Does BSNL Rs. 99 Unlimited Calling Offer has what it takes to rival its opponents

BSNL, the state-run telecom operator, recently introduced unlimited calling offers for its prepaid offers. We have exclusively reported these plans a couple of days ago. But, the major part is we know this move was coming from BSNL for a long time.

We have earlier written an article on this BSNL free unlimited voice calling offer on how BSNL is going the change the telecom industry with its free offerings. And now, the plans are official. Having said that, these new plans are priced extremely lower than other private networks.

Ever since the introduction of Reliance Jio, BSNL has been aggressively introducing offers both in the telecom sector and broadband sector. These plans will increase the demand for the network. Speaking of the uber cheap voice calling plans, they start from Rs. 99 and are now available on a promotional basis.

There are a new Rs. 149 plan, as we have earlier demonstrated that combo plans will be the future of Indian telecom sector, this new scheme will be the first step towards BSNL’s take on the combo plans space.

Along with the Rs. 149 plan, there’s also a Rs. 339 plan which is first of its kind and offers free voice calling along with 1GB data. Now, this program matches with the Reliance Jio’s Rs. 499 plan and it is incredibly cheap as well. With the Rs. 399 plan, you can call to any number all over the country.

When compared to other private telecoms apart from Reliance Jio, this new unlimited calling is much better than them. And unlike Reliance Jio, you can call to any number with the BSNL’s free voice calling offer. For example, compare it with Airtel’s myPlan Infinity of Rs. 549, it offers much better value.

Overall, the BSNL’s unlimited calling plans don’t seem to be a gimmick. They work on every phone, whether it be a feature phone or smartphone. And, it looks like the state telecom operator is ready for any challenge thrown at it from private operators.

There is no much difference. If you have main balance only the STV will get activated if activated through self care portal or sms. If you do top you are paying the taxes.

Only BSNL is there in any disastrous situation be it J&K flood, or Chennai cyclone, or Hudhud cyclone, we are very thankful.

We are still searching all private operators during cyclone in chennai even after a week.BSNL rocks

Jio should take up with BSNL the issue of non-connectivity of calls. I am not able to call single BSNL mobile number in the last two months. BSNL is horrible service provider. In Hyderabad, its connectivity is ok day time, but after 5 pm, call drops are norm. I am surprised at the worst network has still some fans!

In Kerala Jio too problem only with BSNL because all routes to BSNL are busy. But when trying 3 to 5 times, calls to BSNL get connected and it stays without any problem.

December 20, 2016 10:59 am 10:59 AM

Calls from BSNL itself does not get connected, then how you expect call to bsnl numbers to get connected. Very funny.

December 20, 2016 1:04 pm 1:04 PM

There is no problem with BSNL to BSNL calls in Kerala, at least for those BSNL subscribers who call me on my BSNL numbers.

December 20, 2016 12:55 pm 12:55 PM

Not expectation. I shared my real experience. I am able to call any BSNL number in Kerala within 1 to 5 attempts. That’s not a problem since it’s not Jio’s fault.
