I thought the OP was in Kirwee (where fibre is coming shortly)? Or have I missed something.

Otherwise, do UFF have infrastructure in that area? That might be worth looking into - but probably costly as well (a la an NGA connection).

Theclaytons: There will be money to pay for this within reason. Several hundred dollars per month will be fine.

 

and then you say 

 

Theclaytons: Hospitality industry. Imagine many rooms full of guests. We use almost 100TB per month across the group.

 

I would say nope nope nope
I wouldnt be touching that with a barge pole. 

 

 

 

You clearly have the capability of bigger than just several hundred per month and are possibly misunderstanding how important fast internet is to your income. 

 

Urban hotels generally pay a minimum of several hundreds per month, and for an ISP, hotels are the worst customers because every problem the guest has with their personal devices is blamed on the ISP. Having internet is now more important than sky tv. 

 

Also fixed wireless technology currently sits around the 30-80mbit speed. You can go faster with dedicated microwave links but its thousands (not hundreds) per month.

If you are looking at a rural fiber solution, in a chorus area (not sure where you are) then you might want to try a smaller ISP such as lightwire.

 

Smaller ISPs tend to be more creative and willing to put in effort than a larger ISP that may prefer to just get the easy sales wins. Its not worth putting much effort into rural UFB connections because of the amount of time required for the ISP to put into getting the connection installed, and suddenly any other ISP can churn you over with the flick of a switch and no effort at all. So smaller ISPs work better when you need a more bespoke custom solution and where bigger providers cant maintain the relationship requirements.

If you can give me options. We can't do nothing, so almost any option is better than 6mb ADSL. Our internet bill per month is over 10k already.

Given your usage, my bet is probably fibre (albeit NGA) would be best in your situation.

I live in Kirwee, we (company) have locations all over the country....this is a new opportunity that needs half decent internet.

I'd be curious to know how much an NGA would cost in your situation (although I imagine it will be fairly expensive).

I'll share when I get numbers. 

 

The last couple of NGA's have come in at 10k and 16k. Suspect this will be more.
