Seems the Reliance Jio effect is catching up the broadband service providers too. With cheaper wireless 4G offers from Jio, the normal wired broadband service providers are looking into more ways to capture and retain the customers.
India’s biggest and government owned telecom service provider Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has come up with an introductory unlimited broadband plan for new customers. The plan offers customers true unlimited broadband data usage at 1Mbps download speed.
The Experience Unlimited BB 249 broadband plan from BSNL offers new customers with unlimited broadband data usage with zero FUP limit on data. You will get 2Mbps speed for the first 1GB data usage and then unlimited download at flat 1Mbps connection speed.
But there is a catch, the Experience Unlimited BB 249 broadband plan is only for new customers and for a period of 6 months. After that, you will get migrated to a new unlimited broadband plan ‘BBG Combo ULD 499’. This broadband plan comes with the first 2GB data usage at 2Mbps download speed and thereafter at unlimited data usage at 1Mbps speed.
