BT has started rolling out its 100Mbps broadband services to ten exchanges across the UK.
The service, marketed as BT Infinity option three, will give subscribers up to 100Mbps download speeds with up to 15Mbps upload.

The service comes with "unlimited" data usage and costs £35 per month with an 18-month contract.
It's like our Hayai 100mbps price but the thing here is unlimited.

Unlike other BT Infinity products which offer maximum speeds of 40Mbps downstream using fibre-to-the-cabinet technology, the 100Mbps service will use fibre-to-the-premises in order to deliver the faster speeds.

At the beginning of October, BT said it would begin using FTTP technology to deliver up to 300Mbps download speeds in 2012, and noted that it was already trialling speeds of up to 1Gbps in Kesgrave, Suffolk.


Super-fast broadband rival Virgin Media began offering customers packages with download speeds of up to 100Mbps in December 2010 using its cable-based service.

if u wanna compare..compare with the best so that u may aspire to reach that level..so that even if u fall short of that level (which u will) there is still considerable improvement..and 100 Mbps especially at that price ain't the best in the world.

So you want 100mbps unlimited for Rs 1100? Is it Good according to you? France is actually offering unlimited 100mb for 1100. Still Uk,US countries are way behind European countries WRT Broadband.

actually i would prefer this



$418 = 418*6.6 = 2758 INR/month for 1 Gbps or 1000 Mbps

and there are other ISP's in HKG also that are providing even cheaper 1 Gbps plans

Ofcourse in India only in my dreams..

I Hope we'l hopefully get 1Gbit in India by 2020 and 100mbps by 2017.
You have to just wait for more 6 years. :(

But its application depends on many factors.
The cost of peering in a particular country affects how much minimum will be the cost of a considered plan.
Especially in cities like Singapore, the bandwidth is comparatively cheap as compared to India.
I know the current ISP's are doing excessive pricing but due to several factors we're unable to do the same.

The question is when we do reach the 1 Gbit mark..will it be considered fast enough compared to what's offered in the rest of the world at that time? hope now it becomes a little more clear why i said that compare yourself with the best in the world..
