State-run Telco BSNL has reacted to the newly introduced Jio and Airtel data packs with its own lucrative offer. The new plan is not only a competitive offering but in a way better than what Airtel and Jio’s offer. However, the Rs. 429 plan will be applicable to all PAN-India circles except for Kerela.
BSNL’s Prepaid Rs. 429 plan stretches for 90 days offering 90 GB of data as well as unlimited voice calling to all networks. That means 1GB data every day. That translates to Rs. 4.7 per day and Rs 143 per month which is on par with costs of Jio and Airtel plans.
On the other hand, Jio and Airtel both offer 84 GB data for 84 days for Rs. 399. Also, there are caveats to the Airtel plan which we have discussed in this post. This means BSNL’s plan has a bit longer life span than its competitors.
Speaking about the plan, R.K.Mittal, Director (Consumer Mobility) BSNL board, said: “This voice and data centric plan is available for Rs. 429, that is, Rs. 143 per month which gives unlimited voice (local/STD) on any network and 90GB data (at 1GB per day) for 90 days, which is the most competitive plan in present market scenario.”
