Tier 2 Internet Service Providers in India

Tier 2 ISP (Internet Service Providers) plays an important role in distributing internet connectivity from submarine cables to land masses, they can sell their bandwidth to businesses, data centers, enterprises, offices, and even consumers.


Since tier 2 ISP manages everything on the ground they handle all the telecommunication roles in a country. They often share most of the bandwidth to Tier 3 ISP for redistribution at a cheaper rate. In India we have numbers of Tier 2 ISP, some famous ones are:

The best thing is India just got a high bandwidth boost in recent years when Reliance Jio entered in the telecom market and created a revolution in the business of internet.

Some notable ISP like RailTel also joined the initiative of connecting India’s unreached locations with a pan-India fiber-optic network following the railway track.
