Days after offering up to Rs 4,575 cashback on select postpaid plans, BSNL has now changed the benefits of a few of its data-centric STVs and is providing more data in an attempt to tackle competition from other operators.
Starting today, BSNL will be offering more data with Rs 35 and Rs 53 data vouchers. To start things, the Rs 35 STV data voucher which previously offered only 200MB of data will now provide users with 5GB of data for up to 5 days. The state-run operator is now giving its prepaid users a chance to avail 25 times the data it used to provide for the same duration of 5 days, with no change in validity, reports TelecomTalk.
BSNL has also added more data to the Rs 53 data voucher which now offers a total of 8GB data for 7 days. Prior to this, BSNL was offering its users only 250MB data with an STV recharge of Rs 53. However, there’s a catch to recharging with this voucher as BSNL has shortened the validity of the pack from 21 days to just seven.
The state-run operator has also revised the benefits offered in the STV 395 prepaid plan. Prior to this revision, BSNL offered its users unlimited high-speed data up to 2GB per day post which the speed would drop down to 80 Kbps for up to 71 days. This stays the same but the operator has changed the call benefits of the pack with unlimited calling for the course of the validity instead of capping of 1800 minutes off-net calling and 3000 minutes on net calling.
Earlier this month, BSNL also started offering a free Eros Now subscription with Rs 78, Rs 98, Rd 298, Rs 333 and Rs 444 prepaid plans to allow users to enjoy unlimited movies and Eros Now exclusive web originals.
BSNL also started offering Hotspot Vouchers and coupons for accessing any of its WiFi hotspots in the country. BSNL is distributing recharge plans for prices of Rs 19, Rs 39, Rs 59 and Rs 69 for accessing its several hotspots across the country. Besides that, the operator has also lined up a total of 17 Coupons for accessing BSNL WiFi SSID.
