State-run telecom operator Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has joined hands with mobile handset maker Detel to offer feature phone at the price of Rs 499.
The new feature phone was announced by Telecom Minister Manoj Sinha in Jaipur.
Through this partnership, BSNL has signed an agreement with S.G Corporate Mobility Pvt. Ltd. (the parent company of Detel) for selling its mobile service to the consumers bundled with the most economical Feature Phone, the Detel D1. The offer started from 23rd December 2017 and is available across India.
Detel and BSNL, which has its footprints across India, share the common ideology of 'Connecting India'. Through this tie-up, Detel feature phone buyers would get a BSNL sim connection & the validity of the first recharge would be 365 days.
The Detel D1 would surely go a long way in providing mobile phone and mobile services to the remote rural population at a very economical rate and will help in increasing rural teledensity. BSNL is touting this initiative as 'Sabka Sath Sabka Vikas,' from our Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the telco said.
The users will get BSNL Connection at Rs. 499/ for 365 Days and customer will get Rs. 103 talk time.
The new phone comes with 1.44″ Monochrome Display, 650 mAh, Single SIM, Torch Light, Phonebook, FM Radio, Speaker, and Vibration Mode.
Meanwhile, the telco is planning to launch its 4G services in Kerala and in Odisha by next month.
According to a PTI report, BSNL is seeking another 5MHz spectrum in the 2100 MHz band, which it wants to fund by offering additional equity to its promoter, the government.
The telco also plans to have a separate brand identity for 4G services.
