Internet access is actually the ability of connecting individuals and organisations to connect to the internet just by using the computer terminals, computers and other devices. And finding the proper internet provider is not an easy job. Especially, when you are in a city like Bangalore, though the choosing of mobile service provider was easy but one will thus find it difficult when it comes to choose a proper internet service provider.
Choosing an ISP in Bangalore
There are numerous options available to choose from when it comes to choosing the proper internet service provider in Bangalore. It is from wireless dongle to wired broadband. Even in between these also one will find different other service provider names that are Hath way or Airtel or YOU Broadband or ACT Broadband or we may say Tikona. Broadband services are distributed area wise in Bangalore. Not all service providers provide the internet in every part of Bangalore. If on one area Airtel Broadband is running then on the other area You Broadband or we may say ACT or Tikona is running. So after seeing all other chart rates and all, we decided for the installation ACT Broadband in our place. Almost within 24 hours of requesting for a new connection, the ACT Broadband sales person to collect the details and necessary documents.
Just beware while filling the ACT forms as sometimes the sales person asks for some personal details or documents. And it was not really sceptical as no other inter service provider (ISP) has ever collected PAN card, AADHAR Card details. After questioning them for many times, they kept on saying that this is just some new rules and regulations which was decided by this operator. Later on, we came to learn that they used these details just to use it against the defaulters. On the other hand, ACT Broadband modems are quiet expensive and costs much more than the modems of other brands of ISPs available in the market. The average cost of ACT Wifi modem is around 2000/-

Issues Of ACT Broadband
One of the major issues with this is its connectivity and speed because sometimes one has to face unannounced and unceremoniously blackouts for a couple of minutes. Sudden blackouts sometimes can therefore cause stress and sometimes leads to some amount of frustration. Though it is sometimes an isolated issue, it is sometimes very much frustrating to deal with. ACT is, therefore, can be explained as one of the worst when it comes to customer services. Because if they say that they need to raise a ticket, then slowly one would lose all their hope. And if accidentally they say that our technician will reach you in 24 hours then that means that no one will ever contact you in that case. So in this case the best way is to take the direct contact of the technician. Though they also respond very poorly at least once in a while, they pick up your call and therefore help you in resolving the issue.
Apart from these things, ACT was good. Even the ACT Broadband recently has launched some new plans for the home users in Bangalore which gives with a speed like 80Mbps. So, it is very much important to take a provider with better services. This is just because things will thus go down and one will face various issues and at that time one will feel like crunching their head into the ground. So it is better to choose the right ISP provider rather choosing the ACT Broadband services.
