The state-run telecom operator BSNL (Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited) has come with a new offer. It offers 2GB of free high-speed data to customers who are joining the network. This new offer came into effect just a few days ago, but there is no news about which circles this offer applies to.
BSNL Free Internet as Part of Digital India Initiative
As per the official announcement from the company, the subscriber must have a compatible 3G phone to avail this offer. And this offer also comes with a validity of 30 days. The subscriber needs to take the privilege of the 2GB high-speed data on offer within 30 days of getting the new connection.
BSNL also said that this new connection offer is under the initiative of Indian’s Government’s Digital India plan. With this offer, BSNL aims to allow their customers the internet experience for the first time. In the past too, BSNL had a similar offer for its new subscribers.
As far the plan is concerned, it will be available for grabs for anyone for the first 90 days from its date of introduction. After the 90 days are done, there is no certainty if the offer will remain intact. The company may introduce modifications to it or completely end it. This is not a new thing for BSNL as it is known to follow our Government’s Digital India initiative.
This is BSNL’s first good offer for the year 2018. Before this, the company has made some changes to their plans for the new year. They revised the broadband night calling timings from 9 PM – 7 AM to 10:30 PM – 6 AM. This resulted in complaints from customers from all the nation.
Another unwelcome change from BSNL was the revision made to the tariff plans of Rs 485 and Rs 429. The telecom operator cut down the validity of both these plans. Previously they had a validity of 84 days. But now the Rs 485 plan has a validity of 74 days while the Rs 429 plan has a validity of 71 days. This change in plans has disappointed customers from all over the nation as the other telecom operators are offering better plans with higher validity at the same price.
