    Default Information regarding leased line tariff and Cat C ISP license

    Hi,
    I am from Cuddalore, Tamil Nadu.
    I am planning to start a Wireless internet service in my area.
    I do have a WISP network plan for that area.
    I do researched a lot regarding ISP license and Internet Bandwidth. But I cannot come to a conclusion yet.

    Please help me out of here.

    As per the new license fee structure,
    Total budget of Class C license around 90k ( including filing fee + processing fee + FBGC + PBGC )
    And annual fee of 8% of gross.

    1) What would be the time taken for processing and issuance of license after applying.

    2) What type of company should I register for applying ISP license ( ex: llc, pvt ltd, etc). Is there any other requirement other than that.

    Bandwidth :
    I am planning to serve 40+ connections
    And speed rated between 512kbps to 1 Mbps per connection.

    3) Does a 4 Mbps leased line could serve my purpose
    4) What would be the annual budget of a 4Mbps internet leased line.

    PS: I had worked in a wisp, where they offered a leased line of 1 Mbps @ 5500rs/month in chennai. But they don't have feasibility in my area.
    BSNL, Reliance, Railtel have POPs here.

    If I was you I would wait a month or so and see what sort of tariffs Reliance JIO 4G comes out with because if they get aggressive with pricing then you may have to rethink your business plans and go back to the drawing board. RIL has deep pockets (read very deep) and they can afford to bring the priced down to a level where local cable operators (and wisp) would not be profitable any more and they have an added plus which is low latency which will be comparable to cable connections especially for fixed wireless 4g connections.

    That is the reason I said Reliance 4G and not Airtel 4G. It would be wise to check Reliance prices before spending any money unless you are ready to work on paper thin margins. Reliance 4G's target market is the population that does not have good quality broadband yet and that included markets where local cable/wisp operators are operating.

    @bhardu, Yes I am sure I want only Cat. C license. I am planning to roll out a Fiber+Ethernet based ISP in my City and Cat.C license is enough.

    http://www.dot.gov.in/sites/default/...%20%282%29.pdf <<< List of Latest approvals in 2014 and shows approval on Cat. C too.

    Unfortunately DOT website don't have any general contact email or any way to download the latest application. If you know how to get the application form, pls share.

    @bhardu, Yes, I am 100% sure that I need Cat. C license only.
    Mainstream ISPs have Cat.A or Cat.B license because they cover entire India or full states. I am planning to roll out within my city/SSA limits.

    Reliance communications and Reliance JIO are two different companies not the same. Rcom is an adag company and RIL is run by Mukesh Ambani.

    End of the day it is your money. I just wrote what i believe is a possibility.

    Yes admin, you are right about competing against big players.

    But the thing is wisp is not alone my interest. I am planning to run a intranet shopping portal like flipkart inside my wisp network. Where local vendors list their products and my customers can buy it via cash wallet on their account.
    I am having a lot of ideas to run in that network along with the internet service. Like intranet online magazine, classifieds etc.
    And monetizing this network via local ads.
    They will be bandwidth free sites.

    So what I need is information to calculate the costs and expected profit. I m not going to invest by the next day. I am just analyzing the scenarios.

    Can anybody help with my queries at the first post

    Intranet, Magazine and classifieds etc on a network with 40 something customers is not going to make much business sense. I believe Ive been in the advertising business long enough to know what would make money and what would not. For such things you are better of launching a website instead of trying to do this on intranet where scope would be limited where as on the internet there are no limits to the amount of people you can reach provided you have something to offer that people are looking for. Sooner or later good things get noticed.

    I never suggested abandoning your idea(that is purely your own interpretation) . I dont know why you posted it here if you were not open to comments. I believe your idea is stupid and I said it. If you are not open to criticism then why post it on a public forum?

    Hey cool I am not against criticism.
    As you said I already have a bunch of websites where I am running AdSense.
    But what I am upset for is I don't get any answers to my questions yet.
    My questions are general right.

    I never said that. I said I have experience in advertising. Adsense is one of them.

    1 mbps LL is enough for 8-12 clients of 256 kbps
    2 mbps LL is enough for 15-17 clients of 256 kbps
    4 mbps LL is enough for 25-30 clients of 256 kbps
    10 mbps LL is enough for 80 clients of 256/512/1024 kbps mixed
