With the good infrastructure in place, only BSNL can serve with reasonable tariff in long term.
Others may offer free today and charge hefty one day.
#BSNL BSNL is truly playing the role of a tariff regulator in the Telecom sector in India. Like we can't think of a society without Govt School ,Govt Hospital. Similarly we can't think of Telecom Industry without a Govt Company like #BSNL. #Switch_to_BSNL #IndianeedBSNL— Rajesh D Yakkundi (@rajesh_dy) October 18, 2019
At this juncture, Reliance Jio has made public its decision to impose 6 paise per second Interconnect Usage Charge (IUC) on users making calls to non-Jio networks. The telco has also come out with a list of IUC-specific recharge plans for prepaid customers. It states that it would also compensate customers with extra data. This trend is viewed by a certain section of telecom enthusiasts, as leading to a competitive trend from other telcos as well.
