Ever since Mukesh Ambani has stormed the Indian cellular market with the launch of Jio sim, every now and then, we are hearing jaw-dropping offers from other cellular players too. Among them, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has also rolled out its roadmap for 2017 by coming out with plans of unlimited calls and 4,400 Wi-Fi hot spots.
Unlimited call just at Rs. 144
With a new tariff of Rs. 144 rupees, BSNL has planned to offer unlimited local and STD calls for one month from BSNL to any other network. The plan will be valid for six months and not only that, it will also come with a 300MB data on per month basis. The plan is applicable for both prepaid and postpaid customers.
Earlier under the same franchise, two plans were rolled out at a tariff of Rs 99 and Rs 339. Plan 99 offers unlimited call from BSNL to BSNL with 300MB data, while the latter offers unlimited calling feature from BSNL to any other network with an allowance of 1GB data. However, Rs. 144 plan seems to have a cutting edge over the previous two plans.
BSNL to roll out Wi-Fi hot spots to take on competition in 4G space
BSNL Managing director and Chairman Anupam Shrivastava has also expressed the aim of installing 40,000 Wi-Fi hotspots throughout the country by the end of 2017. He told the till now success story of BSNL on installing 4,400 successfully operating Wi-Fi hotspots.
Srivastava also highlighted the presence of similar hotspot near the Mahabalipuram area of Chennai and expressed their immediate strategy to expand the existing one. With this BSNL is planning to unveil the spectrum of LTE (Long Term Evolution) across the country but in a sequential manner. Seems like, BSNL is pulling its socks up to give a cut throat completion to its rivalry Reliance Jio.
