Hathway Cable and Telecom, India's largest cable broadband service provider, recently selected Broadcom Corporation’s (News - Alert) DOCSIS 3.0-based chipset to power its new high-speed broadband.

Officials said that Hathway is the first multi-system operator to launch a DOCSIS 3.0 network in India, which is capable of transmitting data at speeds greater than 300 megabits per second.

With the help of Broadcom's DOCSIS 3.0 chipsets, cable operators such as Hathway are able to economically and reliably expand services to support high value interactive applications, like on-demand programming, for both residential and commercial customers.

Broadcom has been instrumental in developing the DOCSIS 3.0 standard for cable networks and enabling faster transmission speeds, by adding advanced media access control capabilities.

By leveraging DOCSIS 3.0 chipset, Hathway can dramatically expand value-added services to their subscribers, and provide the enhanced entertainment experience viewers have been waiting for since long.

“Broadcom's advanced DOCSIS 3.0 chipsets provided the innovation we needed to cost-effectively upgrade our equipment and meet growing consumer demand for on-demand video consumption to our subscribers across the country," said Jayant Changrani, Hathway Cable and Datacom President of Technology, in a press statement.

He further added, "Our subscribers will be among the first in the region to enjoy a vastly improved entertainment experience capable of uninterrupted streaming of HD content and a multi-room, multi-screen experience."

Broadcom Corporation is a major player and innovator in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications. Its products seamlessly deliver voice, video, data and multimedia connectivity in the home, office and mobile environments. 

A couple of months back, TMCnet reported that HATHWAY CABLE has introduced 50 Mbps broadband service in HYDERABAD. Officials said that around Rs 750 for 25 GB of usage at 50 Mbps would be charged by Hathway.
