On the occasion of Dussehra, state-owned telecom operator BSNL has launched a promotional offer under which prepaid customers get double data benefits on four new data Special Tariff Vouchers (STVs).
"Four new Data STVs have been launched on festive season on pan India basis with validity of 365 days with double data offer from October 10 to 31 October 2016," Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) said in a statement.
Under this offer, Rs. 1,498 will give 18GB instead of 9GB data, Rs. 2,798 will give 36 GB instead of 18GB, Rs. 3,998 will give 60GB data instead of 30GB and Rs. 4,498 will give 80GB data instead of 40GB data.
"BSNL is committed to the benefit of its esteemed customers with utmost reliable and cheaper services," Director (CM) BSNL Board R K Mittal said.
Last week, in an attempt to compete with private players, BSNL plans to ramp up its mobile broadband capacity by up to two-fold to 600 terabyte in a month.
"We are seeing enormous increase in usage of mobile data on our network. We will be increasing our data network capacity to deliver high-speed 3G and other services. In South, we will double the capacity to 600 TB and in other zones, it will be up to 450 TB by November," BSNL Chairman and MD Anupam Shrivastava told PTI.
The loss-making state-run telecom firm did not participate in the spectrum auction and is making efforts to monetise its existing mobile airwaves.
