National telecom backbone, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has announced the revision of existing unlimited broadband plans. BSNL has reduced prices for its unlimited plans with effect from 10 July 2017. In order to be in competition with its rival Reliance Jio, this step has been taken by the state-owned company BSNL.
Now the unlimited 2 Mbps broadband plan which was at Rs. 1,199 and is now available at the price of Rs. 599 per month. The revised tariff also includes Rs. 1,199 scheme in which the company will offer free calling 24 hours a day. Also for the unlimited Internet at 2 Mbps, the revised 1,199 plan will now give a speed of 4 Mbps up to 50GB. And after the limit is reached, the speed will be reduced to 2 Mbps.
Not only this, BSNL has also extended the FUP (fair usage policy) limit on its existing and most popular unlimited broadband plan at Rs. 249. In this, the customers can enjoy 2 Mbps speed until 5GB of data has used, after which the speed comes down to 1 Mbps. This offer is for new as well as existing customers. It is no wonder that after the coming of Reliance Jio in the market, other telecom companies find hard to sleep.
The 599 plan has been introduced under the code BBGCOMBO UL 599. Now that the competition matrix has changed, there is always a race to lure customers within the telecom companies. In the light of that, BSNL has launched many other plans like the latest Rs. 675 plan which offers 10GB of data at 4 Mbps speed as opposed to the earlier 5GB. Moreover, the new Rs. 999 plan will offer 30GB which earlier was 20GB of data with an Internet speed of 4 Mbps across India.
