BSNL introduces Rs 118 prepaid plan to counter Jio, Airtel and Idea

BSNL introduces Rs 118 prepaid plan to counter Jio, Airtel and Idea”

In March, Airtel brought its Rs. 995 pack to that was the first prepaid pack to offer the truly unlimited experience for voice calls. 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.

BSNL (Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited) in the war tariff has once again launched a new prepaid plan of Rs 118.

An Airtel customer care executive confirmed Gadgets 360 that the unlimited experience with 128Kbps speed is only valid for the packs that have daily data limits.

It needs to be noted that, RJio does not have any 1GB data plan for a validity of 28 days. The new development brings 128Kbps of data speed post the FUP (Fair Usage Policy) limit.

The competition in the Indian telecom market is getting more intense as incumbents are in no mood to rest while offering attractive bundles at compelling prices. BSNL is offering 1GB of data and unlimited voice calls with its new Rs 118 plan. The introduction of this pack is a fine-drawn attempt to take on Reliance Jio's Rs. 98 recharge pack that provides nearly similar incentives.

BSNL's offer also comes with limitations in select circles, and it only offers half the amount of data that Jio does at Rs 20 lesser price. Right after the activation of this STV, the default BSNL Signature tune will be activated on free of cost.

The pack also comes loaded with 1GB of data. Voice calls are unlimited and 70 SMS are offered. It also offers on free roaming calls but excluding Mumbai and Delhi telecom circles. Voice calls are unlimited and 300 SMS are offered. And after cross the calling threshold, users will be charged at 1 paisa per second for calls.

Reliance Jio's three prepaid recharge plans under Rs 100 are priced at Rs 19, Rs 52 and Rs 98.

With the above offer, BSNL is giving a whopping 180GB data. There is no further information on full-fledged launch across India.
