Sify (formerly Satyam Infoway Ltd.)[3] is an information and communications technology company. It was a subsidiary of Satyam Computers before being sold to Infinity Capital Ventures.[4] Sify played an important role during the early spread of Internet and e-commerce in India.


In November 1999, Sify paid 122.20 crore for a 24.5% stake in IndiaWorld Communications. Later, it acquired the remaining shares for 325.40 on 30 June 2000.[3]

In 2000, Sify sponsored the India Olympics team.[5] In March 2001, Sify made an agreement with Makemytrip to run Sify's travel portal.[6] In January 2002, Sify announced prizes for most emails sent under a 6-week contest called "Sify Greenmail", promoting emails as an ecofriendly way of communication.[7]

Sify used to run the i-way chain of Internet cafes.[8] In 2002, Sify introduced wireless last mile connections with speeds up to 256 kbps.[9] By August 2003, it had over 1,000 i-Way cyber cafes in India.[10] In December 2003, Sify launched video-conferencing facilities in its Internet cafes.[11]

In 2004, Sify, with Level Up Games, launched a MMORPG.[12] In June 2004, the Supreme Court of India set a legal precedent regarding domain names in the Satyam Infoway Ltd. v. Sifynet Solutions Pvt. Ltd. lawsuit.[1]

In November 2005, Satyam sold its remaining 31.61% shares in Sify to Infinity Capital Ventures, which is owned by Raju Vegesna, for US$62.62 million.[4]
