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.

Hello,
I’m an Alliance Broadband user living in Palta. I have subscribed to Speed which is supposed to give me upto 8 mbps during happy hours as mentioned in the tariff details. During my experience with Alliance for the last five months, I have been only getting upto 4mbps. It never goes up than that. What is going on?

@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?

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?

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? 🙂
