BSNL has just upgraded its STV-339 prepaid pack. Now you will get 3GB of daily high-speed internet for just Rs. 339 per month. The state-owned telecom company has also announced three new prepaid combo plans to take on Reliance Jio. Private operators like Airtel, Vodafone and Idea has already updated their tariff to counter with the country’s youngest telco.
The STV-339 is nothing new. BSNL had rolled it out weeks ago. At that time, it offered with 2GB high-speed data per day for a month. Now the daily quota is upgraded to 3GB after which, the speed will drop to 80 Kb/s. This adds up to a whopping 84 GB of high-speed internet for only Rs. 339.

Besides this, BSNL has unveiled three new data-centric plans for its prepaid subscribers. The trio is listed below along with their respective benefits:
- Dil Khol Ke Bol Offer (STV-349) – This gives 2GB of data per day and unlimited BSNL to BSNL (Local + STD) calls for 28 days. As you may guess, it costs Rs. 349.
- Triple Ace Offer (STV-333) – The Triple Ace Offer is a promotional plan. It comes with 3GB of 3G/4G data per day for as many as 90 days. As of now, it does not have any call benefits. You need to pay Rs. 333 to avail this.
- Nehle Pe Dehla Offer (STV-395) – Priced at Rs. 395, the Nehle Per Dehla will give you 2GB of high-speed internet each day. Additionally, you shall also be getting 1800 minutes of calls to any network and 3000 minutes BSNL to BSNL calls. This comes with a validity of 71 days or 10 weeks.
In comparison, Reliance Jio is giving 84 GB of 4G data along with unlimited voice + video calls and 100 daily SMS for 84 days at Rs. 309 under the Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan Offer. However, you need to pay an additional Rs. 99 to buy the mandatory Prime membership. This is actually beneficial since the Jio Prime membership comes with the promise of offering competitive plans for at least 1 year, whereas, there is no guarantee of BSNL’s plans.
Do note that the new tariff offers from BSNL may not be valid for every user. The recharge amount can also vary from region to region. So, please confirm before recharging.
