Taking on Reliance JioFiber, BSNL has launched 10 triple play broadband plans. The state-run telco has partnered with Sri Devi Television (SDV) to offer users with triple-play plans. These plans offer users with cable TV, broadband and landline service. And while BSNL will offer landline and broadband, the cable TV service will be offered by SDV.
All the triple play plans are launched under BSNL Bharat Fibre broadband plans, but users can choose from non-Bharat Fibre plans too. Users who want cable TV, will need to pay Rs 243 extra (non-Bharat Fiber plans). Here is a look at the BSNL triple play broadband plans.
