BSNL STV 395 Revised: New Benefits Detailed
The STV 395 from BSNL will now offer free 3000 on-net minutes and 1800 off-net minutes. Earlier, the same STV 395 used to ship with unlimited voice calling, however, the telco used to cap at 250 minutes per day. After the free minutes, all the voice calls will be charged at 20 paise per minute. This is an interesting move from BSNL as private telcos Airtel and Vodafone Idea are offering unlimited voice calling without any FUP limit. Reliance Jio is capping the off-net voice calling minutes and charging six paise per minute.
BSNL is also offering 2GB data per day with the STV 395 and the validity of the plan remains unchanged at 71 days. The revised STV 395 is already effective across all telecom circles except Mumbai and New Delhi where MTNL is providing telecom services in place of BSNL.
As always, BSNL did not provide the exact reason behind bringing back the voice calling FUP limit. It is said to see BSNL even limiting the on-net voice calling with STV 395. A limit of 3000 BSNL to BSNL minutes for 71 days will surely irk the BSNL users who recharge this plan regularly. What do you think of this move from BSNL? Let us know by commenting below.
