    Guys PLEASE don't go for TIKONA broadband, its the worst boradband service I have ever seen.

    First of all they took 3 weeks to do the installation after payment, once installed there is not continuous connection, every now and then it gets disconnected.

    I had opted for 300 kbps unlimited connection but I don't even get 50kbps browsing speed. Its really slow, worst. Please don't opt for it!! I am suffering a lot!!

    I've got very close view of Tikona. My room-mate has this and every month he calles up CustomerCare to threat that he's gonna leave it and no payment and 10 mins of shouting etc. Then they fix the connection and again at the end/middle/anytime the problem starts....

    yeah, tikona is ****.. i have it. Their customer service is as good as dead. Their technical team is ****. And service is very poor.
    Advice to other to not to opt for it.. its been 3 month and i will continue another 2 month as then i wil leave this city, but i am dead sure i am not going to pay bills.

    Absolutely agree with everyone here. The installation personnel didn't even know how to crimp the cable properly. Very frustrating customer care. I'm going back to the good old, albeit slower, tata broadband.

    Omfg...I was about to change my 2mbps Tata Wimax connection to Tikona as Tata has started giving me problems with frequent disconnection, incorrect billing etc...but after seeing this thread the only connection I can choose now is Airtel:(:x

    I just want to say one line from my experience of Tikona Internet connection - It is better to not have Internet connection than having a Tikona Internet connection. :-x :-x :-x

    lol.....one of my friend applied for Tikona. And after 2wks of not doing installtion, I suggested him to leave it and go for other connection. As he was in hurry he choosed Alliance. Surprized......He spoke to Alliance at around 11AM and the installation was done within 3PM.

    Ooops. I thought that Tikona was better (based on my friend's experience, maybe he was lying!)
    That way BSNL is really great. No DCs ever.

    Using tikona for 6-8 months and I live in Bandra-w. No problems whatsoever. I get usually 40-50Kb/s on torrents (using 300Kbps line). No downtimes, issues, etc. For some odd reason they blocked couple of review sites but they unblocked it in an hour's time. Bill comes on time- something that my previous ISP reliance failed to do (which they eventually did do for reliance energy and telephone. Disconnected telephone and plan to switch to tata line, most likely do the same with Tata as they are giving 20-30% as I am planning to put something that will increase energy consumption).

    Pretty sure their service/experience is drastically different between multiple places.

    Re: TIKONA Broadband Review Bangalore- Dont Take please save yourself

    My Tikona id is 1104121905, took connection on 25/7/2011 at HSR Layout Bangalore. However it working only on the 1st day and never after that. i have made 18 complaints but no action has been taken by
    Tikona. I must have made 15 calls but now the area manager Krishna and sales person Sanjeev Agarwal disconnects phone when I call them. Krishna gave personal assurance during the time of demo that the speed and bandwidth is guaranteed but now I face 50% packet drops. I have request for refund of my installation and connection money on 30/7/2011. As expected, I don’t even get a response back.
    How unprofessional Tikona employees can get, shame on them and thier behaviour.
