Dear readers, please share your views and opinions about this latest STV 93 – which can be used to make Free Outgoing Calls and SMS on National Roaming – via comments with us.
For the BSNL Mithram Plan,the outgoing is charged at 1.2 ps/sec (72 ps/min) for local & 1.5 ps/sec (90 ps/min) for STD calls during roaming without any STV activation. The newly introduced voucher, STV93 guarantees 120 minutes resulting in an average call rate of 0.775 ps/min without considering the free SMS.
STV93 is giving a call rate of 77.5 ps/min which is not much better than the current offers. BSNL should introduce more voice STVs for roaming customers.
More stv roaming offers are required to reduce call rates. If so bsnl can gain new more customers
