BSNL takes on Jio with Rs. 349 prepaid plan

Vodafone had earlier launched a recharge pack of Rs 569 offering 3GB data on a daily basis with a longer validity of 84 days.

However, after the Jio juggernaut rolled into the urban market quite successfully, the company came out with another disruptive ploy - a 4G feature phone, which was virtually free of cost, targeting predominantly rural feature-phone users. Here are five best unlimited (voice or data) plans launched by BSNL recently under Rs 350. However, BSNL still lacks 4G connectivity in many regions in India, while Jio provides only 4G services on its network. The plan also includes 100 SMS per day. The report also added, that even though the BSNL is offering unlimited voice calls, users will be charged at the standard rates while making voice calls to numbers in Mumbai and Delhi circles. Under the plan, BSNL is offering unlimited voice calls and data to its customers. That said, customers in circles of Chennai and Kolkata are offered the benefits of ₹348 plan for ₹347, with customers in Haryana getting it at ₹344. Recently Airtel has also revised its 349 prepaid recharge plan and started offering 3GB data per day. For the users who may exhaust the 3GB per day limit, Idea will charge them with 4paise/10KB usage.

Apart from the ₹349 plan, there's another plan which is priced at ₹348 that offers 2.5 GB of 3G/4G data per day for 28 days. In some circles, the Rs 348 recharge with 2.5GB data is still valid. Alongside this plan also gives unlimited voice calling for STD and Roaming too. It is now available in Assam, Mumbai, Gujarat, Karnataka, Kerala, Rajasthan, and Uttar Pradesh West/East circles.

On one hand, Airtel's Rs 349 plan offers 3GB data per day along with free voice call and 100 SMS daily with a validity of 28 days. Vodafone also has Rs 509 pack where it offers 1.4 GB per day for 90 days and Rs 549 which gives 3.5 GB per day for 28 days. This plan was launched with the aim to help BSNL subscribers stream IPL 2018 live cricket matches on their smartphones. This pack also includes unlimited local, STD, and national roaming calls, and 100 SMS messages per day for 28 days.
