BSNL to bundle broadband and telephony

21 Feb 2006

State-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL), India’s dominant provider of fixed line telephony services, is planning to bundle its fixed line telephony and broadband products to encourage take-up of high speed internet services, according to The Economic Times. The paper reports that BSNL will waive the monthly phone line rental for new users taking both products, though it will still charge its standard INR100 (USD2.25) connection fee. BSNL’s residential broadband products start at INR250 per month, rising to INR3,300; it had signed up 840,000 broadband users by the end of 2005.
