Latest information reveals that BSNL has come up with a Free Pre-FUP offer with a reasonably good download speed. This is a promotional offer ( Happy Browsing Offer) which will last for 3 consecutive months.
Fair Usage Policy (FUP) as implemented by the Internet Service Providers (ISPs) is a policy which follows various tariff plans. Such plans are made to ensure that every customer pays a fair value without keeping the amount of data used per month into account.
FUP defined by BSNL provides its users with various such tariff plans with varying rates in proportion to the varying download limits. On reaching a certain limit of data usage, the speed is reduced.
It is believed that such plans are being marketed by the company in order to retain their customers. After the introduction of Reliance Jio sim cards in the market, the network has seemingly suffered sufficient loss.
However, this offer is going to be available to its pan India customers with an unlimited broadband connection.
According to the usual plans, BSNL charges Rs.100 for 5GB data after the data usage has crossed the FUP monthly usage limit, in order to retain its high speed. However, with this new offer, the users will continue receiving data at the same speed even after the limit has crossed.
This offer is already into effect from 1st July 2017. The eligibility for this scheme can checked at http://188.8.131.52:9090. This BSNL Broadband promotional offer also provides with zero monthly charges for three consecutive months, on availing it.
