The FIFA World Cup 2018 is here, and BSNL is ensuring you can watch the matches even when away from home. Before the tournament kicks off, BSNL has introduced a FIFA World Cup Special Data STV 149 plan that offers 4GB daily data to users.

This promotional data-only pack is priced at Rs 149, and will go live starting tomorrow. It will be valid from June 14 to July 15, which also happens to be the duration of the World Cup tournament, TelecomTalk reports. This offer is valid for BSNL prepaid users across all circles, except Mumbai and Delhi. As this is a data-only promotional offer, users won’t get any voice and SMS benefits.

This isn’t the first time BSNL has introduced a promotional offer around a major event. Back in April during IPL 2018, the state-run telco had introduced a Rs 248 plan that offered 3GB daily data for a period of 51 days.

While this new BSNL plan has been introduced with the FIFA World Cup in mind, its timing is anything but coincidental. Just yesterday, Reliance Jio introduced its Double Dhamaka offer.

As a part of this, all Reliance Jio prepaid plans priced between Rs 149 and Rs 499 will now offer 1.5GB additional data per day. This promotional offer is valid between June 12 and June 30. With its latest promotional plans, Jio is effectively bringing down the per GB cost to Rs 1.7, which currently no other service provider offers. Additionally, Jio has also announced 20 percent cashback on select plans when a user recharges via the MyJio app.
