10 Most Promising Internet Service Providers - 2017
“The Internet is becoming the town square for the global village of tomorrow. If your business is not on the internet, then your business is out of business” – Bill Gates. Nothing could more precisely summarise the importance and impact the internet is having both on the businesses and end users. As per IMAI’s (Internet and Mobile Association of India) latest survey, the number of Internet users in India which was 432 million in December 2016, is expected to cross the 450 million mark by June this year. Further amplifying this massive internet penetration is the ever increasing smartphone user base which crossed the 300 million milestone last year.
Evident from these statistics, the Indian internet market is witnessing a radical transformation; with the Indian Government announcing initiatives like ‘Startup India, StandUp India’ and ‘Digital India’, a large number of companies across varied industries are taking birth each day, leading to an unsparing competition across industries. Realising that having a strong online presence is the only way to survive this cut-throat competition, businesses are extensively embracing internet as a means to solidify their business operations and efficiently make an impact on their target customers.
Owing to their varying business size, each company has a specific need of their own, which stresses on the need of customisation in the internet services that they use. Although there are many stalwarts ruling the internet domain from decades, not all ISPs have been successful in delivering secure, high-speed and customised internet services as per the customers’ requirements.
