BSNL (Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited), the state-run telecom operator has discontinued the Amazon Prime subscription offer that was complimentary with some of its post-paid and broadband plans. BSNL released this offer back in 2018 and provided a year’s worth of Amazon Prime subscription.

The telecom operator’s Kerala circle announced on its website that the Amazon Prime subscription offered with broadband tariff plans over Rs 750 is no longer available. In response to a user’s tweet, the BSNL Kerala account replied that “The Amazon Prime one year subscription promotional offer is discontinued till further notice.”

What is BSNL Amazon Prime subscription offer?

BSNL started offering it’s post-paid and broadband customers with an annual subscription of Amazon Prime without incurring any extra charges. Post-paid users who subscribed to tariff vouchers of more than Rs 399 and broadband plans of Rs 750 were eligible to avail the benefits of the complimentary offer.

In 2019, the telecom operator also started offering the Prime membership to BSNL Bharat Fiber users who are on Rs 777 tariff plan and above.

While BSNL has discontinued its complimentary offer for annual Amazon Prime subscription, a spokesperson told NDTV Gadgets360 that the telecom operator is looking to renew the licensing contracts suggesting that the offer may be revived soon.

Naturally, many existing and new subscribers weren’t able to activate their free Amazon Prime subscription and took to Twitter to lodge their complaints, only for the company to reveal that the offer has been scrapped off until further notice.

Having said that, the BSNL Amazon prime subscription offer could be back very soon as hinted by the company spokesperson.

BSNL recently announced that it is extending its work from home broadband plan availability till May 19, 2020. The plan offers new and existing customers 5GB data per day at 10Mbps.
