Taking on private telecom operators, state-owned BSNL has launched a new plan. It is dubbed as BSNL Data Tsunami offer and under this offer, the telecom operator is giving 1.5GB data per day for 26 days for Rs. 98. The new data STV-98 pack is available with immediate effect across all BSNL circles in India.
The new BSNL pack comes days after the telco launched its Rs. 118 pack that offered unlimited voice calling and 1GB of data with a validity of 28 days. This Rs. 98 pack, however, offers only data and is introduced to take on Jio and Airtel. It is to be noted BSNL offers 3G speeds in all circles except Kerala while Jio and Airtel offer 4G speed across all the circles.

With the new Rs. 98 pack, BSNL is offering 1.5GB data per day for 26 days which makes a total of 39 GB data. This means BSNL is offering data at Rs. 2.51 per GB. This is lower than what Jio is offering with its Rs. 149 pack that has a validity of 28 days and offers 1.5GB data per day. Airtel also has a similar Rs. 149 pack that 1GB per day for 28 days.
“BSNL provides efficient services at cheaper rates as per requirement of customers. This is a pure data STV which provides at a very economic rate at Rs. 2.51 per GB,” said RK Mittal, Director (CM), BSNL Board, in a press statement.
Earlier this month, BSNL launched its Rs. 118 pack that offers 1GB data as well as unlimited voice call benefits for 28 days. The prepaid pack also offers access to free BSNL caller tune. This pack competes against Rs. 98 pack by Jio. Jio offers unlimited voice calls, 2GB of data, and 300 SMS messages for the 28 days validity and also includes free access to Jio apps.
