If you are a BSNL Landline or BSNL DSL Broadband customer, you may have already considered upgrading your existing connection to FTTH. The very first question that comes to your mind will be about various options or offers which are available to existing BSNL Landline / DSL Broadband customers on migrating to fiber internet connection (FTTH).
Now, let us explore what all are the various offers and special discount schemes which are currently available on converting your existing BSNL Landline number to FTTH. At present your landline telephone connection is working on a dedicated copper cable pair which run from your nearest telephone exchange all the way down to your home. BSNL’s DSL Broadband connections are also working over the same copper cable pair. The performance or download speed of traditional BSNL DSL Broadband Internet connections depends directly on the distance from your home / office to nearest BSNL telephone exchange and the quality of copper cable.
If you are facing frequent disconnection or service issues on your existing BSNL DSL Broadband connection, you can easily migrate to BSNL Fiber Broadband Connection (BSNL FTTH). BSNL has already launched a bouquet of special offers and discount schemes for such customers who are interested to migrate to FTTH. The major problem which is currently being faced by BSNL DSL Broadband customers is the low upload speed of DSL technology. We can avail maximum upload speed of just 1Mbps in DSL technology and that too if you are living very close to BSNL exchange. The quality of copper cable pair also plays an important role in upload speed too. Upload speed matters when you are using your broadband internet connection for Video Surveillance (For CCTV / Security Camera), Video Conferencing, Video Calls etc.
Offers available to existing Landline & DSL Broadband Customers on migrating to Bharat Fiber (FTTH)
Download speed of BSNL FTTH plans range from 30Mbps to 300Mbps. Existing landline or DSL broadband customer may choose any FTTH (Bharat Fiber) plan as per his/her requirement.

1. Migration of Same Landline Number to Bharat Fiber (BSNL FTTH).
Earlier, BSNL was allotting special numbering level for FTTH connections. Conversion of existing landline number to FTTH was also not possible at that time. After the upgradation of old telephone exchanges to Next Generation Network (NGN), it is technically possible to convert an existing landline number (working on copper cable pair) to FTTH. As almost all BSNL telephone exchanges are now upgraded to NGN, you can avail the same landline number on fiber. So if you have plans to upgrade your BSNL copper connection to fiber, first ask your nearest telephone exchange / BSNL CSC regarding the availability of same number on FTTH. If it is feasible, just submit your BSNL FTTH application form at nearest BSNL CSC or BSNL Telephone Exchange.
2. Rent Free Aseem Plan to Landline/Broadband Customers migrating to BSNL FTTH.
If conversion of same landline number to FTTH is not feasible in your telephone exchange, you can avail this second option. Here, BSNL will create a new telephone number for your FTTH connection. At the same time, you can maintain your existing landline number as a virtual telephone connection. Virtual connection means, your old landline number will be created in BSNL exchange only and all calls coming to that number will be automatically routed to your new FTTH number. It means, there will not be any physical connectivity for your old landline number but the number will be active in your name and you will never miss any calls coming to that number.
BSNL’s special plan for virtual numbers are named as Aseem. BSNL is also offering Aseem Plan commercially to individuals who need virtual numbers for their offices / home. In such cases, all incoming calls to the Virtual Landline Number will be routed to the mobile number as requested by the customer. Charges for BSNL Aseem Plan is Rs 99/- (For Routing Calls to BSNL Mobile Numbers) for 4 months or Rs 199/- for 4 months (For Routing Calls to Non BSNL Mobile Numbers).
If same number conversion is not feasible in your telephone exchange, you can ask for Rent Free Aseem Plan. Here, you can avail all incoming calls on your old landline number routed to your new FTTH number absolutely free.
3. BSNL Rs 100/- Unlimited Combo Broadband Internet Plan (1GB CS340 Plan) to customers upgrading to Bharat Fiber (BSNL FTTH).
BSNL Kerala Telecom Circle introduced this special unlimited combo broadband plan with fixed monthly rent of just Rs 100/- as an exclusive offer to existing landline and DSL Broadband customers who are migrating to FTTH. Here, customers can keep their existing copper line as a backup broadband connection to FTTH by paying a nominal monthly rent of just Rs 100/-.
