Bsnl broadband is always best comparing to other operator. Bsnl has more and more combo, unlimited, speedy plans as your need. Bsnl department’s door step service is very nice comparing to other operator. If u r a government employee in any deparment (state or central) , Bsnl gives 20% discount in you total bill for broadband subscribers. It is very nice opertunity to govt. Staff. And also from rs.500 plan there is no rental for LL Telephone. But free calls are available. Please visit for bsnl broadband tariff.
