BSNL is going to launch a very cost-effective and affordable promotional unlimited Broadband plan ‘Experience Unlimited BB 249’ from September 9, 2016.
Attempting to take Reliance Jio’s 4G offer of Rs 50 per GB head-on, BSNL is looking to hook new customers to its wireline broadband offering.
State-run BSNL today said it will soon launch a promotional unlimited wireline broadband plan that effectively translates into less than Re 1 per GB download cost for subscribers if they use up to 300GB data in a month.
Under this plan, customers can download unlimited Broadband data without bothering about any data limit in GB. BSNL shall offer 2 Mbps speed under this plan.
If customers use the plan continuously in a month, they can download upto 300 GB data by paying Rs 249. Thus, the per GB of data download cost comes out as less than Re 1. After six months, customer will be migrated to one of the regular broadband plan based on the choice of the customer.
This shows that Jio’s announcement is already impacting the tariff of other operators.
BSNL’s chairman and managing director Anupam Shrivastava said that BSNL is the only operator who is offering lowest per GB data download cost plan under wireline broadband services.
