BSNL has been at the forefront to challenge Reliance Jio and other operators in both mobile wireless and wired broadband segment. While the state-owned telecom operator has introduced a number of new plans and revised existing ones to stay competitive, it has now announced another change to its FTTH plans. The company launched a new high-speed broadband plan priced at Rs 2,499 recently and it offered a daily data limit of 40GB. Now, it has converted its exiting broadband plans to offer daily data limits as well.

BSNL’s FTTH plans, priced at Rs 777, Rs 1,277, Rs 3,999, Rs 5,999, Rs 9,999 and Rs 16,999, have all been revised to offer daily data benefit. The company is now offering up to 170GB of data per day with speeds of up to 100Mbps. The change, according to Telecom Talk, is effective immediately on a pan-India basis. Even if you are an existing user of BSNL‘s FTTH plan then your plan will be converted to reflect new daily data benefits. This seems to be inline with the revision announced last year, where all non-FTTH plans were converted to offer daily data benefit.

As part of this revision, BSNL has also renamed all of its plans. The plans which were called as Fibro Combo Unlimited are being dubbed as data plan. The BSNL Fibro Combo ULD 777 plan will now be called as ’18GB Plan’ since it offers 18GB daily data benefit with speeds up to 50Mbps and 2Mbps beyond the FUP limit. The Fibro Combo ULD 1277 is now called as ’25GB Plan’ and it offers 25GB data per day with speeds up to 100Mbps and after FUP limit, the speed drops to 2Mbps.
