Can BSNL Fiber To The Home Services ( FTTH ) Live Up To Subscribers Expectations

BSNL, the state-run telecom network is well-known for their innovations in the telecom sector. Ever since the first news regarding the Jio’s GigaFiber came out, every other company was trying to match that by implementing the FTTH technology. In the same process, Bharti Airtel came out with their V-Fiber technology; that is said to offer speeds ranging from 100Mbps to 1Gbps. On the other hand, BSNL got out with their FTTH (Fiber to The Home) service and already rolled out the services in some cities of India.


What exactly is BSNL FTTH? Instead of using the optical fiber cables, in FTTH, operators will be using fiber cabling under the ground, and they will be connected directly to your home. This service from BSNL will be offering speeds ranging from 256 Kbps to 100 Mbps, but the speeds will be lot more reliable.

That being said, BSNL already rolled out Fiber To The Home Services in several areas of the country. You can see the official list of the areas by clicking here. Notably, the service is not as cheap as we have expected. Yes, we are speaking about the pricing of these plans. BSNL officially listed some of the plans under this new FTTH service for available areas.

As of now, the company has four plans under this scheme. The minimum plan starts at Rs. 3999 and offers speeds up to 10Mbps till 200GB and later on will be converted to 1Mbps. The other plans are Rs. 5999, Rs. 9999, and Rs. 16999 with speeds up to 20Mbps, 50Mbps, and 100Mbps.

It is worth noticing that these plans are unlimited plans and BSNL, for now, does not have any limited plans with lower data FUP. Hopefully, they launch them in the near future with small pricing. Also, users can pay to the operator annually, or for two years, or for three years as well, which is a good thing.

At last, this is a good thing rolling out from the Government based company itself. Are you using the BSNL FTTH service? If yes, please let us know the speeds you are experiencing in the comments section below.

As usuall BSNL has come out with non desirable plans. I use Fusionnet unlimited 20Mbps for 1450/month, in Greater Noida. No caps, no slowdown. Speeds are cosistent and fast. Nobody is going to buy such costly plans. I will use slow internet but will never pay so much for 200Gb plan for a landline broadband.

I am hundred percent sure, You do not have BSNL FTTH . It is extraordinary but just because, it is costlier, I left this facility. Hope, BSNL will provide it with cheaper cost.

First of all wrong information . I am from Kerala, here BSNL FTTH started since August 2016 with lowest rate of 1045/month for 50GB with speed 20mbps. But, it is not available any part within city limits of the state capital. till now they say not feasible. no fiber through your area… may be next month… same answer every month.

Looks like BSNL dont have any intention of laying fiber optics throughout. so this will be a flop.

BSNL’s exclusive FTTH plans are way too expensive, however, a prospective customer might want to subscribe to those FTTH plans that are on par with DSL plans in terms of speed, data caps and associated terms and conditions. The DSL linked FTTH plans are attractive to exisitng BSNL customers specially those who are afflicted with outages on DSL. It may not be attractive to customers who are served by Airtel, ACT and other fibre internet service providers since the double digit Mbps plans are priced above two thousand rupees a month. I have expereinced FTTH services in Chennai and Bengaluru,… Read more »

Here in the Hyderabad, they have very similar to Beam act and one of the most popular is 650 Rs which gives 10 Mbps for 50 gb of FUP. Later its 1mbps and also you get free calling.

But yes there are serious problems in addressing the outages. Management is trying to address it but again old habits doesn’t go so easily.

Looks like TT didn’t do their research very well. Kerala and TamilNadu have Fibro ULD 1045 CS48 (20 Mbps till 50 GB, upto 1 Mbps beyond) and Fibro ULD 1395 CS49 (20 Mbps till 75 GB, upto 1 Mbps beyond). Yes they are FUP plans and FTTH is awesome. My friends in TN who use FTTH have excellent latency in connections. Link to Tariff page : FYI I am a gamer and for a gamer, latency is everything FUP doesnt matter when you get low latency on servers. 1045 and 1395 are worth it for the quality it provides.… Read more »
