ISPs slug it out to Net customers

Three major ISPs — BSES TeleCom, Dishnet DSL and Tata Internet Services — are vying with each other for tying up with housing complexes, large buildings and other clusters of customers for providing Net services. Industry sources said these private ISP players are taking VSNL, MTNL and BSNL head on. Corporate houses are increasingly disconnecting their existing lease-line/ISDN connections and are going for these ISPs. Currently the private ISPs are banking on VSNL’s gateways for connectivity, but are expected to grow faster after their own gateways become operational. All of them have major plans to commission their own gateways in a short span of time. While Dishnet has taken a lead in identifying large clusters of customers, BSES TeleCom and TISL are now trying to pick up new clients. Dishnet has already tied up with at least a dozen five-star hotels all over the country, with a few in Mumbai including The Leela and Sun-n-Sand, and large buildings like Bombay Stock Exchange, Essar House, Godrej IT Park, Diamond Bourse, and many buildings in Nariman Point. Dishnet and TISL are using digital subscriber line technology, which is a premium service. DSL is a broadband and high speed Internet connectivity technology designed for use on regular phone lines. BSES TeleCom is also providing DSL technology, but is focusing more on two other routes: direct optic fibre cable link up to the end user or fibre network up to the local cable operator, who will connect to the end user’s computer through the existing cable network. The company has tied up with a few resident associations and local cable operators in the Bandra-Khar area to provide Net services, while it is talking to many housing complexes in Mumbai’s suburbs, according to senior company officials. DSL technology can be used to transmit high quality video, carry out video conferencing and deliver high-speed data transmission without interrupting normal telephone services.
