ACT Fibernet launches First 1Gbps broadband service in India

Hyderabad becomes India’s first city to get 1Gbps broadband service

ACT Fibernet on Thursday became the first ever Indian broadband service provider to launch 1Gbps (gigabit per second) wired broadband internet service with a Fair Usage Policy (FUP) limit of 1TB (terabyte) in Hyderabad. With this launch, Hyderabad becomes the first Gigabit city of India. The service is being made available at a starting price of Rs. 5,999 per month (exclusive of taxes).

The speed is considered to be 400 times faster than the average internet speed of 2.5 Mbps in India. For now, ACT claims that with the new 1Gbps plan, it is majorly targeting start-ups, retail outlets and other internet companies, and claims that the new service will disrupt and lead technological growth in the country. With these speeds, users can download a full movie in a matter of seconds.

ACT pointed out that high-speed gigabit connections will require a minimum PC specification consisting of an “Intel Core i7 processor 2.5Ghz, 8GB of RAM, with a 64-bit OS and 1Gbps LAN/Ethernet port.”

ACT Fibernet is also planning to launch its 1 Gbps wired internet service in 10 other cities soon, including Bengaluru, Chennai, Coimbatore, Delhi, Eluru, Guntur, Nellore, Tirupati, Vijayawada, and Visakhapatnam.

With over 65% market share, ACT Fibernet said that it is the largest broadband provider in twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. Also, with a customer base of 1.12 million, ACT Fibernet is India’s 3rd largest wired broadband operator in the country. Headquartered in Bangalore, ACT currently provides fiber Internet in 11 cities across India. In the United States, the Google Fiber is providing the same speed as 1Gbps for selected cities.

The company said that a few cities across the world can claim as being ‘Giga enabled’, certainly not at this scale. This launch places Hyderabad in league of select cities in the world that can claim of such futuristic technology. Giga speeds will allow downloads from the internet faster than transferring data from a USB drive.
