  1. Very good initiative by Telco giant BSNL. This is right time and customers r attracting rapidly towards BSNL broadband segment bcoz it is very convenient and really more faster.Once against my heartiest congratulation ..

  2. Hi,

    I had a 4 Mbps connection. I have never noticed the speed getting more than 1.6 Mbps.

    What does that mean ?

    BSNL cannot even give 4 Mbps to a subscribed customer now claiming they are providing to all. I see it is good for advertising, but no one will ever see a 4 Mbps πŸ™‚ in speed test nor on downloads.

    Have you ever used one ?

    Else take one and try out πŸ™‚

    • If your plan is 4 MBPS then u will get approx 3.5 MBPS. If is not happening do complain on 198. They will rectify your profile

    • what is your landline number…. if your are from karnataka… pls msg your landline number to 9449997279

  3. Sir it has a FUP on that up 5 GB TO 30 or So called GB in high speed and then after speed reduced to 1Mbps, please go the chart, and wven now no such provision has been done as I am using the same for the last couple of days, minimum speed 1Mbps ( 128kbps).. and all those plans are expensive when compared to other local players.

  4. sir
    Development of Services in Bsnl
    starts implementation only after other networks .
    The first to introduce the plans
    can only stand in profitability to the Bsnl and the customers.

  5. Till Now The Speed Remains the same 2Mbps, it is 1st May 2017, where is that 4Mbps Speed? which you all did declared.
