Recently, BSNL revised its Rs 666 prepaid plan to offer users with extended validity. Earlier, the plan used to offer a validity of 122 days, but after the revision, it now offers a validity of 134 days. The plan also included 100 free SMS daily, 3.7GB daily data, along with unlimited local and national calling.
Once the daily limit of 3.7GB is hit, users can continue with unlimited downloads, but at a reduced speed of 40Kbps. The telco also recently discontinued Rs 999 and Rs 2,099 prepaid plans. Both plans used to offer a validity of 365 days along with unlimited voice calling and some data benefits.
Talking about data benefits, while the Rs 999 plan offered 3.2GB daily data, the Rs 2,099 plan included a total of 6.2GB data. After the data limit was hit, the speed would be throttled down to 80Kbps, and users would still be able to go with unlimited downloads.
