BSNL upgrades its plans to offer more data and unlimited calling

  • Airtel offer

Such attractive plans by telecom operators are an effort to stave off Reliance Jio, which is providing 4G data at throwaway prices under its Jio Prime offers.

The biggest network of the country is no mood to give up and launched an equally exciting offer of Rs. 345 under which users will get unlimited calling and 1 GB data daily (500 MB daytime, and 500 MB night time) for 28 days. The pack offers 25 minutes of free calling to other networks and then on they will be charged 25 paise per minute. Right after Vodafone, Airtel and Idea announced their new plans to combat Reliance Jio's Prime plan, Jio has hit back with new plans of its own.

BSNL offers double the data compared to Jio. On the other hand, rival Bharti Airtel providing 30GB free data for the postpaid users up to 31st March. Most unlimited packs Idea, Airtel and Vodafone are offering are not accessible to every customer - most are left wondering if they are eligible and how to get the offer. The only drawback that is apparent is that the plan offers 3G data in contrast to ultra low-priced 4G data now on offer by Reliance Jio. ET predicts that Reliance Jio, with 100 million-plus customers at the moment, might lose half of its consumers once the free offer ends.

Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd launched its services in September previous year, offering free data and voice calls till the end of March.

"Since change regarding limiting the offer to 90 days was requested after more than a month, RJIL (Reliance Jio) did not comply with the reporting requirement.Authority is directed to examine this issue", it said. We offer best prices to our subscribers considering the present trend of Indian telecom industry.

Earlier this month, BSNL has introduced new plans for its postpaid users.
