  1. Hi,
    I am using 750 UN limited plan since august last year,but paying 900/month.i feel its not worth to me.we r not using daily ,we utilise only some time wile PC to PC conversation ..so please suggest me some suitable plane like (prepaid ) that i can jump to instead of preferring to other broad band..
    thank you
    waiting for Ur suggestion

  2. Validity Vouchers for limited plans
    Voucher Type MRP Validity in Days (for account)
    BB Validity 100 100 30
    BB Validity 150 150 45
    BB Validity 250 250 60

    Who is going to buy ‘250’ for 60 days? (‘2’*’100’ will be valid for 60 days)
    Is it another stupidity or printing mistake?

  3. Hi,
    I am using the 750 UL postpaid plan now. I didn’t found any use with these plans and in order to compare the plan is 900 UL i.e. 150 rs extra than the normal.

    This is the reason why BSNL is poor in marketing and creating plans as users desired.

    Correct me if i am wrong
