With Airtel, Vodafone-Idea, and Jio being fierce competitors, BSNL will have to be at the top of its game if they want to lure new subscribers.
Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited has launched a new prepaid plan for its customers that will give 2GB data per day for Rs 998. The new plan from BSNL will be valid for 210 days. It is important to note that this new prepaid plan from BSNL will not include any unlimited voice calling or SMS benefits.
