BSNL must launch a free Broadband where they must provide 500 MB for all 35 million landline connections. They must not show advertisements in that. People can buy modems and use broadband. If 500 MB runs out, there must be two options. One, the connection must automatically disconnect until next month or, Two, they can choose to pay Rs.0.9 per MB. At present BSNL charges Rs.130 as rental. I think this is certainly possible. If it is not possible for them to give 500 MB, they can give 300 MB or 400 MB. Thats enough. If that is also not possible, they can give 500 or 400 or 300 MB only in night and no broadband can be used in daytime.This will certainly help increasing Internet penetration.The government must also consider a special fund similar to ADC (access deficit charge) and it must be collected from all cell phone users and can be given to BSNL and BSNL can provide such a subsidised service!!Cell phone users/companies are good targets from whom we can charge some 2.5 or 5 percent of the total revenue as a fund similer to ADC and fund this project.Please everybody sign this saying that the government must introduce this.

Well if they do, Their income is gonna go down all the way and also draining out their bandwidth backbones.. And speaking of backbones who supports BSNL,cogent or level 2?And I don't think you can get this in reality qwerty.. Good luck anyway. I'm not into this. I personally don't think it's gonna happen.. that too without ads..and they've to lay the cables to your home just for the free connection you're gonna get? lol Think about it.

They need not lay wires because it is given free only to existing customers. New customers must pay the regular Rs.180 rental. 500 MB of bandwidth is dead cheap. With ADC type fund, they can and must

Charging for extra data is completely stupid if u ask me..Instead what they should do is,turn the speed down.for eg: A h500 user reached his limits,until he reach the limit he will get 2M full,when the limit is crossed,the speed should go down to say 256k.These kind of system is used in many countries.. eg Australia
