BSNL offers 2 GB data per day, unlimited calling at Rs 339

Bharti Airtel has raised the mobile data war to the next level with its surprise offer that provides 30GB free mobile 4G data to its users. "In the current framework, it is not easy to apportion the price of each component of the tariff offers", the paper had said.

There are some great offers for postpaid customers too. Speculating the extension of its freebies, The Telecom Disputes Settlement & Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) today demanded the regulatory authority, TRAI to re-examine the concerns related to the approval. Thereafter, it will examine their legality and whether the regulator was right in judging the tariff plans as non-discriminatory, non-predatory and IUC-compliant. As per the filed document, it is a Plan Voucher. So, speeds offered will be lower than what other telcos are offering. Airtel launched this offer on March 13, and according to its terms and conditions, it will be live until March 31st.

Earlier this month, BSNL has introduced new plans for its postpaid users. Second, a tariff plan can not increase rates for a period of six months, but Jio reduced it from December 31 to December 3, 2016. The Telecom Commission, however, questioned how TRAI made such a recommendation.

It further said that as per the design of the plan, subscribers get variable benefits within the same plan. On December 7, 2016 Jio filed HNY offer as a promotional offer starting from December 4 till March 3, 2017, offering up to 1GB data per day.
