- BSNL has started offering Hotstar and Amazon Prime membership with its offers
- The telco is also offering long term discounts and daily data broadband plans
Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited, the state-led telecom operator, is the largest broadband service provider of the country. However, now that Reliance Jio GigaFiber is only days ahead of the public launch, there is a chance that a lot of subscribers of BSNL are going to migrate to the new service provider. With that being said, BSNL is still not giving up on its customers and is offering some very unique freebies with its plans to lure more and more new customers. To hold on to its subscribers and to make sure that it customers stay on its network, the telco is bundling various free services which make its plans unique. So, what are the freebies and offers which make BSNL broadband plans stand out from the rest?
Amazon Prime Offering and Cashback
For a long time, BSNL remained far away from content-based offering on its broadband plans. While other service providers like Bharti Airtel were providing an Amazon Prime Video connection via Amazon Prime membership, BSNL was not offering it. But, lately, BSNL has started offering Amazon Prime membership to its customers. As per the details issued by BSNL, the subscribers who are on a broadband plan priced at Rs 900 or more will enjoy Amazon Prime membership for an entire year, and along with this, they are also going to be eligible for a 25% cashback. Also, BSNL broadband plans below Rs 499 will come with 15% cashback, and the plans between Rs 499 and Rs 900 will ship with 20% cashback.
Complimentary Hotstar Premium Subscription
If not Amazon Prime subscription, there plans with BSNL which ship with a Hotstar subscription instead of Amazon Prime. Just like Amazon Prime Video, a Hotstar subscription will allow the subscribers to watch various movies and TV shows on their smartphone or other devices. BSNL has detailed that it will be offering a complimentary Hotstar subscription with its Superstar 300 plan which comes for Rs 749. Just like the name suggests, this plan will come with 300GB data per month.
Daily Data Broadband Plans
This is something that sets BSNL broadband plans truly apart from the other broadband plans out there. Although it is also a point which has seen certain critical comments from the users, still, BSNL remains one of the rare service providers who are offering daily data limit on their broadband plans. As such, you will easily find plans in BSNL broadband portfolio which come with 40GB per day, 55GB per day, 80GB per day and more daily data limit.
Long Term Discount
On its broadband plan offers, BSNL is also offering a long term discount. For example, if you were to subscribe to the 600GB CUL plan, then you will have to pay a monthly rental of Rs 849, but for a subscription of 12 months, you won’t be required to pay 12x of the price, instead you would only have to pay 10x of the price, i.e. Rs 8490 only. This way, on a long term annual subscription, the subscribers will be able to get two months of free service. Similarly, on paying for 19 months of service, the BSNL broadband customers will get 5 months of free service.
