Reliance Jio has been ruling the telecom industry ever since its launch and created a stir in data pricing. Jio not only comes with revised plans at regular intervals but also force its competitors to come up with a better plan or leave market share.
In a latest to this BSNL has revised its existing Rs 187 plan which will now offer unlimited roaming calls in its operating cities. The plan is a validity of 28 days.
If 28 days seems less for Rs 187 then users can opt for Rs 186 plan which offers unlimited local and STD voice calls and 1GB daily data. This plan has a validity of 180 days but an important thing to note is that data will be given only in the first 28 days of the recharge and unlimited voice calls can be made to any network.
As the telecom war is going on, BSNL has promised that it would match Jio tariff-by-tariff and BSNL not only limited to this but BSNL would also come up with a smartphone that could cost under Rs 2500 that would be bundled with voice and data plans from BSNL
