Bangalore is considered as an IT capital of India. However, Bangalore residents do know that getting a good internet connection is not that easy. Most of the providers stick to the most important areas and do not have any plans of expansion. Others provide bad broadband internet and make us wonder if dial-up was a better option.
Some of the top providers include:
1. Airtel Broadband
2. Tata Indicom Broadband
3. Reliance Broadband
Airtel Broadband Bangalore
Airtel Broadband is one of the best internet providers in terms of speed and reliability. The download speed is excellent and the tariff is economical catering to both residential users and business users.
However, the broadband connection is available mostly to very prominent areas or residents close to a main road. Though Airtel was one of the early broadband service providers in Bangalore, still there are not much progress in expansion and reach to cover more broadband customers. Please check with Airtel Broadband customer service to know about connectivity in your location.
Tata Indicom Broadband Internet Bangalore
Tata Indicom has recently come up with many new plans for heavy and light internet users in Bangalore. Tata Indicom tariff is basically categorized as prepaid and postpaid and provide both wireless and cable broadband internet.
Though Tata Indicom provides a wider coverage, some areas have very slow internet connections. This usually occurs with their wireless options where internet is provided using a small dish antenna. The antenna is fragile and you might lose connection or experience a slow connection when the weather is unfavourable.
Hathway Broadband Internet
Hathway is another popular Internet provider in Bangalore covering almost all areas in and around Bangalore. Hathway has a wide range of plans and packages for every type of broadband user. Mostly Hathway ties up with the local cable operator to provide internet. The pack includes a modem which connects to your computer through an Ethernet port.
Though the service is great in some areas in Bangalore, Hathway has had the most number of customer dissatisfactions. This is normally due to frequent Internet disconnections and very slow internet speeds. Though the service is fast, please do not expect high speed downloads. However, if no other service is available and you do not want to shell out more on Internet every month, Hathway is the best to go.
All these Internet service providers cover most of the prominent areas in Bangalore Koramangala, Indira Nagar, Basavanagudi, RT Nagar, Airport Road, Jayanagar, JP Nagar, Vijay Nagar, Banaswadi, Banshankari, Rajaji Nagar, Cox Town, Richmond Street, Majestic, Shanti Nagar, EG Pura, Madivala, Marthali, Whitefield, Sulthanpalya, MG Road, HAL, Electronic City, ITPL, KR Puram and other neighbouring areas.
