Indian government is slowly getting influence from private sectors companies. In order to stay afloat in immense competition, government companies are up scaling themselves for better pre-sales and post-sales support to their customers. On similar move, government-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited – well known as BSNL – has announced that soon fiber-based 100 Mbps internet connectivity will be rolled out.

According to a DNA report, Pune will be the first city which will witness such rollout. Company has already installed and tested the fiber to home (FTTH) network in the city and now looking to offer 1,000 of these connections to high-value customers in the city over the next three months, said V.K. Mahendra – Principal G.M. BSNL.

To beat the competition, especially when many providers like “You Telecom” are offering 12 Mbps at just Rs 999, BSNL has planned out very competitive tariff plans that stats from ₹1,500 ($30) for 2 Mbps connection but capped at 8 GB of data transfer per month. The highest connectivity of 100 Mbps can be obtained at ₹ 83,999 ($1,700) per month with unlimited data transfer.  Definitely, such plan is not meant for general consumer as such high seed is not required by most of the users unless they are engaged with the business which demands huge data transfer with fastest connectivity like Music Portals, Video ad agencies etc.

Though, the pricing is quite expensive at the moment but for a country like India where people are still hanging around with dial-up and 256 Kbps connectivity, its undoubtedly a big achievement. With this launch Indian will stand among elite list of countries who offer 100 Mpbs connectivity lie South Korea and USA.

However, the road is not going to be smooth for BSNL. They also need to work a lot with their post-sales support and quality man power and infrastructure which can genuinely and effectively maintain such speed of connectivity. Frequent failures, down time and delay in support will only back-fire as the premium customers who will opt for gradient speed can’t afford to hang around with any sloppy service.
