The promotional "Work@Home" broadband provides five GB of data daily to all users at a speed of 10MBit / s. After 5 GB was consumed, the link speed decreased to 1Mbps.  According to the banner on the website of the company, the new deal refers to "current fixed customers without a high-speed BSNL service." 

You can access the high-speed Internet by plugging in your modem, according to the BSNL India website. To trigger the deal on request, the company has given free toll numbers.

Due to the difficulty of subscribers in locating retail stores to recharge their accounts, BSNL has also expanded the validity of their prepaid numbers. The incoming calls will continue until May 5th for all BSNL prepaid customers that have not been able to move to account during the lockout. BSNL has also introduced a toll-free billing helpline to repay subscribers.
