- Postpaid Standalone:
In this type of plan, your monthly charges would only be for your broadband usage, and your landline usage will be charged as per regular rates. So, if you do not want to disturb your regular monthly landline plan, then this is the right one for you.
- Postpaid BSNL Broadband Plans for Unlimited Use:
Are you the one who surfs a lot and downloads a lot of movies, songs, softwares, watches a lot of YouTube? If yes, then this is the perfect plan for you as the monthly broadband charges are fixed in this plan, irrespective of your broadband usage. So, you can use internet as much as you can without worrying about how much bill it would generate at the end of the month. However, there is a little catch in these plans i.e. most of them are differential plans which means you will be able to enjoy the allotted high speed only for the specific initial usage in GBs in that month and for the rest of the month, a lesser speed will be available for surfing and downloads. The speed is reset at the beginning of the month. These are the most popular bsnl broadband plans and I strongly recommend opting for them as they ensure complete peace of mind and no tension regarding our bill getting exploded with a lot of usage
- Postpaid Limited Plans:
These are usage specific plans in which there is a fixed monthly charge and a variable charge. If you do not cross the broadband usage limit in a month, your bill would be restricted to the fixed monthly charge. However, if your usage crosses the allotted limit during the month, then you will be charged the fixed monthly charge and the charge for the excess broadband usage. The speed remains constant in these plans, but these plans can sometimes be very harmful to the pocket if we do not track our usage and it goes well above the limit. Watching lot of YouTube and downloading movies is not recommended while you are on a limited plan because movies are generally very large files and it can explode your monthly bill. Hence, you need to regularly monitor your broadband usage if you are using these types of BSNL Broadband Plans.
- Prepaid Plans:
In these types of plans, you first have to purchase the vouchers. As and when you use the internet using a prepaid plan, your usage value is deducted from your balance. These BSNL Broadband Plans are very well suited for people who are on a very controlled monthly budget for using internet. The recharge vouchers are available in a lot of denominations in Rs depending upon your needs. You can also buy a voucher for extending your validity period or a one to just increase the balance. Your billing would never exceed if you are using prepaid cards.
