Why can't BSNL fellows post this info on their web-site and put all doubts to rest. Everyone is living in anxiety just b'coz those incompetent morons are keeping their customers in dark.

Only way to know for sure is wait for your next bill 8-POr keep calling and pestering them with suggestions till they impliment them...eg: Automatically "track" (ignore) downloads between 2am and 8am (just shutdown the metering software during NU usage time), or keep tracking/logging it, just stop/start at 2am and 8am so you get a clean record entry at 2AM and at 8AM in the usage logsbah, if they dont improve and airtel starts offering 512kbps unlimited, IM OFF TO MY NEAREST AIRTEL OFFICE ! hehe

hi,@padmavathi, if you are lucky that extra time will be within bsnl's 8:00. so no billing then. still people are unclear whether the free usage s existing or not. Bsnl never told that they lifted it. anyway hope for the best.

C'mon! There are no issues relating to whether there is free usage or not. Free usage is definitely there from 2 am to 8 am for all home users other than HOME 250.

The point of concern is how they would charge if someone downloads whole night and overshoots the free time limit by some time, like 10 minutes in my case.


I transferred about 700 MB from 2:40 am to 8:10 am. So will they charge me for all those 700 odd MBs now(which is about Rs 840)? Or they will take an average and charge me for those 10 extra minutes only?


Someone please confirm. If they charge me for all those 700 MBs, then I am sure this will be the end of broadband experience at my place. :(
