Before u use Annual data plan please know the fact that jio will launch 4G by this december,so i don’t think annual data plan for 12months have any benefits right now bcz price of data will be reduced in market due to intense competition when jio launch their 4G.so think twice before u go….

Seems bsnl again want to loose its customers.
While idea, Vodafone ,tata reduced their data rates , bsnl doing opposite.
Now 1GB 3G/28 days
rates for Maharashtra are:
Idea n Vodafone: 250 rs;
Tata 209;
Bsnl 200 .
If rates are almost same, user will go with best network operator .
Whether bsnl also provide user specific offers? If so what is ussd code to check special offers for bsnl no?
