While Airtel, Reliance Jio and Vodafone Idea increased tariffs last month, BSNL decided not to hike the price. In fact, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited started offering extra validity with select plans. The move allowed BSNL to stay clear of the private telecom players. BSNL remains popular among consumers despite the fact that it lacks 4G services. However, the lack of 4G services also limits the operator from reaching a larger set of customers. Also Read - BSNL broadband users can enjoy 4 months for free: Here's the offer
