BSNL rolls out Rs 118 prepaid plan to take on Reliance Jio

BSNL takes on Reliance Jio with Rs 118 plan, offers unlimited voice calls and 1GB data

Priced at Rs 118, the prepaid plan offers unlimited voice calls for 28 days. The Rs 98 prepaid recharge plan of Reliance Jio falls under its "most affordable plans" category while the Rs 52 and Rs 98 prepaid recharge plans are offered under Reliance Jio's "sachet packs" category. Previously, Airtel's prepaid plan was limited to just Airtel to Airtel voice calls, but the pack now includes unlimited local, STD and roaming calls to all networks. The plan carries a validity of 28 days.

It needs to be noted that, RJio does not have any 1GB data plan for a validity of 28 days. Data at high-speed is 0.15 GB per day, after which internet speed gets reduced to 64 Kbps.

The price vs data war is surely getting intense, and incumbent telecom operators are trying everything to compete with Reliance Jio.

Additionally, it seems like the new games will be influenced by Pokemon Go in several ways, such as having visible Pokemon on the map.

Other telecom companies like Airtel and Idea Cellular are also offering some similar plans of Rs 99 and Rs 109. At the moment, there are a plethora of tariff plans from top telcos even under Rs 200 offering unlimited voice calls, daily data limit per day and SMS benefit as well. The BSNL signature tune gets activated automatically for free, once the recharge is done. 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. The "unlimited" calls are, however, limited to 250 minutes per day and 1,000 minutes per week. And of course, once the limits are exhausted, the customers will be charged at the standard rates (10 paise per minute). There is free roaming and national calls available in the pack alongside 300 national SMS in home and roaming. Moreover, BSNL did not mention any FUP limit per day, so we can say that the voice calling is unlimited like the other BSNL prepaid plans. BSNL has announced this new plan to take on Reliance Jio's Rs 98 plan.

With the above offer, BSNL is giving a whopping 180GB data. However, the new broadband plan benefits have only been launched in the Kerala circle for now.
