Hi,
Does anybody have Spectranet's FTTH connection in Chennai? If so, could you share the area in which you have it along with speed and ping tests to a US based server? Any comments on reliabiltiy and customer service would be great as well.
Thanks

Hello there!

You can share your location and I can get it checked from our team if we provide services in your area or not.
Regarding ping data, I can share ping from one of our core machines in Chennai (and data won't really be different if you check as end user) :)

Hi Anurag,
Thanks for the response...appreciate it. Airtel's pings on ADSL seem to be slightly better (or comparable). I am currently on an 8Mbps 125GB connection (was offered this plan a few weeks ago)...The highest plan I see on FOX is for 96GB and at a similar price of my current Airtel connection. So, I think I am going to wait and watch to see if ACT expands into my area (or perhaps Spectranet offers higher FUP plans in future) :)
