State owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) on Monday said it will increase the speed of broadband internet to a minimum of 2 Mbps from the current speed of existing 512 Kbps. The increase in internet speed will be applicable to both new and old landline subcribers, it said.

After exhausting of the free quota, the speed will revert to 512 Kbps like earlier before. All upgraded plans will come into effect from October 1 2015, BSNL CMD, Anupam Srivastava said at an official event held in Gurgaon.

The total number of broadband users were at 1.57 crore by June end, as per the latest figures released by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai). BSNL has 99 lakh broadband users on its network, and Bharti Airtel 14.7 lakh users, the data showed.

Telecom Minister, Ravi Shankar Prasad, while launching BSNL broadband initiative, reiterated that telecommunications companies have to find the solution to the call drop issues, as it has become serious concern in the past 3-4 months. He added that mobile phone companies are not doing enough to reduce call drops and must optimise their networks.

    Bsnl didn't increased minimum speed to 2Mbps just fooled everyone by increasing "MINIMUM MAXIMUM SPEED (the speed before FUP ) to 2Mbps without revising FUP limits. minimum speed is still 512.

      BSNL is an overpriced piece of . There are so many good local ISPs like ACT which offer much better speed for the price that you pay.

            FUP is only 1gb i.e. 2mbps(256kbps actually) speed for 1gb which gets exhauste in one hour after that 512kbps(56kbps) for rest of the month. BSNL is making fool of us. I am soon shifting to local "cable wala". I can't bear BSNL anymore. BSNL is using these cheap tricks to retain its customers.

                  BSNL is trying to fool the customers. Present speed is not 512 kbps. Keep showing the carrots . Waiting becomes disgusting.

                                  if minimum speed is set to b 2000kbps, where is the question of reverting to 512 kbps? why to befool the people? 1 GB will immdly and rest of the month we have to face that 512 which is also not uniform.wrong publicity is being given to this plan which amounts to cheating.not fair from a govt dept.
