BSNL Broadband Services: Plans, Tarrif, Usage and Customer Care

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited or BSNL as it is known, is India’s Largest Government Owned Telecom Service Provider and operates throughout the countries barring the telecom circles of Mumbai and Delhi which are run by the State Owned MNTL. The earlier avatar of BSNL was DOT which was made into a corporation in 2000. The Indian telecom Industry opened up in 1994 with the advent of Private Mobile Operators and subsequently with Fixed Line Operators which effectively ended the monopoly of BSNL. With internet connections having metamorphosed into broadband, BSNL like its private peers had to evolve and provide its broadband services via BSNL Broadband.

BSNL provides broadband connection to not only metro and lucrative cities and it also provides connections to those areas which are not serviced or poorly serviced by private operators. Most of these would be Tier III cities and rural areas. Since BSNL is a legacy operator and provides services throughout the country, BSNL Broadband has a subscriber base of nearly 120 million subscribers.

BSNL Broadband provides both prepaid and postpaid services and we can examine these below.
