In January 2010, Pacnet India (Pacific Internet India Pvt. Ltd.) obtained its National Long Distance (NLD) and International Long Distance (ILD) licenses from the Department of Telecommunications of India (DoT) and has also obtained full security clearance from DoT. This complements its Internet Service Provider (ISP) Class A license, which allows Pacnet India to offer a full suite of Internet connectivity solutions, as well as a range of managed and hosted services in India.

Pacnet’s capability to offer international connectivity in India was made possible by the building of its international gateway PoP in Chennai in 2011 with interconnection to Singapore and Pacnet’s EAC-C2C subsea cable and Pacnet’s trans-Pacific cable EAC Pacific. These connections allow businesses in India to get access to high-speed connectivity into Asia, as well as on to the US through a single network.
