On Diwali, BSNL Offers Free Unlimited Voice Calling Benefits to Landline and Broadband Customers
BSNL has initiated the unlimited voice calling benefits that will be offered for 24 hours from Sunday, October 27, to Monday, October 28.
Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) is offering unlimited voice calling benefits to all its landline and broadband customers, for a limited time, as a part of its festal celebration. The state-owned telecom operator has highlighted in a press note that with this offer BSNL customers will be able to make unlimited voice calls to any landline and mobile number all over India. BSNL also revealed about its Bharat Fiber extension plans and stated that it is set to bring the optical fibre-based service in the next couple of months to few towns and villages in India.
Celebrating Diwali, the festival of light with its landline and broadband customers, BSNL has initiated the unlimited voice calling benefits that will be offered for 24 hours from Sunday, October 27, to Monday, October 28. The operator has also declared in its press note that it is set to bring "umbrella coverage" of Bharat Fiber service all over India by March 2020. The service was launched in January 2019 in competition with Reliance Jio's Jio Fiber by offering broadband access at Rs. 1.1 per GB.
Vivek Banzal, Director, BSNL, said in the note, "We appreciate that on the festival occasions, our customers share greetings with their friends and families and as calling experience through BSNL landline is the best, so best wishes should be done through [the] best possible medium."
BSNL Earlier this week revised its Rs. 429, Rs. 485, and Rs. 666 prepaid plans to offer unlimited voice calls in Delhi and Mumbai circles. Recently the operator also announced that it would float tender for 50,000 4G sites next month to improve its network coverage in India.
The Union Cabinet gave in-principle approval on Wednesday for merging BSNL and MTNL. Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad in a briefing said that BSNL and MTNL would raise a sovereign bond of Rs. 15,000 crores for their revival and assets of both operators worth Rs. 38,000 crores would be monetised.
