State-run telecom operator BSNL has been introducing a slew of prepaid plans and revising its existing tariff plans to compete with the other rival operators. To celebrate the festival of Ramzan, the operator announced a prepaid plan priced at Rs. 786 offering long-term benefits for a validity of 150 days.
This prepaid plan from BSNL offers 2GB of data per day but remember that it is 3G data. Eventually, the overall data benefit is 300GB for a period of 150 days. The plan comes with unlimited voice calling benefits and 100 free SMS per day too. The plan is available for 15 days and you can avail it before June 26.
This pack from BSNL is not applicable for all users. The benefits of this plan is not available for users in Mumbai and Delhi circles.
BSNL FIFA plan
In addition to the Ramzan 2018 pack, the telecom operator also introduced a FIFA special prepaid plan for the football enthusiasts to watch the World Cup 2018 without any data concerns. This FIFA BSNL plan is priced at Rs. 149 and offers 4GB data per day for 28 days. The downside is that this plan does not offer additional benefits such as voice calling or SMS benefits.
While announcing the FIFA prepaid pack, the company offered a validity of 31 days from June 14 to July 15. However, it was reportedly revised to have a validity of 28 days only.
Competes with Jio
The Rs. 786 plan from BSNL competes with the Rs. 1,999 prepaid plan from Reliance Jio. This Jio plan offers 125GB of data, 100 SMS per day and unlimited voice calls for a validity of 180 days. What's more is that this Jio plan provides free and unlimited access to the Jio suite of apps. In comparison, the BSNL plan is much better as it offers more data (300GB data) for a lesser validity of 150 days at a relatively lesser cost as well. However, the notable difference is that the Jio plan offers 4G data while BSNL offers 3G data.
