Free BSNL Broadband For Work From Home
Since Govt has advised all private firms to opt for work from home, BSNL has decided to help the cause.
New and existing users can now avail one free month of high speed broadband, at no additional cost.
In fact, new users opting for copper cable based landline connection wont be charged installation fees as well, thereby giving a big boost to the idea of work from home.
Confirming this, BSNL Director (CFA) Vivek Banzal said, “Broadband service is being offered free of charge for one month to all citizens across the country, who have BSNL landline and do not have any broadband, so that they can use this service either to work from home, educate from home or anything that can minimise the need to move outdoor,”
However, customers opting for optical fiber will be required to pay for the installation charges. After a month of free usage, customers will moved to paid plans.
Jio Doubles 4G Data Benefits For This Plan
Meanwhile Reliance Jio too has chipped in, and decided to offer double data benefits to their users, for some of their plans.
The plans where users can get double data benefits are:
Rs 11, Rs 21, Rs 51 and Rs 101.
While Rs 11 plan used to provide 400MB of data, it will now provide 800MB data.
While Rs 21 plan used to offer 1 GB data, will now provide 2GB of data.
Rs 51 plan will now provide 6GB of data, which was 3GB earlier.
At the same time Rs 101 plan will now provide 12GB of data, which was 6GB earlier.
These plans will continue to provide 75, 200, 500 and 1000 minutes respectively to Jio and Non-Jio numbers, as before.
In a statement, Jio said, “Through these voucher upgrades Jio is extending help to the users and ensuring that Indians have access to uninterrupted, abundant and affordable data to meet their current connectivity needs,”
