Okay, so exactly after a year I am posting a blog post again! Hope you are all doing good.. This post is exactly about my experiences using Hathway H-Fiber after using it for 60 days. Generally I am a very old user of one of the most popular ISP – Alliance Broadband in West Bengal and have been using their service for 8+ years now who took Hathway H-Fiber for stability and service level tests.
So how did it all began?
One day my LCO, who was once a franchise of Alliance Broadband but changed to Hathway due to some internal clash asked me about Hathway Broadband H-Fiber service and promised me free installation service. Being into ISP industry for some time now, I always wanted to research and experience various ISP networks and thus I readily accepted the offer. The pricing of Hathway Broadband H-Fiber as told by my operator & as advertised was also very cheap –
- 50 mbps Unlimited – Rs. 500+GST
- 75 mbps Unlimited – Rs. 800+GST
- 100 mbps Unlimited – Rs. 1000+GST
I was excited to see how Hathway Broadband H-Fiber managed to provide at such low costs! So, the installation day came, I was provided with a GEPON connection with Optilink ONU with Gigabit Port. They were kind enough to offer a free demo of the base package (with FUP) for 5 days too.
What happened during the Demo Period!
Hathway Broadband H-Fiber provided a PPPoPE connectivity with dynamic public IP. Good thing was that though ICMP was blocked at their Edge but still remotely your public IP could be accessed and you can connect to your home network. Cool! So my intensive testing began – speedtest, single thread & multi threaded downloads, stress testing and some other stuffs. Continue reading…
