    Don’t trust Reliance broadband Trivandrum Kazhakoottom Team
    I am a poor victim of Reliance broadband service.( me and my friends working in Techno park, sometimes doing work from home too , for our living)
    Because of my bad luck, I planned to take Reliance broadband wired connection by stopping current connection.
    My bad luck starts there
    On seeing Advertisement in olx I called Mr.: Shinu (Executive) for getting a new connection.
    He came to my house to talk about it.
    He asked me, one ID proof and a photo and to fill up a form and 800 rs for setting up connection.
    I have given all these including the amount on 15th march 2014, on the agreement that they will give me connection on 1st April.(bill CAF no : 17800032269742) He asked me only these documents
    Days gone. 31st March I called Shinu, to remind my connection. Then he told me, he is leave on 1st April, so connection can be given only on 2nd April. It can happen, I can understand.
    On 2nd April I again called this Guy, and then he told their executives will call you.
    Then one lady from reliance office called me and asked about the details.
    After some time, some other executive (don’t know his name) called me and asked to give, ID proof, rent receipt. Also he told me, there is a problem in cable. So they need to change the cable and connection can be given only 7th April 2014.
    In between Mr. Shinu had spoiled my ID proof and Application form that is what the new executive told me.
    Again, 7th April, they came to my home, to collect my rend agreement, they told, agreement is written in some other person’s name so they want his photo and ID proof.
    The second executive also agreed me to give connection on 7th April 2014 evening. Now we have given everything (not sure, if they will come tomorrow with some other documents missing, like ration card, Adhar card etc)

    Now they called not me, but my friend and told connection can be given on tomorrow (8th April 2014)

    Following are the numbers I contacted
    Mr Shinu: +91 8893391180, 9633935104, 9387761912. Email: shinu.rhr@gmail.com

    Second Executive: 8893775161

    I supposed to get connection on 1st April, today is 7th April, I have not got the connection yet even after paying the money and the documents.

    Now tell me how can we trust them?
    I am writing this because, in future, please be careful while calling these guys for any service.
    You should not be trapped. So don’t terminate existing connection if you are doing some business.
    If any reliance officers seeing this post please make sure, your customer is happy. Please beware of these kinds of executives. How can you justify these kinds of activities? Because of these guys, we are unable to work for 1 week. Please remember, if we are able to work, then only we can pay the bill amount.

    Reliance Broadband Sucks – Review
    A/C # 383900420150
    Has been down since 9th of April and even after escalation to the top officials, they come up with some absurd excuses
    11th April to 14th April – 50 The landlond of the building where they house there equipment switched off the power because of rent issues. Doesn’t RCom have money to pay rentals
    2) Municipal Corporation have cut their optical fibres and they are waiting for permission to relay it (this is a common excuse) – So does this mean that all that KMs of optical fibres laid by RCom were done without any official permission.

    The bottom line is that with Reliance communication you can expect a week off the grid. And to top that downtime, they have a bunch of idiots without any sense of ownership managing their customer care who care a damn what your complaint is.

    • Mrigendra October 11, 2013 1:46 am

      damn right you are… those effing idiots tell me the TRAI contention ration every time i call to compliant with my low speed. with a 4 mbps plan they give a shitty 200 kbps speed half of the time.

  • Gautam April 6, 2013 1:26 pm

    i live in eastern high, new town, rajarhat, kolkata. I wanna know if there is any service in my area? and if there is availability, how is the service and speed? should i go for reliance for the thunder 699 plan? if anyone staying in my area already using their service…please reply…thanks

  • Sameer Joshi February 20, 2013 11:13 pm

    I want to know about Electronic Distribution Panel (EDP) is installed at Ahmedabad.

  • Abdur rahman February 5, 2013 9:00 pm

    Airtel is best in BB. No nautanki of contenstion ratios. U get what ur promised

  • S S ARORA January 16, 2013 4:55 pm

    Booked 4mbps vide new plan of high speed on 12-1-2013 Rel. Comm. not responding when time of 48 Hrs was given that is over.Even after recalling no positive response. Who have taken connection will inform it is line like cable TV or with Antenna on roof.

  • Rajat Patel January 1, 2013 2:52 am

    Just to correct you, Reliance is a category “A” ISP, which means that it has a vast coverage of whole India according to DOT, not in a limited area like you’ve mentioned in the post. Correct that!! Otherwise a great post!!

    Thank you!

    • abhishek9883255774 March 14, 2013 12:28 pm

      still they suck , cheating me selling the 4mbps plan without even telling its upto 4mbps ratio of 1:8
      i hope u r from reliance thats y u taking their role models as DoT story . ,
      have u ever bragged the other fubby forums u see they are not taking responsibility for the undergoing down services , ahem all of that consumer is the only defaulter over here . ,shame on reliance

      • Varun Priolkar March 17, 2013 4:02 pm

        Are you that stupid? 8 bits=1 byte. When they say 4 megabits, it is 4/8=500 kilobytes.

        • gogoi March 18, 2013 11:04 pm

          4mbps = 4096kbps divided by 8 = 512kbps @ 1099/-

          best plan i think is the @699/- plan i.e 2mbps or 256kbps

        • Taseer June 15, 2013 5:48 pm

          Hi Varun
          You have mistaken, Abhishek is referring to contention ratio 1:8. That means 8 users will share 4MB and the speed will be divided equally among them.

          • Mrigendra October 11, 2013 1:51 am

            even after contention ration that should give 512 kbps. it gives sucking rate of 250 kbps. and there customer care has no EFFING idea what is contention ratio. they just have to memorize some commands to flush the dns and sit there bitching about TRAI.

  • nikhil December 22, 2012 5:34 pm

    anybody in chandigarh who can review the services…..plans are good but what about services?

  • Chinmoy December 8, 2012 4:37 pm

    Ordered 4Mbps ullimited plan and today I got the same .
    1.Speed is same as promised and
    2. bonus is free AV and 4Mbps Upload speed . I think this is based on Metro Ethernet and hence it has got Synchronous Upload speed .
    3. No Modem was provided . You can directly put RJ45 Enabled cable into PC or into Wifi Router .
    First Impression : Best plan in India

    • nikhil December 22, 2012 5:36 pm

      can u tell me where u from…..am from chandigarh…any review of sercices?

  • Frustated User December 6, 2012 1:25 pm

    @ Qd : same issue I am also facing.

    I have 549 for 1 MBPS plan. Activated in Nov 2012. In first few days speed was Above 1 MBPS. But after 15 days now my speed is 500 or 400 KBPS.

    Reliance guys saying that connection is to divided in 1:10 as per the TRAI guidelines.
    But the Reliance Sales Executive did not explain me about the same.

    You will not get what you pay :(

    • abhishek9883255774 February 28, 2013 3:35 pm

      well i agree with u totally speed is divided totally ,
      this is just another scam and scarface to the people of india .
      before applying the plan this was not explained to me otherwise i would not upgraded my older plan which was totally 1:1

  • Nilesh November 22, 2012 9:35 pm

    I want to buy the 699/- plan 2mbps unlimited, so on 19th I called up the customer care and gave my request.
    So pathetic that till today I have not got a call back from their sales team.
    If this the service for new customers I wonder how existing customers must be living with their services !

    • Anuj Soni December 23, 2012 9:31 am

      Yeah.. same happens for me. I requested on 15th dec but still no reply.
      I am from Bikaner (Rajasthan).

    • kannan r January 31, 2013 11:13 pm

      i am reliance old customer i got reliance 4mbps 1099 plan on 22oct12 the connection worked only for 12days thats it till 6th nov12 25days downtime and connected 1st dec 2012 again down for 10days finally terminated the line very bad cust care i ever seen.The edp is fixed in home that person must be paid with rent if not he will switch off the edp.

      • abhishek9883255774 February 28, 2013 3:36 pm

        thats correct one of the worst technical support at reliance the no1 provider ., i dont know who dedicate them honor them with no.1 tag awards

  • jarugu suryakumari November 17, 2012 10:41 pm

    i Hv reliance Net wired in the plan of 549 Night zoom( morning 500 kbps and night 1 mbps) Bt i never got the speed atleast 500 kbps nite also . the Reliance communications cheated and bluffed me . i am facing so problems with the speed and dwonload.

  • sunit November 17, 2012 9:29 am

    I took Reliance 2mbp unlimited brodaband just yesterday.I am getting a browsing speed of around 1.9Mbps while testing through speedtest.net and getting a download speed of around 250-260 kbps

    • Basavesh Shivakumar July 13, 2013 1:17 am

      You should know the difference between bit and bytes. 8bits = 1 byte.. while downloading you will get 256KBps 2048 / 8 = 256. b for bit and B for byte.

  • Jeet Barman November 14, 2012 5:06 pm

    Worst part about Broadnet is connecting your broadnet via WiFi Router. As soon as the DHCP renew ip address after leased time expires router start facing problem and you will have downtime till the moment Reliance has successfully renewed your IP and router IP assignment complete successfully.

  • Kyle Anderson November 14, 2012 1:28 pm

    is it avail in Delhi NCR area also ?

  • Mohit November 13, 2012 11:30 pm

    Which modem r they giving?
    Wi-fi or what?

  • raj November 13, 2012 9:20 pm

    @Ganesh
    thanks for your response.I too heard they blocked all entire torrent sites (along with airtel) in name of piracy when some of their produced movies released last year.A guy went to court & won the case.Court said they asked to deny access to that particular torrent,not to block entire site & fined just 15K to that ISP

  • Ganesh November 13, 2012 8:16 pm

    @Qd
    Yeah reliance are cheats. You have to fight back and tell them that you are paying for a 4MBps connection and you shouldn’t care about other persons. It’s like telling you will get 4MBps only if other ppl in ur area are NOT using the internet!

    @Kalyan
    Agreed!

    @raj
    I was on Reliance for about 11 months. I used to get disconnection issues like for 2 or 3 days every 2 months. But usually they fix it quickly. After about 10 months, they started some nasty tactics.

    I was on morning 1Mbps and night 2Mbps NO FUP, unlimited plan. I was supposed to get 2Mbps by 10 PM every night. Gradually they started delaying the shift time. I don’t mind about 5 to 6 mins. But consistently the time got later and later. Sometimes I will start getting 2Mbps by 10.30 PM! Half an hour is too much of a delay! Customer care was useless.

    They throttle youtube, vimeo, metacafe and other video sites. Even during nights (2Mbps) I was unable to watch 380p videos in youtube without buffering and interruptions! But in my uncle’s home I was able watch 380p videos continuously using BSNL@512Kbps!!

    Then there are the torrent sites. They will block all sites instantly whether there is a court announced ban or not. As they are connected with Big Entertainment. Everytime Big Entertainment releases a movie, they will block everything (including utube and all torrent sites)! Even if there is no court order, Cx care will tell you that the block was implemented by TRAI’s order!!!! I will never ever get a Reliance connection! They are utter cheats and ALWAYS come WITH “INVISIBLE STRINGS ATTACHED”.

  • raj November 13, 2012 12:07 pm

    @Debmalya Datta
    thanks for your feedback.can u pls post download speed screenshot.I think u must be getting around 470-490 KB/sec if u r on 4mbps connection.

  • raj November 13, 2012 11:59 am

    @VB
    +1.Made a request,let us see what happens.btw only first 3 plans available in chennai.I heard reliance will block streaming sites,torrent ports,lowering bandwidth before FUP even if we are on unlimited plans.Is it true? Any guys from chennai pls share ur experience.

    How is the service in Salem (Tamilnadu)?.

  • Sourav November 13, 2012 12:35 am

    how is he service in bhopal?

    • Abdur rahman February 5, 2013 8:54 pm

      I am not impressed with the Demo they gave me for 2 Mbps plan. The plugged their laptop into the dabba from which cable comes, but still the test on speedtest.net were not satisfactory; then they came up with the ghisa pita same old contention ratio explanation. The contention ratios are as high as 1:10 ie u’ll get one-tenth the speed ur promised.

  • Chinmoy November 12, 2012 11:10 pm

    Ordered 1099 , lets see how it works ! BTW, I am from Kalyani

  • rudresh angadi November 12, 2012 11:07 pm

    good plan

  • Kalyan November 12, 2012 10:02 pm

    Customer service just bull shit and customer care people are crap. Once you have a problem, that’s it. Otherwise, it is very good.

    Hi Debmalya,I am thinking about getting this connection.My location is at Lake Town.Garia is hotspot for Reliance.I have used 3G (Rev B)there,it stays @21.1 mbps constant without a single disconnection.But at lake town,we get the same speed but with a hell lot of disconnections.
    So little bit skeptical about Reliance.
    Can you please tell us about your experience when faced with technical as well as network issue(if any) and how Reliance Team resolved it?

    @Pranajit
    I am a person who can’t live without internet for a minute. I have faced troubles, but reliance team was quick and responded very well. I have faced 5-6 problems in a span of 2 years and all of them was solved within 2 days, by the way I am speaking of braoadband, no idea about cdma

Now I do not have to keep my computer turned on for 24 hours, almost all torrents have been downloaded. By the way I stay near Garia Stn.

    At least India is getting some good speed Non-FUP plans at affordable rate and unlimited.

    These plans are the best plans in the country even better than Beam Tele.

    Contention Ratio :

    • Abdur rahman February 5, 2013 8:58 pm

      Contention ratio is a good way 2 make fool. Push high bandwidth plans and then give low bandwidth and bring contention ratios in between and take the name of TRAI.

  • Ram November 12, 2012 11:44 am

    Not bad, the true unlimited 4mbps plan is nice!

  • Qd November 12, 2012 11:35 am

    Hello friends, I am Qadir from baroda, Gujarat.

    I have subscribed a new Reliance Thunder plan 699 – 2mbps , three days ago.

    Yesterday @evening it was been activated. i have checked my speed via speed test – it was perfect 2mbps. , i had used till late night with same 2mbps speed.

    But from today @morning i checked my speed, it showing me only 500kbps to 600kbps (checked via Speed Test), i shocked and called to customer care, firstly they said wait for 4-5 hours it will be resolved.

    i did wait for 6hrs with same problem and then i called to CC – now they are saying, the 2mbps speed is divided to 10 people as per TRI Rules. and they said Minimum 20%speed your getting so we will not take any complaints for you.

    So this is biggest cheat by this Company Reliance. You all guyz are getting perfect speed but that will be no more if more then one people will get same plan in your area ur speed will be divided.

    So guys just do confirm with this. and also give me any solution for this….

    • gaurav January 1, 2013 11:43 am

      Hey I’m frm Baroda too.. New sama road.. Just subscribed for Thunder 549 plan.. Let see whether they keep promise of providing 1mbps speed all day or not.. Will inform you within a week..

    • abhishek9883255774 February 28, 2013 3:39 pm

      there is no solution if u stick with the reliance the biggest scam maker .
      better would be to quit from them and safe your pocket .
