In my opinion, no need to deduct tax on such expenses. I have found one discussion also regarding this matter, please refer the same.

The leaseline charges/internet charges , telecommunication charges paid are only for use of such connection and do not fall within the provisions of section 194-I ,194-C and 194-J of the Act.
