]The new promotional broadband plan offer will be available upto 30th November.
not listed so far, in Bsnl.Karnataka site.
wait for festival offers Dasara and Diwali ( Deepavali )
What is the difference? 499 + 180 ( rental) = 689 + taxes, right? may be beneficial as a home 500c user not aware.
AAAAH again this shitty speed of 256Kbps crap.
I am in India now.earlier when i was abroad i enjoyed blazing speeds of 24Mbps and now I feel like moving on a bull-cart.GAWD!Please ask BSNL to upgrade the speed atleast ask them to get around 5-10Mbps speed and unlimited.
I know many users who are waiting for an unlimited plan for less than Rs. 500 due to budget problems. You can get an 8 Mbps connection for Rs. 2500. The more you are willing to pay, higher will be your speed.
This may help

thanks meetdilip but i want to know a particular reason that why there is so much scarcity of bandwidth in India?I mean even in African countries you wont see ISPs having any scheme like LIMITED USAGE.
I am not going against India but.India is a developing nation and if u take example with anyother county like for say China they provide you 4Mbps unlimited for 700INR*/month and without any FUP or limitation.
Why do we have Limited Usage plans in India and whats the government getting from it?
India has many competitors in every field say mobile networks or broadband facilities but still we cannot get something which we need severely for a fair price?
You are right. It is high time for private players to do something on this issue. BSNL as usual will follow.
Well afaik private players always have some hidden cost inside their plans or they have this weird(*) sign which means conditions apply and when u scroll down the page to know what it means then you get to know what all false games the can play to fool their customers.
Thinking for several days I (myself) came on 2 points which could be the reason that Indian ISPs are not providing Unlimited usage with high bandwidth for a cheap price.
1.Indian government is scared if,its made cheap then every Indian will download each and everything on hard drive and will never spend any penny on optical media.
2.Indian ISPs are not well equipped or trained to provide their customers with high bandwidth and UL usage may be they dont have enough severs to take care of.
Could be any reason you guys are more talented and experienced with this thing.You guys must be having a good or exact answer.
Piracy may be also one reason.We use everything pirated here; from OS to games.Also DVDrip movies etc.If higher bandwidth at unlimited is achieved,piracy will go heavy.
"High Speed Broadband connectivity at 256 Kbps."
who support this statement? when 256 is considered high speed? these days GSM network carry that sort of speed, BSNL is still Under The Rocks! and will there for ever.
BSNL even if its 256 kbps , is all over india and esp remote villages. where does your RIL stand ?
dont just troll, do something real good for the nation.
Per Capita Income in United States $ 37,500
Windows 7 Home Premium $160
Per Capita Income in India $ 2,880
Windows 7 Home Premium $160 (Rs. 5200)
This is the reason why western country people don't need piracy.
1st i was using pirated and playing CS game online on steam but when it used to show sudden pop-up esp when in online match about pirated OS. and one day i just got too much fed up by those pop up and i landed buying the legal OS. however i used the offer which came in pop-up and hence got it real cheap for 6800/- and after i placed order , i got activation key and after 15 days a DVD pack from MS which is having 32 and 64 bit OS.
so this is my story whats your story ?
I opted for Reliance Broadnet connection some years back. As a part of some limited time promotional offer, I got everything for free (modem and landline). However, despite the fact being that their DSLAM is situated in the building next to my premises, the link light never stayed stable. Back then I greatly liked their speed on demand feature. Alas, I had to give request for disconnection within a month. And guess what, they did not come back for the landline or the modem!
Am not trying to bad mouth this particular organization. Yet, these are my experiences with Reliance Communications! In simpler terms, this is one company whose services I would not be touching even with a 10 foot pole!
Kudos to BSNL for introducing such plans!
Even my local cable net wala gives better service and plans than RIL.
giving ISP to villagers don't make you great
So you want to say that villagers dont need net ? c'mon get out of your sick mentality.
calling 256kbps as high speed broadband Blame TRAI and not BSNL.
@^:Simply no offense,
ROFL guys like you are like "kooyen ke mendak" who jumps in cable wala boundary whats going outside is not your cup of tea.
would you tell which plan of your cable wala is greater than Reliance?
Yet another offtopic post (or rant):
One thing that I have learned to live with (especially in this country), is not to compare the services offered by the respective ISPs. The quality of service varies wildly and we are basically at the mercy of the officials. This is true for both government based as well as private operators. Many people will blame BSNL; they will cite the "BSNL babus" as lazy and unproductive lot! However, I have also come across certain "agents" of private ISPs, who charge unsuspecting customers for the length of wiring included while giving the BB connection!
The only way to wriggle out and survive in this situation is to take intelligent decisions. Make good use of the common sense and question the authorities, if you have any doubts.
I was a devout subscriber of BSNL Broadband since March 2005. Lately, I am with Airtel Broadband. Why? I learnt that Airtel is offering 1Mbps UL for just 499/- in my state. Yes, there is a FUP policy of 5GB. The FUP policy of Airtel works in wonderful manners. They penalize only those who have made it their life's aim to download the entire internet! I also learnt that even though Airtel touts 5GB, 10GB as the FUP, the default FUP of all plans is 100GB. I made certain phone calls and yes, I couldn't believe my ears. Within a day or two a shining new modem from Airtel was installed at my premises.
Right now, I am enjoying 2 Mbps UL from Airtel Broadband. They upgraded my 1 Mbps to 2 Mbps - free of cost. I am not sure of the revised FUP. But, I find that I am not penalized, when the entire nation is crying foul over the practices of this particular ISP!
For me, Airtel is the best out there. It does not necessarily mean that everyone must opt for the services of Airtel. Members will not find me citing Airtel's services as the next holy grail too. However, it is better to keep a sharp look out for the plans offered by the competing ISPs. You might never know when you might strike gold!
PS: I still have that trusty old BSNL connection with me.
Exactly, Now you are on track. Long time ago i have read a post from you mentioning that you had BAD experience with BSNL and then GOOD with RIL and since then , ranting about same till today. Good luck and Have Fun. Hope RIL will pay you for your time.its common indian behavior if someone is not happy with something then they just spread ****
oh...really ?dude you don't have any clue what tech reliance uses to employ broadband be it wired or wireless reliance simply surpasses every isp in India
if that technology is so good why not provide internet all over India including remote villages ?
FYI : Dont think that you are the smart ass here.
^BSNL doesnt have any hidden cost like the private ISPs have.
They loot their customers with drooling schemes but dont forget to look at their (*) sign at bottom that is where all the prices are hidden.
i`ve subscribed for unlimited plan 750+ home plan.. & i did it for yearly plan. paid rs. 9000.. i`ve subscribed before 3 months.. so what will be the thing with me. after 500 unlimited plan will launch... will i get refund.?
Say you change your plan from Oct1st.
For four months Rs 750/= x 4 =Rs 3000( Taxes extra) will be deducted from your Advance Rs 9000/= and balance Rs 6000/= credit adjusted towards new tariff plan. every month.
If any Security Deposit was paid for UL750, this will be also deducted.
Usually no cash refund is made.
Check conditions in tariffs in bsnl links below.
BB Home UL 499 speed 256Kbps ( All circles except Hyderabad circle)
for the UL 499 are they giving free modem (located Gujarat)
Rcom, you are sick!
256 is a decade old speed, that is to say India is about 10 - 15 years backwards as compared China or other developing countries. In any case internet is for everyone regardless of city or village. If you compare India with next door(China) I would say entire nation(India) is village in terms of technology & infrastructure. Dare to say no?
Be sensitive in making comments else get whacked.
I am a existing BSNL broad band customer.I am using Home 500 plan.Now i want to change my plan to BB Home UL 499.I know it's downloadind speed is 256 Kbps .I am located at Thrissur,Kodakara circle(3 km from kodakara circle).What is the real downloading speed of BB Home UL 499 plan i mean exact speed , if that not available tell approximate speed.
NOTE : "256kbps" is 256 Kilo BIT per second and NOT... 256 kilo BYTE per second...
8bits = 1byte
I heard that download 1GB it wold take approximately 8hr'50min which is almost 9hr... Taking The download as 32KiloByte.
Is that TRUE?
respond as soon as possible.
Rcom, you sounds more like a toad in a well. What's wrong with comparing with other countries? Otherwise how will you know the standards? If you call that brag, continue to stay in that well! You mentioned village people can't distingush the difference between fibre and copper and their willingness to pay. Who are you to say that - are you the minister in-charge? That is why I said you are insensitive.
However, if you think Reliance is good it's upto you. But BSNL has at least something for everyone all over the nation even rural areas.
1,24X7 even speed with no silly exception of peak hours slow down
2,FIber-To-Node connectivity which is easily scalable upto 200MbPS!! and for your kind info Verizon wireless in USA uses same tech as Reliance.
3,Ultra low pings without any fluctuations due to Flag Cable which is owned by reliance you get fastest pings possible across other continents.
4,Plans which are free from FUP, does bsnl gives 1 or 2 MbPS pure UL plans?
5,Same Upload rate no matter you are on 300 or 2000 kbps plan you will get same Upload speed 300kbps plan give 300kbps Ul speed does BSNL give you that? thus who use torrents will just love reliance.
6,Do you get connectivity options like Wimax,Fiber Metro Ethernet,Fiber backed ADSL, Evdo etc with BSNL? apart from ADSL which rely upon choked up national internet backbone all service of BSNL are nothing more than nightmare.
Please suggest a tariff plan of Reliance ISP
same as Bsnlhome 499 speed 256 Kbps or the speeds you mention
for Rs 499/= Taxes. Modem rent not included
1,450 Flat fee plan which gives 300KbPS speed
2,499 combo plan in which you get 300KbPS speed with free Rs 50 calls every month which are charged flat .50 paisa/min to any number in india
great thing is that both plans are available on Fiber-To-Node link i.e Metro Ethernet and you don't have to give modem rent or pay for it just pay 500 as installation and that's all! no modem complexities are needed just pop the RJ-45 wire in lan card and go! because of Fiber backed nodes you don't have to worry about SNR and other painstaking stuff which you see in ADSL! its the most simplest yet sophisticated mode of internet in India by Reliance.

^and is your Fibre-to-Node available in every corner of India?
Does it say min of 300kbps speed or is it upto 300kbps?
but i'm using 2mbps plan and getting this
and its more than they state
fiber to node is available in most of the cities now don't whine by saying that my Village or gali doesn't have it so its bad its like asking for an airport in every city and laying fiber is not cheap like laying copper
Lol no i will never opt for reliance.
Reliance was once upon a time good with its CDMA network now ppl are fed up with its false bills.
I am not whining about anything,cause kids like you are used to trolling and flamming.
For your kind information BSNL has also come up with FTTH with provides a downstream of 2.55Gbits/sec and upstream of 1.55Mbits/sec.
No u did not "TOLD" me to opt for reliance and yes sir we are so stupid.
@SCOOBZ bsnl is providing broadband in every corners of India tats true, but if u compare village, town users n cities users, city users r ready to pay more for higher speed n unlimited download with good connectivity.... so the people expect more, which bsnl cannot provide. if u are in the city better opt for reliance or airtel... by the way i used reliance broadband for 2 years, had no issues....
Please see this thread and help the user to go WIFI with reliance BB connection.

USP of BSNL:
With BSNL BB no problem in connecting multiple system/s or using WIFI mode.
USP: Unique selling point !
