The Best Internet Plans from local ISPs in Bangalore

The Local ISPS are swarming with marketing strategies and low-priced high-speed Internet packages. It becomes a daunting task for consumers to select the best ISP within their price bracket we curate some of the best internet packages from the ISPs in Bengaluru so that it will be a cakewalk for you to select the best one.

We have created some idealized situation wherein a person would be requiring a maximum of 30GB fast speed internet and then throttled to a minimum of 1MBPS.

Act Fibernet

Act Fibernet has a major chunk of Bangalore covered with its latest Fiber net network. The best plan is the ACT Blaze for Rs1049 which entitles you for a free 50GB of usage and then the speed gets throttled to 50GB. After throttling we were able to get actual download speeds of around 50-60kpbs which is descent.

Hathway Broadband

Hathway has one of the best after sales service (Comparatively!) and they offer free shifting of the connection within the city limits. They have introduced a handful of Fiber Broadband plans which are extremely affordable. The HD Stream 2 plan bundles a 40GB of usage at a Whopping 50Mbps and will be throttled to 512kbps. The only drawback is that Hathway expects you to pay advance for 3 months.

You Broadband

You Broadband have a descent network however the performance varies from different nodes. The downside is that the outages are a little too frequent but again the technicians attend to it on a priority basis. The Hurricane 12mbps plan gives a full speed quota of 50GB and after that the speed gets throttled to 1mbps which is a 50% increase in speed over the other ISP. The installation charge is perched at a high Rs770 for a new connection.

Tikona Broadband

Tikona is one of the oldest players in the localized ISP sector. Tikona offers lower speeds than the other Internet providers but offers more data. The best plan we came across is the 4Mbps plan which for a monthly rental of Rs 1100 offers 50GB of free usage post which it caps the speed at the usual 512Kbps.

Most of the ISPs lack agile after sales support and this is the only drawback of the local ISPs. With the advent of fiber networks the speeds have improved drastically and the frequency of outages has come down.

We would love to hear from you, drop down a comment about your experience with any of the ISP in Bengaluru.

Since the day I got TIKONA connection, June 2016, I have lost my patience. I have been calling the customer care every other day to complain of pathetic and dumbest internet connection, in which I will not have internet for hours together, at least 8 to 10 hours of no internet. Tikona has proved that it is a worthless ISP. When they cannot give a satisfactory service then why do they advertise their products in the market. Every time I call TIKONA customer care center, I have to wait for 10 to 15 minutes and some times 20 to 25… Read more »

Tikona is the biggest cheat I have ever seen. They took 3 months advance subscription from me and put me in a fix. Now their connection is not working at all and if I disconnect, I would not get back the advance subscription as per their policy. Its just a bunch of craps who are running the business of cheating people. Never ever think of subscribing to Tikona.

Rohit communication ltd is worst of them.it provided low cost bbnl service.but the service is worst.tech help/ support never pick your call or always say reply you back but never reply.
I took a connection from them but won’t swork from 2nd day of the connection. They all forced me to buy a modem. After I am buying it and still the connection not Woking.
They do not refund my balance money also. Worst provider ever.

While we are talking about local players (whether the ones in the list might be debatable), the national players are probably worst. Airtel – i used both in Kolkata and Bangalore. Equally crappy. In Kolkata – they lied and said we are capping your tariff after max usage set and then charged me for every unit consumed after capped data, at the lower rate. In Bangalore – I took the connection about 10 days back and it has worked only 3 days and i get promise of “24 hours” restoration everyday for the last 7 days. Today i asked for… Read more »

ACT is very bad in giving connection and customer care is hopeless. Even after taking advance subscription no one answers properly and connection was not given after 10 days also. It is worst customer care be careful

Tikona,my be good in start off or show off. If it is not feasible to give a connection or any problem which they cannot solve, they will simply block your number on their mobile, so u will always get a busy tone. Believe me, they will be utterly not reachable. You will always have to talk to customer care, who will always ask 24 hours to solve.

I subscribed for ACT on 9th Jan 2015. My documents was accepted on 11th Jan. The payment was accepted on 12th Jan. I was supposed to get the connection within 10 days as per the SMS I received from ACT Team. After a few days, an ACT electrician installed a distribution box at my home and told me that the technical team will connect the cables to your workstation. The technical team never showed up. So, I registered an ACT request No 0003592279 on 16th Jan spoke to Prashanth from ACT who assured that this will be solved within 24… Read more »

Hi Ashwin,
i also faced the same issue, after all installation but it took 2 months for Act team to let me know that connection in my area is not feasible, really very poor service from Act team and very poor response with no customer centric approach.

Our BSNL is the best in terms of customer service although ISP parameters are low when compared to private players

Tikona is the worst ISP I did ever encounter. I had been to many places and used services from Beam, Act, Airtel etc. Firstly, IP addresses are provided by Tikona DHCP server. Good luck getting an IP address from Tikona. You need to keep restarting their proprietary modem to get an IP address. After that, the connection will go down every alternate day. Call the tolled customer care number to get the issue fixed. Tikona Customer Care has the most unprofessional, rude, non-tech agents who don’t have any idea about your issue. Even if you are able to login to… Read more »
