BSNL 3G Tariffs / Plans Unleashed


Well BSNL Launched 3G Services in Chennai yesterday.

Now BSNL has announced the 3G Tariffs and plans .

The good news is that it will be available both on Prepaid and PostPaid.

You have to purchase a new 3G SIM card for Rs.300 and the website says that migration from 2G to 3G would not be possible.

We are not sure if it means just getting a new SIM card or getting a new number as well. Its most likely that it would be just the SIM.

Just in case if your wondering what kinds of speeds are possible on 3G
