State-run telecom operator, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited or BSNL, has managed to beat private telcos Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea with its Rs 198 prepaid data STV. For the unaware, BSNL has a data-only STV of Rs 198 and it now offers a whopping 108GB of data benefit for a period of 54 days. In contrast, Airtel is offering a Rs 175 data-only plan for prepaid users which provides just 6GB of data benefit, while Reliance Jio has a Rs 251 data recharge that ships with 2GB daily data for 51 days. Vodafone Idea is also providing a similar Rs 175 data recharge which again ships with 6GB of data benefit for a period of 28 days. That said, BSNL’s data-only STV of Rs 198 is the go-to plan for users looking for a heavy data plan under Rs 200. Do make a note that the price of Rs 198 STV may differ with every circle, so make sure you check the benefits of the plan on recharge portal.
