When most of the Telecom giants are busy providing low fares for 4G connections taking 3G irrelevant nowadays, government’s very own Telecom body has come up with an extraordinary idea and offer. The leading Telecom platform BSNL is providing unlimited 3G data for Rs. 1,099 and that too without any Fair Usage Plan (FUP).
The best and most attractive part of the offer is it does not have any FUP which mainly comes as a challenge for the subscribers. They can now use data in an unlimited manner, without any hurdle and also neither complaining regarding slow data connection. The company also admits providing superb network, wherever one heads. Consuming data will not be a problem as it has been relatively sidelined from the terms and norms. In fact, in few cases or existing plans, data usage have been doubled so that subscribers do not face any problem in near future, and most importantly stick to the same plan from BSNL.
Lately, the company experienced a downfall in subscriptions due to poor connectivity as well as slow networking process. Most of them switched over to other enterprises such as Reliance Jio, Vodafone 4G, and so on which are already providing superb data connection at reasonable prices along with amazing offers, hand-to-hand. In the midst of such tough competitive market, BSNL introduced unlimited 3G connection at Rs. 1,099. The offer starts from today i.e. August 25, 2016.
It has attracted as many as 20,000 customers since April, a third time in a row, so as to add most number of subscribers in the company. The following statement distributed from telecom regulatory body TRAI. Also, to give appropriate competition to its contemporaries like Airtel, Aircel, Vodafone, etc. it has slashed down its package rates up to 67% along with doubling the surfing/browsing usage in Rs. 549 data plan for 3G services with a capacity of 10 GB in comparison to its existing pack of 5GB. The respective plan has a validity for 30 days.
