Good News for residents of Bangalore. Just a while ago a reader of this blog tipped me with a mobile number. Bingo!!! Reliance Communications, a Anil Dhirubhai Ambani group company is the first company to launch Wimax for residential consumers in Bangalore / Bengalooru. [Sify has it for Corporates. Bangalore Unwired for Selected Users]. I spoke to Reliable Enterprises, Bangalore which is providing pre-launch offer WiMax broadband connections.
Reliance WiMax Broadband Delivery Platform:
No more Trences for Cable saves a lot of headache in congested Bangalore. They will install a WiMax antenna on top of your house, just like the DTH Dish and a cable is drawn to a Modem. If you have mroe than one computer to share than you need a SOHO router to hook your PC and Laptops. The Wimax antenna talks directly to Reliance Towers.
The Cost Structure:
Pre-launch offer – Rs 500 Installation Cost. The Pre-launch offer is valid through June-15th. For residential use, the cost for Wimax broadband is same as that of Reliance Wired Broadband. A 150 Kbps Unlimited Data Transfer connection costs Rs 750 / Month and a 300 Kbps Unlimited Data Transfer connection costs Rs 999 / Month. All other taxes are additional.
Availability of WiMax Broadband:
It is currently available within the Ring Road areas. The whole of Bangalore will be covered shortly – few weeks. The connection will be established within 2 weeks of application. To apply, Contact Reliable Enterprises at 99800-62800. Let us know of your experience.
