The state-run telecom company Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has launched a new data STV for prepaid users priced at Rs 698. At the moment, the plan is available for recharge in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana circle.
The BSNL Rs 698 prepaid plan offers 200GB data benefit for a period of 180 days without any calling benefit. It does not have any daily data limit. The plan is valid only until November 15, 2019 and it joins the current data only packs like Rs 56, Rs 109, Rs 198 and Rs 1,498 from BSNL.
TelecomTalk reports that apart from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana circle, whether BSNL will launch this plan in other circles or not is not known.
Recently, BSNL started offering free calls to MTNL numbers across three different plans for prepaid users of Rs 429, Rs 485 and Rs 666. Prepaid users recharging with Rs 429, Rs 485 and Rs 666 on BSNL can now avail unlimited voice calling to MTNL numbers. BSNL’s network operates across 20 circles in India while MTNL offers its services in Delhi and Mumbai. Previously, BSNL’s plans didn’t include free voice calling to MTNL numbers in Delhi and Mumbai and that is what has changed now.
Earlier, BSNL extended the availability of the Rs 108 prepaid recharge plan until December 12, 2019. The plan offers unlimited voice calling benefits, 500 SMS messages and 1GB data per day for 28 days. BSNL also extended the availability of Rs 1,188 plan for another 90 days. The Rs 1,188 plan comes with a validity of 345 days and it offers 5GB of 2G/3G/4G data, unlimited voice calling to any network and 1,200 SMS messages for a year.
