TIP’s internet bandwidth of 7 Mbps provides a high speed internet connection enabling our students to be online 24×7 and use a fast connection for research work. The link is asymmetric, which means that not only are we able to send data at a faster speed but also receive at the maximum speed available.
The latest hardware change allows for further increase in the bandwidth in future, without purchasing any new equipment. The entire TIP campus is also WiFi enabled.
