Hi Anand,
I am also staying near to your area and interested in vibrant net broad band as none of other ISPs are available in my street.
Can you please share your experience with Vibernet ?

Thanks!

Vibrantnet
Hi there,
I am from Chitlapakkam (near Tambaram New Bus Stand) and i have been using vibrantnet since a few months now.
Few points :
> Their website is vibrantnet.in but you wont find anything googling for it !!!! (i still dont understand how a company that can be an ISP and not host a basic website with their contact info and basic plan info?!$#@)
> We used to have services from Zylog's Wi5 earlier (they were sort of cheapest prepaid service in the area earlier and we tried it a while) and the same router works for vibrantnet.in supposedly, vibrantnet has taken over from wi5. I had searched a lot and looks like zylog is a big banner but still, the same story. they havent said much about having withdrawn wi5 services in chennai and still worse, their website directs you to wi5's home page which doesnt exist.
> At the moment, i am using their basic plan, costing around 700 pm, gives 10 GB FUP and unlimited access beyond that @ 256 kbps . applies to 31 days from date of recharge.
> Salient (!) Features :
>> It is a dialup broadband connection. unless you have a third party router that supports such connections be auto dialled, u dont have an always on connection. (I have a buffalo wireless router which is not supported).
>> As said before, they dont have a proper website (just a single jpeg file fortunately to see the company logo)
>> You can recharge only throught their agents they dont have online payment or similar options (obviously website still under progress!!!)
>> Rarely we do have outages (for only a few hours or a day- faced outage probably 2 or 3 times in 3 months)

Other than the above, overall, i am satisfied for the money paid.

Thanks a lot Rajesh, they are useing same wires, which were lying down since shutdown of wi5, and providing connections in medavakkam.
I will go ahead with this provider based on your feedback. 2-3 times in 3 months quite good compared to what I am facing with BSNL evdo right now, I am not getting any signal 15days in a month, and still paying 840 bucks!!

I would think this might be a better option to wireless internet. these guys use cable tv like (old tech i suppose) cables , yes mostly laid down by Wi5.
again, it would be easier if they have cables laid in your area already, based on your agent's word to return in 3 days i assume they must have some kind of network in your area.
you can opt for the basic package and if u had a connection in your previous residence, just use the same username and same router. just tell them you would need kind of a prepaid connection with change of address. if yours was a prepaid connection ealirer u dont have any hassle, u can topup for one month only and try it out. or else they might charge you for 3 months on a new package which still you could go for a basic plan to try it out.
i topped up my connection for one month and found it ok, currently am on fourth month of their services... (i do still pay monthly havent opted for longer term plans yet).

Hi Guys,
Apologies for not being able to get back. I have been using Vibrant for the past 50 days. I have opted for the 2 Mbps plan and after the Fair Usage limit was crossed, the connection switched to 256Kbps and it stayed there at 256 Kbps and even after I entered the 2nd month of my subscription the speed did not get back to what is was promised to be. when I tried reaching the customer care it said "SWITCHED OFF". Seems they have a mobile phone for handling customer calls.
The one good thing about Vibrant is there was not big outages for the past 50 days of my usage. If i could say precisely, I should have had downtime a total duration of 2 hours for the entire 50 days which is way better than any of the connections I have used so far. So to conclude, if you are not a heavy user crossing the FUP, then Vibrant would a best option.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Having said about Vibrant above, I happened to come across another wireless service provider named Tridax solutions, who is based out of Selaiyur. Seems to offer quite few plans with good FUP. Seems my neighbor is planning to get a connection from them. Similar to Vibrant, Tridax too doesn't seem to have a proper website. They seem to have an e-mail address created with GMAIL ([email protected]). Will try to switch to them if I hear good feedback from my neighbor. The sales rep who was here around, has promised me to provide a demo line so that I can use and decide whether to switch over to that. Will write up more soon..
Thank you.
Well

Hi,
I am planning to go for Vibrant net ISP. But they are not providing wifi modems. Also since they are providing cable modems, I couldn't find it in stores to purchase. Hence i am planning to buy a wifi router (without modem).
Can any one who are using vibrantnet share the wifi router model which is compatible with Vibrantnet routers?
