There are several providers here, however, VSNL is the company that
controls the access to the satellite transponders and such.  Everyone
must go through VSNL for this, even STP.  Software tech parks are
growing quickly as they provide office space with internet connectivity
before the clients move in.  Of course, none of this helps when VSNL has
some problem and they take all their phones off the hook.
