BSNL offering free landline with Broadband Connection
State owned Telecom Company BSNL has been losing customers of their telecom services ever since the private operators entered the market. The company now plans to strike back as they have decided to offer free landline phones for customers opting for their broadband services.
The company hopes that they would lure back a lot of users with this new offering as the demand for broadband connectivity is increasing phenomenally in the Indian market. Consumers are not interested in paying for something they do not plan to use and this has made BSNL offer the telephone connection for free without any rental along with the broadband connection.
This scheme is expected to be launched across the country in the coming months. The reports coming in say that the consumer would be required to pay a single activation charge, which is likely to be Rs 100. Rentals are expected to be either minimal or simply zero and the consumers would be required to pay only the costs of the phone calls.
BSNL currently offers broadband packages with costs varying from Rs 250 to Rs 3,300 for the home users. For the corporate users, the packages start from Rs 700 and go up to Rs 9,000 per month depending on the bandwidth.
