Soon after the introduction of Reliance Jio, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has unveiled a new promotional broadband plan called Experience Unlimited Broadband 249 (BB249) postpaid. The motive behind the new plan is to attracting new customers to BSNL’s broadband services.
As per the plan, users will get 2Mbps speed for the first 1GB of data, and thereafter get 1Mbps speed for the rest of the month. This means that if subscribers use about 300GB of data in a month, they are effectively paying less than Rs. 1 per GB of high-speed data.
The plan has been introduced as an introductory offer, and will be available from Friday, September 9. It will last for six months only, after which BSNL will migrate customers to the BBG Combo ULD 499 plan, with a cost of Rs. 499 per month. The BB249 plan also offers unlimited free calls between 9pm to 7am on all Sundays to any network in India. Outside of the free call bracket, BSNL will charge Re. 1 per 3 minutes for all BSNL network outgoing calls, and Rs. 1.2 per 3 minutes for all other network outgoing calls. The BB249 plan is available new customers only, both ADSL and FTTH. There will be no Installation charges during the promotional period.
