The various telecom service providers in India including Airtel Vodafone Idea (Vi), Airtel and Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) provides many recharge plans with various benefits for their Prepaid customers.
The tariff of the prepaid plans were recently increased by the various private telcos. Among the telcos, the govt-owned telco offers the most affordable tariffs in India. BSNL offers many prepaid plans at the same price as private companies. However, these plans offers different benefits at the same price.
For example the Rs 399 plan offered by BSNL has more validity than the same plan offered by Airtel and Vi.
BSNL Rs 399 Prepaid Plan
BSNL’s Rs 399 prepaid plan has a validity of 80 days and offers 1GB of daily data. But the speed will be reduced to 80 Kbps after the daily data limit is exhausted. Apart from this, subscribers will also get unlimited voice calling and 100 SMS/day with the prepaid plan. You will also get free BSNL Tunes and Lokdhun content bundled with the total benefits. If you are looking for a medium-term plan for an affordable price then this will be a good choice.
Bharti Airtel Rs 399 Prepaid Plan
Bharti Airtel offers its Rs 399 prepaid plan with a short validity of 28 days and 2.5GB of daily data along with unlimited voice calling, 100 SMS/day, and Airtel Thanks benefits. Subscribers can also enjoy an additional OTT benefits of free access to Disney+ Hotstar Mobile for three months.
Vodafone Idea Rs 399 Prepaid Plan
Vodafone Idea’s Rs 399 prepaid plan offers nearly the same benefits as the Airtel plan. But Vi’s plan does not provide the same additional benefits as Airtel’s plan. The Vi plan comes with Hero Unlimited benefits and a free OTT subscription of Disney+ Hotstar Mobile for three months, and Vi Movies & TV VIP access.
Vi Hero Unlimited benefits includes Weekend Data Rollover, Data Delights, and Binge all Night. This plan will be good for those who likes to surf internet or need a lot of data balance at an affordable price.
So in conclusion, BSNL Rs 399 plan has a longer validity while the private telcos offer shorter validity with a major OTT benefit and more daily data.
