BSNL Rs 186 Prepaid Voucher Makes a Comeback, STV 187 Also Launched

BSNL has reintroduced the Rs 186 prepaid voucher and the Rs 187 STV in the Chennai and Tamil Nadu circle

Highlights
  • Both of these STVs and PVs offer 28 days of validity and 2GB data per day
  • The plans come with the added benefit of Bumper Offer with additional 2.2GB daily data

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL), has been pretty active on its prepaid portfolio, making constant changes to its plans, introducing new STVs, new prepaid vouchers and more. BSNL is doing this to keep the prepaid subscribers engaged on its network while also working in the direction of BSNL 4G network as well. With this, it is also launching new attractive offers and benefits for the customers and these revised STVs and PVs come with better benefits, are oriented more towards data users. It is worth noting that a while back, BSNL had withdrawn the prepaid voucher of Rs 186. However, in a new move, the state-led telecom operator has announced that it will be reintroducing the Rs 86 prepaid voucher for its subscribers. Not only this, but the telco is also launching the STV 187. Here are all the details about these two plans, the STV 187 and the PV 186.

BSNL STV 187 Benefits and Other Details

Firstly, we are going to be talking about the launch of STV 187. The STV 187 comes with 28 days validity, and in this time period, it will offer 250 minutes of local, STD and roaming calls which would include calls to Mumbai and Delhi circle as well. There will also be unlimited data with speed being throttled down to 40 Kbps after 2GB data per day. This will be in addition to the 100SMS per day which BSNL is providing as part of this plan. Additionally, there will be free PRBT for the users of this plan. Further, the subscribers of this STV will also be able to enjoy the Bumper Offer, which will extend the daily data limit of this plan to 4.2GB, by offering additional 2.2GB of data.

It is worth noting that across a lot of its prepaid plans and STVs, BSNL has capped the limit of daily calling at 250 minutes. Although the limit is pretty generous, but it has been seen a step back by some subscribers, as no other telecom operator has a daily calling cap. Currently, this rollout of the STV and PVs has happened in the Chennai and Tamil Nadu.

BSNL Rs 186 Prepaid Voucher Benefits and Other Details

The next plan that BSNL has announced is the prepaid voucher 186. The PV 186 is going to offer very similar benefits as the STV 187, except for a few small changes and the fact that this is a prepaid voucher. While the data benefits of 2GB data per day with an after FUP speed of 40 Kbps and the 100 SMS daily SMS benefit remain the same as the above mentioned STV, the prepaid voucher will actually come with a base tariff charge which will be deducted from the user’s account on the basis of the “per minute plan.” The plan or recharge validity of this prepaid voucher is also same as above, i.e. 28 days, but the tariff validity of this prepaid voucher will be 180 days. This plan will also enjoy the benefits of the Bumper Offer, which will extend the daily data limit to 4.2GB by shipping 2.2GB extra data to the subscribers. It is worth noting that the Bumper Offer on both the STV and the prepaid voucher will be valid until October 1, 2019.

If you don’t want partiality then use Jio. One India one rate everywhere. Offers are also same for every Tom, Dick and Harry. No partiality anywhere.

What about network?

Network is almost same for every operators…some places excellent and some others worst. Use what works best for your region and don’t whine about network because no operator is giving consistent network quality everywhere.

sucks(which works better for you). Vodafone-Idea is nothing to talk about. Don’t know how Vodafone-Idea working with their integration. Even where integration is completed, there also people are complaining. This is the one area which will improve(and they can improve certainly) over the next few months. With avoids fiber coming together and Airtel buying spectrum in upcoming auction,it will be great thing going forward. Vodafone-Idea needs only band 41 in most of the circles(which they can buy and deploy it aggressively in 2020 to take capacity to a new level,it can be purchased at bottom rates) and Airtel-Jio won’t buy… Read more »

Well 09AZ was complaining about partiality and we all know AVIL-BSNL do tremendous amount of partiality. So I told him to use jio. Now if he is more concerned about network speed then he should choose the best operator at his place…it might be AVIL-BSNL or Jio depending on the performance. I didn’t impose anything. You should also do the same. As far as I am concerned, I fought with jio for over 2yrs and then got small cells installed near my house which your beloved AVIL-BSNL would never ever did. Even when I faced worst network of Jio I… Read more »

Well 09AZ was complaining about partiality and we all know AVIL-BSNL do tremendous amount of partiality. So I told him to use jio.

So if Jio network is not good at his place, then he should be stuck for 90 days before switching to another? I am trying to say that you suggested this by assuming network of Jio is good at his place which was wrong.

One last question, if Jio would have not installed small cell at your place for two more years even after reporting issues to them, you would have stayed on same network for another two years?

Yes i would have stayed. Because jio’s call quality is unmatchable. I would have used my broadband connection instead for my data needs which I was doing at those periods when network problems were happening. I just used to recharge RS 98 for calling and a little bit of data for mobile usage.

I didn’t assume anything. He was complaining about partiality and i just suggested an impartial network. The only one at present in India. It’s their USP by which they’ve captured the market.

Their USP is gaining customers from free tariffs. Anyways its your call. I found it a bit weird that’s why asked(Just because of same tariffs, I won’t choose Jio/shitty network).

Before small cells installation in my area all networks were shitty with voice call problems. Only jio had best voice call. So i chose jio. At least I used to get excellent voice call. Others were shitty in both voice and data. Also simple tariffs are a huge differentiator for me.

Here in Maharashtra/Gujarat/Goa/Mumbai, Airtel is simply great in last one year or so. Jio has gone terribly worst. In terms of call quality as well. Even in their own premises. Both Ghansoli(NAVI Mumbai) and their petrochemical unit in Raigad District. Even after installing new towers, problem didn’t get solved. In Mumbai, in deep parts, there are lot of blank spots. Coverage gets nil. Even in few parts of Maharashtra. Where Airtel has decent coverage due to band 8/3 respectively. Even if network is there, lot of people face serious call drop issues. In all parts of Mumbai. I have personally… Read more »

Yes, use what is best at your place. Nobody is forcing anyone to use particular service. As informed telecomtalk readers we need to foster free opinion and take decision accordingly. Peace!

Try selecting different bands. Like Band 3, Band 40, Band 8 etc

No my place belongs to Kolkata circle. I use only Jio as my primary sim. Dont use any other number. Jio is more than sufficient for me.

Aniruddha Dhar|Santragachi|West Bengal

Jiophone is a network locked device. That’s why it gets special tarrifs on promotional basis. It won’t last forever.

And regarding blocking of unlimited calls, jio’s terms and conditions clearly mentioned its for personal usage and not for telemarketing purposes. This terms can be found on other networks also(unless they limit it with an FUP based terms).
