Is it possible to get two BSNL FTTH connections for the same address?

I already have a bsnl ftth connection. I always cross the fup limit in the middle of the month and get restricted to 2mbps. So, I'm thinking of applying for an additional connection.

My question is, is it possible to do so? Does BSNL offer multiple connections for home use?

Not really. I'm currently on a 1999 plan which offers 1500gb/month@200mbps. There aren't any other plans that offer this good value.

Interesting, yeah that's a good plan if you to use that much data. I don't see that plan on the main BSNL site, is it some special plan? I did see it in BSNL TN site -- Source


Which BSNL circle are you from?

To answer your question, I don't see why not, if they give you trouble you could apply it in a family member's name. You anyway wouldn't need the ONT or any additional equipment, just would need to manually change the credentials once you exhaust the high speed limit of your first connection.

On second thought, if you have a customisable router which runs on OpenWRT or something, you could even automate rotating the creds every other day so that the usage gets split into both the connections automatically.

Yeah, I'm from Tamil Nadu. Tirunelveli to be exact.
So, it is possible to apply for multiple connections. Cool. Just wanted to check. Thanks.

And regarding the router(ONU), no, mine is definitely not customizable.

^ I wasn't referring to the ONU itself, but your WiFi router. If you get a OpenWRT capable WiFi router, you could just setup the ONU in bridge mode and handle the PPPoE auth on the OpenWRT device in which case you could just have a basic script which rotates the creds every night and re-connect.

^ That makes sense. Mine is Netgear R7000. Pretty sure, it does support OpenWrt firmware I guess. I'll check it out. Thanks! :)

Yes, I have 2 FTTH connections to the same address. Both are 150 Mbps upto 1.5 TB so won't have a problem with lame 2 Mbps post FUP speeds. I didn't face any problem. Just had to fill out the application again. BSNL would be stupid to turn down additional revenue from existing customers by denying second FTTH connection. Fiber power signal is good for me so the vendor has put a 5 way fiber splitter so I can always apply and get additional connections in the future if required.

Haha. Why not? You can even have 5 Connections if you can pay for them on time. :)

I had multiple connections myself from Airtel for work.
