ACT Fibernet or Atria Convergence Technologies has recently revised its broadband plans across several cities to counter the JioFiber announcement. On the same lines, Bharti Airtel announced a new broadband brand identity called 'Airtel Xstream Fibre' with minimum speeds of 100 Mbps. As part of its revision, ACT Fibernet is now offering a 100 Mbps plan with 500GB of FUP at just Rs 749 per month in New Delhi. Bharti Airtel is providing up to 1 Gbps speeds in New Delhi, but ACT Fibernet has only up to 150 Mbps speeds. But which Internet Service Provider (ISP) is a better option for Delhi citizens? Well, let's find out the detail.
Note: Airtel Xstream Fibre broadband plans are almost the same across all the cities, but ACT Fibernet's broadband plans differ with every city. This article compares the broadband plans of Airtel Xstream Fibre and ACT Fibernet in Delhi.
ACT Fibernet Broadband Plans in Delhi: What They Offer
ACT Fibernet has a total of six broadband plans in Delhi right now and they start at Rs 749 per month (excluding taxes). The ACT Silver Promo plan priced at Rs 749 comes with 100 Mbps speeds, 500GB of FUP every month and 1000GB of extra data. The monthly rental of this broadband plan is Rs 749 and the post FUP speeds are 512 Kbps.
Next on the list are ACT Platinum Promo and ACT Diamond with speeds of 150 Mbps and monthly FUP limit of 1000GB and 1250GB, respectively. The prices of the 150 Mbps broadband plans from ACT Fibernet are Rs 999 and Rs 1,249, respectively. The ACT Remarkable broadband plan from ACT Fibernet ships with 125 Mbps speeds, 1500GB data every month, 2 Mbps after FUP speeds and 1000GB additional data at Rs 2,999 per month.
ACT Fibernet has two 200 Mbps broadband plans on offer in Delhi now- ACT Exceptional (Rs 3,999) with 2000GB FUP and ACT Phenomenal (Rs 4,999) with 2500GB FUP limit. All the ACT Fibernet broadband plans in Delhi come with 1000GB of additional data which will be valid for the duration of the subscription period. If a customer chooses an ACT Fibernet plan for just one month, then the additional data will be valid only for one month.
Besides these six broadband plans, ACT Fibernet also has two more plans- ACT Platinum Promo Entertainment and ACT Diamond Entertainment. As the name itself suggests, these plans are part of ACT's Netflix Entertainment plans. Customers choosing these plans will get Rs 300 off on their Netflix subscription every month if they choose to pay via ACT Fibernet. They both offer 150 Mbps speeds, but the FUP limit and prices differ.
Airtel Xstream Fibre Broadband Plans in Delhi: Benefits Detailed
After the recent revision, Airtel Xstream Fibre has the best broadband plans in almost every city and the unlimited data add-on is the icing on the cake. Similar to other cities, Airtel Xstream Fibre plans in Delhi start at Rs 799 and they go all the way up to Rs 3,999. The Airtel Basic plan priced at Rs 799 (excluding taxes) offers 100 Mbps speeds, 150GB of internet every month and unlimited voice calling via Airtel landline service. The plan also comes with Airtel Xstream app subscription.
Other Airtel Xstream Fibre plans are Airtel Entertainment priced at Rs 999, Airtel Premium plan priced at Rs 1,499 and Airtel VIP plan that costs Rs 3,999 every month. The Airtel Entertainment and Airtel Premium broadband plans come with 200 Mbps and 300 Mbps speeds, respectively. The Airtel VIP plan offers up to 1 Gbps speeds and unlimited data capped at 3.3TB or 3333GB every month. Airtel also has an unlimited data add-on which allows users to get unlimited data (3.3TB every month) by paying an additional Rs 299 every month to the company.
Furthermore, Airtel Entertainment, Airtel Premium and Airtel VIP plan also come with Airtel Thanks benefits. For the unaware, Airtel Thanks benefits include one-year of Amazon Prime subscription, three months of Netflix Basic plan, free ZEE5 Premium membership every month and free access to Airtel Xstream Premium.
ACT Fibernet or Airtel Xstream Fibre: The Best ISP in Delhi is?
Both ACT Fibernet and Airtel Xstream Fibre have impressive broadband plans on offer in Delhi right now. However, we believe that Airtel Xstream Fibre has an advantage with the unlimited add-on and Airtel Thanks benefits it is offering with the plans above Rs 1,000. However, if you want a basic broadband plan, you can choose the ACT Fibernet's Rs 749 plan that offers 500GB FUP every month. Airtel Basic plan of Rs 799 comes with only 150GB of data and the unlimited data add-on costs Rs 299 more every month. Also, Airtel's Rs 799 plan does not come with any Airtel Thanks benefits, so in this case, ACT Fibernet's Rs 749 plan has the upper hand.
But above Rs 1,000, it's Airtel Xstream Fibre altogether, courtesy of Airtel Thanks benefits and the impressive unlimited data add-on of Rs 299.
