    Tikona makes you login from every device that is connected unlike other service providers. With the likes of Hathway you just login on one machine and use internet on all the other machines after that without having to login but with Tikona you have to login using every device that is in use. Tikona has a browser login so Chromecast wont work with this setup from what I understand.

    One way is to get a static IP so you wont have to use login browser and connection would be always on but it is still a good idea to ask Tikona themselves. Even better would be to get Tikona demo and make the guy show you how it can be used with Chromecast if atall.

    I would personally strongly advise against using Tikona. 4Mbps and whatever not looks good on paper and advertisements but what matters is the actual speed that the end user gets at his/her place. Look at some of the reviews posted on the forum to get a clear picture of what to expect and the quality of their customer service.

    Thanks SmoothVibes,
    I am using Tikona since 2009 and not getting any problem like slow speed, i have 2mbps plan and using modem which is provided by Tikona (C shaped). I want to buy CHROMECAST or WD TV LIVE which runs on wifi. I am not sure about Tikona WiFi supports or not. As per your advice will contact customer care for technical details. Thank you once again.

    With a static IP I believe it should work but not with a dynamic IP that normal users get. It would be better to give Tikona a quick call.

    I sent Tikona a few e-mails in 2008-2009 and some in 2012, its been a long time and no response yet. If I was you I wont wait for Tikon's reply.

    True, even I had Tikona in the past, for me, their customer service was as equivalent to their BB service. yep, you guessed it right, BAD.

    Switched to hathway long-back.
