  BSNL giving free 2GB of data to customers with new 4G SIM upgrade
Posted by: nairrk - 7 minutes ago - Forum: Cellular Services - No Replies

BSNL may be very late to the party, but is finally implementing 4G services and connectivity on its network. The operator recently got approval to implement the next-generation network, and did a ‘soft launch‘ of its services in Idukki district in Kerala for testing purposes. The gradual roll out will take some months, but certain districts and regions are now getting onto the 4G bandwagon.

According to a report by TelecomTalk, BSNL is sweetening the deal for its existing subscribers that are upgrading to a 4G SIM to use the new network. The operator is offering 2GB of free 4G data for all users who upgrade to the new SIM card that is capable of receiving the 4G network. While users can continue using their old SIM cards, these are limited to 3G connectivity and getting a new SIM is needed to enable high-speed data access and connectivity on the newer network.

The report further states that BSNL is upgrading its existing 3G infrastructure to 4G, while 2G connectivity will remain in place for legacy users and voice calling, at least until BSNL is able to roll out VoLTE services. This will necessitate the change of SIM card for users, which can annoy some customers. To make it worth their while, the extra 2GB of data is being offered.

BSNL is reportedly rolling out 4G services gradually, with certain parts of Gujarat and Maharashtra in line to receive connectivity soon, or are already on 4G networks. The network upgradation will benefit the many BSNL users who are currently limited to 3G connectivity, and allow the company to once again compete against private operators such as Jio, Airtel, Vodafone and Idea Cellular that have been offering 4G services for some time now.

MUMBAI: Star India has doubled the level of promotion and broadcast coverage for Khelo India Youth Games, Maharashtra 2019. The coverage of the upcoming season will include live telecast in 5 languages (Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and English) and telecast of all 18 disciplines for both age groups. The games will be telecast live across Star Sports Network and Hotstar.

Khelo India Youth Games, which are a part of the Khelo India programme, will be held from 9-20 January 2019 in Pune, Maharashtra.

Star India MD Sanjay Gupta said, “The first edition of Khelo India exceeded expectations and instilled an aspiration for sports amongst the youth in India and now, with “5 minute aur”, we are aiming to trigger more pro sport conversations to make India adopt sports as a way of life. The campaign calls for the Indian sports enthusiast to not only support their heroes but also work towards emulating their feats.

“Staying true to our commitment of bringing the best in class sports experience to the passionate Indian sports fan, we will broadcast Khelo India Youth Games in 5 languages this season along with LIVE telecast of 9 disciplines,” he further added.

Star Sports will produce and broadcast Khelo India Youth Games Maharashtra 2019 in five languages – English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada. Scheduled to take place at Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex in Pune from 9-20 January 2019, Khelo India Youth Games, Maharashtra 2019 will see over 10,000 participants from 29 states and 7 Union Territories. The games will bring to life by over 6200 athletes, 1800 Technical Officials, 1000 volunteers and 1000 personnel working behind the scenes.

The event has been conceptualised to revive the sports culture in India at grass-root level by building a strong framework for all sports played in the country, the upcoming season of Khelo India Youth Games will be held across 18 sporting disciplines in the Under-17 and Under– 21 age categories.

Aiming to build on the inaugural edition of the Khelo India School Games, Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports along with Star Sports kick-started the countdown to Khelo India Youth Games, with an appeal to encourage India to play more- with the evocative ‘#5MinuteAur’ campaign.

The campaign has a call to action, taking the Khelo India movement forward, featuring – Manu Bhaker, Jeremy Lalrinnunga, Saurabh Chaudhary, Lakshya Sen, Esha Singh, Tababi Devi, Srihari Natraj and champions Mary Kom, Sushil Kumar amongst others bringing childhood playground memories to life. The #5MinuteAur campaign created this year has a simple insight, we are all born with an inherit instinct to play, kids and adults alike.

In its inaugural edition, Khelo India had the message “Kheloge Kudoge Banoge lajawaab” encouraging more kids to play every day, it was an effort towards changing an age-old belief. Building on the core of this message through the #5MinuteAur campaign, Star Sports and the ministry wants India to encourage kids to play for those extra 5 minutes.

The 5 minutes is symbolic, with an assumption that if each child plays a little bit longer, we will add a billion minutes of play every day, that has the potential to translate into 50 medals for the country.

Portraying this five-minute agreement between a mother and a child, the aim with #5MinuteAur is to spark a fire in every enthusiast in India to strive for better through sports. Establishing the message that sports builds and defines our personalities, the more we play the better we get. The manifesto, “Hum Aaj Aur Khelenge Toh Kal Aur Jeetenge” is true not just for the sport we play, but for life itself.

“The success of Khelo India School Games is a testimony to the hunger and multitude of sporting talent in India. Buoyed by the terrific response for Khelo India School Games and with an aim to increase participation in sports across all age groups, we have not just added two sports this year but the games will also be played under two age categories U-17 and U-21 to allow even more enthusiasts to participate and flourish. The ‘5 minute aur’ campaign for the Khelo India Youth Games 2019 to be hosted in Pune, Maharashtra is a reflection of the immense strides we’ve made and the journey that lies in front of us to make India a truly sporting nation. We hope it will inspire India to work towards incorporating sports as a way of life,” said Minister for Sports and Youth Affairs (IC) Col. Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore.

MUMBAI: Over the top (OTT) platform Eros Now will premiere this year’s hit movies ‘Manmarziyaan’ and ‘Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi’ on 12 December before their satellite telecast.

  BSNL’s Rs 2,099 prepaid plan now offers 6.1GB daily data
Posted by: nairrk - 12-09-2018, 11:28 AM - Forum: Cellular Services - No Replies

BSNL is reportedly extending the validity of its ‘Bumper Offer’ till January 31, 2019. As per TelecomTalk, the telco’s offer has been tweaked a bit, and it now offers 2.1GB of extra data every day – down from 2.2GB per day. Additionally, eligibility for BSNL’s Bumper Offer has now been expanded to two more prepaid plans. Read on to find out all the details.

Earlier, 11 prepaid plans were eligible for BSNL’s Bumper Offer. But now, the company has added its Rs 1,699 and Rs 2,099 annual prepaid plans to the eligibility list. These two plans are valid for 365 days, and offer 2GB and 4GB data per day respectively. With the additional benefits of the Bumper Offer, the Rs 1,699 and Rs 2,099 will now offer 4.1GB and 6.1GB of data per day.

BSNL’s Bumper Offer was first rolled out back in September this year. The idea was to offer additional data above and beyond what is on available in the plan. So for instance if you subscribed to a plan offering 1GB data per day, the Bumper Offer would boost the mobile data available to 3.1GB per day. The initial list of eligible prepaid plans included Rs 186, Rs 429, Rs 485, Rs 666, Rs 999, and STVs like Rs 187, Rs 333, Rs 349, Rs 444 and Rs 448.

Recently, the state-run company revised its broadband plans available across the country. The revision saw a five-time increase in data offerings, but also an introduction of a daily FUP limit. The broadband plans seeing a revision included Rs 675, Rs 845, Rs 999, Rs 1,199, Rs 1,495, Rs 1,745, and Rs 2,295.

With the revision, the Rs 675 and Rs 845 plans offer 10GB data per day at 10 Mbps, which will drop to 2 Mbps after FUP. The Rs 999 plan now offers 15GB daily data at 10 Mbps speeds, while the Rs 1,199 plan offers 20GB daily data. Lastly, the high-priced Rs 1,495, and Rs 1,745 plans now offer 25GB, and 30GB daily data per day at 15 Mbps. The Rs 2,295 plan offers 35GB daily data at 24 Mbps speeds.
