The state-owned wired broadband service provided in India is called BSNL broadband, which stands for Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited. It has been providing this broadband service since January 2005.
The broadband service was known as Data One when the Indian government first launched it, and it was changed to BSNL in September 2007. Prepaid and postpaid plans for the broadband service are available to subscribers.
The tariff plans are the cheapest in the country, since they are state-owned. Unlimited broadband data plans are provided with a telephone connection. Homes and businesses have data plans as well. A landline telephone and a modem are also provided when subscribing to this service.
