BSNL Revises ₹525 and ₹725 Postpaid Plans with Double Data Benefit
The state-run telecom company has revised its popular ₹525 and ₹725 postpaid offerings by allotting more data. With this revision, the BSNL is all set to compete with private telecom companies.
Earlier, the BSNL ₹525 Postpaid Plan offered 15GB of data. Now, the company has revamped its plan to offer 40GB of data. Similarly, the BSNL ₹725 Postpaid plan comes with 70GB data benefit. Though there’s a big change in the data offering, the BSNL is yet to implement “data carry forward” facility in its postpaid plans.
BSNL Rises Data Benefit with No Rollover Facility:
Surprisingly, the BSNL Kolkata Circle is the only area where one gets to see data rollover facility. Don’t know whether the BSNL has any plans to implement this data roll-over facility across India.
Most of the reputed private telecom companies are offering the data carry forward functionality. In reality, it is a marketing gimmick where the data benefit just gets accumulated for the months. Moreover, this whopping data is just used by the youngsters and the adults just pile it up.
If you happen to observe BSNL 525 and BSNL 725 postpaid plans, one can easily understand that these plans are perfectly placed between ₹399 and ₹799 that offer 30GB and 60GB of data respectively.
Amazon Prime Subscription:
Apart from data benefit, the BSNL also offers unlimited voice calling without any FUP limitations. Provision of 100 SMS per day is a welcome change. The other surprising change in BSNL offering is the inclusion of 1-year Amazon Prime Subscription worth ₹999.
Though BSNL - Amazon partnership is last on the cards, the telecom company has proved that it can compete with the private telecom companies. The top operators including Vodafone Idea and Bharti Airtel are offering a whopping 75GB of data with ₹499 plan.
The other benefits are more are less the same with respect to the competition. Some telecom companies are also offering free Netflix subscription with rentals over ₹999.
What’s Your Opinion?
In case of BSNL Prepaid segment, the telecom company now offers FREE EROS NOW subscription on selected plans including ₹333 and ₹444. Indeed, there’s a huge demand for content with the success of Reliance Jio. And thus, the telecom operators are looking for content providers to keep their subscribers happy.
Back to the postpaid segment, the Govt-owned telecom company BSNL has got a good number (about 10) of plans starting from 99 to 1525. Leaving them aside, BSNL is the only telecom company that has to offer 4G services on a PAN-India basis. Once it gets the required infrastructure, BSNL will surely be in a good situation.
