BSNL offers several data-only prepaid plans. We talk about Rs 318 plan today.
Reliance Jio, Airtel and Vodafone-Idea are some of the key players of the Indian telecom industry and then there’s BSNL (Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited). The state-owned telecom operator isn’t as competitive as other private telcos but when it comes to long term data-only prepaid packs it offers some good recharge plans for its consumers. One of the best data only plan from BSNL in India right now is worth Rs 318. This is the plan we are going to talk about in detail today.
Unlike Jio, Airtel, and Vodafone-Idea, BSNL rarely have any competitive recharge plans as such. The company is its own competition. The prepaid plans that BSNL offer are pretty expensive when compared to Jio, Airtel and Vodafone-Idea.
Unlike Jio, Airtel, Vodafone-idea BSNL focuses a lot of data only plans. Other private telcos also have data-only plans but all of them are priced under Rs 100 and aren't available to all users. Meanwhile, BSNL's data-only recharge packs are available to everyone and across price segments.
