As good as it is for BSNL to share the latest plan on Twitter, we do think they need to hire a proofreader for avoiding glaring grammatical error as in the image shared with the tweet.

Personalized Ring Bank Tone service (PRBT), Live Cricket Score, and More

One of the highlights of these special tariff vouchers is that they offer live cricket scores during the matches. It sends Cricket Alert (SMS) to the users in every 15 minutes to keep them updated when they are not able to watch the game live. Users also get to use the Personalized Ring Bank Tone service (PRBT) after the match finishes. This service allows users to choose any tune or song by downloading the MY BSNL Tune app from Google Play Store.

Well, BSNL is indeed trying to compete with Airtel, Jio, and Vodafone Idea by launching these STVs. Other telcos have also launched special plans for IPL 2019. As India is known for its love towards cricket, every telco is trying to woo the subscribers with skillfully tailored offers.
