    Talking Exciting news ! BSNL is going to upgrade from 256 kbps to 512 kbps for 750 home UL.

    Both state run telecom service provider, BSNL and MTNL has slashed tariffs for the unlimited broadband plans as a promotional offer. According to MTNL’s release, Monthly fixed charge for the “TriB UL data-256 Combo” data plan will reduced to Rs. 599 and users can avail upload & download speed of 256 Kbps along with 100 free local calls. This scheme is valid upto 04/02/2009 and all the new and existing customers can avail the offer.

    Similarly BSNL is also planning to reduce the tariff for all the new and existing customers “Unlimited Home Plan 750 and 750 Plus” for the period of 15.11.2008 to 12.02.2009. BSNL is also increasing the upload & download speed of the users of the above two plans to 512 Kbps from the current 256 Kbps



    My prediction of 1 mbps UL @ Rs. 1200-1500/- is going to be near true in early 2009.

    I know this plan has been first started in kolkata but this plan has been started from dec 24,2008 and there is no word "kolkata" in the news given in my post #1 . So, it is possible to apply plan on whole states but by slowly(maybe).

    @scorpio
    I know this plan is only in kolkata
    How did you know, and how, you did not give the link here ?
    Neither you or the blog you quoted mention this fact.

    As an astrological prediction it is OK.!
    ( Planet "GURU" Jupiter period now !!!!)

    Recently a festival Diwali offer of Double the d/l
    was offered for ONLY NOV 2008 ( *conditions apply )
    and some circle web site/s carried the offer.
    specially Chennai/Gujarat etc.
    Rajasthan never posted the news but sent SMS etc.
    Calcutta issued advt in three languages ,
    but did not update in their website ! I think.

    Finally one user posted the DOT circular, which made it clear
    that this was for an All India Basis, but many could not avail the offer.
    Refer old threads in this forum.

    Depending upon the capacity, and target to be achieved, some circles
    may be permitted to give promotional offer/s.

    Recently only serving/retired GOI officials On All INDIA BASIS
    are being given 20% rebate in BB rental and usage.

    Incidentally modem rent has been reduced to Rs 50/= may be wef 1/8/2008
    and even BSNL staff do not know about this .( Type 1 ) Purchase Rs 1000/=
    Also the rent will be only Rs 25/- after 24 months of usage .
    see BSNL tariff pages for details.

    I do not need to post BSNL kolkata Link, the source link given already in my question post (#1) is applied for whole india (only kolkata city has not been written in source website) .

    anyway, Here is BSNL Kolkata link below for more clearance :

    In present time 750 UL is rental reduce to 500 Rs(calcutta telephones) and now bandwidth 256kbps to 512 kbps I think UL 1350 should get more bandwidth immediately otherwise this is unfair with the UL 1350 customer why they pay 1350 Rs even in single month without any major upgrade because where 512 kbps unlimited is now getting only 500 Rs

    In order to save BSNL customers migrate to other companies and attracting new customers, BSNL is using Broadband (by announcing exciting plan) a tool to fulfil this.

    But a big problem is that if INDO-PAK war happens, all exciting plans that are going to be announced will be in HALT(pending).

    i agree your point scorpio.

    Do you know , most of the customer migrate to different provider because of the bad customer support provided by the bsnl , but not for the tariff.
    instead reducing tariff, they should concentrate on quality of service and customer care.

    Usually customers first choose Tariff then quality and customer care service. If tariff is exciting like 1 mbps UL @ 1200/- then cutomers will go for this, they will not care for quality and customer care. Actually BSNL broadband quality and customer care are improving slowly and slowly. After all, India contains a lot of middle people.

    It is impossible to have Home 750 UL @1 mbps in 2009. 1 mbps home UL @ 1200-1500 is possible in 2009.

    Airtel has the "freedom" to give any plan to its users.
    At least some CIrcles of BSNL are allowed to give some Promotional
    packages for a limited period to retain/attract users.

    for instance , some of us Old users of Airtel are having Speed Upto 2Mbps
    connection with NU free ( 0900/0800PM to 0800AM)at same speed.
    Not available now for new user/s or those who did not
    opt for "Top UP" schemes earlier.

    I pay combo 499 Rs 499+ TopUp Rs 99/= plus taxes.
    Day usage 1 GB limit. ( Plus Rs 200 free phone calls )
