I live in a suburb of Tirupathi (Not Tirumala Hills but Tirupathi city).In my suburb, a local company provides what they say 256 kbps unlimited for Rs.400. I contacted users of the service to find that even though speed does not match dataone's, it is twice faster than reliance rconnect and slightly slower than dataone!But they (the ISP) are not using any wires. They are also not using wifi because reach is large. They are also not using satellite because it is costly. They are also not using cordect because I contacted midas communications, the company behind cordect, and they said they have not heard of any such company!I am confused what technology they are using. I heard the representative say that the equipment that local ISP is placing costs more than Rs.10,000.Do you have any idea of what technology they are using?Are they using some fixed wireless technology used by sify?I dont know anything about fixed wireless technology of sify other than what I read in sify website that says that they use fixed wireless technology.they tell that equipment costs more than Rs.10,000.But security deposit is Just Rs.2500 and activation charge is Rs.1000.they connect through usb and they will have a rectangle/square shaped antennae in roof top.Please help1)Tell me more about sify's fixed wireless technology2)tell me what technology is that isp using

maybe they're using Wifi. What requirements have they given for a customer to connect to their net? Generally any ISP specifies all the requirements like a LAN card, DSL modem etc... etc... What have they told you?

they tell that equipment costs more than Rs.10,000.But security deposit is Just Rs.2500 and activation charge is Rs.1000.they connect through usb and they will have a rectangle/square shaped antennae in roof top.they tell that equipment costs more than Rs.10,000.But security deposit is Just Rs.2500 and activation charge is Rs.1000.they connect through usb and they will have a rectangle/square shaped antennae in roof top.I very much suspect it would be fixed wireless used by sify.(because they give a square/rectangle antennae)Anyone knowing about fixed wireless of sify please give more details.This definitely is not wifi because they say it will reach 2- 3 kms.they also have a tower/mast above their building.(again, I must remember that people using that say it is not fast enough to catch speeds of bsnl but definetely hitting 256.)

They are using Wifi. Wifi can reach beyond 40 km with proper equipments and antennas. We do provide wireless connectivity between offices in place of leased line using Wifi technology in our city. B)
