When it comes to affordable broadband plans, internet service providers (ISPs) offer uniquely curated plans for their subscriber base according to their needs. The demand for broadband plans in the affordable price segment has increased in the last couple of years as people had to tune in online for work, learning and even entertainment because of the pandemic. Further, the majority of the population in India is looking for economically sustainable plans that also offer ample data speed and there are multiple ISPs in the country offering such plans. Two such growing ISPs in the country are Excitel and ACT Broadband. While Excitel offers a single very affordable broadband plan, ACT on the other hand has more than one plan to offer. Mentioned below are the broadband plans in the affordable price segment offered by the two ISPs – Excitel and ACT Broadband along with the pack details.

One of the growing brands in India, Excitel uses European technology to offer seamless and consistent performance. Excitel only offers broadband plans with three-speed options – 100 Mbps, 200 Mbps and 300 Mbps. Thus, the most affordable offer from the telco is its 100 Mbps plan.
