Tikona has launched a new set of plans across the country. These are cheaper and provide more Data usage.



Details

Incidently, Tikona is going bigger for Andhra Pradesh as they have even cheaper plans lined up. I personally just called up the customer care and asked them to change my plan to HYDM2048 plan which gives 2Mbps upto 50GB and 'about' 512kbps beyond.

Max PC Registrations 2/3 is a reason enough for me to not to even consider them....

Connecting multiple PCs/laptops/phones through a single Wifi router counts as just 1 PC. The system captures the MAC address of your router and considers it as 1 system.

Ignore that.. its just an approximation. Plus if you pay for 6months in advance, there is zero installation charge.

Yeah, why not? It saves you installation charges. And yes, always pay online or by cheque. Never by cash unless its in their office!

Yes, that's not a good idea. They have given contract to manage account system. I receive couple of call every month even though I cleared all dues with collection agent and he issued a receipt for clearing payments.

When I asked them to check system when I get a call, they tell me they do not have any update about my account. One day, I asked about email to send a scanned copy of clearance. They have given one third party email apart from tikona.in domain. It seems it is being handled by third party.

Even technicians come at our place are not hired by Tikona. They are from any third party firm which provides these kind of services. They are hired by Gemini Communication.

Here you can see guide provided to technician from Gemini

Connecting multiple PCs/laptops/phones through a single Wifi router counts as just 1 PC. The system captures the MAC address of your router and considers it as 1 system.

I don't think so. I experienced what you are saying. It scans all MAC address of system whether it is connected to switch or connected after wifi router.
Their system powered by Inventum is capable to scan all list of MACs connected to connection.

No one competes with Beam Tele. I don't know about service and performance of it but from tariff, I think it is cheapest one with high speed.
Beam telecom earned good repo in a short span and also fear in all ISP. All ISPs consider presence of Beam tele while deciding tariff for customers and all ISP offer cheaper tariff to AP customers than other circle customers. Tikona is not the first which launched different cheap tariff for AP circle. BSNL was the first, I think. Because of Beam, BSNL lost a lot.


I hope Beam will come all over the nation with cable line. I hate wireless broadband. I experienced a lot issues with wireless connectivity. I still have no choice and alternative for wireless broadband.
I have to rely but when cable lines come to place, I will throw wireless CPE in the garbage.

I have currently connected one Desktop, two laptops and a mobile simultaneously. The desktop is wired while the other three are on wifi. When one logs in to the Tikona portal, and check for MAC addresses, only the MACs of the desktop and router are detected.

Remember that when you connect through a router, all LAN connections how a single MAC and all Wifi show a single MAC address.
