BSNL 4G SIM cards up for grabs in India for an nominal amount


BSNL has started to provide 4G SIM cards across India for Rs 20. The state-owned company pushed the 4G services in February including remote areas in Kerala. The company is gearing up to launch the 4G services across India within the next few days.

If you would like to upgrade to 4G, you need to pay Rs 20 and obtain the 4G SIM card. This offer is applicable for both prepaid and postpaid customers. The main intention of the BSNL is to attract existing customers to 4G even before the official launch. The amount of Rs 20 is nominal and hence customers will be able to afford easily.

If you are a subscriber of BSNL, you can approach nearest BSNL office or mobile store and contain 4G SIM by paying the amount. The services will launch before the end of 2018. We expect the full rollout of 4G by January 2019.

The company is also preparing itself for the launch of the 5G services by the end of 2020. To recall, companies like Ericsson have already started to test drive 5G connectivity in India.

BSNL knows that the competition from Reliance Jio is intense and hence the Government-owned company should try to introduce the services immediately. The market scenario is that even companies like Airtel, Vodafone, and Idea are facing stiff competition from Ambani-owned Reliance Jio.

It is to be noted that Reliance is offering 4G services for a budget price. BSNL should not only reduce the cost but also introduce services such as Live TV to attract customers.
