BSNL has been on its heels to compete with Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel, and Vodafone Idea Ltd in the Indian telecom market. The state-owned telecom player has revised its existing plans and introduced new data plans aimed to counter the reach of other established players in the market. One such move to counter Jio and others was the introduction of additional 2.21GB data for its GSM prepaid subscribers. Now, the operator has announced that it is extending the 2.21GB data plan offered to prepaid subscribers till June 30. This is not the first time that the operator has announced extension of additional data to its subscribers.
To recall, BSNL announced extension of its 2.21GB additional data to prepaid subscribers back in January. Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited offered 2.21GB data in addition to the usual FUP data limit associated with the recharge plans availed by its subscribers. While that extension was valid till April 30, the operator has announced another extension for this additional data offer. In an update, the state-owned operator has announced that this promotional offer will be extended once again and will be live from May 1 to June 30, 2019.
