    Did you cross FUP? What's the speed you are getting now?

    I didn't check the speed and I don't know if I have crossed FUP for sure. But as usual youtube videos streaming in FHD without buffering. So I think this FUP is just for namesake.

    Here is the speedtest result. Tested just now.
    I am in this plan since 2nd week of July. For sure I reached FUP limit of 5GB for the month of July, but videos streamed without buffering. So yeah, I am getting upto 8mbps all the way.

    If we are going to get 8Mbps flat on 249 plan I don't know what the other plans are for :facepalm:

    It was the case even before. I was on 499/- plan and I was getting upto 8mbps all the way. I thought they will roll back and enforce this FUP thing, but they never did.

    Did you check the promotional plans? That's even more crazy. They are offering upto 20mbps for just 99/-. Of course, with daily FUP limit.

    Most won't get 20Mbps. Heck some people here were complaining they weren't getting 10Mbps. 8Mbps is the best to go with BSNL's ancient ADSL lines.

    That's the reason they are using the term "up to" and it's subject to technical feasibility.

    I dont understand why bsnl is only allowing new customers to opt for their FTTH plans-also i found that they have started a number of new tariffs such as BBG combo uld 300GB where one can get upto 20 MBps per day as long as their usage doesn't exceed 10gb-but that too is only intended for new users and their existing customers cannot reap any of the benefits from these new plans.

    This will surely anger and annoy a major portion their existing user base who have been using their overpriced broadband plans for all these years(like me,as there are no other alternatives in my area).

    This is surely a weird company-i am not sure they understand how to do business-when they come up with some attractive new offer it inevitably ships with so many loopholes and annoying quirks that they tend to become largely useless for the most part.

    If they are trying to lure new customers with these offers i am not sure how successful they will really be in the long run-most people dont even bother with bsnl these days due to the availability of cable broadband at a fraction of the price of a bsnl connection in most areas.

    ^^They always give such plans to new customers first & after 3-4 months they start giving it to existing customers.

    I had a BSNL landline and saw the 99/- plan ( 1.5 GB per day 20mbps + unlimited calling . I opted for that plan as I wanted free landline calls.
    I got the bill of 670/- something and was shocked.
    They did not inform me that there will be one time charge of 750/- for plan changes.
    Stupid bsnl idiots.

    Then can it be assumed that your bill amount won't exceed rs 99 in the upcoming months? If it really turns out to be the case then its perhaps an even more useful scheme than jio's 4g offers

    I have raised this issue with my local exchange people. Initially as expected they flatly refused saying that the fault lies in my end. But I presented all of my research and reasoning (including the Broadband Forum link) he finally agreed to escalate it to higher authorities. I have not heard of any feedback yet.

    It is done at an escalated level. I don't think exchange authorities can do anything. Happening so since almost 2 years now. Ad injection is nothing new. The news is that they are using DNS poisoning.

    Is there any plan in bsnl which provides symmetric download upload speeds?

    No,unless you count ~512kbps download speed as acceptable.

    ADSL is Asymmetric Data Subscriber Line. No point in asking symmetry unless it is FTTH.
