RI Networks, a regional broadband service provider in India, will be investing more than Rs 15 crore in network deployment and brand building in FY 2016-17.

The company is offering broadband services at a starting price of Rs 550 per month for 10 Mbps connection in Delhi NCR market under the brand name timbl.

RI Networks, which has a national category A ISP license for internet services, will focus on providing broadband services (10 Mbps and higher speeds) for homes, small offices and small enterprise customers, and also offers Internet Leased Lines and Datacentre Services for enterprises.

RI Networks has plans to expand its broadband services in key towns in the northern states in the first phase.

RI Networks is offering broadband under the brand name timbl, at speeds starting with 10 Mbps, over fibre to the neighbourhood (FTTN) networks, with the last mile linkage over co-axial cable or fiber.

The broadband operator is offering flat fee plans with no over-usage charges. The technology company is offering free router with the service against a fully refundable security deposit.
