BSNL's year-long validity package is so cheap and full of advantages that it easily outperforms what Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel, and Vodafone Idea have to offer. BSNL would have been the country's top operator if it had an existing 4G network with extensive coverage.
Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has flaws in terms of service delivery and network management, yet the firm nevertheless provides relatively affordable prepaid plans. The telco's year-long validity plans are so cheap and full of features that they easily outperform those offered by Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel, and Vodafone Idea to its users. BSNL would have been the country's top operator if it had an existing 4G network with extensive coverage. Regardless, the firm has some extremely appealing long-term ambitions; let's take a look at them.
Long-Term Vouchers From BSNL
For the long period, BSNL provides two plan coupons. Both plans have a 365-day (1-year) validity period and offer a variety of perks to consumers. The unique feature of both vouchers is that they are inexpensive in comparison to the advantages they deliver to consumers. The two plans we're discussing are priced at Rs 1,999 and Rs 2,399.
Long-term plans for the same price are also available from Jio, Airtel, and Vi. However, none of the commercial providers provide as much value as BSNL with its plans.
Starting at Rs 1,999, the PV 1999 offers 2GB of daily data and genuinely unlimited calling for the entire year. The internet speed drops to 80 Kbps once the user has used up the day's fair-usage-policy (FUP) data. Users will also receive 100 SMS each day and a complimentary Eros Now OTT subscription. There's a free caller tune feature, as well as limitless music switching and Lokdhun material (for 60 days).
PV 2399 is the second voucher, and it costs Rs 2,399. With the coupon, users get 3GB of daily bandwidth, 100 SMS each day, and genuinely limitless phone calls. The internet speed reduces to 80 Kbps after using the FUP data, and customers also get a free caller tone and Eros Now OTT perk. The advantages of both programs are good for a year.
It's vital to keep in mind that both coupons may not be accessible in all circles. It's also worth mentioning that the company's two most expensive plan vouchers for plan extension and plan migration are these two.
While Airtel, Jio, and Vodafone Idea (Vi) don't provide as many features as BSNL's prepaid plans, they all have decent 4G coverage across the nation. This allows them to stay ahead of the state-run operator, despite the fact that their plans are somewhat more expensive and, in most cases, provide fewer benefits. The BSNL's mission to bring 4G services to India is still ongoing.
