BSNL’s best 3G postpaid data plans for internet users

BSNL mobile postpaid data plans are among the most economical 3G plans in the telecom industry. Tariffs are same for both 2G & 3G, means both can be used interchangeably.

BSNL 3G mobile prepaid data plans

BSNL 3G data plans are cheaper as compare to other operators. But due to various internet recharge options user get confused that which one they should select. In this article, I will explain how to choose the best plan from available options.

I have divided all BSNL data packs into three categories according to the free usage limit. In less than 1GB level, there are five good tariffs. It is best for those who have lesser internet usage per month and also having other alternatives to access the internet like Wi-Fi connection at Home or Office. They can try these plans. I think Rs 56/- for 21 days may be the best option for them.

Let’s come to 1 Gigabyte usage category. For this, you have a lot of options depending upon the validity of days. You do not have any plan that has 30 days validity. But these are economical as compared to other operators. If you’re per month usage is 2 Gigabyte then both 155 & 239 best to select. The 239 STV will give you Rs 80/- balance also so effectively it costs you Rs 150 for 1 Gigabyte.

Now let’s see the higher usage data packs which also have high costs. Plans like 444 & 451 are good for 1.5 & 1GB per month users. But you have to pay the advance amount for two months.
