- The STV 47 has now got a data offering along with calling benefits
- The STV 198 will now come with 108GB total data instead of 42GB total data benefit
Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has been making significant moves in the market lately since the telco seems to be surrounded by troubles from all sides. As a method to increase the attractiveness of its plans, the telco is revising its STVs, prepaid recharges and introducing new plans and offers continuously. Along with that, to cut its losses, the telecom operator has been withdrawing a lot of its STVs too. Thanks to these consumer-centric moves, BSNL has been on the rise again albeit slowly. On similar lines, we have come to know about the rationalisation of previous STV plans by BSNL. Just a couple of days ago we reported the removal of five prepaid STVs from BSNL, and now, it has revised two popular STVs with better data benefit. And the STVs in question are STV 47 and STV 198.
Revision of BSNL STV 47 and STV 198
There are two STVs which BSNL has revised in its latest move, and the first of them is the STV 47. This STV used to offer unlimited local and STD calling to all circles except Mumbai and Delhi. This plan used to come with a validity of 11 days. BSNL has done an impressive update to this plan and made it attractive for its prepaid users. In the revised plan, BSNL is offering the same unlimited local and STD calling to the users, but along with this, the prepaid subscribers will also get 1GB data for the entire validity period. Also, the validity of this plan has been cut short by two days, and now the STV is valid for nine days.
The next STV which has been rationalised by the state-led telecom operator is the STV 198. Until now, this STV by BSNL used to provide 1.5GB data per day along with PRBT with an after FUP speed of 40 Kbps. The validity of this plan was 28 days. However, now BSNL has done a massive change to this plan as the telco has directly doubled the validity of this STV to provide 54 days of service instead of 28 days. Also, the data offering has been increased to 2GB per day. This means that the Rs 198 STV which used to offer 42GB total data in the validity period, will now be providing 108GB data to the subscribers.
BSNL Offer Providing 2.21GB Daily Additional Data Extended
In another consumer-centric move, BSNL’s offer which avails 2.21GB of additional data per day to the users has also been extended. The offer was scheduled to end on April 31, but BSNL announced that it would be extending the offer till June 30, 2019. Under this plan, select STVs like Rs 186 plan which used to offer 1GB will now offer 3.21GB data per day. Similarly, other plans which offer 1.5GB data per day will offer 3.71GB per day, and plans with 2GB daily data limit will offer 4.21GB daily data limit.
