“The BSNL Rs 2,499 broadband plan comes with 25 percent cashback on annual and half-yearly subscriptions”
BSNL has announced its Rs 2,499 broadband plan that offers 40GB of daily data at a speed of 100Mbps. Along with the ample daily data, it also brings unlimited voice calling facility. Users will also get a free email ID access with a 1GB mailbox space. The new plan has been launched under the state-owned operator’s Bharat Fiber programme that was launched a days ago. It should be noted that the Bharat Fiber broadband plan is not available in all circles. Also, once a user exceeds the day’s FUP, the speed will be lowered to 2Mbps.
The new broadband plan by the government-owned PSU also offers a 25 percent cashback on a six month or an annual recharge. BSNL does not offer any installation charges on the fibre-to-the-home plans. Users can select and start with the new plan by just paying the monthly amount itself. However, in some circles, the telco might ask for installation charges as the rebate is a circle-specific offer.
BSNL is among the largest wired broadband providers in the country and has over 10 million users. It is an offering to take over the Jio GigaFiber service, which claims to offer 35GB data per day at just Rs. 1.1 per GB. Airtel and ACT Fibernet also have strong presence in the wired broadband segment.
