BSNL-gprs-data-packsBSNL has recently revised their Data Plans ( All these BSNL net plans works on both Mobile and Data card users) and launched unified 2G and 3G data plans. These Data Packs are not only available across the India but also a lot cheaper for 3G users. However, The 2G customers are now paying more for data plan.

These GPRS Packs are have less option to choose and also replaced almost all old 2G and 3G data plans. Following Private operators BSNL had reduced the cost of 1GB unified internet pack to Rs. 139. The validity of this pack is 30 days. Earlier, the price of same data on 3G was costing Rs. 151 and the the Rs. 98 data pack for 2G provided 1250 MB.

Before discussing other details let’s take a look on the internet pack chart.

The above unified 2G and 3G data plans are available from August 15, 2013. Also note the MRP of the Prepaid GPRS plan will vary by Rs. ±2 from circle to circle for *technical* reasons.

If you find anything wrong with plan. Please inform us!

A few more information about these BSNL internet packs:

All the BSNL internet packs are available for Mobile users and Data Card users, unless it is specified in the plan details. There are some data card specific plans which works with data card FRCs.

BSNL allow true free data roaming across the country, even in Delhi and Mumbai. However, BSNL is looking for true free national roaming on both voice and data plans. But presently both of them provide free data roaming across India.

BSNL provide online recharges for instant activation for their net plans. The only thing you need is to have a debit card. Using any debit card, credit card or internet banking you can securely recharge your BSNL Mobile.

To connect with internet using your mobile you have to set BSNLNET as your APN. Visit here more information about BSNL GPRS settings.

    Dear Admin,
    Is there any option to activate data packs on bsnl number through SMS and yes SMS ‘help data’ to 53733 is not working.
    Thnks

  2. abbas sk says

    i am abbas.bsnl all data plans are 3g plan .actually bsnl has no separate 2g plan .so there is no 3g signal but you rc 3g pack and you get maximum 10 ks/sc.please dear customer,dont use bsnl oprator and data plans.i am suggest that we are all used to aircel or reliance 2g pack
    (only student or 2g user).

  3. krupal bhoi says

    kya bsnl me low cost me unlimited plan avalible nahi hai?
    1GB plan ke liye 150-180rs bahut jyada hai
    bsnl customer ko internet pack se lut rahi hai or uski speed bhi bahut kum hoti hai

  4. arvind says

    bsnl 2g 3g service very poor in bareilly up . My sim is of up east circle but i reside in up west bly up. plz somebody solve my problem .
    Thank u

  5. says

    I demand an arguement! Why there are no unlimited plans for BSNL? Come on! Give me a break. Is Bharath Sanchar soo cheap than others. I fully agree that BSNL 3G is best……..but limited plans for prepaid customers?

    Please somebody do something about this. With all Hopes……………

    • shan says

      Yeah i have to say the same argument. Why there is no FUP plan on 2G/3G..

      Hey Guys, In your opinion Which is the best Network for data/internet plan ??

  6. Amar Jyoti Dutta says

    Hello Sir, how can I activate Rs.139 3G Internet pack from my main balance in Assam? The customer care couldn’t help me. Please help.

  7. Nirajkumar.J. Antani says

    Kindly inform methat:
    1. What is difft between BSNL GPRS & BSNL Pre-paid data-pack?
    2. I have BSNL Pre-paid mobile connection, to get Internet on mobile with VDO downloading what to do?
    3. I have ” SONY EXPERIA E1 SS” mobile hand set.
    4. to get internet on moble , what is require either GPRS OR Data pack, as I have pre-paid connection.

    thanks.

    • says

      Hello Niraj,

      1. Both are same.
      2. Recharge with any data pack (GPRS Packs, Data STV … all are same). If you want to download videos, pick high bigger denomination.
      3. You have perfect handset for internet browsing and downloading video.
      4. As GPRS OR Data pack are same, just ask your retailer to recharge.

      PS: In order to connect to internet you will also need GPRS settings apart from the recharge.

  9. Aditya Daruka says

    Hello Sir
    I have a bsnl 3g dongle which i purchased from maharashtra.But now I have shifted to Kolkata.So can I use the same dongle here in kolkata without paying any roaming charges.Also what are the unlimited 3g plans available in bsnl.
    Thankyou

    • says

      Hello Aditya,

      All of you Maharashtra BSNL Plans will work in Kolkata, without paying anything extra (as roaming charge). Sadly, there is not unlimited 3G data plans available in BSNL 3G/2G. If you really need a 3G unlimited dongle switch to BSNL 3G EVDO plans. At Rs. 750/m you will get unlimited data. But first of all check the EVDO coverage at your location.

  10. Harjinder Singh says

          it was possible to get 3g network on 2g plans but u wouldn’t get 3g speed on 300plan .
          all the 2g plans are already closed by bsnl for all circles.
          so u can recharge 3g data packs available in ur circle.

    Secondly How can I know 3g or 2g area?

  33. Akash Deep Satpathi says

    I was about to buy BSNL SIM for 3G Internet, but now I am thinking BSNL Broadband would be much more better for me.

  34. TKN says

    So damn disappointed on this kind of revise, I still remember when I used to get unlimited internet for a whole month 2/3 years back on 99Rs and they there was 10GB @ 270Rs and now slaughter nearly half at same price 5GB @ 270Rs. I’m wondering if there’s any difference using 2G or 3G cause both of their data cost nearly the same if not equal but very close. But one best thing happened that this eve I’ve a humangous near 1Mbps speed on 2G, of course there fair share of tweeks, its just I rather use 3G network rather than 2G on and I use to get fair 128Kbps speed but this eve I was just flabbergasted with speed and if they gonna make the bandwidth that big then it okay with me on this 5GB @ 270Rs

  35. ganesh says

    friend

    im planning to change my mobile 3g data network frm vodafon to bsnl..

    I LIVE IN BHIKANGAON DIST- KHARGONE (M.P.) I WANT A BROADBAND CONNECTION BUT BSNL OFFICER SAY TO ME THEY HAVE NO CABLE.

    • ravi says

      bsnl 3g data card in one option and you can use it for both type of recharges as 2g $ 3g plansand speed is really good even in 2g plan except uninterrupted vedios every is same.and for that no need for cables and ask about the facilities bsnl have in your circle through RTI to get exact picture.

  37. Shreyas says

    Well.. isnt there any short-cut activation for small 2g data plans like ones for vodafone? Like *444*16# for 3 day pack n so on? that would be of immense help..

  38. somasekhar reddy says

  39. Nilesh Padia says

    While i tried to recharge for Balance/Data and SMS Packs online on my mobile (android plateform), everything was working fine upto selection of amount under anytype of recharge. But as soon as submitting query for recharge option, it threw me out to to the log out page and ask to log in again though i have already logged in.

    This is a severe problem… nobody can recharge the BSNL mobile using its own mobile. Amazing but True Govt. attitude of website….

  51. chandan says

    Hi
    I had some 70 MB data usage left in my BSNL SIM also validity end was more than 15 days. In order to get extra topup for data I recharged for 98. But BSNL recharged my Voice account, which means my data was not topped up instead my main balance increased.
    What to do? and also if nothing can be done when can i do the 98 top up only for topping up the data?

  52. RN Maurya says

    The deduction of data charges from balance without any information or message after plan quota is over, is a cheating to customer.

  53. kamei says

    I recently brought 3g sim and recharge with FRC of 21, the speed was awesome… Right after that i recharge with Rs 270 (2g) and then with Rs 50 (3g) but my internet speed is still 20-25 kbps…. Pls help me out to regain 3g speed..

  55. gopinathan k says

    Mr.Anand Kumar-you are doing a great job by helping people. Most of us donot know what these
    service providers and what they are doing which includes BSNL AND MTNL also.So help from
    learned and experienced people like you are all the more welcome.As for me from a novice in
    internet and computer knowledge , I have quickly gained enough knowledge to know the difference
    in practical experience of what is claimed and what is actually provided by these providers.
    Also the means of rectification in such cases to some extent.Regards…

    • Anand Kumar says

      Dear Girijesh,

      I know my responsibility. All BSNL tariff varies by Rs +-3 from circle to circle. You may consult BSNL official site for more information. OR the best way to recharge your mobile is using BSNL recharge portal. Till now, they are also showing Rs 300 tariff. All data mention above is for informational purpose.

  57. Akhilesh Koreti says

    i have brought a micromax MMX3G Datacard.That speed on net is 7.2mbps.but that micromax datacard does not gives speed so much.i am using BSNL 2G Sim in My Dongle.What I do for this problem.please give me your opinion about this topic.

    • Anand Kumar says

      Hello Ahilesh,

      There is no problem with your Data card. BSNL 2G claims speed of 128-156 kbps. However there are many people who have experienced more than 256kbps. To get more speed, consider recharging with 3G data plans.

      • Dr. abdul sathar says

        There is lot of confusion regarding speed in this discussion.
        Hey people…know the difference between kbps and kBps/KBPS. see the diiference between the two.

        8kbps = 1 KBps
        so if u are getting 256kbps speed, thats equivalent to 32KBps.
        2mbps = 2048kbps = 256 KBps

        u can check ur internet speed at several sites.
        speedtest.net
        speedtest.in

    I have one doubt sir, actually when i bought a bsnl sim in nov 2011 of student plan, and in this june in order increase the validity of plan , i was supposed to recharge with rs 40 but by mistakely it was recharged with rs41 and therefore my plan change to 49/min plan but i want back that student plan , therefore i again recharged with rs40 but it didnt changed. Customer care told that once special plan is changed to general plan, it cant be changed back to special plan unless you buy another sim. What should i do now to get back that plan (without chaging my phn no.)?

    • says

      If customer care said so then probably there will be no way to revert it back. But before relying on cc at 1503 I will suggest you to visit BSNL customer center and ask.

  67. Nirmal says

    hello Sir,

  72. Debayan Das says

    Hello anand sir,

    Im going for a vacation in Chandigarh & Kashmir after 10 days …as in Kashmir only post paid connections r availble, my pops has taken a bsnl post paid connection.
    So can u suggest me which one i should consider ..2g or 3g plans for the connectivity ..& how do i recharge it, is it like prepaid connection? (sorry for this noob question, im totally new to post paid thing.)

    thanks in advance …

    • says

      There is no recharge like thing in Postpaid. You will have to pay when the bill is generated (At the end of the month). Also there is no difference in voice plans in 3G and 2G. If you need 3G GPRS speed; only then opt for 3G postpaid plans.

      • Debayan Das says

        thanks for the reply Anand sir,

        Suppose im going for 2g plans …how im going to activate a particular plan, from the list of postpaid 2g plans, bsnl provides ?

        the reason i asked about 2g or 3g iplans i should choose is beacuse …do im going to get 3g connectivity or speeds at kashmir, or its same like if i get 2g connectivity, i will get 3g conectivity too in kashmir areas. I will prefer 3g only if i get the speeds :)

        • says

          You will need to ask BSNL care at 1503 or your local BSNL Office. Since, You can’t switch you plan or activate GPRS by sms. I have no Idea about BSNL 3G coverage in J&K but yes, 2G network is really good. For better answer about this particular question consider asking in a forum.

          AND Happy journey. ;-)

          • Debayan Das says

    I have a micromax 3g data card and a 2g BSNL sim. I used to recharge Rs/-98.speed was more than 200 kbps. but now downloading speed is 20-25kbps(UTMS Mode). how can I fix the problem?

  85. Sukanta Sarkar says

    Sir, I am from Agartala, State-Tripura, Northeast-I region. I am using bsnl 3g sim from last 5 months. sir, i am using bsnl Rs.98/- gprs pack in my 3g sim and you don’t believe that downloading speed in around 350-450KBPS. But now in this month when I recharged that Rs.98/-, the speed surprisingly decreased to around 20-30KBPS. So please tell me any solution to get my speed back. Thank You.

    • says

      Hello Sukanta,

      If you are still on 3G mode and getting such worse speed then it may be really bad news for you. OR switch to 3G network to get speed upto 160kbps (But not 3G speed). It seems BSNL has fixed the loophole.

      • VINAY says

    Regards

    • says

      Hi Vishal,

      The plan seems nice. If you have good BSNL coverage then you may enjoy services OR if EVDO service is good in your area then it will be better choice. Their is no speed cap on EVDO plan.

    Sir,
    Which sim operator is best for just surfing in good speed which does not take much time to load?
    Is 98 or 300 rs plan net-surfing speed is good on bsnl?

    • says

      Search your local market for best available offers in 3G. There may be plenty of offers which may offer good speed at low price specially with FRC (First recharge on a new sim).

      Or You may try BSNL 2G GPRS tariffs. Choose the low cost one and check the speed on your location. There will be no change in speed if you choose any 2G plan. Similarly, all 3g plans will have same speed.

  93. Anil says

    i have port my operator from airtel to bsnl because of the disastrous speed of airtel mobile office..
    i am very happy with bsnl net speed…
    i have 2g sim although i get the speed of abt 400-450 KBps ie around 3.2 mbps downloding on very first day of recharge but later on the speed decreases to 30-40-50 KBps, never below 30 KBps.
    all you need to do is to switch network from GSM to WCDMA .

    Sir I live in Bikaner (Rajasthan). I usually recharge with 98 rupees (2GB data pack). I get speed around 20kbps. I want to use the 3G data packs. Do I have to change my 2G sim to 3G or I should avoid this confusion and recharge ? I think there is no need of it but you can help me so that I can fix my mind. I called Customer Care. They are saying no need to change but still I don’t believe them.

    • says

      Yes, There is no need to change or upgrade sim card. You may recharge your sim with any 3g data plan and enjoy 3G. But I will recommend 2 things.

      1. Switch your mobile to use 3G network on current 2G data plan, and check if you get better speed. You may get speed up to 150kbps and if you are really lucky then you may get more than that.
      2. If you are going to recharge with 3G data packs then recharge with minimum denomination to take a trial of 3G speed,network and coverage.

  101. Gourav says

    hello sir

    • says

      Do you have Data usage in your account? Check that with some USSD code like *123*10# (or any other code which is available particularly in your circle).

      If yes then make sure that you have enable DATA ROAMING in your data card/mobile handset. and also check for APN if it is “bsnlnet” and dialup number is *99#.

      I hope it will enable BSNL 3G plan in your data card.

      I have recharged 54 Rs data plan, a few days earlier. The best option to recharge the amount is to visit portal.bsnl.in/MobilePayments/aspxfiles/login.aspx and recharge your account by your own. If you are able to see the denomination. It means that recharge is valid for you or your circle.

  123. Atul88 says

    Now BSNL has also revised their 2G speed. Before it was giving around 30-40 KBPS
    now it only gives 15-20 KBPS. BSNL just Sucks!!!Even TATA DOCOMO!!!
    Better go with Aircel. They provide something like 1GB 3G data for 198/- and after 1GB you will get 128KBPS speed unlimited using internet for a month!!!

      Thx bro! :)

      Though it gets limited to 128 “kbps” after data usage limit. :(

      How bad is 128 “kbps” on aircel network? Will youtube streaming still work in case of my Android mobile? at 360p video streaming setting on youtube?

      Get over with that tricks.
      Even if you get speed of 3g in 2g plans, it will hardly work for 24Hrs.
      it’s a marketing gimmick used by BSNL. Nothing else!!!

  127. Gokul Burman says

    Sir,I use 2G prepaid GPRS on 8900740451. My last date of recharge was 02 May, 2012. I tried to recharge with Rs 98 at 1800 hrs on 01 May, 2012 but the server was down and shop-keepers did not accept money. I tried to do so till 2359 hrs on 02 May, 2012 hoping the situation will improve but did not. It was possible in the wee hours of 03 May, 2012. Why I want to draw your attention is THAT THERE WAS 4136 Mb balance in my account over the months, and it was my proud possession. But simply you made it zero and unk owingly I was charged from the main balance a good amount, self being a senior citizen. I want to know my FAULT. I WISH TO GET BACK MY BALANCE. SERVER FAILURE is not my headache I suppose. thanking you

    • says

      If you have recharged it via retailer then probably he/she can revert the recharge at the cost of Rs. 10. It happened to me once. But you should do hurry. And I don’t know what are the condition to revert. Better to ask the retailer. AND if you have recharged it using BSNL portal then their is a link to contact customer care. Probably they are the best people who can help you!!

    • says

      Does your Modem support hsdpa or 3.5G. Only 3.5G network offers good speed. If it is WCDMA modem. Try to get a HSDPA modem and check the speed. The APN for BSNL is “bsnlnet” check this too.

    Dear Anand,

    dear Anand,
    I sometime use bsnl 3G(without a data plan) and i observed several times that i never gets connected to net at first try… it takes 5-15 tries then only i gets connected and even when i gets connected… after some time it the speed gets down to 0kbps for a while and then it again turns to normal.. i want your advice that why is it like that..? even though i receive full signal.. is it because i am not using plan or is it something else… shall i get a 3G plan to solve this problem.. what u say?

    • says

      It’s all BSNL side fault. A tip which works for most. Use a torrent like think to download anything at low speed like 3-5KB/sec and then surf the web. You will not feel any glitch while surfing. [and yes, this is a silly thing.] Why will this work? It will works because your connection will never become ideal.

    Right now I am using an airtel 2g plan – 1 GB for Rs 98 and is getting about 1-2 Kb/s. The problem is that I am a heavy net user and the data vanishes within days. I would like to know if there are any unlimited plans in 2G.

    How much data will I get from a similar plan from BSNL ? I would also like to know about EVDO , is it availabe through SIM cards or do I have to buy the device, its speed, and is there any unlimited plans for the same???

    What is the minimum plan for BSNL 3G unlimited

    Dear Anand..
    I am 50yrs old PSU employee. I use prepaid BSNL Excel mobile service in Kolkata area. I want to buy Data Card & Data usage plan for internet surfing / downloading at home. Please advise me :
    1) Which data card should be best for my use & its Price (approx)
    2) Which data usage plan (preferably BSNL) is suitble for me..
    Waiting for your valuable advise before taking any decision on my next course of action

    • says

      Hell Sibaji,

      You may buy any HSDPA or UMTS modem which support speed at least 3.6 mbps. I would prefer to buy a Huwei or Micromax. It will work for both BSNL network 2G and 3G. The prices varies from place to place so I say exactly how much you will have to pay. Choose any modem priced between 1500 to 2500. But don’t forget to check if it supports 3G or not.

      The second thing I would like to say, Buy an unlocked modem. It will enable you to choose any network (Like BSNL, Reliance, Airtel or any other GSM network)

      You may choose any BSNL plan either 2G or 3G. As shown in the post and ask your retailer if their will be any local plan. Usage depends upon your need so for first month you may choose 2-3GB data pack and and later you may change it accordingly.

    dear anand sir, can you give me any tip on how to get most of the downloading speed for bsnl 2g. i m using evdo’s unlimited plan. i get good speed, sometimes it downloads 2.5gb in a single night, but i need to get the most out of it :P can you help plz?

    • says

      Never switch to 2G or 3G if you are satisfied with EVDO. Probably BSNL EVDO has not good service in all areas. Trick work only some time but even 3G can’t give you such speed as you said. 2G or 3G what ever you choose will be much costlier than EVDO.

      Some people get 120-160 kbps on BSNL 2G plans and a few get 300-400kbps. I don’t know what is the exact trick but after recharging your BSNL 2G you may get some better speed for a few days.
      But in my suggestion stay with EVDO. Only Broadband could be better solution for you, if you are getting such speed. You will never been satisfied with anything else.

      • sumanta kar says

        thank you sir for helping, i m satisfied with my net’s speed, i just thought if there is a way to get more speed :D, ya i read the reviews and now i think i might be the lucky one for bsnl evdo. just a problem i m having, i m having a postpaid connection, whenever i submit my bill, instead of getting higher speed it stops working for a day or two, it rejects to connect to the internet after that i get download speed of 100 kbps on avg, and overall speed of more than 1 Mbps, which fluctuates, but i don’t mind these fluctuations because its overall result shows good.

        • says

          You may tolerate the unavailability. At least I don’t think we should expect more than this from BSNL ;-). Glad to help you.

          Why not you complaint CC. The only thing I can say, If you are satisfied with the quality then it is best for you. You could get unlimited downloads only in a few hundred using EVDO. It is not possible in any other way except BSNL Broadband. But not Broadband has also caps on speed at certain limits.

      Nothing to do, Just recharge with any 3G voucher. Confirm CC or retailer before recharging. If you need a 128k sim contact BSNL’s costumer service center, I think their is no need for that as I think.

    • says

      Hello Snehit,

      It is not possible to get 3G speed on 2G network. On 2G edge (actually 2.5G) network you may get slightly better experience but of course it will be far from the speed you are expecting. It would be better to try some other network. If you are using a BSNL modem it may be open (unlocked) to use other network like reliance or others.. But It would be very costlier.

      Their are some tricks (Search Google, I have no trick :( ) or most likely private operators provide free usage to new customer, you can get benefit from them for a short time.

  178. Lilly says

    I switced from 2g internet to 3g in bsnl not getting speed. I called customer care but they logged complain nothing more then that. Any one knows what to do. I use iphone4

  179. khushmeet says

    Earlier there was problem in bsnl.. we all get 3g speed in all 2g plans.. but now bsnl rectified the error,,
    now speed in 2g plans limited to only 20KB/S.. you get 3g speed only in 3g plans or take no plan and use as it is.. when i purchased datacard i got upto 300kB/S speed in 98rs plan.. but now it only 20KB

    • Ambrish kumar Tiwari says

      You are absolutely right…..whoever is saying,he is getting more than 20-25 kbps downloading speed in 2G plans…..all are just fraud…..initialy when I started I got the ultimate speed of generally 300-500kbps….but nw a days….I am also getting download speed of max 25 kbps…..and it is absolutely true….whatever but I’ll say still BSNL is best than all other service providers….the 20-25 kbps is still better than speed of others….

      • Pornstar says

        Cant you see people…bsnl is making u fool…actual speed is 18..
        3.2 mbps divided by 8 you will get around 400kbps….100kbps8 = 12kbps….!

      Sorry Shyam, I am not the right guy for this question. If you are on 3G network and still getting such speed, I will suggest you to search some other blog who provides tips, tricks or hacks. I am unable to share any such information, right now.

      Well, I can share my download speed on various network (Band) of BSNL. I have tested my current speed at UMTS mode which is around 120kbps, on EDGE it was jut 30 kbps, (I am using 2G plan). Search other blogs or forum for help, I am really sorry about that!

        Dear Anand,

        your information is very knolegious, I am using Motorola Rokr E6 handset(2007 model EDGE technology) for 2G data access from BSNL network, But there is very slow speed 10-20 Kbps.now a days there is various advance technology models available in india like Nokia C3-01, Sir, is the downloading speed is depending on handset model, if yes, please suggest handset model for getting higest 2G/3G data access.

          Dear Sunil,

          Of course downloading speed depends on Mobile Handsets, including other factors too. I will suggest you to buy 3.5G (HSPA) handsets which which may support upto 10.2mbps, whereas most popular models support upto 7.2 mbps. I can’t suggest you specific models since their are a lots of models available in all major brands, which may suit your need, also i do not know your choice like company, type of phone you like (bar type, slide …) and many more factors. The cheapest model in this category may be Nokia-C5, it supports upto 10.2mbps downloading speed.

          One more thing Don’t confuse with maximum downloading speed the only thing you need for faster browsing experience. It also depends on uploading speed. Check this factor too in your future mobile.

    • ajay baidya says

      there is no any solution with BSNL, 2g’s 98 plan & 3g’s 275 has same 160~250kb/s so BSNL is FRAUD.

      • satya says

        yes u r write…….250 kbps means 20 KBPS that is very slow ………..if their is 512 kbps then it would be fair speed
