New BSNL 3G unlimited internet plan for Rs 700 month
UPDATE: This unlimited 3G offer has come to an end by BSNL for the new BSNL 3G unlimited plans click here.
This is a big surprise from BSNL they have just launched a new unlimited data plan for 3G users where you can get a unlimited 3G data plan for just Rs 700 / month this is phenomenal coz just about 2 months ago the unlimited 3G data plan for prepaid customers was Rs 2,756 /mo which was brought down to Rs 1,499 / month but there is a catch in this special 3G offer read more to find out.
Looks like BSNL is peeping up the 3G wars before private operators are going to launch there 3G services with the new 3G tariffs you can get unlimited data package for Rs 700 / month if you prepay for Rs 4,200 which has a validity for 6 months effectively getting you 3G unlimited data package for just Rs 700 / month, but this offer is valid only for 90 days from Nov 1, 2010 listed below are the other special festival packages.
Also during this special offer period you can also get some discount on the 3G data cards that are being offered via BSNL, but in my opinion its better to buy data cards from outside as it wont be locked to BSNL sim cards, as other private operators are on the verge of launching 3G services in India and it’s a better idea to get a unlocked 3G data card so that if you need to migrate to other providers you can do so also do opt for the 7.2 Mbps data card model to future proof your investment as I am sure private players will launch speeds 3G speeds upto 7.2 Mbps also in some areas of the BSNL 3G has towers have been upgraded to 7.2 Mbps.
At the time of writing this post these plans have been activated in Calcutta and Chennai and I expect BSNL to launch it all over India very soon, be sure to read my BSNL 3G review to get an overview about BSNL 3G services and setup.
