The report said that there will be a 10 percent increase in data traffic, as people are working from home.

It said, "As a pure-play telco Bharti is a bigger beneficiary."

The report said that at present, India has 630 million mobile users. This includes both 3G/4G, while there are 19 million fixed broadband users. The report claims that it is expected that there is only 6 percent of people using the broadband lines during work from home, and 70 percent will be using their mobile networks.

Meanwhile, Reliance Jio has launched a new plan where it is offering 10 Mbps speed to its new broadband speed. The telco has also announced that it is offering double data benefits to its customers. Apart from that, the BSNL plan is offering 5GB data to its landline users, while ACT Fibernet is now offering 300 Mbps speed with its basic plans.
