Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL), the state-led telecom operator has been making a lot of consumer-centric moves lately to take on the competition from the private telecom operators. The telco has introduced a lot of new plans for its prepaid subscribers in addition to some of the STVs. BSNL has been continuing its streak of introductions of new plans and the telco does not seem to be stopping any time soon as it tries to fill in the pit of losses. However, there is one area where BSNL was lagging. While all the telcos were offering bundled premium subscriptions along with their fibre broadband plans like Netflix, ZEE5, or Amazon Prime, BSNL was nowhere near in this league. However, now BSNL has introduced a fibre broadband plan which avails a Hotstar subscription to its subscribers.
BSNL Superstar 300 Plans Details
The Superstar 300 plan is a high-speed fibre broadband plan available for a monthly rental of Rs 749. This plan will avail subscribers 300GB of data per month as the name signifies and it does so with 50 Mbps speed. The high-speed fibre broadband plan by BSNL also comes with one additional benefit, which is the main highlight of this plan. For the first time, BSNL is offering a free Hotstar subscription with this Superstar 300 plan. The subscribers will be able to the Hotstar premium subscription with this plan, thus giving them a year worth of access to premium content on Hotstar.
The main reason why BSNL has launched this plan now is because of the cricket season. For anyone who watches cricket on the phone, Hotstar is mostly the go-to place of every viewer. Especially during the season of Indian Premier League (IPL) and the ICC Cricket World Cup which is currently ongoing. To please the cricket fans and the broadband customers, BSNL has introduced this Superstar 300 plan.
