Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has decided to close it’s prepaid broadband service which is currently available across all the telecom circles. At present BSNL offers prepaid broadband service only in DSL segment. Customers were able to avail unlimited high speed broadband internet access without the fear of monthly bill shock. There were more advantages for BSNL’s prepaid broadband which include – mobility, control on internet charges, sharing of DSL Broadband connections etc.
Earlier, BSNL’s prepaid broadband customers were allowed to use their broadband account anywhere in the country on an internet enabled telephone line. It was also possible to share a single DSL connection among a group of prepaid broadband customers like students, professionals etc. BSNL was offering both limited and unlimited prepaid broadband plans for its customers all over India. BSNL prepaid broadband packs were starting from just Rs 200/- onwards. As the customer base in prepaid broadband segment is very small, BSNL authorities has now decided to close the service by migrating existing prepaid brodband customers to postpaid services.
