BSNL Broadband

BSNL is the market leader in broadband services with 60+ percentage share in India. Most of these connections are provided using ADSL2+(Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line Plus) technology on it's existing land-line infrastructure.

ADSL2+ technology provides download speed upto 24Mbit/s and upload speed upto 1.4Mbit/s.

BSNL broadband can be availed in two ways:
  1. If you already have a landline connection, you can get broadband as addon to landline. You need to pay monthly charges for landline plan plus broandband plan.
  2. Combo plan: Provides both broadband and landline in a single plan. Prefer this if your primary requirement is broadband.

How much does it cost initially for a new connection?


You need to buy a ADSL modem either from BSNL or from outside. Basic modem is available for around Rs.1000/-. If you want Wireless connectivity(Wi-Fi), you need to spend more. BSNL also provides modem on monthly rental basis. Installation charges for landline Rs.500/-, installation charges for broadband Rs.250/, deposit for Local/STD facility Rs.500/- and one month plan rental in advance.

Ex: If you opt for BB Home Combo ULD 650 plan, approximate initial cost will be:

Rs.1500(wireless modem) + Rs.750(installation charges LL/BB) + Rs.500(Local/STD deposit) + Rs.650(one month plan rent advance),  which totals to  Rs.3400/-.
