Before launching the Dhan Dhana Dhan offer, Jio had to pull off its Summer Surprise scheme following Trai (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India)'s advice. In this plan, you can make calls to places like Hong Kong, Austria, Singapore, Belgium, Austria, Brazil, Italy, Poland, Malta, Luxemburg, Puerto Rico, Switzerland, Portugal and Taiwan at Rs 3 per minute.

The Rs 303 plan offered customers 1GB data per day, with speed being reduced to 128Kbps after running out of this daily FUP. This equates to just Rs. 1.23 per GB.

State-run BSNL on Friday announced new plans offering daily data usage limit of up to 3 GB, unlimited calling and 90 day validity with price ranging from Rs 333 to Rs 395. Vodafone also claims to be the first company to offer high-speed data for Indian customers.

BSNL's offers, meanwhile, are for 3G users and aimed at drawing customers by offering the cheapest data rates in the market. It is an older offer with data usage upgraded to 3GB from the previously announced 2GB/day. Notably, the bundled calls are limited only to the home circle, so charges will be levied for STD calls under this plan. It is also a 3G data plan with speed drop to 80kbps after crossing the FUP limit.

Finally, there's Nehle pe Dehla plan that gives 3000 BSNL to BSNL free minutes, 2GB data per day and 180 minutes of non-internet voice calls per month. The speeds remain 3G.

There is nothing better than this - 3 GB/day (speed restriction of 80 kbps after 3GB/day) from existing limit of 2 GB/day, R K Mittal, Director (CM) BSNL Board said.

Earlier this month the company said that it would offer free incoming calls during worldwide roaming on its network in 45 countries. Idea is also providing customers 1GB of free data as part of its "Acquisition Offer", Gadget 360 degree report said.

In the same plan, calls to countries like Japan, Israel, Pakistan, Denmark, South Korea and Argentina can be made at Rs 4.80 per minute. Earlier the FUP was 2GB per day. Recently Vodafone also provided i-RoamFree plan which offers free incoming roaming calls. This plan is a take on the "Dhan Dhana Dhan" plan offered by Reliance Jio. STV are BSNL's Special Tariff Vouchers, and it looks like the govt-owned teleco has woken up to the idea of offering a lot more data in order to retain its customers. Other benefits in the Rs. 349 pack include unlimited local and STD calls. The plan gives customers 3GB data per day, which comes to 270GB data over the 90 day period.
