Excitel is now only offering fibre-based broadband plans to its users across India. The internet service provider (ISP) earlier offered two types of broadband plans namely Reeltime and Fiber. Difference between the two was that Reeltime packs offered broadband plans with 100 Mbps speed while Fiber plans offered 200 Mbps and 300 Mbps speeds. The operator has now removed all of its Reeltime plans for its users now. As of now, there are 12 cities where Excitel provides its broadband services — Delhi NCR, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Bangalore, Lucknow, Kanpur, Prayagraj, Jhansi, Unnao, Visakhapatnam, Guntur, and Vijayawada. More on the story ahead.

For 12 months, the 100 Mbps plan costs Rs 436 per month, the 200 Mbps plan costs Rs 529 per month, and the 300 Mbps plan costs Rs 623 per month. Rest of the plans offered in Hyderabad are the same as of Delhi with a few distinctions such as there are no four months and nine months plans available. But there is a 300 Mbps plan available with six months validity which is not the case in Delhi.
The plans offered in Bangalore are the same as those offered in Hyderabad. Prices of the plans don’t differ on any of the cities and neither do the benefits. But there are some plans which are specific to select circles. So apart from minimal differences, Excitel now offers near identical plans across 12 cities in India.
