BSNL launched 3G service in India with costly data plans

BSNL has been decided to introduce 3-G mobile services, with this launch, BSNL/MTNL had become first company to launch this service in India. Presently it is available in Ambala and is going to be available shortly in all state capitals and other major cities.

BSNL claims "Practically, you are going to get broadband experience with speed better than 384 KBPS"

A new 128kb USIM is required to access 3G, which can be bought by paying Rs 300. USIM stand for Universal Subscriber Identification Module. USIM is provided to access 3G services. Please keep in mind that 3G services depends on your handset. At this stage migration is not allowed, you have to buy the new SIM, but you can retain your BSNL/MTNL number, which is not possible for private operators.

Lets talk about the charges..., Its really costly...

If you want to try the service, you can go for

Trial Pack of 50 MB worth Rs 60 with 15 days Validity.
Trial Pack of 100 MB worth Rs 120 with 15 days Validity.

BSNL 3G plans (MBV 250, MBV 400, MBV 650, MBV 1000, MBV 3001) are expensive too.., You get unlimited internet surfing if you pay around Rs 3300 Per month.
You Pay Rs 290 for 300 MB and Rs 1150 for 5GB. I wish BSNL will reduce the charges as soon as it gets more subscription. You can also buy the data card, USB or PCMCI which supports HSDPA.

  1. Good Lord!! That is way too expensive. There is no way anyone in their right mind would pay 3300 bucks for Unlimited. At Broadband speeds, any other plans are not worth it. Even 5 GB wont be enough for most people in a month if they start downloading big with speeds in excess of 384 Kbps. Its better to wait for now and keep using the existing Dataone Unlimited Broadband Plan for 500 bucks.

  2. na its too expensive
