State-owned telco, BSNL is no longer selling its plans to Amazon Prime. Many users took to Twitter and shared their frustration when they visited the website and tried to check for BSNL’s Amazon Prime offer; they got a 404 error. Last week the service was discontinued. This was reported via the telcos Kerala website, which notes that “The amazon prime subscription is no longer available along with all broadband plans above Rs 750.” The same message was posted in the telcos Kerala Twitter page. This news was also verified by TelecomTalk via BSNL Kerala circle GM.
Amazon’s Website Doesn’t Show Anything as Well
The BSNL-related bid is no longer available in the FAQ section of Amazon’s website. At the moment redirects were set in the deactivated links. At the same time the FAQ and T&C are still available on BSNL’s site. Earlier the customers who opted for the Rs 399 and above or Rs 745 and above BSNL postpaid plan or landline plans used to get Amazon Prime worth one year at no extra cost. But that deal is not open any more. There’s no clarification as to whether the telco and Amazon will put the deal together again.
BSNL’s Efforts For Helping Users Work From Home on This Pandamic
At the time of the global pandemic BSNL was very supportive and dedicated to its customers. During the first shutdown the telco had launched a program called Work@Home. And if you don’t get a one year free subscription to Amazon Prime, you’ll get regular data benefits from the telco under the Work@Home package. For the people who are already BSNL’s customers do not have to pay any fees for making use of the program on their own. The customers benefiting from this plan can get 5 GB of daily data at 10 Mbps speed. Upon exhaustion of the 5 GB files, your browsing speed will be reduced to 1 Mbps.
