BSNL VPN Services Launched For Rs 390: But Doesn’t Support 4G Services, Only Available For 3G
In today’s age, many organizations are susceptible to cyber-attacks all the time. These attacks can cost firms very dearly. To avoid that trouble BSNL is offering Virtual Private Networks on its platform at a fixed monthly cost (FMC) of Rs.390 The main advantage of availing the services of the national service provider is its availability all across the length and breadth of the nation.
Available on the 3G network only.
Recently BSNL published an advertisement regarding the service. In that, it has specifically mentioned that the service had been launched for the organizations and the companies which require Virtual Private Networks. The advertisement also highlighted that the service would be available on the 3G network only. In the era when the nation is preparing for the launch of the 5G network it kind of sounds bizarre to normal Indian ears. But there might be more technicalities involved in offering the service on 3G. For example, the 4G services offered by the company are already in a very pity state. So instead of offering the VPN based on an irregular/not-so-trustworthy platform, BSNL seems to have chosen to rely on a strong 3G base.
What is Virtual Private Network? (VPN)
Now in the era of normalized Work from Home, the companies do not exist in a single place. They can be spread throughout the country with hundreds of computers sharing data. If this transmission of data is done on the public network, the data is always susceptible to be snatched away by hackers. The companies cannot afford to lose out on their sensitive data. Hence comes the Idea of Virtual Private Network (VPN) in the picture. VPN is a private protected network that provides strong security to your data and connects all your computers as if they have been connected through a single LAN. This offers more data security and privacy. The corporates which are sensitive about their data would definitely find the VPN services offered by BSNL suitable for their purpose.
