1Gbps Broadband by ACT Fibernet Makes Hyderabad Fastest City in India

When I moved to Hyderabad, in 2010, I was mesmerized by the city, its culture heritage, language, architectural buildings, modern marvels and Internet plans! Hyderabad was then the “Pearl City” of India. Lately, with technological developments, and booming broadband internet services, Hyderabad has a new name “Giga City” of India. The credit goes to ACT Fibernet, when last Thursday, 30th March 17’, it created history by announcing 1Gbps broadband internet services in twin cities Hyderabad and Secunderabad.

TechQuark was invited to witness the history for the announcement of 1 Gbps speed at Taj Krishna, Hyderabad. We met renowned people, fellow bloggers and got to listen from prominent speakers. In the words of Telangana’s IT minister K T Rama Rao who launched the services, “It is my vision to connect our residents through high-speed internet, and I am sure this product will further help fulfill my vision of making Telangana a tech and digitally advanced hub.”

ACT Fibrenet’s CEO Bala Malladi highlighted that globally only four countries offer Gbps services on a large scale, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea and US and now India has these services for a price of Rs 5,999 per month where the Fair Usage Policy limits to 1 Terabyte.

Following the announcement of launching 1Gbps in Hyderabad, ACT Fibernet laid down its plans to invest Rs 1,200 crore over next two years and launch its services in 10 other cities of India. Further, Bala Malladi said “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. The city of Hyderabad is apt for our maiden launch as it has some of the best technology brands, educational institutions, and a vibrant economy”.
