BSNL Launches A Free Work-From-Home Internet Plan
India’s oldest telecom company BSNL has announced Work@Home broadband plan free of cost. The plan has been announced as several offices and workplaces are now being shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic, forcing most organizations to announce a work-from-home policy.
The plan is also in line with government’s initiative to encourage people to work from their homes as much as possible during the outbreak and practice effective social distancing.
The new plan will be available to all circles in India, including Andaman and Nicobar region. However, this plan is only for users who use a BSNL landline connection. They are the ones who can avail this scheme for free. Even if a user has a landline connection and not a broadband connection yet, they can avail the offer. This move might also push more people towards getting a BSNL broadband subscription.
Under the new plan, users will get 5GB data daily at 10Mbps and 1Mbps unlimited data after that. It doesn’t have any limits on uploads and downloads. The new plan doesn’t have any monthly charges or deposits and BSNL won’t charge an installation charge if your get broadband access on a landline connection. The voice calls in the new pack will remain same as the existing landline plans.
The scheme would be available for a month after activation. Those without a BSNL connection can activate any regular BSNL landline plan and the plan would be available to these new consumers as well.
