BSNL Rs 1,999 Broadband Plan Launched: Complete Details
Diving into the newly launched plan from BSNL, it provides a user 100 Mbps speeds up to 33GB data every day. After the daily FUP, speeds will be reduced to 4 Mbps which is reasonable compared to the 1 Mbps after FUP speeds from JioFiber. Although BSNL is marketing the plan as an unlimited data plan, there's a daily data cap of 33GB, similar to other Bharat Fiber broadband plans. For the unaware, BSNL revised its Bharat Fiber broadband plans earlier this year and converted them to daily data plans.
Besides the data, the Rs 1,999 Bharat Fiber plan also allows users to make voice calls to any network in the country through the company's landline service. That being said, it's a decent plan from BSNL, but the speeds are on the lower side. At least, the government-owned PSU should've provided 250 Mbps speeds. Nevertheless, the maximum speeds offered by BSNL is 100 Mbps even with the premium Rs 16,999 Bharat Fiber plan.
The Rs 1,999 broadband plan sits between the Rs 1,277 and Rs 2,499 broadband plans from the company.
