  1. Ofcourse jio is better in terms of service and recharge option. Jio is prepaid. One can change plan by rearching on expiry of current plan. Bsnl lags behind jio in terms of service and customer satisfaction. Went to local exchange they dont even know about ftth .

  2. Jio is definitely cheap and better than BSNL. I have both. For BSNL every month I've to shell out 90+gst for ONT modem whereas Jio doesn't charge anything for the Gateway Modem. If BSNL waives off this ONT rent, it will definitely be the best in all aspects.
