BSNL's Rs 118 prepaid plan is no match for Reliance Jio's 98 bundle

The plan comes with validity of one month.

Until now, Reliance Jio was also offering the 128 kbps of speed and the company recently reduced its speed from 128Kbps to 64Kbps for its prepaid subscribers exceeding the unlimited data limits. The introduction of this pack is a fine-drawn attempt to take on Reliance Jio's Rs. 98 recharge pack that provides nearly similar incentives. However, Jio is also offering 300 SMS as well, which is an added advantage. The plan also includes free BSNL Signature caller tune activated on the number by default. Airtel users who take the Rs 219 recharge pack can set an available song as the caller tune via Wynk Music without any cost, in addition to requesting Hello Tune via song codes. The validity is same for all the effective circles. There is a FUP limit of daily data at 1.4GB per day at 3G/4G speed.

Reliance Jio, the telecom company led by Mukesh Ambani, has three prepaid recharge plans priced under Rs 100. This means that if you've recharged your prepaid account with a data-only pack or a usual unlimited pack that offers a certain amount of data on a monthly basis, you will be charged for each KB consumed post the given data limit. This plan was aimed at the audience with more calling needs than data consumption requirements. The plan comes with the validity of 28 days and the users have the daily FUP limit of 2GB. In March, Airtel brought its Rs. 995 pack to that was the first prepaid pack to offer the truly unlimited experience for voice calls. Voice calls are unlimited and 70 SMS are offered. This remains unchanged from the other packs offered by the telco. This prepaid pack offers "unlimited" calls, both local and STD, free calls on roaming along with a data of 1GB (4G/ 3G). Now, the state-run telecom operator has a new plan to take on Reliance Jio and others. The catch is that the plan is limited to only a few circles now.
