BSNL to offer 2 GB data a day with unlimited calling at Rs 339: Report
NEW DELHI: State-run BSNL is going to revise its unlimited plans to counter Reliance Jio where the Rs 99 plan will be offering unlimited on-net calls and 500MB data for 28 days, according to a report by Telecom Talk.
Earlier this plan used to provide unlimited on-net calls, but only 300MB data. The Rs 339 plan will also be revamped where previously it used to offer unlimited calls to any network and 1GB of data for 28 days, and will now be offering the same unlimited calling to any network and unlimited data for 28 days with a daily data cap of 2GB.
However, the Rs 339 plan will allow users to make unlimited calls within BSNL network, but the off-net calls are limited to 25 minutes per day, and after 25 minutes, each user will be charged at 25 paise per minute, the report said.
BSNL is also offering unlimited calling and 1GB data per day for one year if they recharge within March, to counter Jio Prime memebership.
