Government-owned telco Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) is letting its landline and broadband users switch to Bharat Fiber with their existing numbers on request. As per the telco, the implementation of landline to Bharat Fiber connection is said to be introduced because of high data usage with the scheme available across India.
As per this latest scheme, landline as well as landline and broadband customers can migrate their landline number to Bharat Fiber Voice or Bharat Fiber Voice and broadband connection. Until now it was not feasible for the telco to convert landline users to FTTH with the same number. Now, BSNL has developed and implemented a new software update in their system to convert their existing landline number to fiber category. With this update, existing landline numbers can easily upgrade their number to BSNL FTTH, Kerala Telecom noted.
BSNL Fiber services provide public IP to each individual customer. Double VLAN tagging ensures security for customer data and transactions, as per the report. Moreover, customers get free landline calls all over India. BSNL also provides users with GST bills.
To convert their landline or broadband numbers to FTTH users should follow these steps:
--Submit a request asking for the transfer to BSNL customer service centre.
--Currently, the migration option is available to landline users on next-generation network (NGN) switches belonging to ZTE, UTStar and Huawei. BSNL is currently in the process of upgrading existing landline customers with old networks.
--Customers can select any of the existing Bharat Fiber (BSNL FTTH) plans of their choice at the time of application. Existing deposits of customers will be taken into account in billing automatically. The existing landline number and broadband user ID will also remain the same after conversion to BSNL FTTH.
--Customers will have to pay the initial charge for migration to FTTH for Fiber modem charges, Installation charges and Fiber modem security deposit in case for modem rental cases. In case a local cable operator or telecom infrastructure provider is providing the connection, only the installation charge will be applicable which will have to be paid to them.
