BSNL to Discontinue Prepaid Broadband Plans, Migrate Existing Users to Postpaid: Report

According to reports, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited is terminating all of its prepaid internet services across all telecom circles. Prepaid broadband is only available in the DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) segment, and subscribers get unlimited high-speed broadband Internet access without having to pay a monthly fee. According to reports, due to the tiny number of prepaid internet subscribers, BSNL has decided to discontinue the service and move existing users to postpaid. Mobility, control over Internet charges, sharing of DSL broadband connections, and other features are included in the BSNL prepaid broadband service.

BSNL authorities have asked all telecom circles to take action and transition all existing prepaid DSL broadband subscribers to postpaid DSL broadband, according to KeralaTelecom. The balance of their previous prepaid account will be transferred to their new postpaid account as credit. According to the research, clients who are interested in a BSNL Bharat Fiber (FTTH) or Bharat Air Fiber (BAF) connection can do so because DSL broadband connections have limitations in terms of maximum download and upload speeds. The PSU has been contacted for comment on the purported action.

As previously said, BSNL is thought to be taking this step because the prepaid broadband category has a small user base. Despite the fact that prepaid broadband packages start at Rs. 200, this is the case. These plans allowed users to connect to their broadband account over an Internet-enabled telephone line from anywhere in the country. These prepaid broadband plans also allow a group of prepaid broadband clients, such as students or professionals, to share a DSL connection. For consumers across India, BSNL had been selling both limited and unlimited prepaid broadband plans.

BSNL is claimed to have introduced a special discount scheme for current landline subscribers upgrading to BSNL FTTH to provide a smooth transition from prepaid DSL broadband connections. Users transferring are apparently offered a Rs. 600 discount in addition to the ability to keep their previous telephone number.
