State-owned telecom operator BSNL and private TSP Vodafone Idea have changed their network names in order to generate awareness among users regarding COVID-19. The government has imposed 21-day lockdown to stop the spread of Coronavirus. To support the decision by the government, BSNL has changed its network name from BSNL Mobile to ‘BSNL Stay at Home‘. Similarly, Vodafone Idea has added a suffix in their network name to spread awareness about COVID-19. Vodafone network name is being displayed as ‘Vodafone-Be Safe.’ Not only this, but DoT has also directed all the telecom operators to change their default caller tunes into 30-second Coronavirus Prevention Caller Tune.

Vodafone Gets Mixed Reaction in New Network Name

Vodafone has received various tweets regarding the changed network name. While some people have appreciated the move of the telco, some users have shown their disinterest in the new move made by Vodafone. The reason behind the negative comments is the current financial distress of the telco giant because of AGR dues along with network tower issues.

BSNL is Extending Prepaid Plans of Subscribers along with Free Talk Time

Government-owned BSNL is trying hard to create awareness amongst the users regarding Coronavirus. Besides changing the operator name, BSNL is also extending

the validity of its prepaid plans until April 20, 2020. Not only this, but the state-owned telco is also offering Rs 10 talk time to subscribers. So even the balance is zero, BSNL prepaid users will be able to connect with their closest ones. This move by the telco will primarily aid the migrant workers and low-income groups who are facing communication problems because of the 21 days lockdown period. Similar to BSNL, Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea have also extended the validity of their prepaid plans along with free talk time credit.
