What is FUP?
Fair Usage Policy (FUP) is implemented by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) keeping in view the fact that a small number of customers may otherwise use an excessive amount of the network bandwidth and impairs the experience of a large majority. Hence, through this policy, ISPs including BSNL seek to address this imbalance and give all customers the opportunity to experience the network in the same way.
