Speeds are just okay,  but I do see some downtime most of the time. 

 

I also had alliance broadband also earlier but I'm happy with the current one.

I was having speednet unique broadband 5mbps unlimited connection at ₹370. But of late it has become so poor that YouTube is also buffering like hell so i stopped recharging broadband and started recharging work from home pack of jio 4G LTE. Complete peace of mind.

Another thing is that these local broadband providers dont provide uniform speed in all usage. For example my LCO told me my connection was only for browsing and not for watching online video. But a good 5mbps connection should handle video at least in 480p resolution well. But my connection before the lockdown could only handle YouTube well but cant play 144p video in other websites. This is blatant violation of net neutrality.

Mobile data though limited, still it gives almost uniform speed to any kind of internet usage, be it for browsing, downloading or streaming online video.

What do you guys think?

@aniruddha-dhar yes it is against net neutrality but operators genrally try to load balance from time to time as streaming media's are the ones hogging brandwidth. That's why you will find some operators giving higher peering speed to youtube & hotstar also sometimes reducing upload speed while increasing downstream speed.

I remember using Excitel back in 2015 & 2016 in Delhi( pre Jio era), they had the best value for money plans, speeds were good too but during initial days service was very poor, though it improved later on. Hope some users from Delhi region can update about current status of excitel
