ACT Fibernet rolls-out 1 Gbps plan in Bengaluru after Hyderabad

MUMBAI: Fiber broadband service provider ACT Fibernet has launched 1 Gbps (Giga speeds, 1000 Mbps) wired broadband internet service for the city of Bengaluru.

Bengaluru is the second city where the ACT has launched the 1Gbps service. Earlier, the broadband player had launched 1 Gbps service in Hyderabad. The two cities are important markets for ACT.

The service was launched in the presence of Karnataka minister of IT, biotechnology, science & technology and tourism Priyank Kharge. ACT Fibernet has now GIGA powered two Indian cities in 2017.

Bengaluru, popularly known as the silicon city of India and rated as one of the world’s top high-tech city, has an incessant demand for high-internet broadband speed.

ACT Fibernet’s 1 Gbps broadband speed will amplify internet speeds and provide an incredible internet experience to the residents of the city. This move will further place Bengaluru in the league of select cities in the world that can boast of such futuristic technology.

Speaking on the launch, Atria Convergence Technologies CEO Bala Malladi said, “With the success of 1Gbps in Hyderabad, I am extremely happy to extend our services to Bengaluru. Known as the tech capital of India, we realised the city needs cutting edge/ futuristic internet technology to accelerate its development. We, therefore, ramped up our network with Giga technology and will now provide full coverage for individual home and corporate organisation. I am confident that as we keep introducing such advanced technology across cities we will soon witness a societal transformation.”

Priyank Kharge said, “Bengaluru has been announced as the city that is most adaptable to digital change and has always been at the forefront of technology and innovation. It is a matter of pride that ACT Fibernet being a Bengaluru founded startup has become a pioneer in India to introduce 1 Gbps broadband connectivity in the country and by launching this in Bengaluru today, it would only further enable us to digitize the entire city and supplement the Government of Karnataka’s Vision along with India’s vision to be a leader in the digital economy. With the launch of 1 Gbps Internet in the technology capital of India, it further strengthens Bengaluru’s position as a true Global City. I wish the very best to ACT Fibernet and I’m sure they will play a very important role in the Internet industry of India.”

At the event, Kharge and Malladi jointly announced to make Karnataka Assembly building Vidhana Soudha one of the first to be powered with 1 Gbps speed connectivity.

As a part of the launch, ACT Fibernet is introducing curated broadband plans for retail and SME (Small Medium Enterprise) customers. Under retail, ACT GIGA plan will offer 1 Gbps broadband speed with 1250 GB FUP upload and 1250 Gb FUP Download at Rs.5999 only.
