Exclusive: BSNL to upgrade all Broadband plans to minimum 2Mbps pre FUP speed Pan India from October

By September 4th, 2015 AT 6:20 PM

In an attempt to defend its rapidly shrinking turf in the wired broadband segment due to cut throat competition with private National and Local ISPs, State owned BSNL has today announced that it will be upgrading all existing Broadband plans for both old and new customers to minimum speed of 2Mbps pre FUP.


After the FUP quota of allotted free data is exhausted the speed will revert back to 512 Kbps like before. All upgraded plans will come into effect from 1st October 2015.

Though this is a welcomed move from BSNL it would have made the deal sweeter had the operator made the Post FUP speed a minimum of 2 Mbps. Especially for plans of flat 512 Kbps the new upgraded speed of 2Mbps for just 1GB actually seems like merely a formality for maintaining uniformity in the 2Mbps pre FUP speed initiative.

The details of the upgraded plans on a pan India basis is as follows:

Plan Name Existing Bandwidth Revised Bandwidth
BBG UL 545 512 Kbps Flat upto   2   Mbps   till   1   GB,   512   Kbps beyond
BBG Combo UL 675 512 Kbps Flat upto   2   Mbps   till   1   GB,   512   Kbpsbeyond
BBG Rural Combo UL 650 512 Kbps Flat upto   2   Mbps   till   1   GB,   512   Kbpsbeyond
BB Home UL 645 CS35 512 Kbps Flat upto   2   Mbps   till   1   GB,   512   Kbpsbeyond
BB   Home   Combo   UL   775CS36 512 Kbps Flat upto   2   Mbps   till   1   GB,   512   Kbpsbeyond
BBG Combo UL 5500 CS73 512 Kbps Flat upto   2   Mbps   till   1   GB,   512   Kbpsbeyond
BBG Combo ULD 845 1 Mbps till 6 GB, 512 Kbpsbeyond Upto   2   Mbps   till   6   GB,   512   Kbpsbeyond
BB  Home  Combo  ULD  899CS37 1 Mbps till 6 GB, 512 Kbpsbeyond Upto   2   Mbps   till   6   GB,   512   Kbpsbeyond

The following upgraded plans are applicable only in Tirupati, Kurnool, Anantpur, Warangal & Nellore service areas of AP circle

Plan Name Existing Bandwidth Revised Bandwidth

Plan Name Existing Bandwidth Revised Bandwidth

BBG Combo ULD 845 upto 1 Mbps till 12 GB, 512Kbps beyond upto  2  Mbps  till  12  GB,  512  Kbpsbeyond

Only time will tell whether this new tactic resorted to by BSNL will work in its favour to arrest the growing rate of disconnections and surrenders and helping them add new subscribers.
