Its good in Chennai. Two of my friends are using it.
Tikona is the worst ISP in Chennai. I have had very bad experience. Down times are high, worst service attendants, worst customer support. All the sweet talks are only till they sell you a connection.


Tikona has not removed FUP. I was interested in 2 mbps ULTD plan and I called them to confirm. 50 GB is the FUP (in 2mbps plan). I got it anyways. I am happy. No issues. untitled.jpg


Diablo's Rapier
I did a huge mistake turning to Tikona.
Been using Airtel's 2222 Plan for a long time (2Mbps till 30GB Then 1Mbps). However on screwed up day i decided to go for Tikona.
They were never able to deliver 4Mbps to my connection and right after 80GB the restriction starts, which might give you anything between 1-2Mbps of speed.
Registered at-least 10-15 tickets regarding issues with bandwidth but no one ever called back or listened to me. So I kept the Tikona connection and connected a Download Box to it (My EEEBox) and downgraded by Airtel to the least possible Unlimited Plan.
As for the calculation, the down loader is giving me an average of 16GB a day and using all my other devices on Airtel.

Though, for Rs. 1500, it isn't that bad of a plan for Ghaziabad Users.


Thanks a lot OP for the information, I am an existing Tikona subscriber. I got my plan changed, thanks to this post.;)


I was using ABB1499 plan (2mbps till 36 GB & 1 mbps after that), monthly rental 1499+Tax.
I changed it to ADULM4096 plan (4mbps unlimited), monthly rental 1499+Tax.
