that data consumption is likely to be very safe assumptions. all of these companies optimize videos using multiple algorithms for different parts of the video. so the actual data usage is much less compared to what they showcase as estimates. a movie like avengers with fast action would definitely take more data compared to a simple drama movie with long scenes. and of course animated movies would take even lesser data.
I have watched the usage on my router, netflix and prime both consume 7gb/hour and they have both stated that on their websites.

Don't let the greed best of you, 750GB is more than enough without Daily Cap.

777/1277 plans have been revised to 500 GB and 750GB Monthly... Updated on their portal..



united we bargain divided we beg!!
While I agree that 750gb is enough for most and is very good for the price, especially those who don't care about 4k or download games but 750gb is easily consumed in 15 days with netflix 4k/downloading 4k/steam so I would like to see a plan with higher data cap around 1500gb, the plan being 2000rs would be great.

4K still has a long way to go before it can be considered mainstream, esp. in tier II cities where BSNL has it's a strong user base, Not many I know stream 4K Netflix or Prime.

But Yes if 4k is your thing, 750GB will be consumed in 15-20 days. But for me, 4k isn't important maybe in 2 years from now I'll have a 4K Panel. But for now, 1080p is more than enough for streaming, As far as games, I download and play games regularly, still, my peak usage was 890GB.

I think the daily fup is a very smart tactic from the company. Bsnl is down most of the days in a month in a lot of rural areas. So, in some days you don't get to use up all the daily data and those data will remain untouched.

I don't think BSNL provides FTTH connection in rural areas that much. And ADSL is pretty reliable in my experience. Its almost impossible to breach daily FUP limits at 10 Mbps speed especially if it's like 20 GB per day.

Finally. Common sense prevails. Daily FUP is beyond stupid on so many levels on FTTH. Pleasantly surprised at the relatively quick action by BSNL. I think the fallout must have been pretty severe when they decided to go the daily FUP route.
