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

BSNL takes on Reliance Jio with Rs 118 plan, offers unlimited voice calls and 1GB data Jio Effect: BSNL Launched Rs.118 Prepaid Recharge Pack; Offers 1GB Data, Unlimited Voice Calls for 28 Days

The Rs 118 prepaid plan comes with the benefits of unlimited local STD and roaming voice calls and data benefit for a validity of 28 days.

To compete with Reliance Jio's pocket-friendly unlimited data plan worth Rs 98, state-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has launched its unlimited plan for Rs 118. Apart from this, the BSNL signature caller tune will automatically get activated for free post recharge of the pack. BSNL is also offering its subscribers with free PRBT tune (caller ring tones). The validity is same for all the effective circles.

In a bid to take on the cutthroat competition from Jio, Idea, and Airtel had announced their recharge plans with similar offers and prices alike.

Diego Maradona will continue his career in Belarus
Maradona, who most recently managed UAE second-division side Fujairah, will be taking over football operations. With him in charge the Brest-based team won the Super Cup and qualified for the final of Belarus' Cup.

With the above offer, BSNL is giving a whopping 180GB data. Every telecom operator has come up with voice and data packs at lucrative prices to lure subscribers.

Along with the data benefit, BSNL is also offering 1GB data for the validity period, after the given benefit is exhausted the users will be charged at standard rates. This remains unchanged from the other packs offered by the telco. There is free roaming and national calls available in the pack alongside 300 national SMS in home and roaming. Furthermore, it offers 100 local and national SMS to be used on a daily basis. Moreover, BSNL did not mention any FUP limit per day, so we can say that the voice calling is unlimited like the other BSNL prepaid plans. Reliance Jio started the prepaid tariff war back in January 2018, and the incumbent telcos are still trying to catch the new entrant. However, the new broadband plan benefits have only been launched in the Kerala circle for now. The biggest reason why Jio's plan trumps BSNL's offer is the 4G internet connection by the former and 3G browsing and downloads by the latter.
