    So I'm going to participate in a pilot domestic gigabit Internet programme very soon. My ISP installed the hardware. When active, the connection will wire my home to 1000 Mb/s (or 1,000,000 kbps) of internet bandwidth.

    What my home network map looks like:

    What speeds my current ISP account gives with the installed hardware. I'll get the pilot login that enables gigabit speeds soon.

    And to think I was on 256 kbps from Satyam 10 years ago [​IMG].

    Compared to what Americans pay for gigabit (Google Gigabit / Verizon FiOS), peanuts. I'm just thrilled to be one of the first domestic (non-enterprise) Indian users to go gigabit.

    Close. I've been a subscriber to the ISP's various high-bandwidth plans for several years. The ISP needed a group of consumers from within Hyderabad's 70 km radius to test out its swanky new gigabit infrastructure that's being designed with the aim of giving gigabit internet to the masses. I opted in.

    #bharatnirman. I'm only one of the test-pilots to what will get into most households in the very near future. Of course those setups won't look this Frankenstein.

    There are perks to being able to download 700 MB in 6 seconds.

    Go green.

    Sorry to bust your bubble, but..
    Hayai | India's Fastest Broadband

    I am happy that Hyderabad is really living up to the name of Cyberabad though.

    My town is a bit damp in comparison.

    Ahh, thanks. I didn't think Hayai would beat my ISP to commercial gigabit. But for their prices, I could aggregate two 1 Gbit lines from my ISP for 2 Gb/s, if only the local network is also made to run over fibre-channel.

    There's a bit of a datacenter boom taking shape in Hyderabad. Most internet companies are evaluating the city for their local servers, so the gigabit broadband push will not get bottlenecked by the country's undersea links.

    Okay, so that means your connection is not FTTH. That's too bad. Hayai's COO pointed out that their connection is expensive because of FTTH, but he expects prices to stabilize over time. I mean, when they first began, they started with 1 Gbps unlike Beam, and had to push the cost to customers.

    Anyway what is the bandwidth allocated to a 1Gbps user? How much does extra bandwidth cost? Do they have the usual Fcuked Up Policy?

    EDIT: Hayai is also developing this internal network for internal users. Irrespective of the speeds the users choose, all Hayai users can connect to each other at 1Gbps and probably 2 or 3ms ping. Meaning if I want to access the porn on your system, I can do it at 1Gbps. :p It is called Hayai Zone. I hope Beam is also planning something similar.

    Mine is FTTH too, and I can connect to the ISP's data center at sub-millisecond pings.

    That yellow cable with the blue plug is the fiber line. I was talking about taking two such switches, from two different fiber links, and aggregating their downstream GbE ports. I just realised it could be done over software using two NICs.
