BSNL 3G For 700 INR Per Month

by mohit on October 26, 2010

Ever since the launch of 3G mobile services in India by the state-owned mobile companies BSNL and MTNL ahead of their private counterparts, the price-war can already be smelt in the air. BSNL has yet again(for the second time in last 2 months) slashed down its monthly rental for the Unlimited Data Plan, this time by almost 50%. Yes, you heard it right.

The effective cost of using unlimited BSNL 3G will be Rs. 700/month* (Rs. 4,200 for 6 months) from 1st November 2010. All the BSNL 3G users should also note that there is no fair usage policy applicable on this scheme so you can download/upload as much as you want.

Earlier, there was a news of 3G tariff reduction in the month of September when BSNL reduced the unlimited monthly rental from Rs. 2,499/month to Rs. 1,499 and now again the BSNL has announce its 3G tariff reduction. But this rime around, in addition to the reduction in monthly rental, BSNL has also reduced the price of its Data Card.

Private telecos like DOCOMO, Airtel and Vodaphone who are on the verge of launching 3G services will surely have to keep an eagle’s eye on these cuts in the prices by existing 3G service providers. This is not going to be easy for private players after paying a huge amount of money to acquire licenses and the fact that no provider has license to operate in every circle, makes it even tough to establish themselves as a key 3G provider in India. Every 3G provider will have to make tie-ups for providing services on roaming which will again increase the cost.

It will be quite interesting to see the private providers’ answer to this brutal blow from BSNL.
