RailWire Broadband Service - Review

This review will give you detailed information about the new RailWire Broadband And it's plan rates. For those who are fed up with various Internet Service Providers (ISP), this will be a smart alternative. I am personally using the RailWire Broadband for more than a month and I would really like to share the experience with you. Scroll down to know more about RailWire Broadband and their services.

RailWire is an initiative of RailTel Corporation (Ministry of Railway), providing broadband and Virtual Private Network (VPN) service at low cost. It also aims to provide broadband on demand both on rural & urban areas with affordable price and reliable speed. One of the major objectives of RailWire is to achieve 175 million broadband connections by 2017.

What Makes RailWire Special?

RailTel Corporation is unique by the way of connectivity they provide. The medium used for the broadband connection at the user end is optical fibre cables which assures reliability and high speed data transmission. RailTel has already collaborated with the local cable operators to get maximum exposure thereby providing high speed internet facility to each and every home, industries, etc.

RailWire Broadband is a optical fiber broadband service which in many way defeats other broadband competitors in terms of speed, reliability, stability and accessibility. As already said, the RailWire Broadband service aims to provide both urban and rural areas with high speed connectivity giving equality to everyone. The fiber optic cables have already spread throughout the nation and the areas that even other ISP's never thought of internet access.

RailWire Broadband Connection Plans

RailWire Internet tariff plans

The following image shows how cheap the internet connectivity they provide to their users. You can always expect the maximum bandwidth they offer since the transmission is through Optical fibers which uses light wave for transmission and the loss is negligible almost nothing.

You can try out with basic plans starting from 449/- (Excluding Tax), which offers unlimited internet with an FUP limit of 10GB. After the FUP your bandwidth will be reduced to 512Kbps from 1Mbps. The tax fee will be 14.5% of the plan as per the new revised rules. You can opt for maximum of 10Mbps plans but they are not available everywhere. Instead everyone can access the internet at 8Mbps unlimited plans.
Note: The Broadband tariff may change in different states.

How to Apply For RailWire Broadband

So everything looks pretty good, right? I would really recommend everyone to test RailWire Broadband and share their experience with us. If you're interested in RailWire Broadband and want to apply for a new Broadband connection, just do the following:

At present, RailWire Broadband providing their services with 4 different types of installation process:
1. F.T.T.H
2. Metro Ethernet
3. Wireless
4. Ethernet over Coaxial Cable

The type I am using is Ethernet over Coaxial cables, which is provided by the local cable operator. You just need to contact the cable operator and check whether they are joined in this campaign with RailWire. Mostly, they will and you will get the connection in just couple of days.
The Ethernet over Coaxial cable will use the modem as the installation equipment and you will have to pay 2000 for non Wi-Fi modem and 3500/- for Wi-Fi enabled Router+ Modem. You will get a user id and password for connecting through Ethernet.


To conclude, I simply suggest this massive project to everyone who is eager to get a high speed, reliable, stable and cheap broadband service. I am completely satisfied with their service and I am getting fast, stable connections, with offered bandwidth all the time. So, it's now up to you and have any doubts please do comment.
