Website loading slow or video getting buffered? If you are a BSNL broadband customer, that won’t be the case from this October. With wired broadband subscription shrinking as never before and cutthroat competition from private operators, State-run telecom service provider Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) plans to upgrade its entire landline broadband plans to offer four times the speed at no additional cost.

BSNL to upgrade minimum broadband speed by Four times from 512 Kbps to 2 Mbps

BSNL will be upgrading all existing wired broadband plans to a minimum speed of 2 Mbps pre-FUP from the current minimum speed of 512 Kbps or 1 Mpbs at no additional cost for customers. The speed upgradation will benefit all the existing and new BSNL broadband customers. So if you have broadband plan, say BBG UL 545 that offers 512 Kbps flat speed, it will be now upgraded to 2 Mbps speed till the FUP (in this case 2 Mbps till 1 GB and then reverted back to 512 Kbps for extra usage). It to be noted that after the allotted free data usage or FUP quota is over the broadband speed will be reverted back to 512 Kbps like before. Here is the revised list of some of the popular BSNL broadband plans –
