    The state-run telecom company BSNL has got some good news to its loyal customers. Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) revised its Bharat Fiber (FTTH) plans portfolio by announcing an annual payment scheme.

    As per the latest press release, the newly introduced FTTH plans will get the double speed and additional benefits. Currently, these revised Bharat Fiber plans are announced in Kerala and Chennai Telecom circles. However, these plans will be released across India.

    Revised Bharat Fiber Plans:

    BSNL has termed these 4 plans as Fiber Basic Plus ₹599, Fiber Value ₹799, Fiber Premium ₹999 and Fiber Ultra ₹1499. Though these terms look old, the benefits are revised to give stiff competition to the private fiber network operators.

    All of the above plans will have an annual payment scheme. If the subscriber makes the payment in advance, he will be awarded extra service. For example, the customer paying for 5.5 months will get 6 months of service. If the customer pays for 10.5 months, then he will be enjoying 12 months service.

    Old Plans with Double Speed:

    The 499 plan that used to provide 100 GB data at 20Mbps speed will now deliver at 50Mbps speed.

    The ₹799 broadband plan will now cater 100Mbps speed instead of 50Mbps with a FUP limit of 300GB. Post the usage of 300GB, the broadband speed will be reduced to 5Mbps. Previously, it was a mere 2Mbps speed. Moreover, it also packs Disney+ Hotstar Premium membership on a complimentary basis.

    The other popular ₹849 broadband plan will also get double the speed (100Mbps) till one consumes 600GB. Post the 600GB limit, the speed will be reduced to 10 Mbps. Earlier it was just 2Mbps. On a similar note, the broadband plans of ₹949 and ₹1999 are also revised with double the speed.

    BSNL’s OTT Add-on Pack:

    Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited has also added Add-on packs with OTT services to its broadband customers all over India. At a fixed monthly charge of ₹129, one can enjoy VOOT Select, SonyLIV Special, Zee5 Premium – All-access pack, YuppTV Live (NCF Channels), YuppTV FDFS (First Day First Show), and YuppTV Movies.

    This promotional offer is valid for the first 3 months. However, if you like to continue the pack then it would be charged ₹199 per month. That means one needs to pay an extra ₹70 per month from the 4th month onward.
