Can Reliance Jio Beat Rs 1,199 Plan from BSNL That Offers Both Broadband and Mobile Data Benefits?

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL), the state-led telecom operator has been making consumer-centric moves in the market for the betterment of the company and to lure more and more subscribers. Being the biggest wired broadband provider in the country, these moves have also been extended to the wired broadband segment, and as such, the telco has launched many new revisions and plans for the consumers which offer attractive data and other freebies to the consumers. One such plan in BSNL’s portfolio is the BBG COMBO ULD 1199 Family plan which has been in the market for a while now. And it is one of the plans which might give the other telecom operators a run for their money, even to the likes of Reliance Jio which plans to lands with its GigaFiber high-speed internet service in a few weeks. Check the benefits and other details of this plan.

BSNL BBG COMBO ULD 1199 Family Plan Details

Firstly, the BBG COMBO ULD 1199 Family plan bundles 30GB data per day at 10 Mbps speed, and the after FUP speed in this plan is 2 Mbps. Along with this data offering, the plan bundles free unlimited local plus STD calling to any network in India, paired with prevailing VAS services (Music, games, movies ) free of cost under BB Plan. Lastly, the highlight of this plan is that it bundles three mobile connections for the users as well. These three mobile connections also enjoy unlimited free calling to any network in India, and unlimited data with throttled speed to 40 kbps after 1GB. There is also free PRBT for these numbers. One SIM out of the three will also enjoy free online TV and one-month free e-learning to anyone subject for Students up to Class XII.

Comparison With Reliance Jio GigaFiber

Like we mentioned above, this new plan by BSNL is a very strong offering in the broadband segment by the state-led telecom operator. Compared to some of the other broadband plans in the market, this plan offers much more data, albeit at a slightly slower speed. Apart from that, the added benefit of the plan is the free mobile connection for three family members which also enjoy free calling and 1GB data per day, and the total monthly rental is only limited to Rs 1,199.

In contrast to this, Reliance Jio’s GigaFiber service has been rumoured to come with a Rs 600 rental for the 100 Mbps speed which will offer 100GB data per month along with landline and GigaTV. However, even Reliance Jio isn’t offering mobile connections on its plans, so there is definitely some edge which the subscribers might see in this BSNL broadband plan. Subscribers who want more data and perks like the added mobile connections and don’t mind the speed of 10 Mbps will find this plan very attractive.

Reliance Jio is said to bring broadband, landline and DTH bill under one bill with Jio GigaFiber and it’ll be interesting to see whether the company plans to integrate mobile connections as well.
