BSNL Upgrades its Bundled 3G Data Card Offer. Should you consider?

BSNL has decided to relaunch its bundled data card with annual data plans from 20th of this month with an upgrade. In the earlier offer which was valid from August 2013 (read BSNL Offers FREE 3G Data Card on Purchase of Yearly 3G Data Plan) a 3.6 Mbps 3G data card was on offer. Now it will be 7.2 Mbps and 14.4 Mbps at slightly higher prices.

What’s the Offer?BSNL_Data_Card_Offer3G

The offer will be available from 20 January 2014 till 90 days or till stocks last whichever is earlier. It must also be noted that the data plan voucher is implemented differently in BSNL West Zone. While customers of other zones are not allowed to carry forward unused data, West Zone customers are at luck -

  1. DPV-3299 – 30 GB (instead of 2.5GB / month) data free with validity 12 months
  2. DPV-2299 – 18 GB (instead of 1.5GB / month) data free with validity 12 months
  3. DPV-1251 – 9 GB (instead of 0.75 GB / month) data free with validity 12 months

Should you Consider?

If you are opting for DPV-1251, you may be better off buying a 3G data card (particularly the 14.4 Mbps variant) from the open market. For instance the D-Link 14.4 Mbps modem with three years warranty would come at ~Rs. 1300 at online retailers, a flat saving of Rs. 200. Plan wise choice depends on your budget and usage requirements.

    Don’t go for BSNL.
    BSNL needs the executives changed.
    people who are running BSNL doesn’t go with technology.
    Only if any other company comes with a Good plan to compete BSNL introduce a new plan.
    People are stuck with BSNL.
    I know it has more that %55 of internet market share, that’s because there is no other option.
    It time to remove those executives or privitaise BSNL..

    BSNL speeed never goes beyond 6mbps why to take 14.4mbps then?
    And now it is 3.2mbps nly even 7.2mbps modem is utter waste

    • zv January 14, 2014 5:17 pm

      may be in your town or city it doesn’t support good speeds. I am getting 9mbps sometimes even 11mbps at my place.

        BSNL is the pride of India like every other country , some time small problems can came may be with time it goes more better. See in Australia ( Telstra) or in Germany (Deutsch Telekom= or in UK ( British Telecom) and so on. i am sure BSNL will do more better and i trust our BSNL and these speeds are perfect too.

            That is true I get anywhere between 3 to 9 mbps with this new 14.4 mbps card. I unlocked it and the model New supports 21 mbps . You can’t beat this offer for the price

  • Gavin Mathos January 14, 2014 11:44 am

    BSNL should firts improve it’s 3G Network & Speed then launch Offers.

  • Tharun George January 14, 2014 11:25 am

    Huawei data cards are the best. I recently bought E3121 14.4Mbps data card for Rs 1400 with 1 year warranty.

    • vidyut January 14, 2014 8:15 pm

      i also got the same modem, full bars always on bsnl network and very few disconnections in between.

      • Tharun George January 14, 2014 9:53 pm

        I don’t like the new mobile partner. It takes too much RAM. It takes more than 30 sec to open. It auto reconnect rigorously on disconnection.

        Mobile partner 21 was the best and light weight.
