BSNL (Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited), the state-owned telecommunication company has decided to fight back in the field and gain its position back, for this it has halved unlimited call rental for landlines for a period of six months.
The price has been brought down to Rs 49 per month, which used to be Rs 99. The voice plan ‘Experience LL 49’ that has been announced this Tuesday has the motive to attract customers to use more wire-line services. Such price can be afforded by everyone in the country.
The plan require customers to pay monthly charge of Rs. 49 for first six months, wherein they’ll be provided with free calls which they can make on Sundays to any network in the country along with the night plan, which is from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. After those six months, the regular plan will swoop in, where they’ll pay according to the general plan of the respective area.
