Another telecom service provider has given us a little heartache with its hike in tariff rate. The latest company to join this tariff hike bandwagon is none other than BSNL. Well, we did not expect this from a govt. based operator (is any body listening?!).
But there is little twist in the tale, they have maintained a little bit of decency and took the indirect route. They have decreased the number of validity days instead of hiking the rates directly. However, they have increased the cost of some STV. Whatever it is- our pocket is the only sufferer!!
It’s not over yet- they have also announced a hike in their prepaid per second plan- 1.2p/sec will be charged for calls to all other networks. For the lifetime prepaid users- the charges will be 49p/min. These will be effective from coming 5th August 2011. Till then, enjoy the last few days of current tariff plans!
