BSNL has 75% of the Broadband Market share in India. If they Sleep Definitely India will also in Broadband Sector.

What have MTNL upgraded?

BSNL probably won't use VDSL - their copper loop lengths are too long for that, and they're already deploying FTTH (forget for a moment how "expensive" it is, they're deploying it).

They have Revised their plans some how.

Yes I agree they're concentrating on FTTH. but why they ZTE partners with BSNL to spruce up broadband connectivity in India - Economic Times

I don't think there will be any major change in speed in near future. May be it will happen when FTTH gets popular. BSNL upgraded UL 750 to 512 Kbps only 15 months back and in January they did introduced 4 Mbps FUP based UL plans (useless though). BSNL has no competitors in most of the areas of its service and private players like only those areas where they can penetrate with higher density. They completely ignore even city suburbs. Unless there is any major change in speeds that other ISPs offer, there will be probably no change in speed for BSNL plans.

Do you think BSNL is Happy in Hyderabad? Yes i agree that they revised the plans 15 Months Back but how can they live in this competitive market? I can surely tell you they no longer have their presence in Hyderabad. I don't know about other cities.
May god bless their FTTH, god knows when they'l provide at Reasonable Rates.
BSNL has Deployed Fiber in Hyderabad according to my Uncle who Works in BSNL but he also has no clue when they will revise the broadband plans. Only God knows when they'l use the fiber and provide us Some Good Broadband. a Few months back I said in the forum that some company was laying Fiber near my Area later I came to know that it was BSNL.
I am sure BSNL FTTH Wont be launched No Sooner. Will wait For Hayai.

BSNL is not much prepared for competition. But the fact remains that they have no competition in many areas. The only place where they give competitive plans are under MTNL. BSNL Metro circles offer some special discounts at times, other than that, they are not much bothered about competition. FTTH is definitely going to take some time to be available everywhere. May be then the price of normal ADSL will drop steeply. But as I said, nothing very soon.
