BSNL Subscribers Should Hold On to their SIMs and Here are the Reasons Why

Follow Us

The state-led telecom operator, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has been making massive progress in the telecom sector lately. Ever since the telco promised about making consumer-centric moves, the telecom operator has majorly been living up to its words with the launch of new plans, offers and more for its subscribers. As a result, the telecom operator is one of the two telecom operators to gain subscribers in the past quarters. However, still, there are some BSNL subscribers who are thinking of switching up their service provider. Still, there are some reasons that the subscribers of BSNL should consider sticking with the service provider because there is a chance that the subscribers might enjoy more benefits with BSNL as compared to other telecom operators. So, without further ado, let’s see what are the reasons for BSNL subscribers to stick with their telecom operators.


Still Providing Talk Time Plans

BSNL is the only telecom company right now in the market that is offering talk time plans to its consumers. In an industry where the other private telecom operators have migrated to the minimum prepaid plans, BSNL is sticking with the talk time plans. This means that even though the subscribers have less balance in their prepaid accounts, they won’t be barred from using incoming services. This comes as one of the prime benefits of a BSNL prepaid connection.

Variety of Prepaid Plans from BSNL

BSNL stands out far ahead of other prepaid connection options like Vodafone Idea, Bharti Airtel and others because the telecom operator is offering a massive range of plans. These plans are targeted towards different consumers meaning that the subscribers will have plenty of options if they want to have voice-only plans, data-only plans, short validity or long-term plans as well. On the other hand, telecom operators like Vodafone Idea and Bharti Airtel have a limited portfolio.

Eros Now Membership with Select BSNL Plans

At one point of time, BSNL was the only telecom operator left out in the playing field, which was not offering any content for the subscribers. However, BSNL surprised its customers after it started offering Eros Now membership to its customers. The first plan from BSNL to come with the benefit was the STV 78. Further on, there came a lot of plans from BSNL which started offering the benefit which included Rs 333 plan, Rs 444 plan, Rs 98 prepaid plan and more. Eros Now will provide 11,000 movies, music videos, original web shows and exclusive videos to the subscribers.

Affordable Combo Plans Starting at Rs 29

BSNL being on a quest to gain more subscribers has rolled out new very affordable plans which offer a lot of choice for the subscribers. The plans start at the meagre price of Rs 29 and go as high as Rs 1,699 and even beyond. In between such a massive range of prepaid plans, the subscribers are presented with ample choice to choose a prepaid plan which is fully customised to their needs.

Bumper Offer With 2.2GB Additional Data

Perhaps, the biggest benefit which BSNL is currently offering to its subscribers is of the 2.2GB additional data. As part of this bumper offer, the subscribers of BSNL get to enjoy 2.2GB additional data per day for a promotional period. The additional data means that customers getting 1GB data will get 3.2GB data and so on. This is one of the major reasons why BSNL subscribers have been generous towards the telecom operator. Some of the major plans with this benefit include the Rs 1,699, Rs 666 and other plans.
