With JioFibre set to be launched on September 05, 2019, telecom players are revising their plans in a bid to maintain their share in the industry and hence increase their revenue despite continually losing their subscribers to the Reliance juggernaut.
And it is not just telecom companies who are doing this, DTH service Tata Sky too made an announcement this week offering free additional months of usage to its subscribers. However, the offer will only be valid only for those who have the annual payment plans. Subscribers must note that the latest offer by DTH has only been made available in a few select cities whereas the extra validity is only valid on unlimited plans. Besides this, other cities too will get extra validity on fixed data plans.
Meanwhile, BSNL announced on Friday that the annual broadband plans which are set over Rs 399 will now bundle Amazon Prime membership which is worth Rs 999 for free, Telecom Talk reported.
