Tata Sky is the leader in India’s DTH market. However, the company seems to be focused on expanding its footprint in the broadband segment as well. In such an effort, Tata Sky Broadband has revised its plans to now offer 100Mbps download speeds. The revised plans are aimed to challenge Reliance JioFiber, which is yet to become a mainstream home broadband offering in the country. Tata Sky Broadband also has competition from Airtel Xstream Fibre, ACT Fibernet and other internet service providers.
