As per Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL), it will provide one month free access to corporate servers to encourage its employees to work from home. To this end, employees of companies that have subscribed to MTNL’s corporate servers and use its broadband connection can now avail access to their company’s servers at home free of cost.

The move comes in the wake of the 21-day nationwide lockdown to curb COVID-19 crisis.

MTNL usually charges Rs 2,000-Rs 2,500 per connection for such an access.

As per MTNL, many organisations have their main server on MTNL multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) network. Employees of such organisations who have MTNL broadband can access their office servers through MTNL virtual private network over broadband (VPNoBB).

Elsewhere, MTNL is also offering double data on all its broadband plans of landline and mobile for a month in Delhi and Mumbai. The telco is also doing away with installation charges for new customers opting for a copper cable based connection.
