BSNL Limited & Unlimited broadband data plans in India


The following article gives you detailed information on limited and unlimited broadband plans which are served by reliable telecom service provider Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) in India.

Customers should first estimate their data usage and then only select a plan because once the subscription is processed for a specific plan, then it cannot be changed in the middle of month. To change the plan, customer needs to visit the customer care center and file an application for changing the plan. It is recommended that you subscribe for a plan which has higher download limit plan as the connectivity varies between 256 Kbps to whopping 24 Mbps.

Limited broadband plans


The limited usage BSNL broadband plans are divided into four categories and they are as follows:

i) High upload speed plan
ii) High speed plans
iii) Limited broadband combo plans
iv) Limited broadband standalone plans

The VHDSL or VDSL technology is used for the High upload speed plan and High speed plans. Here, DSL stands for Digital Subscriber Line and VH stands for Very High bit rate. This type of connection has greater data access speed than Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL). This VHDSL technology facilitates the application services like Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and transmission of high-definition television.

In the first plan, monthly charges are Rs. 3699 plus service tax and there will be 100 GB of free data access at download speed of 10 Mbps and upload speed of 4 Mbps. Beyond 100 GB of data, charges will be incurred at the rate of Rs. 0.15 per MB. In this type of connection, one can make 500 free calls within the BSNL network.

In the second plan, there are two variants. One variant is for Rs. 4999 and the other for Rs. 6999. In the case of first variant, the download speed is 16 Mbps and the data access limit is 125 GB whereas in the second variant, the download speed is 24 Mbps and the data access limit is 250 MB. In High speed plans, the extraneous data access will be charged at Rs. 0.15 per MB. In this way, the user has to be careful as the broadband speed does not decrease beyond free usage. Here, one can make 1000 free calls within the BSNL network.

The following images show the three VDSL plans and their charges in details.

In the third plan also, there are two variants. One is for Rs. 600 and the other for Rs. 2799. In the first variant, the download speed is 2 Mbps and the free data usage is 2.5 GB. For data usage between 2.5 GB and 5 GB, the charges will be incurred at the rate of Rs. 0.30 per MB and for data usage beyond 5 GB, the rate will be reduced to Rs. 0.15 per MB. In the second variant, there will be a download speed of 8 Mbps along with 60 GB of free data usage. Beyond the free usage, charges will be incurred at the rate of Rs. 0.15 per MB. Using the first variant, one can make 250 free calls within the BSNL network whereas using the second variant, one can make 500 free calls within the network.

As the rates of all the above three plans are way too high, need was felt to design the Limited broadband standalone plans which are much economical. The monthly rental of this plan is Rs. 250 only. There are no free calls. The broadband speed is 2 Mbps and 1 GB of free data access is available. Between 1 GB and 5GB of data access, charges will be Rs. 0.30 per MB. Beyond 5 GB, charges will be incurred at the rate of Rs. 0.15 per MB. This plan is economical only if the user's download limit stays below 3 GB. Else, this plan can empty your pockets because the download speed is continuously maintained at 2 Mbps throughout the month.
