Shyam Spectra Pvt. Ltd., previously known as and Citycom Networks Pvt. Ltd. or Spectranet, is a Gurgaon headquartered internet service provider which offersfiber optic broadband services to residential, business, and enterprise customers in Delhi, Gurugram, Noida, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, and Pune.[1]

It is licensed to provide broadband, internet, national long distance, and international long distance services across India. Spectranet was founded by Punj Lloyd in 2000 to provide internet services to small and medium sized businesses in Delhi/NCR and Bangalore. India's Shyam Group bought the business from Punj Lloyd in June 2008.[citation needed] Subsequently, Spectranet expanded its reach within Delhi/NCR and Bengaluru and also began operations in Mumbai and Chennai.

In 2012, Spectranet launched Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) services in Delhi, Noida, Mumbai, Chennai, Pune, and Bangalore. In September 2017, Spectranet rebranded as 'Spectra'.[2] The motive behind the re-branding was to build more brand awareness and to showcase the greater motive behind the company's mission - "to fix the broken Indian broadband market".[3]

It offers fiber optic broadband and cloud-based services for residential and business users in Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Ghaziabad, Gurgaon, Mumbai, Noida, and Pune.
