BSNL plans to introduce unlimited free mobile calls to any network for 149 rupees in branches from 1 January 2017

BSNL to introduce unlimited free mobile calls for Rs 149 per month.

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL), a PAN India 3G service provider, is getting ready to introduce unlimited free mobile calls to any network for Rs 149, which would be made accessible to its 3G/2G mobile users starting on January 1st, 2017.

As we previously reported, the new unlimited package would assist the PSU in catching up to the rates provided by the recently entered Reliance Jio InfoComm Limited. 300 MB of internet use for customers of BSNL’s 149 unlimited voice plan may be included. Anupam Shrivastava, the chairman and managing director of BSNL, stated, “We are working on a plan to allow unlimited voice calls to mobile subscribers at any network throughout India for Rs 149 per month.”

Voice communications will be forwarded by the PSU over its broadband network. However, the free-voice feature will also be accessible whenever a member uses it away from home. The broadband network of BSNL is also being upgraded to accommodate voice traffic. The PSU would also try to lower interconnection use costs (IUC) by providing unlimited voice calls over its current broadband network for Rs 149 per month.

“Jio has developed a revolutionary strategy and we are ready to adapt to our competitors’ tariffs,” added BSNL CMD.

Since the program would be accessible to all current 3G/2G mobile users, the recently suggested Unlimited Voice plan 149 will be a huge success in the country’s present telecom sector. According to sources, BSNL’s Unlimited Voice plan would be accessible through the VoIP mobile app known as the BSNL SIP App.

In order to compete with Jio and other private operators, BSNL has introduced a number of attractive tariff offers in the mobile and fixed/broadband markets. Some of them are listed below:
