Government owned Telecom company BSNL has announced that they would be rolling out a promotional unlimited wireline broadband plan at Rs 249, which effectively translates to less than Rs 1 per GB download cost for subscribers. The calculation concludes if the subscribers use up to 300GB data in a month.
Today marks the launch of Reliance Jio 4G services under Welcome Offer as the new JIO subscribers today can enjoy Unlimited data, voice and other benefits such as access to Jio Premium apps up until 31st December 2016. Apart from that company also unveiled their plans to roll out Gigafiber Broadband, i.e. FTTH (Fiber to the Home) services in top 100 cities in the country soon. It would be offering 1Gbps high-speed data download. It would be a true enterprise as well as a home solution for faster internet connection.
In the wake of such announcement by Reliance Jio, BSNL has also announced that it is going to launch a very cost-effective and truly affordable Broadband plan from September 9, 2016, as said by PSU in a statement. If the subscribers use plan continuously, they can download up to 300 GB data.
Currently, in the industry, there is no truly unlimited broadband solution, as most of the broadband providers have implemented FUP, where after certain data cap subscribers get slow speed, where even the browsing of the website can’t be done. It’s like living in a dial-up era once your FUP is reached.
But with Reliance Jio announcing it’s 4G services and Gigafiber broadband for home and enterprise. The internet data usage in the country is about to change for good. As Data is indeed an oxygen of digital life, as stated by Mr Mukesh Ambani, Chairman & Managing Director of Reliance Industries Limited.
Anupam Shrivastava, Chairman & Managing Director of BSNL in an issued statement said that the new plan by their company is all said to enhance the customer experience as the company focuses on attracting news users for their new promotional unlimited wireline broadband plan. Do make a note that the speed in this plan would be offered at 2 Mbps, unlike Reliance Jio’s 1 Gbps speed in their FTTH service.
