Jio offers a speed of 64 Kbps once the high-speed quota is exhausted. Additionally, BSNL is also offering free caller tune by default with this plan. The unlimited calls include all local calls, all std calls and all roaming incoming, outgoing calls. On the other hand, BSNL is already offering 128kbps of data speed. Earlier, if the data limit was reached, the subscriber either had to wait for the clock to strike 12 AM or buy a small recharge plan. All they need to pay is Rs 99 per month.

This new landline centric plan has been designed for those, who are heavy voice users, and need an economical solution for the same. But as reported few days back, BSNL is losing their market share at a fast speed, and past year along around 1.5 lakh landline users ditched BSNL. BSNL has also many plans in which the telecom operator is only offering free, unlimited calling.

Interestingly, Airtel added around 6000 new landline users in the month of December, 2017, and their growth rate in this niche is admirable. Vodafone and Idea Cellular do not have any post FUP speed, but seeing the trend, they might bring it soon.

While BSNL is focussing on the landline niche, Airtel has slowly but gradually started exploring other domains of telecom services. Now, users will still retain internet access, but at a lowered speed of 128 Kbps.

BSNL just announced a plan worth Rs 118 that offers unlimited voice calls along with data incentives. Government-owned PSU, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) is going against private telecom operators especially Reliance Jio with its latest prepaid tariff plan of Rs 98, with which it's offering 39GB of data for 26 days under Rs 100. For instance, the Rs 199 prepaid plan, carries a data cap of 1.4GB for a day.

Airtel users will now be able to avail speeds of 128Kbps after exhausting their daily data limit.
