Standalone:

In the ISP segment there is immense competition in both the twin states of TelanganaState & Andhra Pradesh State. On one hand Home grown and dominant localized Statelevel A & B category ISPs are fighting for larger market shares with bigger brandpresence & reach. On the other side National TELCOs are also directly marketing alltheir Voice Data & Video service offerings in the same markets. Margins are shrinkingwith incremental fixed costs. Fall in Internet Bandwidth buying prices is getting negatedwith higher demand from end consumers from the point of view of both quality &quantity of bandwidth which poses a challenge in optimizing usage of Internet bandwidthmanage the band thus not. State Governments on both sides are exploring the possibilityof providing Free Wi-Fi in select Cities & principal towns. This may add to theexisting fierce competition. Additionally Reliance Jio Communications is expected to playhavoc in the market with their aggressive combo offerings and marketing campaigns. Againstthe above backdrop Nettlinx has strategically positioned itself in a niche market segmentcomprising of larger reliance on SMEs Educational Institutions & Business Broadbandthan relying on third party Cable Operators network as opposed to only the home broadbandsegment & whole sale bandwidth by most others. Under these circumstances Nettlinxwill be able to overcome competition and scale over all the hurdles and achieve thedesired and budgeted financial numbers.
