BSNL Offers 4Mbps Minimum Download Speed Starting May 1
The state-run telecom company Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) redefined the broadband speed across the country. Starting May 1 onwards, the telecom service provider doubled the speed of broadband to 4 Mbps.
4 Mbps Minimum Speed - A Game Changer:
As per the reports, this upgrade is applicable to all the broadband plans offered by BSNL. It is to be noted that this speed upgrade will not attract any additional cost from the subscribers. Moreover, the FUP (Fair Usage Policy) quota is also enhanced up to 250%. For example, the 20GB FUP limit is increased up to the 70GB edge.
Last time, BSNL doubled the broadband speed to 2 Mbps in 2015. This new move by BSNL will definitely be a game changer in the broadband market. For example, the most popular BB249 plan used to offer 1GB data at 2Mbps speed. But with the recent upgrade, BB249 will now offer 1GB of data at 4Mbps and later on unlimited data at 1Mbps. Minimum 4Mbps download speed is definitely a game changer.
BSNL Will Invest Rs 4300 Cr for Infrastructure Development
Meanwhile, the state-run telecom company is all set to invest ₹4300 crore during the financial year 2018, for upgrading its infrastructure facilities including the installation of 75,000 Wi-Fi hotspots across the nation.
A special task has been approved to set up 3000 more telecom towers in Maoist-hit states of Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, and Odisha. The decision has been taken to improve satellite bandwidth and communication in the remote areas and deep inside the Maoist hot-beds. For the first time, the state-run telecom service provider has set up 1800 telecom towers based on solar power.
