Hi,
OK, I was wondering --How does Sify broadband work?-- :D

They have given the big picture here ofcourse sify
But what about the details.

Like for eg. I live in an apartment complex. I came to hear that there's a hub on some khamba (pole) right outside the apartment gate. Does it mean that, that hub serves only the people in my apartment complex?

And where is the Subscriber unit then that's supposed to be on every roof. There certainly isn't any on my building's roof lol, not that many customers here. So my guess is 1 SU is futher divided into sub networks through hubs , atleast in my case.

And what about the computers that are seen on clicking on the Network Neighbourhood icon? Are they the ones behind my hub too? *ponders*

Here's hoping a discussion that would bring about a White Paper on how Sify broadband works ;)

the best thing in sify is the WAN , now i can play games with my friends on LAN.and also copy files from the comps which are not "firewalled" like the ones in internet cafesi downloaded more from LAN than the net(cant bcoz of frequent disconnection)BBCLIENT s*ckS!

hmm, is it a WAN or a LAN. They say a WAN is a network spread across very large distances, like a whole city or many states.And,what's that :eek:. You can play LAN games thru sify!!! This looks like a solid advantage :D So we can play multiplayer games like Quake etc on the Sify LAN .
