If you are looking for using broadband at home and are good with 40 Mbps speed, Airtel is the right choice here as it offers Unlimited FUP at just Rs. 699.

Netplus is offering 50 Mbps speed and Unlimited FUP at Rs. 599, which is more affordable than Airtel. But, Netplus’ reports are not satisfactory for some cities, in terms of customer service.

Price Range – Rs. 800 – Rs. 1100

Airtel Broadband does not have a plan in the range of Rs. 700 to Rs. 1100. In this price range, Act Fiber is the right choice as 75 Mbps speed, and 320 (monthly)+1500 GB(yearly quota) of the internet is generally enough for most users. Netplus is again a good alternative here.

Crazy about technology, sports, cinema, my colleagues, and useless anecdotes. Far too connected and curious. When I'm not on my smartphone, you can find me tinkering anything tech!
