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

Airtel's Rs. 93 recharge plan provides customers with "unlimited" calls, both local and STD, no extra charges on roaming networks, a total of 100 SMS messages per day, and 1GB data (4G or 3G) to be consumed in a validity period of 28 days. However, BSNL's offer can be compared with RJio's Rs 98 pack which gives 2GB data in 4G network for a period of 28 days.

Along with the data benefit, BSNL is also offering 1GB data for the validity period, after the given benefit is exhausted the users will be charged at standard rates.

Telecom operators in the country have kept on refreshing their prepaid plans since the entry of Reliance Jio to the Indian market. While voice calls on all Jio prepaid recharge plans are unlimited, data benefits and validity of these plans vary.

In a bid to take on the cutthroat competition from Jio, Idea, and Airtel had announced their recharge plans with similar offers and prices alike. After recharging with Rs 118 plan, the BSNL signature caller tune will automatically get activated for free.

From the above, it can be argued that RJio still manages to beat this BSNL offer in terms of valuation and data pack. The "unlimited" calls are, however, limited to 250 minutes per day and 1,000 minutes per week. There is free roaming and national calls available in the pack alongside 300 national SMS in home and roaming. Furthermore, it offers 100 local and national SMS to be used on a daily basis. It indeed makes sense for the operator as most of the prepaid subscribers on the unlimited packs aren't able to cross their daily data limits, while the subscribers using other packs often exceed the given quota and thus buy new top-ups to meet their usage. Now, the telco has launched yet another prepaid plan to take on Reliance Jio's Rs 98 plan.

With the above offer, BSNL is giving a whopping 180GB data. Airtel's free unlimited plan with 128 kbps starts at Rs. 199. There is no further information on full-fledged launch across India.
