After announcing the revision in download speed and free data usage in existing Bharat Fiber (FTTH) Broadband plans, the state run telecom major – Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) – has revised advance higher payment option and duration of service for all DSL and Bharat Fiber (FTTH) broadband plans in selected cities.
As per the latest information, BSNL has also introduced 6 months advance payment option where a customer need to pay for 5.5 months rental to avail service period of 6 months. Similarly, by paying for 10.5 months FMC (fixed monthly rent), a customer may enjoy 12 months (One Year) service. A customer can enjoy two year service period (24 months) by paying for just 20.5 months FMC and three year service (36 months) at just 30.5 months FMC.
