This is not the first time that the BSNL (Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited) tied up with Amazon to give an annual free prime membership to its internet subscribers. In 2018, BSNL announced that it will give free Amazon Prime subscriptions to its broadband and postpaid plan holders. Vodafone and Airtel were also seen giving free Amazon Prime Membership to their subscribers who were in the postpaid plan. Airtel also gave free one year Amazon Prime Membership to its broadband subscribers.
BSNL launched the Bharat Fiber FFTH services in January 2019. The government-run company has a plan to give affordable internet access to almost every home in India, and this move was also seen as a counter to fight the Jio GigaFiber service that debuted last year in India.
