Internet users may soon have access to exceptionally fast internet-speed plan (nearly 1GBps) halfway through 2013 in over 9 Indian cities, stated the telecom infrastructure establishment Radius Infratel’s CEO Rajnish Wahi. He added that the same HD movie (say a regular 2-hour HD movie is around 2.5GB) that enjoyed hours of downloading with average broadband speeds, would soon be in in our possession within 30 seconds.

Even though Wahi refused to blurt out the names of the service providers or even the cities where these plans shall sprout, he did say that the discussions for the same are in process and network stationing’s already done to facilitate this in Gurgaon. He stated that Radius joined hands with real-estate biggies like DLF, Unitech, Emaar MGF, Ansal, Mantri, ATS, Omaxe, Vipul, M3M, Paramount and Prateek for the fiber-optic network which’ll provide ultra-speed broadband usage in structures developed by them.

Radius network has already soaked roots in about 3lakh homes in Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida, Greater Noida and Indirapuram (Ghaziabad), and pretty soon will branch out to Bengaluru, Chennai, Pune, Mumbai and Chandigarh, as per the Executive Director of Radius Infratel, Kuldeep Goyal. Currently, Bharti Airtel and Tata Teleservices have introduced the 100MBps plans for users, costing over INR 5000/- per month. Recently, Kansas City (USA) got the first ride on the 1 GBps internet speed.
