Really big change coming to India’s biggest wired broadband service provider. Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has announced a drastic upgrade for its unlimited broadband plans. Starting 1st November 2017, BSNL Broadband’s existing unlimited broadband plans to come with an initial download speed of 10Mbps.
Yup, you heard it right, BSNL Broadband want to give a tough fight to the newgen broadband providers eating up its market share. According to reports, BSNL Broadband will now offer 10Mbps base download speed on all unlimited broadband plans having a monthly rental of Rs 675 and above. For BSNL unlimited broadband plans below Rs 675, users will get an initial download speed of 8Mbps.
However, do note that the download speed increase is within the fair usage policy (FUP) limit of your broadband plan. After you hit the data FUP limit of your broadband plan the download speed will decrease to your broadband plans speed limit.
The one plan that’s getting a major boost with the speed increase is the “Experience Unlimited Broadband 249” plan. Just a few weeks ago, BSNL extended the validity of the plan to three more months. In addition, they also increased the data FUP limit to 5GB from earlier 1GB. Now with the broadband speed revision, the same plan will offer 8Mbps download speed till the 5GB FUP limit and beyond that unlimited data usage at 1Mbps speed.
