Spectra to Boost its 1 Gbps Broadband Plan Service to Users Nationwide

By June 8th, 2018 AT 4:51 PM

Spectra is one of the two top broadband providers in country when it comes to offering a Gigabit fibre broadband connection. The company also boasts of providing this plan under the price tag of Rs 1,000 (with FUP). These plans are currently being offered in Delhi and Bengaluru. There is some news brewing related to Spectra as the broadband provider has decided to partner up with the Finnish giant, Nokia to increase its services in the country. Under this partnership, Nokia will make use of IP/MPLS routing and GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Network) fibre solutions to provide seamless broadband experience to the customers of Spectra. The technology which Nokia will use, will be SAS and 7750 SR which will enable the company to provide Ethernet-based IP/MPLS routing supporting a broadband network gateway (BNG) function for residential subscriber management in the country.


Spectra is also eyeing other prominent market areas in the country, where the demand for high speed data has escalated significantly. The brand plans to deliver these services using Nokia’s IP/MPLS solution that will provide an IP aggregation, Edge and core network based on the 7210 Service Access Switch (SAS) and 7750 Service Router (SR) for the rollout of services in cities like Bengaluru, Delhi etc. The Nokia Network Services Platform (NSP) has been expected to handle end-to-end service provisioning along with network assurance. This is bound to lower the cost for Spectra while ensuring consumer satisfying quality of the network.

Nokia is also providing its 7360 ISAM FX GPON solution to “provide faster broadband speeds to customers and create the network foundation essential for future ultra-broadband services.” In addition, the enhanced fiber network will allow Spectra to address the emerging ultra-broadband needs of its customers and deliver best-in-class services.

For the unaware, Spectra is one of the fastest growing Indian broadband service providers, and its aggressive approach of offering gigabit speeds at an affordable rate will be a threat to other ISPs such as ACT Fibernet and Bharti Airtel. Notably, ACT Fibernet is the first ISP to provide a gigabit connection in Hyderabad, which later on, expanded to Bengaluru as well. ACT Fibernet’s ACT Giga plan costs Rs 5,999 (excluding taxes), while Spectra is charging just Rs 899 (With FUP) for the 1 Gbps gigabit plan. Spectra also confirmed that it would be launching 1 Gbps plan in other cities such as Mumbai very soon.

Spectra keeps making these announcements but there is no real implementation even in their existing fiber broadband markets like Mumbai. This is a useless marketing exercise.

50-100 mbps is what would fulfill the need for home use. It’s time BB companies should stop making headlines about Gbps or Tbps, in real world constant 50 or 100 would be sufficient to play HD content on the TV & phones but without any limits where most of these companies lacks in providing.
