In the recent past, BSNL has done a great deal to change how we rate its customer service. A lot of us still use BSNL’s broadband service Dataone due to the competitive data plans at lesser prices. BSNL has just announced a way to Check Broadband Usage via SMS and also set alerts to get informed when monthly limit is reached.
This is a great new service as a lot of times the online portal is unavailable due to excessive traffic. In such scenarios the SMS service will come to rescue. Also, once you register for the alert you don’t have to check regularly whether your BSNL broadband usage has been exceeded or not.

How to Check Broadband Usage via SMS:
Type SMS BBU <space> <STD Code><Landline number>
for example, if your STD code is 012 and phone number is 2342342 then you must send BBU 0122342342 as an SMS to the following number:
- To 52295 from BSNL mobile
- To 9448077777 from other mobile
The service itself is free of cost but you may be charged at normal SMS rates unless you have an SMS pack active on your account.
How to Set SMS Alert when BSNL Broadband Usage Limit is crossed:
Type SMS REG <space> <STD Code><Landline number>
for example, REG 0122342342 and send it to the same numbers specified above.
The registration needs to be done only once.
This service works in almost all the states. When we last tested the number for other mobiles was not working but the BSNL number worked just fine.
