    I heard the bandwidth is very cheap if you could afford buying it in bulk. ACT and other Fiber ISP's can provide truly unlimited internet if they are willing to kill GB top ups but that constitutes a significant part of their revenue. There are a few ISP's offering truly unlimited in other markets where ACT is available but they are either small or insignificant so ACT doesn't bother to match their plans. TCCL is making use of its already deployed Fiber backbone that carries TV channels so we can expect a good competition if TCCL plays its cards right.

    Yeah its not that expensive to provide. Excitel gives 20 mbps without any FUP for 799 including taxes in Delhi and Hyderabad

    He also said he will be offering broadband independent from SCV. Let's see how it will turn out.

    Cherrinet is testing 1Gbps
    Source


    guess ACT will soon follow suit, the next big USP for Indian internet companies is going to be 1Gbps speed.

    That is amazing.

    But...

    What's the point of 1 Gbps if the data allowance is going to be 100 or 200GB and 512 Kbps post FUP. I mean they already charge 11 times more than Hathway for a terabyte of data.

    them revamping FUP is given since TIC is launching with those awesome plans, this 1 gbps is their card to stay ahead of TIC competition or any small players already in the market. April 14 is the day for internet for Chennai in more than one way :angel:

    Yeah I hope they price it just right. I don't think it's possible for ACT to provide a gigabit plan anytime soon because they use one ONT for seven or eight connections, predominantly. Cherrinet providing individual ONT to each user with Fiber cable terminating at the premises is having the edge.
