Revised BSNL Fiber to the Home (FTTH) and broadband prepayment system
BSNL has also revised its prepayment scheme for FTTH and broadband users. The revised schemes will apply to BSNL Bharat Fiber (FTTH), DSL Broadband, BBoWiFi (Broadband over WiFi) and Bharat AirFiber customers starting November 11, 2020. The development was first noticed by Kerala Telecom. The new prepayment system will not apply to the recently launched BSNL Bharat Fiber (FTTH) plans: Fiber Basic 449, Fiber Basic Plus 599, Fiber Value 799, Fiber Premium 999 and Fiber Ultra 1499.
Customers currently enrolled in all other broadband plans can opt for half-yearly, annual, two-year, or revised three-year prepayment options.
For the revised annual payment scheme, customers will need to pay 10.5 months for 12 months of service. For the revised two-year prepayment scheme, customers will need to pay 20.5 months to get 24 months of service. For the revised three-year prepayment scheme, customers will need to pay 30.5 months to get 36 months of service.
Customers can change their BSNL FTTH or Broadband plan to anticipate the payment scheme by applying to the nearest BSNL Customer Service Center. However, customers can change their existing broadband or FTTH plan online via the BSNL Selfcare Portal without visiting the BSNL Customer Service Center.
