[BSNL DataOne Tip] Check Data Usage or Add Extra GB to Your Broadband Plan
Today we are going to share a useful tip as well as news for BSNL broadband "DataOne" users in India. If you are using BSNL DataOne broadband connection, you might be aware of its unlimited plans which claim to provide unlimited Internet data usage for users. But did you know all these unlimited broadband plans come with FUP (Fair Usage Policy) limit?
Actually all BSNL DataOne unlimited plans allow you to browse on Internet and download data on high-speed but when you cross the FUP limit as per the plan, your Internet speed is automatically reduced. You can still browse on Internet and download files but you'll notice a huge speed drop.
Now the question comes, how to know the FUP limit of your BSNL broadband plan? Also how to check how much GB have you already used of your broadband plan so that you can manage your usage for the remaining time period?
Today in this tutorial, we are going to tell you methods to check and monitor your BSNL DataOne broadband connection usage as well as to add additional GB of data to your broadband plan if you cross your FUP limit.
Recently I was at my friend's home who was using BSNL DataOne broadband connection. His broadband plan was unlimited and the download speed was 2Mbps. When we were working on the computer, we suddenly received a message from BSNL DataOne in form of an HTML page:
Since you have exceeded the Fair Usage Limit provided as per your opted plan, you will be able to browse with the reduced speed from now on.
However, you can browse at the higher speed by appropriately adding/upgrading a VOUCHER.
The page contained a few spelling mistakes as you can notice in the above screenshot.
The page was having 2 buttons: UPGRADE and DECLINE. Since we needed high-speed, we decided to purchase more GB of data by clicking on UPGRADE button.
The UPGRADE button launched a new page containing various options to add additional data transfer quota at higher speed along with their charges details.
The available options were as following:
2 GB for Rs. 100
5 GB for Rs. 200
10 GB for Rs. 300
20 GB for Rs. 500
We selected the desired quota option and clicked on [Go] button and it showed the successful message:
Thanks for choosing speed restoration plan.
You will be charged in the next bill...
Please restart your modem to browse with higher speed as per your plan.
When we restarted the modem, the broadband plan speed was restored to original high-speed.
Luckily we bookmarked the link and now we are going to share the link for your convenience. You can use this link to check your BSNL DataOne broadband plan usage and to purchase additional data quota if required.
Alternative Link 3 (Kolkata and Assam)
Alternative Link 4 (Kerala)
Alternative Link 5 (Bangalore)
Alternative Link 6 (Gujarat)
Alternative Link 7 (Chennai)
The page contains a hyperlink "[Add Bytes]" to add additional GB of data if required.
That's a nice initiative by BSNL and it'll help DataOne users in monitoring their data usage and purchasing additional GB of data online without going to telephone exchange or other government department offices...
