- With the lockdown being extended till May 3, the telco decided to extend the validity of Work@Home plan.
- The plan offers 5GB free data at 10Mbps speed and is available to existing BSNL landline users only.
State-owned telco Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has increased its Work @ Home broadband plan till May 19. The development was noted by Only Tech.
The plan was launched last month in the backdrop of nationwide lockdowns with many people working from home.
The plan was supposed to be valid until April 14. Now, with the lockdown being extended, the telco decided to increase the validity of the Work @ Home plan as people will continue working from home.
This will help contain the coronavirus in India which has now seen over 27,000 confirmed cases.

To activate the broadband plan, a landline user of BSNL should dial on BSNLs toll-free number -- 1800-345-1504. Once this is done, the existing users can request the work@home plan which will get activated.
The plan is available in all circles including Andaman and Nicobar.

With this move, BSNL plans to encourage landline users to move towards its broadband connections.
