Airtel Xstream Fibre is the new broadband brand identity for Bharti Airtel and the ISP even revised its plan a few weeks ago. Airtel Xstream Fibre plans start at Rs 799, according to their website. However, the company is still offering the base 40 Mbps broadband plan priced at Rs 699 in various cities right now. But there's a catch. The Rs 699 or the 40 Mbps Airtel Xstream Fibre plan is available for subscription only for three months or more. But on the brighter side, the company is offering unlimited data (3.3TB) every month. If a customer chooses the 40 Mbps broadband plan for three months, then the charges would be Rs 2,097 (excluding 18% GST). Airtel is also providing a 10% and 15% discount for customers choosing the same plan for six or 12 months respectively.
Airtel Xstream Fibre 40 Mbps Broadband Plan: Details and Benefits
A couple of weeks ago, Airtel Xstream Fibre revised broadband plans were announced by the company and they start at Rs 799 per month. The Airtel Basic plan is priced at Rs 799 and it offers speeds of up to 100 Mbps. However, Airtel Xstream Fibre still has a base broadband plan of Rs 699 that comes with 40 Mbps speeds. To recall, Airtel used to provide this plan even before the latest revision. But after the revision, the company is providing the broadband plan in three or six or 12 months subscription period only.
For instance, a customer can choose the Rs 699 broadband plan for three months by paying Rs 2,097 (excluding taxes). The same 40 Mbps plan is also available in six months and 12 months subscription model and there will be some discount being offered by the company too.
In our case in Hyderabad, the Airtel Xstream Fibre broadband plan of Rs 699 is offering speeds of up to 40 Mbps and the data offered by the company is 9999GB (9.9TB) which turns into 3.3TB every month. Additionally, this plan ships with free landline connection and free dual-band Wi-Fi router which is capable of delivering full speeds of 40 Mbps. As for Airtel Thanks benefits, users will get a free subscription to Shaw Academy courses, free Wynk Music and Airtel Xstream subscriptions.
Airtel Even Has a 16 Mbps Broadband Plan With 75GB FUP Limit
Besides the Rs 699 or 40 Mbps broadband plan, Airtel Xstream Fibre even has 16 Mbps FUP broadband plan on offer in select cities. While the Rs 699 broadband plan is available across the majority of the cities where the company is providing services, the 16 Mbps plan is currently available only in the cities where Airtel is not able to deliver faster speeds.
The 16 Mbps plan from Airtel Xstream Fibre is also available for subscription for at least three months. For three months, the plan costs Rs 1,749 and it ships with 75GB data every month. As mentioned above, the 16 Mbps plan is currently available in cities where Airtel is not able to deliver faster speeds which is the reason why the FUP limit is on the lower side. We're not sure whether the unlimited data add-on of Rs 299 will be applicable on this plan or not.
For the unaware, Airtel Xstream Fibre plans now start at Rs 799 and they go all the way up to Rs 3,999, providing speeds of up to 1 Gbps. The 1 Gbps unlimited data plan from Airtel is probably the best one right now with a decent amount of FUP limit and variety of OTT service subscriptions packed.
