BSNL video calling now in south, east zones
State-run Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) on Monday launched video telephony service in south and east zones of the country in partnership with public sector company ITI and technology firm Click Telecom.
Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal while launching the service said the public sector undertaking should encash the opportunity in this sector.
Users of the service will have to pay Rs 2.5 for a 60 second call. BSNL is also offering unlimited calling facility for this service under 30-day plan costing Rs 2,200.
There are two other plans costing Rs 750 and Rs 350 for 30 days each. These plans will allow subscribers to make 900 and 150 minutes calls free respectively and thereafter they will be charged Rs 2.5 for each 60 second call.
“These are the initial plans and rates,” said BSNL CMD RK Upadhyay, adding that rates in future will depend on response from the market.
