More data to browse and more validity to use it, that’s what BSNL’s new 3G data STV brings. The Govt owned telecom operator, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has introduced a new Rs 444 worth 3G data STV (STV DATA444) for its Prepaid customers across pan India.
The new Rs 444 3G data STV offers prepaid customers with 3GB of 3G or 2G data usage with an extended validity of 60 days. Every additional data usage will be charged at 2 paise per 10 KB. The new data STV can be activated by doing a special recharge for Rs 444 (for Prepaid customers) or by sending an SMS with STV DATA444 to 121. (which will only then reduce Rs 389.47 from your existing balance)
On the other side BSNL has reduced the validity of 3G data STV 96 (650 MB data usage) from existing 16 days to 14 days and validity of 3G data STV 155 (1GB data usage) from existing 22 days to 20 days.
One need to note that, usually for a 1GB 3G data plan BSNL charges around Rs 198 with a lesser validity of 28 days. So the Data STV 444 seems to be a perfect mix of both data benefit and validity. The new 3G data plan will be available across pan India BSNL customer base from 1st October 2015.
