After Reliance created a stir in the telecom world with its aggressive data service tariff plans, priced as low as around Rs 50 for each GB, state-owned BSNL has made an offer of less than Re 1 per GB.
BSNL's new plan –Experience Unlimited BB 249 will start from September 9, 2016.
Under this plan, customers can download unlimited Broadband data without bothering about any data limit in GB. BSNL shall offer 2 Mbps speed under this plan.
If customers use the plan continuously in a month, they can download upto 300 GB data by paying Rs 249.
The company issued a statement in which it said, "BSNL is going to launch a very cost-effective and affordable promotional unlimited Broadband plan Experience Unlimited BB 249 from September 9, 2016.” The customer after six months will be moved to another regular plan of broadband on whatever the customer chooses.
This move by BSNL comes after Reliance announced that it will offer unlimited data and voice calls with Jio until the end of the year.
"The plan will enhance the customer experience towards wireline broadband services and attract new users to experience BSNL broadband services,” the corporation’s Chairman cum Managing Director Anupam Shrivastava said in a statement.
BSNL claimed that it is offering the lowest per GB data download cost plan under broadband services in India. Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani had said that data should be ‘affordable’ and Jio rates range from Rs 25 to Rs 50 which depends on the frequency of data use.
With BSNL’s aggressive pricing, the competition looks to do only good for the consumers.
