The State-run telecom operator BSNL introduced a new 'KOOL' offer for its prepaid customers on Thursday. The new KOOL offer provides unlimited data access, unlimited voice calls both local and roaming to any network, and also 100 SMSes per day for 84 days and all of it at Rs. 1,099. The state-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited introduced its first ever 4G services in the country to counter other telcos that are already offering 4G services for a long time now.
Under the new 'KOOL' offer, BSNL is offering unlimited data every day until the validity date -- this means there's no FUP limit for the customers, like most of the other tariff plans come with. Alongside the unlimited data offering, the new offer also comes with unlimited voice calling facility and provides 100 SMSes per day. Under the offer, the BSNL prepaid subscribers will also get access to Personalised Ring Back Tone (PRBT). The KOOL offer comes with a validity of 84 days and is worth Rs 1,099.
The new KOOL offer is at present available across all BSNL circles in the country and comes with its own perks and disadvantages. On one hand it offers unlimited data access -- which is unique -- as most of the tariff plans from BSNL and also other telecom operators like Airtel, Vodafone, Idea and the rest come with a daily FUP limit. While on the other hand, BSNL still offers 3G speeds in most regions, unlike its rivals that deliver 4G speeds. BSNL on Thursday introduced its first 4G service in Kerala and the telecom operator is gearing up to expand the service in the rest of the country.
Commenting on the new KOOL offer, R.K. Mittal, Director -- a member of the BSNL Board said, "We are committed to providing affordable and efficient services to our esteemed customers. BSNL introduced KOOL offer for Rs. 1,099 suitable for all segment of society and empowers family & friend to be in touch."
Recently, BSNL extended is free Sunday calling offer by another three months, which is until April 30. Under this offer, BSNL landline subscribers can make free calls to any network but that's only on Sundays between 10.30PM to 6.30AM. Commenting on the offer, a BSNL official earlier said that the scheme basically aims at encouraging people to use landlines when at home and in turn save phone bills.
