MUMBAI: Hathway Cable & Datacom has launched a 50 Mbps broadband service, targeted at the mass market, on its Docsis 3.0 ultra high speed network. Docsis 3.0 is a widely deployed and dominant broadband network technology (capable of delivering speeds up to 1 gigabit) which powers leading broadband markets like USA, Korea and Europe.
“We are the first company to launch a truly mass market high-speed 50 Mbps retail product in Bengaluru,” said Hathway Cable & Datacom MD & CEO Jagdish Kumar.
“We have experienced a great response to our 50Mbps Docsis offering in Mumbai and Pune and with our CISCO powered Docsis 3.0 network we are in a position to deliver 50 Mbps speeds to every retail customer in Bengaluru. We are confident that the 50 Mbps Docsis 3.0 service will get a huge response in the IT capital of India. Hathway will continue to invest in expanding the Ultra High speed Broadband network in other parts of the country,” he added.
Hathway broadband business head Kunal Ramteke further added. “Our pricing for 50 Mbps speeds is similar to what other operators are charging for low-speed services of 1 to 2 Mbps. The speeds we are delivering on our Docsis 3.0 network are comparable with the speeds in the most advanced broadband markets like Korea and USA. A High Definition video file of 2GB can be downloaded in just 5 to 10 minutes on our Docsis 3.0 network. YouTube in HD and lightning fast responses in internet gaming are other experience enhancing features Bengaluru customers will enjoy on Hathway’s Docsis 3.0 network.”
The Docsis 3.0 broadband network was initially deployed in Mumbai and later expanded to Pune. Delivering a speed of 50 Mbps has revolutionised the user experience in the cities where it has been launched. In Bengaluru, the customers will not only be enjoying the 50 Mbps high speed with a 99.9 per cent uptime guarantee but will also experience Gold Standard Customer Support with fully trained staff to handle any service requirements pertaining to high speed internet access through multiple devices and a guaranteed service issue resolution within 24 hours.
The 50 Mbps Docsis 3.0 broadband service starts with a monthly price of Rs 733. A complete portfolio of 50 Mbps plans is being launched to cater to residential and corporate customers.
