BSNL Dataone

Although Asianet and some other firms are providing broadband connectivity to several big towns of Kerala, Bharat Sanchar Nigam’s Dataone broadband is the one and only stable broadband connections available to the villages of Kerala.  BSNL Fiber to the Home ( FTTH ) is also available for several larger towns of Kerala.

The maximum speed provided by Dataone Broadband is 2mbps, but more often the average speeds will be about 1.5 mbps.

The things we like

  1. Ease of taking a new connection
  2. Low tariff
  3. Several plans available to choose from
  4. If you have a BSNL Landline, it very easy to get connected with dataone broadband

The things we do not like

  1. Frequent disconnections
  2. BSNL’s IP is blocked by several networks because of spam
  3. Non existent customer care
  4. Lack of technical knowledge to the BSNL employees
  5. No ADSL modem is being provided by BSNL, the customer has to get it from the market
