More Bandwidth from Alliance Broadband in Kolkata

Kolkata’s local internet service provider Alliance Broadband is all set to increase international bandwidth for its customers. The move comes in a time when major ISPs like BSNL, MTNL and Airtel are hiking their wired broadband tariff across the cities.

Across the country there is a trend among few internet service providers, that they are offering peering services for their subscribers. In Kolkata top two local ISPs like Alliance and Meghbela offer the same to its customers. Apart from general torrent downloads their cache system provide peering speed on other websites too.

    I am using Speed connection but whenever I want to watch any thing on you tube or do Face book It is always buffering ! Before I had Premium connection but had the same problem ! Then the cable man told me to take speed connection to solve my problem ! But it is of no use ! I let the cable man use my electricity to provide other connection from my house ! I think he must be using my connection and giving others ! Please look into this matter. More over every alternate days some problem arises due to wire breakage ! When ever I call the cable man he says wire broken so 2 days no connection ! Hardly 15 to 18 days we get proper connection ! Please help!

    @rdb,
    Previously I had used alliance… Not bad.
    Want to know if they now allow always on connection, especially for router… Like pppoe. I hate using their 24online web/PC client… It was the main reason I left them… Any updates regarding this?

    • RDB April 1, 2014 8:18 am

      I am using alliance via tp-link wireless router for 6+montgs. no issues right now. downtime at my area is less than 2 hrs/month. speed is good, 99% of promised speed all the time.

      are you from khardah? what are you using now – 3G or other ISP?

      • Agnivo April 4, 2014 1:26 pm

        Yea, from Khardah… currently using BSNL broadband only. Was using Alliance alongwith BSNL. Didn’t recharge Alliance for about a year now.

        My main dislike is keeping 24online client active everytime I need internet.

        So I was asking is it possible anyway to keep always on Alliance connection without logging in everytime in 24online without manual intervention? Maybe they may have a PPPoE mode where we can save the username/pass in the wireless router?

        Please dig a bit and help me know… TIA.

          No you don’t need a separate client these days. You can login via web based interface and close the browser window. The session will be active as long as the router is ON.

          Btw, where are you these days? :)

          • Rakesh May 28, 2014 8:30 pm

            can u explain the happy hours speed, for example take PRIME, if i download something at 1 am to 9 am, how much speed will i get internationally not in torrent.

        • pranoy - Kolkata September 18, 2014 2:31 am

    Its only for Kolkata Circle User, No upgradion in bandwidth for Rest of Bengal User. I am a Alliance user, Just confirmed about no upgradation in bandwidth (for ROWB circle ) from Local Cable Operator. Good Luck Kolkata Users.

    • Anirban March 31, 2014 12:58 pm

      They already provides the above increased speed in ROB circle,even at low cost compare to Kolkata circle,just go to their website alliancekolkata.co.in and check the speed along with tafiff.Hope everything will be clear to you.

      • Swarup May 28, 2014 7:29 am

        But the Peering speed is only for Kolkata & Just one or two areas(Like Balurghat).
        ROB Bengal doesnt have any peering speed at all.

  • Sayantan(Kolkata) March 30, 2014 5:26 pm

    Great to see such a move from alliance when others are hiking their tariff across the country.They had increased their bandwidth around 2 years ago and now again increase!!Wow!!Just great!!Why would I opt for RJio after this?

  • sayan March 30, 2014 4:41 pm

    What is peering speed? What is happy hour?

    • Rama March 31, 2014 6:24 am

      *peering is a form by which ISPs connect amongst themseleves and use a common network.

      *Happy hours as far as I can see is the time period between 1am and 9 am where u can get extra speed.

      • Rakesh May 28, 2014 8:25 pm

        my question is about happy hours, is the speed is only for peering or is it international?
