The Reliance Jio back-to-back offers have deeply affected the Indian Telco business and that’s why number of new STVs are getting introduced into market every other day by different Telecom companies. Following the trend, BSNL the State owned Telco has introduced a new offer today which will directly compete with the Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan offer. The new STV pack introduced by BSNL today will cost the users Rs.444 and this pre-paid pack will provide the users with 360GB data for 3 months.
This new data pack will provide the users 4GB data every single day and that’s how making the duration of 90 days. Users interested to purchase this plan can directly visit the official website of BSNL and can click on the STV section to avail the benefit. Here one thing must be mentioned that the STV section mentions the duration of STVs as 2 months, but it’s confirmed by NDTV that the BSNL customer care sources confirm the duration to be 90 days.
Conversely, if you compare the data charge rate of BSNL with Reliance Jio is much higher. While Jio offers around Rs.11 per 1GB data with 309 pack and Rs.9 with 509 pack, BSNL offers it just for Rs. 1.23 per GB. Of course, there is some limitations as BSNL has no 4G network support and hence this pack is applicable only to 3G data. So users will enjoy comparative little slow data penetration with BSNL data plan.
But one thing worth mentioning here, the new BSNL STV will be data only plan and there will be no call benefits to users. But Reliance with all it’s plans used to provide unlimited free calls with data packs. Mentioning the cause of introducing this new STV, BSNL’s Director for Consumer Mobility RK Mittal said, “We are committed to provide affordable and efficient services to all segments of our mobile customers. We offer best prices to our customers considering present trend of Indian telecom industry.”
