BSNL India’s largest Landline service provider is trying their maximum to convince the customers by retaining their loyalty towards the network. By the recent developments it feels like it’s not only the current subscribers they are aiming at, but also they are trying their hand to attract new ones to the network. The move like increasing their minimum speed to 1Mbps can be a part of it. Through this, subscribers will get minimum speed of 1 Mbps and for FUP plans the post FUP speed will be minimum 1 Mbps.
Yet another interesting move is from August 15, Customers of state-run BSNL will be able to make free unlimited calls on any mobile or landline number in the country on Sundays.
