BSNL has launched a new USIM exclusively for the 4G mobile network for only Rs 20 and is seen as the biggest plunge to compete with other providers. After the start of 2018, the state-owned company has been aggressively expanding the 4G services in several parts of India. According to sources, BSNL is planning to install 10,000 4G eNode-Bs in the North, East, South, and West Zones and for this purpose, the phase 8.4 tender has been finalized.
If you wish to migrate to 4G services, you should exchange the existing SIM card for the new 4G USIM. The main reason is that of the fact that you can’t access and work with the 4G network using the existing 2G and 3G SIM cards.
As part of the 4G launch, BSNL will only launch the new 4G USIM card and will work all smartphones. Moreover, the 4G USIM comes irrespective of memory size and are of fourth form factor, which is same as the existing 4G SIM cards provided by competing mobile service providers.
The main purpose behind the launch of the low-priced 4G SIM cards is to create an awareness among people about the benefits of the 4G network. With just Rs 20, customers will be able to experience the power of the 4G network. The company is hopeful of bringing new customers within the next few months. BSNL has already launched 4G services in Kerala and Karnataka and is gearing up to pull the plug all over India by the end of 2018.
Recently, BSNL has started a facility with which new customers will be able to subscribe to new landline and broadband connections via social media. The customers should make use of the relevant hashtag along with a message and a BSNL staff will be in touch with the customer to discuss the further steps. Industry analysts are of the opinion that the move is to compete with the likes of Reliance Jio, who has been aggressive on social media.
