India’s National Telecom Backbone and Pan India 3G mobile service provider Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) today announced the extension of its promotional offer of 3G Data Plans at discounted rates for 3 months.

Now BSNL 3G subscriber (Prepaid and Postpaid) using 5000 MB, 10,000 MB and 15000 MB plans can enjoy discounted price up to 40% for another period of 3 months i.e.up to 31st March 2012. Earlier the 3G Data benefit offer was valid till 31st December 2011.

on 6th September this year, BSNL has revised its 3G Data offerings and announced the new increased price of certain Prepaid STVs and Postpaid Fixed Monthly Charge (FMC) as we earlier shared on TelecomTalk.

Interestingly, leading private operators like IDEA Cellular, Vodafone India, Aircel and Reliance Mobile (Rcom) launched such a discount scheme called as “Double Dhamaka” or “Double Data Benefits” offer valid till December 2011 and BSNL’s  Discounted 3G Data Plans was also valid till 31st Dec 2011.

Well, now BSNL extended its offer to the 31st March 2012. Lets see private operators follow this move to provide affordable 3G or not !

Photon Plus even though it generally claims to give speed upto 3.1 Mbps it generally gives speed of .3-.4 Mbps…at the same time it is very reliable unlike BSNL 3G..which is not reliable at all..but TATA giving a speed of 10% of what they promise…is not acceptable…only Mukesh Ambani can herald a revolution in India..waiting for 4G and expecting to have at least 40% of peak speed..then only telecom companies can change,,


I took a 3G sim for 59..did the first recharge coupon of 120..and then further recharged by 750 in an impression that I will get 5 GB of data…to my astonishment I got total data validity of approx. 13 GB…I am still unable to do the mathematics of it…today somehow being an exception 3 G seldom works on Saturdays and Sundays..so the services are not reliable even on weekdays though generally able to connect..and I can see 3G tower from my window…
