The decision was taken by the government-run telecom provider in view of the positive response of customers towards the Bharat Fiber Plans. The company whose finances are ailing had launched the Bharat Fiber Plans in October last year.
The move had made it incumbent on all the government departments to choose the services from state companies but also prohibited them from opting for the services offered by other private providers.
Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited has extended the availability of its flagship Bharat Fiber Plans by another three months. The availability of the Rs 449, Rs 799, Rs 999, and Rs 1499 plans was coming to an end on January 4 this year but can now be subscribed by new users for another 90 days.

The company whose finances are ailing had launched the Bharat Fiber Plans in October last year. The launch of the Bharat Fiber plans has also helped the company narrow its subscriber loss to other competitors.
The Rs 499 Bharat Fiber plan comes with a speed of 30MBPS which gets reduced to 2MBPS after the customers have exhausted the data limit of the plan. The plan has a validity of 30 days and in addition to the high-speed internet it also provides free BSNL landline services.
