In Depth Review of G-Broadband in Bengaluru

By September 30th, 2014 AT 3:34 PM

There are many ISPs that are mushrooming on a regular basis in metros. A majority of these ISPs are MSOs (Multiple System Operators) who also operate Cable TV connections in the area. G-Broadband is one such operator in Bengaluru that still offers completely unlimited plans and currently is running an offer wherein you won’t be needing to pay anything for the installation.

G-Broadband is run by Gatik Solutions and their services are currently available in Cochin and Bengaluru. We thought that we should give this ISP a try, hence got the connection in Bengaluru. We opted for the Velocity Plan which entitled us for an unlimited data usage at speeds of 1Mbps for a month at Rs 900, not bad considering there is no FUP to bother about.

The Areas Covered

The G Broadband covers a major chunk of areas in Bengaluru and in some areas it has also tied up with Hathway. The good part is that they have installed power backup at the nodes so that the Internet connectivity doesn’t fizzle out in case of a power shutdown which is not a rarity in Bengaluru.

Speed and Consistency

The Speed test result was great considering that we managed to squeeze 0.97 MBPS of speed in a 1Mbps connection and the uploads were not bad at 0.48 Mbps. The download speeds are up-to 120kbps which is decent for normal usage.

The Internet connectivity will take a hit every month and the servers will be down for 3-5 hours. We would definitely appreciate the Customer executives who don’t give false assurances and instead quote the proper downtime’s. The service engineers are extremely swift and in a case of a connectivity problem will land up at your door in a matter of minutes. We would love to know your feedback on the services from G Broadband.

Pathetic Service and Useless Customer Care Team I took a new i-on internet connection by paying Rs.1300 and the plan was 50Mbps speed, on the day of installation it was showing 5MBPS maximum. I didn’t use this connection even for a day. I believed the sweet words from the sales person and technical person who came for the installation. I expect the speed issue to be resolved in 1,2 days. I called customer care team once in every day and they never took any action towards the issue. I raised around 10 tickets and customer care team closed those tickets… Read more »
