NEW DELHI: Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has relaunched their ‘5GB Free Trial’ offer for their landline customers. The offer was initially launched back in March and is aimed at bringing BSNL landline subscribers under the umbrella of broadband connectivity without spending any additional charges in a month. The state-owned telecom major is providing up to 10 Mbps internet speed alongside a daily quota of 5GB and up to 1 Mbps speed after the 5GB has been used up. The new trial offer by BSNL also provides users with an email ID space with 1GB of storage.
In regards to an official circular which was posted on the BSNL Chennai website, the 5GB Free Trail offer is now applicable to all existing landline customers of the operators in India, apart from users who are residing in the Andaman and Nicobar circle. The new offer brings to users up to 10 Mbps of download speed alongside 5GB of daily data. After the user exceeds the given data limit, the subscribers will be able to use the internet at 1 Mbps internet speed.
The new trial offer is now available to users on a promotional basis until July 31 for only BSNL customers who have not subscribed to the broadband connection, according to the circular posted by the telecom major. The validity of the benefits which come with the offer is 30 days from the date of activation.
One major point to note here is that BSNL will not be charging the users for installation charges or any security deposits in order to provide the free trial offer. However, BSNL landline users who choose the broadband trial will need to have their own customer premise equipment (CPE) or modem.
After the landline user has surpassed the plan validity period, the broadband trial offer will be migrated to regular BSNL broadband plans.
The broadband trial offer was initially launched by BSNL back in March and remained valid until March 31. The plan has now been reintroduced so as to provide users with limited access to their BSNL broadband service to their existing landline customers for free. The relaunching of the trial offer by BSNL was first spotted by DreamDTH forums.
