In an effort to consolidate its first position, the state-run telecom company BSNL has launched a few daily data benefit plans in its broadband segment. The idea of daily data benefit in broadband plans is truly an innovative one.
Though there seems to be a stiff competition in the broadband niche, the Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited is still the market leader. With the launch of Reliance Jio GigaFiber, there has been a stupendous competition among the private entities.
ACT Fibernet and Airtel are adding many customized plans to satisfy consumer needs. The state-owned service provider BSNL is of no exception.
BSNL Broadband Plan ₹99 with 1.5GB Daily Data:
Recently, the BSNL announced the launch of daily data benefit plans at an unbelievable price of ₹99 per month. Though these plans are meant on a promotional basis (for a period of 90 days) but are valid all through the length and breadth of the country except Andaman & Nicobar telecom circle.
The main USP of these daily data broadband plans is its 20-Mbps speed. Post the FUP limit, the broadband speed will come down to 1Mbps. Moreover, one can enjoy 24-hr unlimited calling (local + STD) facility to any network on these plans. On top of it, you don’t need to pay any security deposit for the landline.

Only For New Customers:
There are a few shortcomings with respect to the latest BSNL broadband plans. The plan is only suitable for new broadband users and the existing subscribers can’t migrate. However, if you are a BSNL landline subscriber then you can migrate to the BBG Combo ULD 300GB plan and BBG Combo ULD 600GB plan.
Moreover, there will be a security deposit of ₹500 and the broadband plan is valid for a period of 90 days from the date of its inception.
After a period of 180 days, the subscribers will be migrated to the regular broadband plans. If you are not interested in continuing the plan then you can migrate to any other existing broadband plan.
As disclosed earlier, the BSNL has also announced three other plans with the same daily data benefit concept. They do have a monthly rental of ₹199, ₹299 and ₹399 with 5GB, 10GB and 20GB per day data benefit. All these plans get free email ID with 1GB of storage space.
BSNL Broadband Plans with Daily Data Benefit & 20 Mbps Speed:

What’s Your Opinion?
All the said plans do offer a 20-Mbps broadband speed and after the FUP limit, the speed will come down to 1 Mbps speed. Interestingly, the data speed will be restored back to 20Mbps at 12 am midnight.
Undoubtedly, the entry-level BSNL broadband plan is a good move to attract new customers. Till now, the telecom industry has witnessed a tariff war in the mobile prepaid and postpaid segment.
The latest decision by BSNL could trigger tariff war in the broadband segment too. When the Indian rupee is collapsing to a new lifetime low and the weaker rupee is resulting in the rise in petrol prices, the BSNL has got some good news to its users.
