Spectra will be the first ISP in Bangalore to offer 1 Gbps services with unlimited bandwidth at a competitive price for both residential and enterprise customers. 

Spectra is one of the fastest growing Indian ISPs and its aggressive broadband offer is changing the competitive landscape in Bangalore. Its customers, many of whom are demanding more bandwidth, are being offered a 'step jump' in bandwidth, service quality and reach, at very competitive price points This has significantly changed how broadband is consumed in the region, contributing to the Indian government's goal of making India one of the top ten countries worldwide for broadband.
