Reliance became curtain raiser for exciting competition between Indian telecoms in India. After the Reliance Jio, now BSNL also coming with Lifetime Free Voice calls to its subscribers. Similar to Reliance BSNL also starting to focus on Data revenue instead of voice calls.
As per the statement from Anupam Shrivastava, starting from 1st Jan 2017 BSNL offers Lifetime Free Voice calls for every plan the subscribers use.
Reliance Jio starting plan is priced at Rs. 149 whereas BSNL announced that their plans would be at least 2-5 rupees cheaper than Reliance. If it happens, here the main competitor for Reliance Jio is BSNL.
But as per the information we got from the trusted sources, the users must have a home broadband connection to avail lifetime free voice calls. BSNL will route the voice calls through home broadband with the help of landlines associated with that broadband.
Reliance Jio only works in those areas where 4G connectivity is available. But BSNL has 2G, 3G and 4G networks across thousands of villages, towns, and cities in India. So the user base will be much greater than Reliance Jio who are going to enjoy BSNL free lifetime calls.
