BSNL GPRS Settings

BSNL has been a pioneer in data services through mobile phone in India. They introduced their GPRS services quite early when compared to other mobile phone service providers. BSNL also has the largest network that spans even small towns and villages across the country. BSNL provides different data plans that have to be activated before you can start using their services. Lists of data plans are available for download from this link.


BSNL GPRS has restrictions on the amount of bandwidth provided and the download upload limit for a specified time. You have to choose a plan that is beneficial to you. The GPRS works even in places with low network coverage because it works on the normal 2G network and not the new 3G spectrum. It is also much more reliable than 3G but comes with restrictions in speed and limitations for downloading large files.
