BSNL Rs 59 Prepaid Plan

BSNL's Rs 59 prepaid plan comes with a service validity of 7 days. This plan comes with 1GB of daily data and unlimited voice calling. There are no SMS benefits bundled with this plan. The daily cost of using this plan is Rs 8.43, which is quite high, considering you can get better value plans from private telecom operators if you can shell out money for a longer-duration service validity.

Regardless, these are plans that the customers of the telco who don't earn much will appreciate. These plans can also enable them to utilise their secondary BSNL SIM for a limited time, at a very reasonable cost. BSNL won't see an uptick in its average revenue per user (ARPU) with plans such as these but may add new customers and retain the existing ones because of them.

The state-run telco now needs 4G desperately to corner some of the subscriber market share its way and also improve revenues.
