“The BSNL Rs 777 plan offers speed of up to 50Mbps with 500GB data FUP and 30-day validity”
Back in July, state-led Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) revised its Fiber broadband plans in India and ditched the Rs 777 plan and introduced a new Rs 849 option. Now, the telecom network has yet reintroduced the Rs 777 plan and is offering it in all circles that it services. While the reason for this move hasn’t been officially stated, it could be the effect of the Jio Fiber broadband service that starts at Rs 699. The BSNL plan offers speed of up to 50Mbps with 500GB data FUP and 30-day validity. Post-FUP, the speeds fall down to 2Mbps. TelecomTalk reports that the offer will only be available for a period of six months. On the other hand, Jio Fiber will start at Rs 699 a month for the foreseeable future.
Under the BSNL offer, once the promotional six months end, users will have to switch to Rs 849 plan that offers 600GB data and the same 50Mbps speed. BSNL’s broadband plans go all the way up to Rs 16,999 per month that gives 170GB at 100Mbps speed and 10Mbps post-FUP speed. The plan is available in all circles except Andaman and Nicobar circle, Gujarat, Maharashtra, and MP.
In comparison, Jio’s Rs 699 plan offers 100Mbps speed, 100GB FUP data and post FUP, and the data goes down to 1Mbps. It also includes free calling, TV video calling, zero-latency gaming, home networking, Norton security and access to Jio Cinema and Jio Saavn for three months. While Jio Fiber plan offers more speed, BSNL takes the edge with more monthly FUP.
