The year 2020 could shape up to be a great one for broadband subscribers in India. The arrival of Jio Fiber with its pan-India broadband service last year has forced the competition to keep prices low. While broadband prices are already low in Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities, that cannot be said of smaller towns in the country. In such towns, BSNL usually is the only option for many users. Until recently, BSNL’s FTTH plans weren’t the most affordable option, and users had to settle for its slower (but much cheaper) ADSL plans. That is not the case any longer with BSNL now offering decent FTTH plans that start at just INR 430 in select circles. BSNL has been launching new plans as well for a while to attract new customers. In the latest such instance, the state-owned company has introduced a new plan worth INR 1,999 that is currently only available for the Telangana and Chennai telecom circles. Let’s check out this new plan in detail
BSNL Rs 1,999 Bharat Fiber Broadband Plan details
According to details posted by BSNL Chennai, this new plan is called 1500GB CUL, and as you might have guessed, it offers a generous 1.5TB of data with promised speeds of up to 200 Mbps. In case you hit the FUP of 1.5TB, the speeds shall be capped to 2 Mbps. At this time, users do not have the option to go for an annual plan. Additionally, subscribers also get unlimited free calling to any network across India if they have a BSNL landline connection.
At this time, there is no clarity whether this plan also offers a free Amazon Prime subscription worth Rs 999. By the looks of it, this new plan is targeted at Jio Fiber’s 2,499 plan that offers faster download speeds (up to 500 Mbps) — but lower FUP (1.25 TB). Jio, however, does offer complimentary subscriptions to a lot of other OTT platforms.
