Ever since we moved to a new place it has been an uphill task to find a decent broadband service provider. This area isn’t wired yet, and it feels like the aliens will land on this planet before BSNL or Airtel plan to dig up and plant any optical fibre cables around this place. My only option is wireless connectivity. That’s a nightmare in itself.
I started with a local WiFi based ISP called Wi5. The small Chennai based company offers wireless connections over WiMax networks. The company literally dropped dead after a few months. There was no official word, no one even came back to collect the outdoor CPE, probably fearing getting beaten up by customers. I had to switch back to the ugly Tata Photon+ USB based dongle for the time being.
