TDS is not deductible on services using technology -- telephone charges, Internet charges, cable TV, leased lines. Payments for use of standard facilities by the public at large in which some form of technical service is inherent are not covered under section 194J. It has also been held in the case of Skycell Communications Ltd. v. Deputy CIT[2001] 251 ITR 53 (Mad.).

Please go through the below link for the abovementioned case law:-

TDS will be applicable if the telephone line or the internet line is leased. As per Income tax act TDS is applicable on Leased lines. So check if you fall within the ambit of same you will have to deduct the TDS
