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.
