After Reliance Jio launched two new plans with 28 days validity under it Happy New Year 2018 offer, BSNL has sort of followed suit by revising its own Rs 186 plan to offer a higher amount of data with a validity of 28 days.

Under the BSNL Plan 186, the network provider is now offering 5GB of high-speed data, up from the earlier 1GB data. The plan also includes 1,000 SMS. As said, the validity of the offer is now 28 days. Do note, the price of the plan differs with every circle. Both new and existing BSNL prepaid users are eligible for the newly revised plan.

This BSNL offer competes with Reliance Jio’s recently rolled out Rs 199 and Rs 299 plans. While the Rs 199 plan offers free voice and unlimited data with a cap of 1.2GB 4G data per day and unlimited SMS, along with subscription to premium Jio Apps, the Rs 299 plan offers free voice, and 2GB 4G data per day, unlimited SMS and access to premium Jio Apps for all Jio Prime Members. In contrast, the earlier Rs 149 plan is worth noting because it offers 4GB of 4G data instead.

Though BSNL is aiming to compete with the Jio plans by pricing, Jio’s Rs 299 plan, offers a total 56GB of data in the span of 28 days, with a cap of 2GB daily data. This in comparison to BSNL’s 5GB data through the 28 days is a natural winner.
