BSNL has revised its broadband plan to offer more data and faster data speeds as an effort to combat the launch of Reliance Jio’s fiber broadband service next month. The state-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited is revising its broadband plans that now offer increased FUP limit.

The revised broadband plans are in line with company’s plan to increase the FUP limit of its fiber broadband plans by more than four times in all the circles. As part of that strategy, BSNL is revising broadband plans, namely the Fibro Combo ULD 3999, Fibro Combo ULD 5999, Fibro Combo ULD 9999, and Fibro Combo ULD 16999. All of these premium unlimited broadband plans now come with higher FUP along with high-speed data transfer, and free calling feature.

With Fibro Combo ULD 3999, BSNL is now offering FUP limit of 500GB while the speed is capped at 50Mbps. After you complete the FUP limit, the data speed throttles down to 4Mbps. BSNL previously offered FUP limit of 300GB at 20Mbps and speed throttled down to 2Mbps after exhaustion of the data limit. The Fibro Combo ULD 5999 comes bundled with 1000GB FUP data and data speeds of 60Mbps as opposed to 400GB at 30Mbps previously offered by the telco. After FUP, the speed drops to 4Mbps, which is double the 2Mbps speed offered previously by the telco.

The Fibro Combo ULD 9999 offers 2,000GB of pre-FUP data at 80Mbps speed and after FUP, the speed throttles down to 6Mbps. It previously came bundled with 600GB data at 50Mbps and throttled speed of 2Mbps. The Fibro Combo ULD 16999, BSNL offers 3,000GB FUP data at 100Mbps, which is up from 800GB data previously offered with this plan. The post-FUP speed has also been doubled to 8Mbps from 4Mbps previously offered.

The new Fibro Combo ULD 777 and Fibro Combo ULD 1277 offer 500GB and 750GB data at speeds of 50Mbps and 100Mbps respectively. These plans also offer unlimited calls to any network and will be available only to new customers of BSNL till September 9, 2018.
