The company took its Twitter handle to share the new BSNL prepaid plan which will be available in all circles except North East states and Jammu & Kashmir.
As per the "Maximum" prepaid plan, BSNL users get unlimited high-speed data for 365 days and unlimited voice calling for 181 days at Rs 999. This is the latest effort by BSNL - which started its 4G services in January - to keep users from switching to Jio, Airtel, Vodafone and the likes.
The 28-day validity of the Airtel 93 rechrage represents a substantial increase over the 10-day validity that the pack came with till now. A few days after that, Airtel has updated its Rs. 93 recharge to provide customers with validity of 28 days, as well as similar voice benefits.
BSNL's "Maximum" plan offers unlimited voice calls including roaming calls and 100 SMS per day for the first 182 days. This plan offers unlimited internet access for the whole time period, however, the calling benefit is only for half of this time period (181 days). In Delhi and Mumbai circles, users will be charged at Rs 0.60 per minute.
On the data front, users can enjoy unlimited free data capped at 1GB per day. Users who recharge with Jio's Rs 4,999 recharge offer will get a total of 350GB data for 360 days along with free voice calls, 100 SMS per day and complimentary subscription of Jio apps. Beyond the limit, users will be charged 25 paise for local SMS and 35 paise for National SMS for the next 185 days.
BSNL had recently introduced another offer for prepaid subscribers, priced at Rs. 1,099.
