High Speed Broadband: Is it a Utility or A Nice-to-Have?

by Shubham Ahuja Blogger
In this day and age, it’s difficult for anyone to envision a life without high-speed broadband. Looking back a few years, we have come a long way from the days where dial-up connections used to rule the roost. Broadband, today, shapes our current society and is an essential factor around which the world spins. Broadband has come a long way from being a perceived luxury to something of an essential service or a must-have today. Access to faster broadband and communication has helped make the world seem much less overwhelming than ever before. Consider the following benefits when you invest in a high speed broadband plan.

Benefits to Businesses:

Whether you’re a start-up entrepreneur or a well-established business owner, a high speed Internet connection allows you to realistically work from home while enabling you to help boost overall productivity. Fastest broadband connections enable you to video conference, connect with customers and suppliers in new ways, create PowerPoint’s, and use Spreadsheets without interrupting your work flow while maintaining reliability.

Benefits to Individuals:

A good broadband connection at your home translates to having a far bigger capacity to send and receive data. This, in turn, helps you access streaming video TV services, use VOIP to speak to your loved ones around the world, share videos, photos, music on social media platforms, and even play games online.

Broadband: A utility or a must-have

Communication is the wheel that propels today’s world and high speed broadband helps connect your device, whether it's a cell phone or a tablet, to billions of other devices and users across the globe. High Speed Broadband is thus successfully creating massive digital overlays which are reshaping the way we work, live, play and educate ourselves, just at the click of a button. However, increasing access to healthcare, education, essential services and e-commerce websites depends on how quick and reliable the Internet connection is. Outside of metropolitan areas, there's a major disparity between the quality, rates, speeds and service between urban areas and rural. The future is already here, it's just that it’s not evenly distributed.

Broadband in India

When it comes to the fastest broadband, India is still catching up with the rest of the world. There are several broadband players in India ranging from the major players to the seemingly obscure one’s who cater to both urban and rural areas.  Some of the top high speed broadband players include Airtel, You Broadband, Asianet, BSNL, Vodafone, ACT, Reliance just to name a few.

However, when zeroing in on the broadband of your choice, it's imperative that you do some homework and choose a trusted and reliable player in the marketplace. It also pays to take into consideration which part of the country you're in. If you're in one of the metros, then reliability and speeds aren't much of an issue and the downtimes are far and few between. However, if you're based out of Tier 2/3/4 cities, then choosing the right internet service provider makes all the difference in case something goes awry.

For instance, Airtel broadband is currently the largest serving ISP in Bangalore while having a huge customer base and is popular for providing high speed internet all across the city. So, it makes sense to opt for one of their many plans tailor-made keeping your connectivity requirements in mind.
