With Reliance Jio Prime Membership program expiring today, rival telecom operators have introduced new data plans to woo subscribers. While Idea today launched a ‘1GB of 4G data per day’ plan, state run telcos MTNL and BSNL have also joined the bandwagon. MTNL is now offering 2GB of 3G data per day for Rs 319. The plan is available from April 1. BSNL, on the other hand, is offering 10GB of data under an Unlimited Broadband at Rs 249 plan.

Under MTNL s Rs 319 plan, users get 2GB of 3G data per day along with unlimited voice calls within MTNL network. The plan is valid for 28 days. MTNL customers would have to recharge with the same value for the subsequent month if they wish to continue with the tariff plan. The Rs 319 plan is presently available for MTNL customers in Delhi and Mumbai circles. Also Read - BSNL offering up to 4 months free broadband service: Here's how to avail the offer
This promotional offer is valid for 90 days. MTNL customers will also get 25 minutes of free call to other networks everyday and after that they will be charged 25 paise for a minute phone call, the operator further revealed.
BSNL s Rs 249 plan, alongside the 10GB data per day, would also offer unlimited free calls to any network between 9AM to 7AM on Sundays. BSNL is the only operator who is offering cheapest 10 GB per day data download plan under wireline Broadband services in the country, said NK Gupta, Director (NFA) BSNL Board.

Earlier this year, BSNL launched a plan under which it offered unlimited local and STD calls to any network for a period of one month. The plan also included 300MB of data. Priced at Rs 144, the plan is available for just six months, with effect from January.
At this point we would like to remind, the bundled data offered by MTNL and BSNL would be available at 3G speeds.
With its aggressively priced data plans and unlimited voice calls, Reliance Jio gained 100 million subscribers in around 170 days of its commercial launch. Rival operators have been working to counter Reliance Jio with their own set of low-cost data plans and free voice calls schemes. From Airtel to Idea Cellular, there has been a flurry of such plans. Airtel recently gave away up to 100GB of data under its Broadband Surprise offer and replicated similar surprise scheme with its Holi offer. Now that Reliance Jio s free offers are expiring today, rival telecom operators have found a window of opportunity to woo consumers.
