Before the new month, BSNL has launched three DSL broadband plans priced at Rs 299, Rs 399, and Rs 555. Unlike Fiber-to-the-Home broadband plans which are typically provided with high-speed internet, PSU’s DSL broadband plans offer access Slow internet. For the record, BSNL has over seven million wireline subscribers across India and the telephone company’s FTTH customer base (Bharat Fiber) exceeds just over one million. This means that a large part of BSNL Broadband users still use DSL plans. And it makes perfect sense that the Internet Service Provider (ISP) is launching new DSL plans aimed at basic users. The DSL broadband Rs 299, Rs 399 and Rs 555 packages come with speeds of just 10 Mbps.
