To tackle the increasing competition and to retain its existing customers in the NCR region, state-owned telecom operator, BSNL has launched new high-speed VDSL plans in the region.

These VDSL Unlimited plans would be available in Ghaziabad and Noida SSAs of UP West circle, and Faridabad and Gurgaon SSAs of Haryana telecom circle. These plans are up for subscription since May 11, 2016.

These new VDSL plans come with increased FUP quota with speed up to 16 Mbps. It is worth noting that these plans still have the speed cap of 512 Kbps, which kicks in after you exhaust your FUP quota.

The subscribers of these plans would also be able to make free night calls to any number in India from 9 pm to 7 am. The subscribers can also opt for these plans at the same tariff on FTTH also.

BSNL has launched very lucrative plans for these telecom circles, but I still believe that there is a huge scope for improvement and offering better plans. The FUP quota is not bad at all, but what would worry anyone subscribing to these plans is the crawlingly slow speed of 512 Kbps post FUP quota.

BSNL Removes Its Servers From Speedtest.net

BSNL had recently set up its servers on speedtest.net to address the complaints regarding slow internet speed from its subscribers on the very popular internet speed testing service, Speedtest.net.

These servers were set up to ensure that its subscribers get an accurate result of their internet speed and don’t get confused by incorrect results shown by third party servers.

But now, BSNL has pulled out its servers from Speedtest. It states that its competitor’s advertisements were on the same page of the server where its users would check their speed. The telecom company believes that it may lose its precious subscribers due to these advertisements.

Now, that BSNL has pulled out its servers from Speedtest.net, where would it ask its subscribers to check their internet connectivity speed?

If you are a BSNL subscriber then do let us know if this new development would affect you in any way.
