BSNL Plans to Take Over The Broadband Market

BSNL has recently laid out a new and exciting offer to its Broadband Customers. The Telecom giant and broadband provider has offered a 15 days test period for its 2 Mbps connection and has allowed free unlimited downloads within this period of time.
The official note at the BSNL website says,

All the customers registering their new Broadband connection till 31st March 2010 under any BSNL Broadband Plan of up to 2Mbps speed (limited/unlimited) shall be provided unlimited free download at 2Mbps for first fifteen (15) days, irrespective of the speed of the plan applied for.

This comes as a promotional offer from BSNL in times when all Indian broadband giants like Airtel, Reliance and MTNL are planning for expansion.

Those customers applying for an unlimited connection will get a 2 Mbps connection for the first 15 days. After the first 15 days, they will be reverted back to the previous plan. Those opting for a any other new connection will be given a grace period of 15 days to try this service free of charge.

BSNL is the broadband provider with the largest penetration in India and this test of a new speed is indicative of some progress in the field of broadband, where India keeps failing badly. This promotional offer by BSNL will let it penetrate better with the punch being the free trial. BSNL is also expecting a good conversion to the higher speed from current plan users.
