BROADBAND SERVICES IN INDIA

Broadband stands for signal of telecommunication or a device with greater bandwidth. Previously people around the world were using Dial-up connection. It was very difficult to get connect to internet in those days as the method of dial-up was using our home telephone line for connecting to internet. The speed of net was also very slow in those periods. But after the cable modem was installed, it was little better for the users to use the internet.

Still we were facing the problem in using internet until it was been able to dig up the roads and installed own cables only for internet connectivity. After having own cable dugged by internet, the speed was 10 times much better and so the connectivity. After the entrance of broadband in india, the capital of india has increased amd so the employment also. Though the growth is very moderate, broadband can be more developed in our country. Government has funded broadband for rural areas. TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) is playing an important role in providing broadband services in rural india also.

Previously in the world of internet for india, there were only 2 big tycoons, MTNL and BSNL. BSNL is a telecom owned by state and offer maximum telecom services. It has improved its quality of service and also gained a market share in rural india.  But now the shares of BSNL and MTNL are going down due to the entry of many private providers like TATA Teleservices, Vodafone, Airtel etc. The customers are not stable with any on provider always and keep on changing their providers due to cost factor or some other factor like quality of services etc. VSNL is the first company to start with internet services in india. They were very fast in building up the customers.

In 2010 our government auctioned 3G and wireless internet was introduced in our country. Our country is having now millions of users and standing at the third position for having so many internet users in the world. In india, there are hundreds of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to provide broadband services. Among the private sector, Bharti is leading today in offering the broadband services.

Our government is trying to reach to all the parts of our country. Cellular operators are given the permission to provide all the services of internet throughout the india. WLL has also been introduced. We are also going to start with 4G services in india very soon. In no longer time, India will be having all type of Internet services, all over india.
