In a major development, the state-run telecom player BSNL has slightly modified its most popular Bharat Fiber 499 plan. The FTTH base plan is now offer 50Mbps speed.
Earlier, the BSNL 100GB CUL 499 used to offer 20Mbps till 100GB. Beyond 100GB usage, the speed got throttled to 2Mbps.
With the new modification, the same 499 plan will now be offering 50Mbps speed. The 100GB download limit remains the same. Post the 100GB usage, the speed gets reduced to 2Mbps. The subscriber has the unlimited calling facility to any network throughout India.
On a comparative side, there’s a Bharat Fiber Basic Plan 449 that offers up to 30Mbps till 3300GB. Post the usage of 3.3TB data, speed gets reduced to 2Mbps. On the calling side, the subscriber gets unlimited local and STD calls to any network.
Unlike the private FTTH providers, the BSNL Bharat Fiber does not offer any OTT (over-the-top) benefits. On a comparative side, both the entry plans JioFiber 399 Plan and Airtel Xstrem Fiber 499 come as a bundled pack.
Let’s have a quick look over the entry level FTTH plans offered by other telecom and broadband players.
The JioFiber 399 plan is the new entry that created waves in the FTTH market. As per the entry plan, the subscriber gets 3.3TB of data at 30Mbps speed and unlimited voice calling. As it’s a basic plan, Jio has not included any OTT benefit.
If you compare the JioFiber offering to the BSNL, then the private player charges INR 50 less. All the other things remain the same.
Airtel Xstream 499 Plan:
The Airtel’s FTTH basic plan offers 40Mbps speed till 3.3TB. As usual, the subscriber gets unlimited calling. However, the main advantage with Airtel’s Unlimited FTTH plan is OTT benefit.
It offers free subscription to Airtel Xstream, Wynk Music, Shah Academy, Voot Basic, EROS Now, Hungama Play, Shemaroo Me, Ultra etc.
