Alliance Broadband Gigabit Fiber New Tariff Plans wef April 2018

Good News, Folks!

Alliance Broadband, one of the leading broadband providers in Kolkata and West Bengal, has finally brought Gigabit Fiber Plans for its customer base. This is the first time some broadband provider is bringing truly unlimited Gigabit Speeds without any FUP Limits via Optic Fiber and GEPON. The new tariff plans will be available from 15th April 2018 Onwards and should replace the old tariff plans.

If sources are to be believed, then the high-speed internet plans are going to be available from 50Mbps and go straight up to 1Gbps. Well, while the cost of the 50Mbps Unlimited plan is just Rs500, the Unlimited 1Gbps plan is costly af, at a whopping 13k. However, those who can afford it or need it for office purposes, they are worth it. Also, there are a lot of plans in the middle ranges with reasonable pricing. The complete details of the plans are given in this post. Keep following.

Finally, Broadband Revolution in Kolkata. If you always looked at popular high-speed broadband providers of New Delhi, Bangalore and Chennai such as Excitel or Act Fibernet and wished for such high speeds in your hometown, then, finally your wish is going to be fulfilled. Alliance Broadband is here to your rescue, with blazing fast unlimited internet plans that will change your internet experience forever.

Alliance has been deploying Fiber Optic cable throughout the city (as well as different parts of ROB circle) for the past 2-3 years. And currently, most of the LCOs that provide Alliance Broadband has Fiber Optic availability. So, this is the best time to launch high-speed plans. 😉

Those who are already using Alliance Broadband know that Alliance Broadband kept on increasing their tariff plan speeds every year for the last 3 years while keeping the prices same or similar.

Talking about my plan, When I joined alliance broadband, I used to get 2 Mbps speeds (Prime Plan) for around Rs600, back in 2014 and that soon increased to 4Mbps in 2015. Later that year, they changed all plan names (Prime+) and made the speeds 10Mbps with a revised tariff of similar pricing (Rs650). That doubled to 20Mbps in 2016 and again doubled to 40Mbps in 2017. And now in 2018, it finally doubled again to 80Mbps, with that same price of Rs650. Can you imagine my journey?

So why such a revolutionary speed increase?

Well, there are factors to consider here.

Firstly, Upgrading the existing Broadband Cable to Fiber Optic Cables really made a huge difference as the later could carry a huge amount of data with lower costs. Now a lot of broadband providers are switching to Fiber Optic cables. Alliance has started it since last few years and gradually deploying it throughout their all serviceable regions.
Secondly, Combating Competition. Jio has already disrupted the telecom market with their dirt cheap plans and is building up their own JioFiber to revolutionize broadband plans. Alliance saw this coming and starting preparing itself for it so that it can give a tough market competition.
Thirdly, The need for a truly unlimited cheap broadband provider. If you check the existing broadband rates for different providers in Kolkata, none provides broadband in so cheap rates, and even if some do, most of them have FUP limits that ruin the experience completely. Finally, we will get to experience speeds like popular companies operating in New Delhi, Gurgaon or Chennai etc.
Fourthly, Lack of Gigabit Broadband Providers. There are always users who are ready to pay as much as needed to get the highest speeds possible. Many office spaces etc require huge bandwidth and for them, Alliance 1Gbps plan is just perfect. It’s costly, I agree, but finally, you get the service, right?
Lastly, Alliance Broadband is securing the future of the broadband internet with rapidly increasing speeds while keeping the costs similar. At least in the last 3 years, speeds have increased 20-40x in some cases. This means in future we can expect to get more and more speeds. Some future proofing is great. 🙂

At the current moment, Alliance Broadband is able to provide unlimited broadband plans without FUP limits. And having used it for years, I can assure you that I am getting to use the same speeds throughout the month. I have Fiber Optic, hence my speeds are close to the mentioned tariff plans, without any sort of network disruptions.

So, I must say, Alliance Broadband is good to go solution for anyone who needs good speeds at reasonable prices.

Let’s check out the plan details.

Alliance Broadband Internet Plans w.e.f. April 2018:

Alliance Broadband operates in the entire West Bengal, and so has different plans for Kolkata and R.O.B. Circle. And for each of these zones, it has two types of plans: Unlimited NO FUP Plans and Limited FUP Plans.

Now, I don’t see why they have kept the Limited FUP Plans, and whether they have any customer for the same, as the plans are way costlier and not at all value for money compared to the Unlimited Plans.

The Gigabit Fiber Plans are specifically for Kolkata Circle (and not ROB Circle). But many places under ROB (like Krishnanagar, Kalyani etc) offers data as per Kolkata Circle only. So, these Fiber plans apply to them too, provided they have deployed Fiber Optic cable over those regions.

Anyways, here’s the plan details:
