BSNL is leading ahead in the tariff department of private telcos despite being limited to 2G and 3G services. Even after the hike in price a year ago, BSNL is still the only telco in the country which gives 2GB data per day under Rs. 200 with validity of 28 days. With the Rs. 599 prepaid plan, BSNL is also leads ahead out of top three telecom operators- Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea. Currently, all the telcos in India are offering a maximum of 2GB data per day with their prepaid plans of Rs. 599 but BSNL is offering a massive 5GB data per day and that too with 84 days validity from the date of recharge. BSNL is providing 420GB data in its Rs. 599 plan which is two times higher than the data offered by other telecom companies with their similarly priced plans.
BSNL Prepaid Recharge @ Rs. 599
This prepaid plan by BSNL comes with a validity of 84 days along with some really impressive benefits. The plan offers unlimited voice calling to any network within India, 5GB data per day and 100 SMS per day. Also, BSNL is marketing the plan as unlimited calling which offers a FUP limit of 250 minutes per day. Moreover, this prepaid plan allows users to set free caller tunes with BSNL Tunes benefit.
Reliance Jio Prepaid Recharge @ Rs. 599
This prepaid recharge comes under the 2GB per day data plan. It comes with 84 days validity, 2GB data per day which totals to 168GB data, unlimited Jio to Jio voice calls, non-Jio FUP minutes of 3000 and 100 SMS per day. Also, the company will provide speed at 64 Kbps if the data benefit gets exhausted.
Bharti Airtel Prepaid Recharge @ Rs. 599
Bharti Airtel has reintroduced Rs. 599 prepaid plan recently in order to attract the users. This prepaid recharge also comes with 2GB data per day, 56 days validity, truly unlimited voice calling without any FUP limit and 100 SMS per day. The only difference in the Rs. 599 prepaid recharges of Airtel and Jio is the lesser validity on the former and the lack of Disney+ Hotstar VIP subscription benefit on the latter.
Airtel is also providing its users free membership of Disney+ Hotstar VIP worth Rs. 399 with its Rs. 599 prepaid plan and because of this reason only the plan comes with validity of just 56 days.
Vodafone Idea Prepaid Recharge @ Rs. 599
This prepaid plan from Vodafone Idea offers 1.5GB data per day, unlimited voice calling to any network within India and 100 SMS per day with 84 days validity.
BSNL is way ahead as compared to Jio, Airtel and Vi in terms of data benefit. But again, we should be aware that the government-led PSU is yet to introduce 4G services in the country.
