Thiruvananthapuram: Following the outbreak of COVID-19, internet service providers in Kerala, on Thursday agreed to step up the network capacity by 30 to 40 percent, to meet the demand arising from the situation, especially in view of spurt in work-at-home mode.

Numerous IT companies in the state have allowed their employees to work from home in the wake of 14 cases of COVID -19 being reported and about 3000 people under observation at homes and in hospitals.

The decision to step up capacity was taken at a meeting of representatives of various telecom service providers in Kerala Circle and officials of the Telecommunication Department convened by the Secretary, Electronics and IT.
