BSNL Fights Back Jio Scare – Activates Record 2.95 million New Connections in March!  by Mohul Ghosh


At a time when the nation is swept by Jio mania, and the subsequent battle among telecom operators, state-run BSNL has been quietly fighting their own battle, and to increase their user base.And if based on March reports, it is clear that BSNL has clearly staged a coup here.As per reports coming in, BSNL has successfully activated 2.95 million new pre-paid connections in the month of March 2017, which is quite a feat in itself. Especially because April was the month Jio started offering their paid Prime subscriptions. This clearly means that BSNL has attracted a niche user base of their own, based on attractive plans and offerings, which were mainly launched to counter the onslaught of Jio, Airtel and other private telcos.
