New Delhi, June 25 (IANS) State-owned Mahanagar Telephone limited (MTNL) Friday signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) under which students can access the local area network of JNU using the operator’s 3G network.
MTNL has set up four additional 3G towers on the JNU campus to ensure good coverage and quality service. The students will have to pay only Rs.199 instead of Rs.599 per month to enjoy high speed internet browsing.
‘The capital expenditure for this is being incurred by MTNL as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility,’ said Sachin Pilot, minister of state for communications and information technology.
He cautioned MTNL and JNU on the possible misuse of the facility and asked to ensure safety and security of the network.
