In a bid to provide better and cheaper package than Relaince Jio, state-run BSNL is all set to slash its call rates.
According to TOI report, BSNL is planning to follow Jio in offering free voice calling on its network, and at plans that will be cheaper than the new entrant’s. And unlike Jio’s offer that is available for only 4G subscribers, the BSNL plan will be open to 2G and 3G users, which constitute the majority of mobile customers.
“We are closely observing the market as well as Jio’s performance. We will also come up with lifetime free-voice plans from the new year as part of fresh offerings,” BSNL chairman and managing director Anupam Shrivastava said.
If enacted, then this BSNL’s offer may put further pressure on operators such as Airtel , Vodafone and Idea to slash tariffs.
This is what you call “Acche din”.
