Tips to Find the Best ISP for Your Business

In this globalized age, businesses need to communicate internally as well as externally to individuals and groups situated across a wide geographic area. For this, a good and quick Internet with a strong connection is a must. The Internet will help all the departments in your office including marketing, customer service, and more. Here are some tips for you to find the best Internet Service Provider (ISP).

Do some research-


Decide on the most-wanted features of your Internet connection. Be sure to do some research and keep records of this research in case needed for future use.

Find out the services provided-


Many ISPs provide different services in a variety of locations. While an ISP may provide a 3 Mbps Internet pack for INR 550 in Mumbai, it may not have the same pack for Delhi. Hence, it is best to ask your ISP about all their offers. If you have branches in other cities, you may want to ask your ISP about its plans in those places as well.

Find out the technology used-


While wireless internet is great to use in your organization, there are also other forms of connections you may use to access the Internet. These are:
Ethernet
Ethernet controls how data is transmitted over a LAN. It is also a good way to keep the entire organization connected.

Satellite Internet
While satellite Internet may be a little splotchy once in a while, it however provides for good Internet impulses.

T1 lines
T1 lines let you connect your entire business within one area network in order to perform smoothly.
What do you need to keep in mind while searching for an ISP?
While choosing your ISP, keep the following in mind:
The number of employees who will be using the Internet
For how long will they be using the Internet
What exactly will they be doing with the Internet? For instance, a Skype call will take a lot more data than sending an email.

Be it for work purposes or for home use, Tikona Infinet Limited and Home broadband services have something for all kinds of users, as mentioned by several subscribers in their review about Tikona. Their services include secured office Wi-Fi solutions so that you and your employees may access the Internet on smart devices as well as keep your office information from being acquired by hackers.

What is Digital Content?
Digital content is also known as digital media. It is comprised of text, images, graphics, animations, audio, and videos. It is anything that can be published on the Internet.

The Debate with Free and Paid Content
The huge, and probably hottest, debate of our times is whether digital content should be available for free or should it be paid for. Among the important questions that arise are “Can businesses still make money after providing free content to consumers?” and “Is it possible to stop illegal file sharing and protect content creators from losing money?”

The Future of Digital Content
With so many different types of content available, the question is no more about what kind of content to create, it’s about how to effectively deliver content to the masses?".

An In Depth Tikona Review of 4 Mbps Broadband Plan by a College Professor

Name: Uttam Jha
Age: 33 years
Location: Thane West, Mumbai
Occupation: College Professor

I am a college professor and like to help my students understand all kinds of complex topics. To do this, I tend to use videos, PowerPoint presentations, and other audio-visual material. I also research thoroughly on the subject that I teach in class. However, to do this, I needed a fast and smooth broadband connection. A slow internet connection would only take a lot of time to load videos and download them.

The internet connection I had would sometimes stop working in the middle of my work. This would not only delay my preparation time but also spoil the quality of videos I had to download to show the class. I started wondering whether I should leave my current internet service provider for a new and better one.

How I came to know about Tikona?

Once during the lunch break, I was discussing my internet issue with a few other friends. A couple of them suggested that I try Tikona since they also had it and were very happy with its service. So, I decided to go online and read some Tikona broadband reviews. I found most of them favorable. I also liked the plans it offered on its website. Since I was already looking for a new service provider and found Tikona’s reviews and plans good, I decided to go for it.

Tikona plan I selected

I decided to opt for Tikona’s 4 Mbps broadband plan. The plan had a download speed of 4 Mbps. It provides a wireless network connection and also had unlimited data, so I did not have to keep looking at the number of MBs used per day. The plan cost me INR 3,800 for every three months. I found this incredibly convenient as I did not have to bother to pay my internet bill every month. The fact that I had to pay INR 3,800 for unlimited data also made it budget-friendly. My kids who had heard good reviews for Tikona Infinite Limited from their friends were also happy that I switched to Tikona broadband as they could now work on their projects smoothly. I found that the plan easily matched all my needs. 

How was Tikona connection installed?

Tikona’s installation process was very fast. I had contacted the company via its website after browsing through all the plans and finally selecting one. It took one evening to set up and install the entire infrastructure needed. There were two routers installed. The first one was installed on the terrace. From there, a cable was used to connect the one on the terrace to the second one that was installed at home. Since then, I have been able to access the Tikona broadband service on any device with Wi-Fi.

My final review and rating

I have been using Tikona’s internet service since the past six months. I haven’t yet found any problems with it. I just paid the subscription amount for the next three months.
As per my Tikona review, the internet connection is really smooth. It is always fast and till now it has never been down. If you want fast internet with just about no down time, I would definitely recommend Tikona.

Installation service: 8/10
Equipment: 8/10
Speed: 9/10
Connectivity: 10/10
Customer service: 8/10
My overall rating: 8/10

Advancements Required for Digital India

Over the years, there has been a lot of advancement in the digital sector in India. Services such as education, healthcare, financial services, market information, government services, and others are available online. Some of the advancements brought about by the government in recent times are as follows-

Approval for network operators


The operation of virtual network operators who don’t own spectrum or networks was approved by the Telecom Commission.

Lowering of spectrum usage charges


The Telecom Commission also recommended lowering spectrum usage charges from five percent to three percent of Adjusted Gross Revenues. However, the exception for one percent for Broadband Wireless spectrum continues.

Levy of service tax


As per the Budget 2016, a service tax of 14.5 percent was levied on spectrum acquisitions including those procured through auctions.


However, all of the above are not enough. In order for India to become a digital nation, a lot more has to be done. While all the various plans to achieve the same are highly ambitious and impressive, some basic measures and plans should also be implemented. Some of these include-

Basic access to the Internet


Not everyone has access to basic Internet services due to lack of plumbing and pipes required for connectivity. The infrastructure for connectivity is lacking in many parts of the country. Until this problem is solved, other important things like efficient delivery of electricity and e-governance cannot be attained.

Connectivity in rural areas


Even after 10 years of setting up Common Services Centers (CSCs), there doesn’t seem to be a template which can be replicated with sufficient momentum in order to connect everyone and everything on a global network level.

Spectrum in urban areas


In urban areas, there is too little spectrum that comes at an extremely high price. Moreover, there are many hindrances in using it to its highest capacity.


Along with the Indian Govt., there are many startups and well known broadband service providers such as Tikona that are trying to solve the aforementioned issues and are trying to make this distant dream come true.
