To counter Reliance Jio’s Double Dhamaka offer, the state-owned telco BSNL has launched its own FIFA World Cup Special Data STV 149 which will give the users 4GB daily data for a validity of 28 days at just Rs 149. This offer will be valid for the entire duration of the FIFA world cup. The pack only ships the high data offer and doesn’t provide any other add-ons over this.
However, besides the season based plan, BSNL also offers plans costing Rs 186, Rs 429, Rs 485, Rs 666 and Rs 999. These plans used to bundle 1GB/1.5GB data per day but they now come with additional 2GB daily data, which means that they now offer 3GB/3.5GB of data benefit per day. Although the validity of these plans along with other specifications remain the same for all the plans, the offer will hold valid for the users who recharge using these plans within the next 60 days.
FIFA 2018 Offers by Vodafone India
Vodafone is taking a different path for this football season. The telco is holding various types of contests and competitions online to increase audience engagement on the Vodafone Play app. During the FIFA season, the telco is offering the chance to win an iPad Mini to contestants who either win a game or make a transaction.
