband with these prepaid plans which are ridiculously costly. 256Kbps unlimited costs Rs 499 on postpaid, on prepaid it’s Rs 1000; 512kbps unlimited plan costs Rs 750 on postpaid, on prepaid it is Rs 1400. I simply do not have idea that whom they are targeting with these plans. Is it rationalization of plans?
