In an attempt to present a solid fight to the private Telecom Companies, state-owned Telecom operator Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited has launched new ‘Freedom Prepaid Plans’ which are available at dirt cheap prices. This new offers come right ahead of the Indian Independence Day and has also been named accordingly. The plans will be available starting August 10 in all circles, and with these new plans, BSNL seems to be catering to the ultra-low-price category. BSNL has launched two plans of Rs 9 and Rs 29 under Freedom Prepaid Plans as part of the Independence Day on August 15.
BSNL Freedom Chhota Prepaid PlansThe cheapest offering in the Freedom plan is the Rs 9 plan which offers 2GB total data benefit with an after FUP speed of 80 Kbps. There is also the usual benefit of unlimited voice calling (except to Delhi and Mumbai) and 100 free SMSes. The validity period of this plan is one day.
The next plan in this series is the Rs 29 plan which offers the same benefit as the Rs 9 plan including 2GB daily data with post FUP speed of 80 Kbps, 100 SMSes and unlimited voice calling (except to Delhi and Mumbai). However, the validity of this plan extends to 7 days.
Both these plans come with free Personalised Ringback Tune (PRBT) facility.
Availability of BSNL Freedom PlansAlthough the plans have been launched keeping Independence Day in mind, they will be available for subscription starting August 10 and will be up for grabs till August 25. In between these days users can buy the Rs 9 or Rs 29 plan as per their wish. However, a thing to note here is that in case the validity of the subscribed plan extends beyond August 25, then the subscribers will be downgraded to the plan of 1GB daily data, post FUP speed of 80 Kbps, 100 SMS and general calling benefits. Notably, these benefits are part of the Rs 27 plan which is up for subscription all year round. The Freedom offer, unlike the standard offerings, is a promotional offer valid till August 25.
As of late, BSNL has been making rapid changes to its prepaid and postpaid plans both to provide more and more benefit to the users. With this new Freedom prepaid plan, BSNL has officially introduced the cheapest offering in the market. Before this, the most affordable offering was from Reliance Jio under which it is shipping 150MB of 4G data along with voice calls for a validity period of one day at Rs 19. On the other hand, Airtel and Vodafone offer Rs 47 plans which are the entry-level plans from their side.
