Tikona Launches Wireless Broadband In 10 In India
By on February 11th, 2010

Tikona Digital Networks launched its wireless broadband service in 10 cities in India, including Delhi. The internet service provider (ISP)  plans to expand its network to 50 cities by the end of 2010. The speed offered is quite decent too — up to 2Mbps. Apart from that, users need not buy an extra device for the service, the company will offer it as a part of the package, which might work in advantage for the users. ISPs like Relaince, Tata Indicom and others force users to buy the device worth 3-4k INR to use their wireless service.

Mr Prakash Bajpai, Founder, MD & CEO, Tikona Digital Networks explains, The current broadband internet scenario is similar to what the mobile scenario was 10 years ago. India has just a little under 10 Mn Broadband while China has more than 120 Mn Broadband. China could reach this level as they had a large wireline plant of over 400 Mn lines. India has only 40 Mn and only a fraction of this is usable for Broadband. Wireless broadband is the only option for India to increase its Broadband base to levels that are similar to China’s. We envision a powerful broadband enabled India and believe that it is an imperative for an emerging IT and software superpower.^
