BSNL FRC 298 plan: To counter the offers given by Airtel and Jio 4G telecom operators, BSNL launches its new Rs 298 unlimited plan for its users. This move is also aimed to join more customers in BSNL network.
In the First Recharge (FRC) Rs 289 plan, BSNL offers unlimited voice calls both on STD and local calls all over any network in India with unlimited data for 56 days. The customers can access 1GB data daily after that internet speed is reduced to 80kbps. However, the company has not mentioned the FUP limit for voice calls. BSNL Rs 298 plan is valid for 56 days.
The users can subscribe to this plan in the next 180 days from August 7 until November 4, 2017. This promotional plan launched by BSNL is only applicable on the first recharge. The state owned telecom operator, BSNL is still struggling to match with Reliance Jio’s unlimited Data and calls in its new plan Rs 349 Offer and Airtel Rs 399 plan.
Airtel Rs 399 plan provides 1GB data, and unlimited voice calls at a FUP limit of 300 minutes per day and 1200 minutes a week. The offer is valid for 84 days. Jio Rs 349 plan offers 20GB data over the entire period of 56 days. That means 10GB data on first 28 days and other 10GB on the next 28 days.
