 State owned telecom company BSNL is working to bring back customers back to its landline operations. For this, it is betting big on its recently launched plan 49. Promoted under the tag line 'Experience LL 49 Plan', a new customer opting for this plan is assured of a host of benefits,according to a news report published in Times of India.

Once the core of all telecommunication, landlines have gradually taken back seat with advent of mobile telephony.
 
The benefits include, free installation for starters, a free prepaid BSNL SIM card, and six months from installation, the connection is converted to the general plan of the area concerned. The offer launched on August 15 is valid for 90 days.
 
With BSNL also having launched unlimited free calls to any network for 24-hours on all Sunday since August 15, a landline customer now has the opportunity to make calls free from 9pm on Saturday to 7am on Monday, including the general free night calling offer from 9pm to 7am every day, the report added.
 
"This will be an attractive proposition for customers who prefer to get in touch with their loved and dear ones and weekends is the time when people are generally free," says G R Ravi, general manager, Dakshina Kannada telecom district.
