    Default How To Check BSNL Broadband Account Usage?

    Do you use BSNL broadband? It is good to frequently check your broadband account usage to understand your usage pattern. This will also help you to control your downloads if you are on volume based plan so that you do not run up into huge bills which you will later regret. Checking your BSNL broadband account usage also helps you to ensure that there are no abuses in your account and no one is making any unauthorized use of your broadband account.


    If you are not sure how to check your BSNL broadband account usage, here are the steps that you need to follow to check your usage. You should visit the following link to check your broadband usage Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd.. In this page you will find a link on top of the page called “Check Usage”. Click this link and it will open a new page from where you will be able to log into your account. Have your username and password ready before you visit this page. Enter your BSNL broadband username and password to enter your account and click the “Login” button.


    This will take you to the user portal from where you will be able to check your usage. Go through the various links available to check your usage. From here you will be able to check for the total usage as on a given date. You will notice that the data available is updated up to the previous day of your checking. Today’s usage will be updated in your account only by tomorrow.
    It is also possible to check your BSNL broadband usage through your mobile phones. You will be able to check your usage from your BSNL mobile as well as from other mobiles. You need to send the following text to get your BSNL broadband usage “bbu<space>telephone number with STD code”. If you are using BSNL mobile then the SMS should be sent to 52295. If you are using some other mobile connection, you need to send your SMS to 9448077777. Checking your BSNL broadband account usage through SMS is the easiest way to check your broadband usage.

    If you want alerts from BSNL when you cross your monthly usage limits as per your package, then you can register for free alerts. This will help you keep a tab on your broadband usage. To register you need to send the following SMS “REG <space> telephone number with STD code”. This will register your account for free alerts and you will start getting your alerts to the mobile phone from which you have sent your SMS. This is highly helpful because you need not have to go online to check whether your usage limits have been crossed.

    Do not feel lazy to check your account usage. Regularly checking your usage will put you in total control of your broadband bills.

    Lightbulb SMS usage tells that i have unlimited plan

    i am using home combo plan of rs 500 (2.5 GB free limit)
    n it was shown in SAP selfcare portal of BSNL,
    but today it is showing that there is no unbilled usage of broadband.
    & when i sent "BBU<space>telephoneno" (without quotes) to 9448077777,
    then sms from BSNL came which tells me that my free limit is Unlimited..
    can anybody explain that to me?

    1. Mention your circle/location. There are 5 sites according to your circle where you can check your usage.

    2. Alternatively, you can use a bandwidth meter. Shaplus or Networx will do. Please note that it won't show what is in the portal, instead the actually value based on your PC.

    3. Make a call to the local exchange. They keep your portal ID in their records.

    or call the BB Postpaid Customer care @ 18004241600
    If you haven't changed your portal id/pass ,email id/pass, service user id/pass, they can tell you.
    If you have, then ask them to give the number of SDE of your exchange.Contact him and he will tell you your recent details.

    @ h n s mani

    The only alternative is to use a good bandwidth meter like Networx or Shaplus and counter check usage at portal at regular intervals. The above mentioned bandwidth meters when configured properly gives more or less same values as BSNL portal.

    Hi Mr Dilip,

    thanks for your quick rep and suggestion.But herein lies the catch.Shaplus.com does not connect to sdc.bsnl.co.in.it connects readily to data.bsnl.in which is the portal for Kerala and Tn circles. am in Mysore.I was able to log into data.bsnl.in thru shaplus.com from my friend's laptop at Thrissur.but when I tried the same from mysore it does not connect.The nuisance is this portal works only IN IE.

    Use the bandwidth meter, not dataone tool. It monitors your computer's network adapter and check usage. Also try Networx, it has a graphics interface. Use both to make sure that one of it is not wrong.

    Shaplus do not support SDC portal because no one was willing to give their password to the author to code it for that portal. You can mail him your password and request support for your site.

    @ Prakriti

    You have posted in the wrong section and hence no replies. Please ask here

    Bsnl 3g discussions within the Mobile broadband

    Are you using a 2G connection or 3G ? Mention model and make of your data card. If it is not purchased from any ISP, you can use most 2G and 3G SIMs with it. But if you got it from an ISP, you may need to unlock it before use SIM from another provider.

    Also explain " chat ". Is it video chat or audio chat ? If yes, how long per day ? If video chat, data consumed varies according to the quality of video.

    You can check the data consumption by installing a bandwidth monitor from Networx or Shaplus.
