Also, BSNL is all set to introduce its Dhil Khol Ke Bol STV349, Triple Ace STV333 and Nehle per Dehla STV385.
If the information hovering on the internet is to be believed, the State-owned telecom operator - BSNL - is all set launch three new combo plans to take on other private telecom operators. Further, the company is also said to have revised its STV339 plan and now offers 3GB/day instead of the previous 2GB per day of mobile data. However, Digit reports that the official website of BSNL still doesn’t reveal anything of this sort.
Coming back to the upcoming three plans, BSNL is all set to introduce its Dhil Khol Ke Bol STV349, Triple Ace STV333 and Nehle per Dehla STV385.
The Dhil Khol Ke Bol plan costing Rs 349 will give you unlimited Local+STD calls in the home circle and 2GB data for 28 days. Whereas the Triple Ace offer costing Rs 333 will give you 3GB mobile data per day for 90 days which when compared to Jio’s Dhan Dhana Dhan offer and other offers from Airtel, Vodafone etc., offers much more internet but loses out on call benefits.
Lastly, there is Nehle per Dehla costing Rs 385 will give you 2GB of mobile data per day along with free 3000 minutes for BSNL to BSNL calls and 180 minutes of off-the-internet calls per month (post which 20p/minute) with a validity of 71 days.
Moreover, all the above-mentioned offers will bring down the internet speed to 80 Kbps once you have exhausted the daily limit of mobile data.
With these offers, BSNL surely looks to take on Reliance Jio but we are not sure how well these offers will work in practical terms as BSNL is not the best when it comes to connectivity and internet speeds while Reliance Jio has probably the best connectivity in India, at the moment.
BSNL's new offers look interesting but are they worth your money?
