Results and Notes:

Pings: time taken to travel the single packet between server and your system. The smaller the ping time, the better connectivity. Pings below 100 ms is ideal for online gaming and VoIP services.

Ncell has the 1st rank and techminds has the last rank.

Cache control: it is the portion of data stored when you visit a site so that the same data can be send back to users in case of revisit. Generally no caching is the policies of best ISP in world. Also caching can be regarded as illegal if used with SSL connections and this is the reason why we have placed techminds as the worst that need to correct its setup. The less cache used, the fresh pages you see, the more used, the older pages you see.

Ncell has the 1st rank and techminds has the last rank.

DNS propagation time: it’s the time taken to update the DNS servers so that you can visit the sites at new their new IP address. Maximum of 8 hrs. is considered as ideal.

Ncell ranks 1st and techminds ranks the last.

Price: Cost for your usages.

Broadlink ranks 1st and Ncell ranks last.

Network uptime: it’s the time up to which the connection runs smoothly without any interference. The less the network error, the better is the service.

Ncell ranks best and Techminds ranks worst for having a network issue in every 4 hrs. on an average.

Sharing’s: it means the ratio used to provide the bandwidth among users. Low the sharing higher uptimes, higher the sharing lower uptime.

Broadlink ranks 1st and UTL ranks last. This is the only case where techminds isn’t the last.
