Optical fibre broadband service provider Spectranet on Wednesday announced their next phase of expansion in South India by launching its operations in Bengaluru.

The service provider company offers unlimited usage with symmetric speed of 100 mbps, which means that the users will get both 100 MBPS upload and download speeds.

It offers next generation fiber broadband services with a capability of offering one GBPS speeds for residential and 10 GBPS for business customers. The high-speed fiber broadband plans start at Rs. 1, 199 in the new launch areas.

“Bengaluru being the IT hub of the country was our natural choice to begin our foray into the southern markets. With tech-savvy residents who have a preference for quality services, we are very excited to unleash the third age of connectivity from here,” said MD and CEO Spectranet, Udit Mehrotra, adding that other metro cities will get the broadband connection soon. He also said that the deployment of fibre has begun in Delhi NCR.

Spectranet’s offer will enable consumers to avail services like Netflix, use smart TV features and connect more devices. Users will now be able to utilise products and services which they were unable to use because of non-availability of good quality broadband.

“Fibre being the most advanced technology enables broadband to work years on years without the customers needing to upgrade their cables. This enables us to potentially provide speeds 100 times beyond what the customers are experiencing now and enhance their experience. We want to bring our customers at par with the global broadband users,” added Mehrotra.

Earlier, the company had invested heavily in its customer support team and has a very robust mechanism to service customer requests. By purchasing the initial launch phase offer, customers will be secured of any changes in launch offer plan for the next 24 months which is only available for the 30 days and after that it would be moved to the regular plan.
