Bharti Airtel has its broadband presence across several major cities in India. While Airtel is not as big broadband service provider like BSNL, it’s covering a lot of major cities like Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Mumbai and so on. Hathway Broadband also has a strong foothold in several popular cities including Bengaluru, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad and a few more South Indian cities. Reliance JioFiber is now official and the prices will start from Rs 700 for the base 100 Mbps plan. Broadband companies have been working on increasing speeds to the customers alongside adding other benefits like OTT app subscriptions, extra data benefit on select plans and more. Airtel V-Fiber is a leader when it comes to additional content offerings, while Hathway leads the chart in providing affordable broadband plans. Read on to know which ISP has the upper hand right now.

Different Approaches to Pricing Broadband Plans

The major difference between the two broadband service providers is how they price their services. While Hathway Cable and Datacom goes for a predatory pricing technique, Airtel V-Fiber has a different approach. Hathway has decided to cut the prices of its broadband plans to make them more attractive and affordable. However, when it comes to Airtel, the company has decided to bundle lots of freebies with the plan to make it worth buying for the customer.

Hathway Broadband is Providing Affordable Plans

Also, Hathway Broadband has introduced a new plan for its subscribers in almost all the circles that it operates in and this plan comes for Rs 399. This plan stands out from the rest of the plans being provided by other ISPs since it offers unlimited data at Rs 399 and that too for 50 Mbps. Subscribers have to pay the Rs 1,999 deposit upfront after which they have to pay a monthly rental of Rs 399 simply. What’s worth noting is that although the plan offers a sweet deal when it comes to speed and data, there are no added benefits in this plan.

Airtel V-Fiber Bundling Lots of Additional Benefits

As opposed to Hathway which is betting on affordability, in order to get the best benefits in Airtel V Fiber, the subscribers will have to spend at least Rs 1,099 per month to avail the benefits of the plan. Under the Airtel Thanks scheme, subscribers will be able to get subscriptions to services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, ZEE5 and Airtel TV Premium. The cheapest plan to offer these benefits includes the Rs 1,099 plan, which offers 300GB data at 100 Mbps. The users get three months of Netflix subscription and a yearly Amazon Prime subscription. The Airtel plans also come with a data carryover feature.

Hathway Providing Lifelong 50 Mbps Broadband Plan at Just Rs 349 per Month

In some cities, Hathway Broadband is providing a lifetime 50 Mbps broadband plan at just Rs 349 per month. Yes, Hathway has been providing a 50 Mbps broadband plan without any FUP limit in Hyderabad city at Rs 349 for a few months now. The Lifelong Binge offer from Hathway is currently available only in Hyderabad city, where Airtel V-Fiber has two unlimited FUP plans of Rs 699 and Rs 1,299 and a premium plan of Rs 1,599 with 300 Mbps speeds.

Which One to Go For?

In case you can wait for a few weeks to get a broadband connection, then it would be our suggestion to go for Reliance Jio Fiber, of which plans will be revealed on September 5. If you need to have a connection now and affordability is your priority, then Hathway Broadband would be the more obvious choice, but in case you would like to have lots of content subscription then Airtel V-Fiber has the most attractive plans.
