BSNL Unveils Unlimited Broadband Plan, Offers 300GB Internet for ₹249
State-run telecom operator BSNL has unveiled a new promotional broadband internet plan called Experience Unlimited BB 249. Attempting to counter Reliance Jio affordable internet plans, BSNL with its limited speed has brought up unlimited internet at 2Mbps speed. Post the FUP limit of 1GB; one can enjoy unlimited data at 1Mbps.
1GB Internet less than ₹ 1:
This is an awesome plan to attract rural and urban customers across the country. With this Unlimited BB 249 plan, the user can enjoy unlimited internet downloads at less than ₹ 1 per GB. As per BSNL CMD Mr. Anupam Shrivastava, BSNL is the only telecom operator to offer 1GB of internet at less than ₹ 1 per day if the subscriber downloads starts download even 1GB per day.
As this Experience Unlimited BB 249 plan is a promotional campaign, it would be applicable only to the new customers. After 6 months, the subscribers will be put on BBG Combo ULD 499 plan. And can even migrate to the regular plans based on his or her choice. Apart from the unlimited internet, this plan also offers unlimited free night calls between 9pm to 7am and on all Sundays to any telecom network across India.
This introductory offer will go live from September 9th to October 31st, 2016 and doesn’t attract installation charges. If you are making calls outside free call bracket, then you will be charged ₹ 1 per 3 minutes for all BSNL network and ₹ 1.20 per 3 minutes for all other networks.
Is It Really Worth?
If one looks at the speed, BSNL is no way comparable with that of private telecom operators. 300GB internet at just 1Mbps is really a painful exercise. Though it is not an apple to apple comparison, BSNL’s new plan would definitely highlight the concept of affordability. With its PAN India network, BSNL could bridge the gap between rural and urban areas.
