Spectra, one of India’s gigabit broadband service provider, today announced the roll-out of its ‘Spectra Fastest Package’, which comes with up to 1 Gbps speed, for its business and home broadband customers in Bengaluru. Spectra says that they have launched these plans in Bengaluru after receiving an overwhelming response in Delhi NCR. The Spectra Unlimited Packages with 1 Gbps download speed starts at Rs 1,249 per month, and the operator also unveiled a starter 1 Gbps package for Rs 899 with 400GB FUP download limit. Spectra says that the unused data of the current month can be forwarded to next month using the Carry Forward feature. This plan applies only to the Rs 899 plan as all other plans offer unlimited data without any FUP.
Spectra says the bandwidth like 1 Gbps enables users to use multiple devices simultaneously without sacrificing speed. Spectra’s offering is ‘unlimited’ which means you get uncapped download and upload data volume and is ‘symmetric’, which means you get the same 1 Gbps download and upload and speeds.
Also, the already existing Spectra’s Bengaluru customers have been upgraded to the 1 Gbps at no extra, and with this move, Spectra became the largest 1 Gbps broadband speed network provider in the country.
For small businesses, Spectra has differentiated offerings of dedicated fiber connectivity for different types of organisations. These packages start from Rs 1,999 per month for basic 1 Gbps broadband and goes up to Rs 14,000 per month for a dedicated leased line for 50 Mbps Advantage Speed for first 500 GB and 5 Mbps after that with multiple IPs.
Furthermore, Spectra has collaborated with leading content providers such as Hungama and ALTBalaji that come prebundled in their ‘Entertainment’ and ‘Premium’ packages for home customers priced at Rs 1,549 and Rs 1,849 per month respectively for Bengaluru users. There are also cash discounts on half yearly subscriptions and giveaways such as Amazon Fire TV stick annual subscriptions, making the proposition value heavy for each segment of customer.
Speaking of competition, ACT Fibernet is offering 1 Gbps ACT Giga plan in Bengaluru for now, and Spectra becomes the second ISP to offer gigabit speeds in the city. Back in September 2017, Spectra had committed to invest Rs 100 crore in its network expansion to cover 4 lakh households, and today’s launch in Bengaluru is a crucial step in that project.
