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

  • The Delhi high court had modified its single judge’s interim orders and questioned the maintainability of the suit filed by Jio alleging that Airtel’s advertisement was “deceptive and misleading”

As part of Rs 219 plan, Airtel is offering unlimited local and STD calling, 100 SMS per day and nearly 40GB data. 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. The plan comes with validity of one month.

According to a report on telecom talk, the plan also offers 1GB 3G data, which is valid throughout the plan validity of 28 days.

The price vs data war is surely getting intense, and incumbent telecom operators are trying everything to compete with Reliance Jio. Right after the activation of this STV, the default BSNL Signature tune will be activated on free of cost.

Reliance Jio, the telecom company led by Mukesh Ambani, has three prepaid recharge plans priced under Rs 100. BSNL is also offering 128Kbps of data speed.

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has announced the launch of a new prepaid plan to counter Reliance Jio's Rs 98 plan. Voice calls are unlimited and 70 SMS are offered. 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.

Following the suit, Idea started rolling a similar prepaid plan for Rs. 109. There is free roaming and national calls available in the pack alongside 300 national SMS in home and roaming. It indeed makes sense for the operator as most of the prepaid subscribers on the unlimited packs aren't able to cross their daily data limits, while the subscribers using other packs often exceed the given quota and thus buy new top-ups to meet their usage. And after cross the calling threshold, users will be charged at 1 paisa per second for calls.

Taking on BSNL and Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel has now started offering a "truly unlimited" data experience on its prepaid packs starting at Rs. 199. The catch is that the plan is limited to only a few circles now.
