BSNL offers 2GB data per day with unlimited calling at Rs 339


The company offered this plan to dent the Reliance Jio Prime membership offer, where a user can get the Jio prime membership for an entire year in Rs 99 and get 1 GB Data daily, free voice call in all circle, free SMS paying Rs 303 every month. The offer is limited for 90 days. BSNL has launched a new recharge pack that provides customers 2GB of data per day at Rs 339. Though Jio offers unlimited calling to other networks also, it only offers 1GB data per day; whereas, BSNL is offering 2GB data per day.

The Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) on Thursday asked the sector regulator to re-examine Reliance Infocomm Jio Ltd.'s promotional free services offer and inform the tribunal about the outcome in two weeks.

While private telecom operators like Airtel, Idea, and Vodafone are stepping up efforts to face the looming danger from Reliance Jio, state-owned telecom company BSNL has been dormant.

Airtel's "surprise" offer is similar to what Vodafone offered late a year ago, providing 10GB of data at the price of 1GB. Airtel is as well offering free 4G data to its postpaid clients under its "Airtel Surprise" offer. Fellow players such as Vodafone and Idea Cellular had also urged the regulator to look into the validity of the offer, .

Now in a major embarrassment, TRAI was left red-faced when TDSAT pointed out loopholes in Reliance Jio offers. Even if it is not looking so good with the call offering, data is going to be a big advantage if you are happy with the data speeds offered.

Similarly, BSNL is offering 2 GB 3G data per day, which is one altogether the foremost effective among the trade.

Recently Bharti Airtel has launched the Airtel 4G services in Jammu & kashmir, and with this launch Airtel 4G services are now available in all 22 telecom circles of the country.
