Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) offers up to four months of free broadband service to its Bharat Fiber and Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) customers. Offer also applies to BSNL landline and broadband over Wi-Fi (BBoWiFi) subscribers on a pan-Indian basis. The public telecom operator has separately regularized its Bharat Fiber plans to offer the same rates in all its circles, with the exception of the Andaman and Nicobar circle. Bharat Fiber offers fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband service from Rs. 449.
As initially reported by TelecomTalk, BSNL offers four months of free broadband service to its Bharat Fiber, DSL, landline and BBoWiFi customers by paying for 36 months of rental at a time. This brings a total of 40 months of service at a charge of 36 months.
BSNL also offers three months of free service to its broadband customers by paying rent in advance for 24 months. In addition, subscribers with a 12-month advance rental will receive free service for an additional month.
Customers can take advantage of the offer by calling the toll free number 1800003451500 or by visiting the nearest customer service center as listed on the BSNL website.
It is important to note that BSNL originally offered offering free broadband service in its Maharashtra circle in February last year, although it now appears to be available on a pan-Indian basis.
Gadgets 360 has contacted BSNL to clarify the offer and will update this article when the company responds.
Along with the free service offer, BSNL regularized Bharat Fiber broadband plans to offer the same rental offers across the country, with the exception of Andaman and Nicobar circle. KeralaTelecom reports that the change applies to all Bharat fiber plans which start from Rs. 449 and go up to Rs. 1,499. The operator has also reportedly ditched the existing Disney + Hotstar Premium plan.
