India to get fast internet in limited quantity

BSNL has announced that it will offer 100 mbps internet speeds in Pune. While this is the fist time such high speeds will be available to residential customers, the pricing and availability will be at a premium. Charges will range from $30 to a whopping $1700 per month for 2 to 100 mbps speeds respectively.

Offering such high speeds requires operators to invest heavily in fiber optics at the last mile. Hopefully this move and its resulting revenues will enable operators to invest more in India‘s information & communication technology (ICT) infrastructure and thus improve in the global ICT rankings.
