ACT to bring the 1Gbps Broadband service in india
Indian broadband service provider ACT has launched 1Gbps broadband connections for users in the country – making it the first local ISP there to do so.
The ACT is claims to be the third largest broadband service provider in India, is rolling out its 1Gbps broadband service in Hyderabad, the capital of the southern state of Telangana and a major hub for IT businesses in the country. That’s the same speed offered by Google Fiber in selected US cities, and 10x the speed offered to consumers by most rival Indian ISPs.
It’ll come with a monthly subscription fee of Rs. 6,900 ($105 usd, inclusive of taxes), along with a bandwidth cap of 1TB for uploads and 1 TB for downloads.
For reference, the company’s 100Mbps plans start at Rs. 2,000 ($30 usd) per month with a cap of 250GB, while annual subscriptions to streaming video services Netflix and Hotstar start at Rs. 6,000 ($92 usd) and Rs. 1,200 ($18 usd) respectively.
With that, ACT has beaten megacorporation Reliance to the punch at bringing gigabit internet to India; when the multi-vertical giant launched its 4G network in the country with the promise of free voice calls last September, it also noted that it planned to roll out 1Gbps broadband services in 100 major cities. As of last December, India placed 105th in the global ranking for broadband speeds, with an average of 4.1Mbps across the country.
Do you really need a 1Gbps connection though? Well, it depends. If you’ve got several family members streaming high-res video and playing games simultaneously, it might make sense to look into getting one.
