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

Airtel offering post FUP data speed of 128Kbps

State-owned telecom operators do not have the freedom like the private ones to continue using cheap data plans, however, BSNL has prepped up to mark it's presence with a list of offers. Earlier, if the data limit was reached, the subscriber either had to wait for the clock to strike 12 AM or buy a small recharge plan. Additionally, BSNL is also offering free caller tune by default with this plan. Last week, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) came up with an unlimited voice calling pack for just Rs. 39. Apart from this, the BSNL signature caller tune will automatically get activated for free post recharge of the pack.

Now Airtel has made a decision to offer data at 128Kbps speed even after the daily limit got exhausted, like the one Jio and BSNL are offering. 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. 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.

Bharti Airtel has announced that its users will now be able to experience a "truly unlimited" data on prepaid packs starting from Rs 199.

The unlimited experience data with 128Kbps speed is only valid for the packs which offer daily data limits. Other benefits of the Rs 198 pack include free local, STD and roaming voice calls and 100 SMS per day. The "unlimited" calls are, however, limited to 250 minutes per day and 1,000 minutes per week. And of course, once the limits are exhausted, the customers will be charged at the standard rates (10 paise per minute). But now BSNL has launched the plan 118 in which the telecom operator is offering free unlimited calls. Furthermore, it offers 100 local and national SMS to be used on a daily basis. Here are the details of the BSNL new plan 118.

This new landline centric plan has been designed for those, who are heavy voice users, and need an economical solution for the same. But as reported few days back, BSNL is losing their market share at a fast speed, and previous year along around 1.5 lakh landline users ditched BSNL.

Airtel recently stated that it would be revamping its prepaid data plans to being truly unlimited by offering a speed of 128 kbps, post completion of the FUP limit. There is no further information on full-fledged launch across India.
