BSNL is now offering Rs 247 prepaid plan with 3GB data per day with an extended validity of 40 days as part of a promotion. In comparison, other telcos are all offering similar daily data plans for almost double the amount at around Rs 400. In case you are a BSNL subscriber and in a 3G coverage area, the BSNL STV 257 is a good plan to get.
BSNL is known for offering attractive data plans with as high as 3GB daily data under Rs 200 in the past. These weren’t as lucrative as competitive brands because while Airtel, Jio and Vodafone are offering high-speed 4G data, BSNL is yet to roll out its 4G services in India. For now, let’s take a look at all benefits being offered by the BSNL STV 247 prepaid plan.

As mentioned before, the BSNL STV 247 prepaid plan offers 3GB data per day to users for the duration of its validity. The BSNL prepaid plan comes with a validity of 30 days, totalling 90GB data. However, the state-run telco is running a promotional offer till November 30th, offering additional 10 days of validity and taking the total amount of data to 120GB. After the daily limit of 3GB has been exhausted, BSNL will cap the speed to 80Kbps.
Apart from daily data, BSNL is also offering voice calling and SMS benefits to the subscribers of this plan. Users will get free voice calls of 250 minutes per day to all networks in the country. Additionally, users can send 100 SMSes per day to any network for the duration of the validity.
In comparison, Jio offers 3GB daily data, unlimited on-net calling, 1,000 minutes non-Jio voice calling and 100 SMSes per day for 28 days with its Rs 349 prepaid recharge. Airtel and Vi offer the same benefits with unlimited voice calling to any network and 28 days validity for Rs 398.
