BSNL Broadband Rs 849 and Airtel Rs 999 Plan: Rental is Almost Same But Benefits are Not

Bharti Airtel offers a broadband plan which is a little higher priced than BSNL, but the benefits far outweigh the price difference. Check how the two plans differ

Highlights
  • Airtel offers the Entertainment plan with 200 Mbps for Rs 999 per month
  • The data offering by BSNL under Rs 849 is 600GB
  • Airtel also has an option for the users to turn their plan into unlimited one

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) sets itself apart from all the other private telecom operators owing to its unique offerings. Even in the case of prepaid and postpaid plans, the state-led telecom operator has positioned itself uniquely in the market such that the offerings from the state-led telecom operator are vastly different from the ones being offered by the other competitors. The same is also true for the highly competitive broadband market. Now, in this case, it is crucial to note that BSNL actually has the most extensive broadband network across India, and it is actually the biggest broadband provider in the country. Now the telco is also offering FTTH plans to the users as well. But, in these broadband plans, the thing that steps them apart from the rest is the daily data cap, which is similar to the prepaid plans in the market but is unique considering the fact that BSNL is the only one offering plans with a daily data cap. However, there are some plans which come with no daily data cap as well. These include the Rs 949 plan and more. However, today, we are taking a look at some other plan and its competition.

BSNL Rs 849 Broadband Plan Details

Firstly, we should understand what the Rs 849 BSNL Fibre broadband plan offers to the customers. Now, the first thing to note is that the Rs 849 broadband plan by BSNL is one of the most popular plans out there, so much so that it has been given a “popular” tag on the BSNL official website as well. When it comes to benefits, the BSNL Rs 849, or popularly known as Fibro 600GB plan offers 600GB data per month to the subscribers and it does so at the speed of 50 Mbps. The after FUP speed in this plan is 2 Mbps, meaning that after the exhaustion of 600GB, the subscribers will experience the speed of 2 Mbps. In addition to this, the subscribers will also get unlimited calling benefit too. Lastly, being a plan priced above Rs 749 per month, the BSNL broadband subscribers of this plan also get to enjoy Amazon Prime membership for an entire year.

Bharti Airtel Rs 999 Broadband Plan Details

Against the BSNL broadband plan of Rs 849, we have pitted the Airtel broadband plan of Rs 999. The Entertainment broadband plan by Airtel. This broadband plan by Bharti Airtel costs only about Rs 150 more than the BSNL broadband plan, but the benefit which it offers, far outweigh the price that the subscribers pay. As for speed, the Airtel Rs 999 broadband plan subscribers get 200 Mbps, which is four times more than what BSNL offers. As for the data limit, the subscribers enjoy 300GB data per month, with unlimited calling as well. However, the subscribers also get the option of turning their data into unlimited data by paying Rs 299 extra. In terms of additional benefits, the Airtel broadband plan blows BSNL out of the water by giving Amazon Prime subscription for an entire year, Netflix for three months, ZEE5 for a year and Airtel Xstream subscription too.

Comparison

For the subscribers looking for a broadband plan, the BSNL broadband portfolio does have some attractive option, for example, the Rs 777 broadband plan which is actually under offer, and it ships 500GB data per month. There are also various plans which offer ample daily data to the customers. However, when it comes to certain parameters like the additional benefits and speeds, the Airtel broadband plans, do have an edge.
