  • Arup November 23, 2011 1:05 pm

    BSNL you have to launch some SMS packs for low end users like RS.13, 250 sms(local and std) for 1 month validity.
    RS.13, 250 sms is Just my example,after all some some packs for the low end users in kolkata.Please think about it.
    Whenever I am going to activate any gprs pack like 7,14 I got reply,”error not in allowed list”.I am trying since last 4 months.Is this really a temporary problem.

    Nice packs from BSNL Tamilnadu. Also good to see many tt readers from Tamilnadu commenting

  • SilSila November 18, 2011 7:01 pm

    The BSNL website has not been updated yet about these offers.

  • Zeeshan November 18, 2011 6:47 pm

    Information of all these packs are available only in the website of BSNL Tamil Nadu.

  • Zeeshan November 18, 2011 6:44 pm

    I think these packs are available only for Chennai and TN Circle. TT has committed mistake by mentioning it for all BSNL circles.

  • Sathish Kumar November 18, 2011 4:57 pm

    Am sure, currently this new sms pack is applicable only on Chennai & RoTN Circle,

    actually October month, this new sms pack was framed, recommended by Chennai & Rest of Tamilnadu Circle top executives.

    Because existing confused revised SMS pack was not good response among its customers.

    Now this new sms pack is huge response among BSNL customers in chennai & RoTN.

    Later It may be apply on rest of BSNL Circle. Its depends on BSNL Circle head and its head office.

    So Until wait and see.. you will get better than this.

  • ketan November 18, 2011 2:28 pm

    telecom talk team – is the tariff hike by bsnl applicable to new customers only or will old customers (1 year) also be charged new tariff, where ever hiked and applicable? can someone please and kindly clarify. thanks in advance.

  • Rajendra.. November 17, 2011 11:04 pm

    Only that bullshit trai made the bsnl to hike sms tarrif rates..if every user limited to 100 sms per day if bsnl continue to offer 1ps/sms then from evry user even that user is a heavy sms user bsnl gets only 1 rupee from a heavy sms user per day..as now trai increase the quota of sms per day bsnl came back to some e><tent.

  • Abhijit November 17, 2011 7:32 am

    Finally some nice move by BSNL… Otherwise there was Tariff Hike in 3G Data Plans, Voice call Rates in Past months..

    Best Part is that we can now use all SMS packs from Roaming too…

    Now Please Reduce 3G Data Pack Price also or Increase free Data usage in existing Plans..

    Now MTNL should also Provide Cheap SMS packs and should Work in Roaming too…
