ACT Fibernet, which claims to be the largest non-telco internet service provider (ISP), uses fiber optic technology, and its 1 Gbps offering is 400 times faster than the average internet speed of 2.5 megabits per second in India.
Gigabit speeds, which have been around 2011, will allow downloads from the internet faster than transferring data from a USB drive, and will be available for Rs 5,999 per month.
“With our citizens and the government moving towards the Digital India movement, high speed internet is the need of the hour. With the launch of our 1 Gbps broadband internet service, it gives me immense pride to turn this dream into reality," said Bala Malladi, CEO, ACT Fibernet .
He added that such high speeds will transform the way internet is now being consumed at large and this will fast track the government’s target to connect all its 23 million Telangana residents through the Internet by 2018.
Telangana's Minister for IT K. Taraka Rama Rao said the 1Gbps internet speed offered by ACT in Hyderabad would help fulfil his vision of making Telangana a tech and digitally advanced hub.
India is the second largest market globally with internet connectivity reaching over 400 million people. With the government’s efforts to internet enable cities, internet penetration is set to reach over 600 million users by 2020.
ACT Fibernet’s 1 Gbps wired internet service would soon be available in the 11 cities the company has presence in.
