This is my first post in India Broadband Forum and I want this post to be useful for other forum members. Recently You broadband in Chennai started migrating coaxial to fiber(GPON broadband). I'm happy to say i'm one of the luckiest customers to get GPON broadband and I want to share my thoughts. Earlier I've subscribed for 1 Mbps unlimited plan which I won't get committed speed and downtime most of the time. So, i thought of changing ISP to either Airtel or BSNL but You Broadband customer care called me and informed that now they are migrating coaxial to fiber broadband so there won't be any speed issues hereafter. It's been a month i've been using the GPON broadband and till no speed issue and importantly no downtime. The only problem as of now (Not all the time that too in Chennai ) is in case of power cut the box (Modem) which they have kept on terrace will not work and you have to wait until the power is restored.
My Plan Name: YOU PRIVILEGE 50GB 1 Month
My Plan: 16 Mbps till 50GB then 768 Kbps unlimited @Rs.975/- per month.
GPON Coverage in Chennai as of my knowledge: Nungambakkam, T.Nagar (Kindly contact You Broadband customer care for coverage details on other areas)
Regarding YouTube streaming and Torrent download speed:
YouTube streaming: default 720p and if you change to 1080p manually also no lag
Torrent download speed: 1.1 MB/s (Client: uTorrent) didn't noticed max speed
If you have power backup in your apartment there won't be any problem. Please find my speed test result below
