India’s state owned telecom operator, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has recently launched its fibre to the home broadband service in Pune.
The service is available at different speed including 20 Mbps, 50 Mbps and 100 Mbps. The pricing of FTTH broadband service from BSNL is $ 526 for 20 Mbps speed, $950 for 50 Mbps and $ 1700 for 100 Mbps speed with no download limit.
Like other Asian Pacific countries, the government of India has been aiming to deploy a nationwide fibre optic high speed network. However, the high cost is making fibre to the home service remains out of the reach for many of the households in India.
