Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) on Thursday officially launched its new Bharat Fiber plans with all BSNL circle portals except Andaman and Nicobar reflecting the new plans. As reported by TelecomTalk late last week, BSNL has introduced four new Bharat Fiber plans dubbed as Fibre Basic, Fibre Value, Fibre Premium and Fibre Ultra on a promotional basis for a period of 90 days. The BSNL portals highlight that the four new plans are all valid till December 29, 2020. It has to be noted that the operator in the past has rolled out several plans including “100GB CUL” plan on a promotional basis but has consistently extended the promotional period.

Multiple BSNL SSAs Offers New BSNL Bharat Fibre Plans
BSNL in its internal release last week highlighted that the new plans “are offered in only those cities where challenges from the competitors exist.” As of press time on Thursday, BSNL has not provided the official list of cities where the new plans are currently offered to users. However, BSNL users across social media have shared the list of Secondary Switching Area (SSA) where the new plans are offered and are reflected through BSNL selfcare portal. It has to be noted that one BSNL SSA covers multiple villages and cities under its belt.
According to BSNL users, the new plans are said to be currently live in multiple BSNL SSAs including Dhanbad SSA, Vellore SSA, Hazaribagh SSA, Jamshedpur SSA and Thiruvananthapuram SSA.
The BSNL portal currently highlights that the new plans are “applicable for few Districts of selected Circle.” It is expected that more BSNL SSAs will roll out the new Bharat Fibre plans in the next few weeks.
