India (finally) gets a 1Gbps Internet connection speed

/ 5 years ago

The new corporate building in Startup Village in the state of Kerala becomes the first place to get 1Gbps internet connection in India- and its not from Google Fibre. Its a decision most likely being made after a report indicating that India ranks #112 in Average Internet connection speed, barely hitting 1 Mbps in average- despite having corporate offices and businesses from multiple reputable international companies.

The new building will serve offices for Blackberry, IBM, Oracle and KPMG. The project is also pushed by the State government, so this shows that with little bit of a motivation, its possible to roll out high speed broadband connection in India- atleast to corporate offices. However, this requires a massive roll out with many multi national and smaller companies that are spread throughout the country.

Once this spreads out well, its only a matter of time consumers will be able to get a better speed for a reasonable cost- assuming private companies decides to stop milking consumers with ridiculous fair usage policies even for users that don’t use internet a lot.

As of now, Google fibre provides 1Gbps connection speed in Kansas City, USA.

  1. Internet is just too costly in India. I use a measely 2mbps connection. And don’t talk about the FUP …its FU customer Policy.

    • True. If you read Airtel’s interview in Medianama, it shows that they have a less grasp of how internet functions to begin with. Unfortunately, lack of knowledge and lack of motivation to assimilate know for good has evolved as an advantage for them.
