Jio, Airtel, Idea, Vodafone

The BSNL Rs 339 pack has some major benefits like on the face of it, it seems to be offering double the data that Reliance Jio and others are offering for a similar price.

Meanwhile, incumbent telecom operator Airtel is offering its postpaid customers an additional 30 GB free data with a 10 GB per month limit.

Under its new data offer named as "Combo STV" at Rs 339, customers will get access to unlimited calls in BSNL network and unlimited data with fair use policy of 2GB per day with validity of 28 days. Though Jio offers unlimited calling to other networks also, it only offers 1GB data per day; whereas, BSNL is offering 2GB data per day. The interesting bit is that most of these promotional offers coincide with Jio's Prime Membership.

As a counter to Reliance Jio, the state-run telecom network BSNL (Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited) announced the new plan.

If there was one network operator who didn't still announce anything real big against the likes of Jio, Airtel, Idea, and Vodafone, it is BSNL. Airtel is as well offering free 4G data to its postpaid clients under its "Airtel Surprise" offer. It had also alleged that the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) is "perpetuating illegality" by allowing the 4G entrant to game the interconnect regime by allowing Jio to offer free voice and data services.

Jio had launched the inaugural free voice and data plan in September past year, and in December, extended the freebies till March, 2017. TRAI recommended that Idea, Airtel and Vodafone should bear a penalty worth INR 3,050 crore ($465 million) for not giving enough points of interconnection (PoI) to Reliance Jio.
