BSNL takes on Reliance Jio with Rs 118 prepaid unlimited data plan

17 May 2018

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited has many plans in which the telecom operator is offering free and unlimited calling and data usage. For a Jio prepaid subscriber consuming 2 GBs of high speed data in a day during the validity period, data continues at 64 Kbps for the remaining period of the day. Except for Delhi and Mumbai telecom circles, this pack also offers unlimited voice calling on roaming networks. The new development brings 128Kbps of data speed post the FUP (Fair Usage Policy) limit. Airtel also started offering one GB data a day for 28 days with Rs. 149 recharge pack for its dedicated data users. The company is also offering free PRBT tune (caller ring tones) to its subscriber. However, BSNL's offer can be compared with RJio's Rs 98 pack which gives 2GB data in 4G network for a period of 28 days.

Airtel offers prepaid plans that came with a daily data cap. The plan also offers 300 SMS. For someone wanting both voice and data benefits, BSNL has a plan worth Rs 187 that is meant for subscribers looking for an economical monthly mobile plan.

For example, if you are using the Rs. 199 pack that presently offers 1.4GB data per day, you'll no longer need to recharge for a separate pack once you exceed the 1.4GB quota and you will receive data at a speed of 128Kbps after surpassing the daily limit. And of course, once the limits are exhausted, the customers will be charged at the standard rates (10 paise per minute). Other benefits include unlimited local, STD and roaming calls along with 100 free SMS per day for the entire validity period, according to Bharti Airtel's website - Furthermore, it offers 100 local and national SMS to be used on a daily basis. However, it is important to note that the post FUP speed is only applicable on packs that comes with daily data limits.
