Only a handful of service providers like Spectra, Reliance Jio and ACT Fibernet have been providing gigabyte level speeds to the consumers in the broadband sector
The broadband sector has been seeing unprecedented attention from the service providers and the consumers alike. This is major because of the new announcements and launches made by Reliance Jio. The Mukesh Ambani led telecom operator has introduced fiber-based broadband plans for the consumers in India finally after a long wait. While most of the plans come with speeds like 100 Mbps which are seen from a lot of service providers, there are select plans which offer up to 1 Gbps speeds as well.
