Hey, so I will be moving to Chennai soon and I would like to know how is Jio Fiber? And if I take the 999 plan can I use the OTT apps that come in TV in other place or does it work only with set top box?

If thats the case, is Airtel good?

 

Please see this thread: https://broadbandforum.co/threads/list-of-the-major-ott-app-subscriptions-bundled-by-reliance-jio-fiber-and-whether-they-are-accessible-outside-the-jio-stb.204961/

Switched to Airtel Fibre. Getting 120-130 mbps as per fast.com, its costing me 799+GST a month.

 

I paid up front for 3 months, they gave me a router and free installation.

 

My earlier fibre connection (local) was giving me DNS issues - which was not allowing me to log on to Apex Legends.

Plus it was more expensive, with like 50mbps tops on the 5Ghz band. 

 

Happy with the switch :) Installation was smooth, done in an hour.

This message is an eye candy to see!
My experience with Airtel has been the worst.
I'm using their service for many years, running on their copper cable.


I saw some Airtel Fiber posters around my area and decided to call Airtel for upgradation. They always say they'll send an engineer to my premises (for almost a year). The local guy is stating that the delay is due to some tunnel guys. They are apparently cutting off the fiber wires. He said it'll take them some months to resolve this, LMAO. You should have heard his sudden change in tone when I told him I'm not getting a new connection and am only upgrading :clapping:

Just fed up with the after sales with Airtel. Jio is far better with this in my experience.
Let me know if I can contact anyone else to resolve this :)

My personal experience with Airtel has been nothing but stellar. 

Been using their postpaid service since 10+ years and broadband since 2 years. 

Jio is super fast at installing but their service is sh*t. Pretty much unusable for MP gaming.

Sad to hear this. At least 60 apartments in my society already have airtel fibre. They're constantly trying to get more people to take the service.

It was super fast for me. after sales part we shall see I guess. I hope it gets resolved for you soon bro.

Well I'm glad to hear this. Personally, my Airtel Fibre installation took like an hour max, so I'd say it quite fast. 

No complaints on that front.

 

I called my local airtel person at 11AM, and he explained the plans, and initiated the process. Got a payment link 10 mins later, and then by noon they were at my place.

Hour later they leave, fibre working perfectly.

 

Plus my main reason was for Apex Legends (MP gaming) so I'm happy I picked Airtel not Jio. My society has both, pretty much dead split on these two. Could've gone either route.

Pretty much what @Mr. Comingle and @North have said.

 

Called one day, set up the next day. 6 months with zero downtime so far, so I haven't had to experience any cs issues. Compared with Railwire (which I still have as a backup) that goes off at least 3 times a week, Airtel is a blessing.

I’ve been wanting to get a airtel connection, but they’ve been telling me for the past 2 years that they all install ftth cables… and that 40 mbps is enough speed and I should get a connection asap

 

:ranting:

Switched to Airtel a month ago. I've had some bumps. The landline never works (light on router also shows as off).

 

If i lodge a complaint they will fix it for that day and then next day it will go off again. Happened 4 times. I have got fed up of complaining again and again. 

 

Also they never send people to home to service because they say are getting harassed by local internet goons. But have no problem sending for new connection request lol.

Escalate it. Try twitter. Then the airtel presence email ID. If both don't work, complain to your nearest nodal officer.

I'm gonna have to report that I'm pretty happy with my Airtel xtream connection. About 2 months in and 0 downtime so far. They are over delivering in terms of promised speed as well. I am getting around 230-240 mbps up and down on a 200 mbps plan.
