BSNL has recently launched a new prepaid plan priced at Rs 439, offering extended validity to its users.
With a duration of 90 days, this plan allows users to enjoy unlimited voice calling and includes 300 free SMS.
However, data benefits are not included in this particular plan. Let’s take a closer look at BSNL’s Rs 439 plan and compare it with similar plans offered by other telecom operators.
Airtel’s Rs 455 Plan
In comparison to BSNL’s plan, Airtel’s Rs 455 prepaid plan provides a validity of 84 days.
Along with unlimited voice calling and 900 free SMS, users also receive 6GB of high-speed data.
Additionally, the plan offers benefits like the Apollo 24|7 Circle subscription with OTT benefits, free Hello Tunes, and access to Wynk Music.
Jio’s Rs 479 Plan
Jio’s Rs 479 prepaid recharge plan offers a shorter validity of 56 days but provides a significant data allowance of 84GB.
Users can enjoy unlimited voice calling, 100 free SMS per day, and access to Jio TV, JioCinema, and other Jio services.
Vi’s Rs 475 prepaid plan offers users 4GB of high-speed data per day for 28 days, along with an additional 5GB of data.
The plan includes 100 free SMS and comes with additional benefits such as Binge All Night, Weekend Data Rollover, Vi Movies & TV VIP access, and up to 2GB of backup data per month.
Although BSNL’s plan falls slightly behind its competitors in terms of data benefits, it is well-suited for users seeking long validity and who primarily rely on SMS for communication.
It is worth noting that BSNL, the government-owned telecom company, is preparing to launch 4G services after facing financial challenges in recent years.
With a package of over Rs 89,000 crore from the central government, BSNL aims to compete with private telecom companies and revitalize its subscriber base.
